A Note on This Beer
Dark beer lovers, I come bearing freakin’ fantastic news!
We scored a stash of this year’s Bourbon Barrel Temptress (2020)!
If you aren’t under the Temptress’s silky spell already, you should know this is the very brew that won Texas Stout of the Year at the New York International Beer Competition.
To craft today's ultra-special variant, Lakewood’s brew crew aged their Milk Stout base in oak bourbon barrels for 5-10 months. And, the result is truly one-of-a-kind.
Each rich sip oozes with freshly brewed coffee, brown sugar, and chocolate-covered caramels. A roasted malt backbone and a hint of oaky bourbon slowly rise to the top. Hints of lactose sugar and vanilla lend an irresistibly soft mouthfeel. It tastes like devouring a caramel-filled chocolate truffle and chasing it with a sip of coffee — spiked with Maker’s Mark!
Sure, you may try to resist the allure of this captivating brew — ‘til you’re caught in the clutches of its beguiling 11.8% ABV.
Fair warning: there’s only one way to taste this treat outside of Texas, and that’s right here. Will you be one of the lucky few to transport your taste buds to an oakey, chocolate-dipped nirvana?
