Enjoyed on tap at the brewery at the BB Temptress release party 12/7/13. Reviewed from notes. Served in a beautiful Bourbon Barrel Temptress 2013 snifter.
Appearance: A dark brown almost black body, with a moderate head the color of malted milk. Head sticks around for a tiny bit and leaves around some thick lacing.
Smell: Typical lactic and roasty dark chocolate smell I get from the normal Temptress. I'm not getting much in the way of bourbon character here, but it smells great anyways.
Taste: Where's the bourbon? Unfortunately a weak point, relatively speaking. Still great, lots of bitter dark chocolate and sweet, milky sugar. But I don't get a clear bourbon flavor. I don't notice any obvious difference from the regular Temptress here. Perhaps enjoyed side by side I could find the difference, but I did not have that luxury.
Mouthfeel: Thick and full bodied. The beer sticks around quite a while too, like a good stout should.
Overall: Definitely a very solid beer here. But it wasn't obvious to me that this was Bourbon barrel aged.
Serving type: on-tap

A - Pours midnight black with a cocoa colored head. Very nice lacing and strong head retention.
S - Up front there is definitely bourbon, vanilla, milk chocolate, and you can smell some sweet malt and subtle hint of coffee beans
T - The taste is phenomenal! It follows suit of the nose with the bourbon, vanilla, oak, milk chocolate, sweet malt, and there is a very mild coffee presence as well
M - The mouthfeel is just a touch thin if I'm being picky, but on the other hand I think it adds to the drinkability. I drank a couple of these and they went down so smooth. Especially for a 9+ ABV
O - Overall, I believe this one is right up there with the best barrel aged beers Texas has to offer. Lakewood has really made something great here. I highly recommend seeking this one out.
