Lakewood Mole Temptress

Dallas, Texas-based Lakewood Brewing Co.'s Temptress milk stout has become a local favorite for its combination of consistency, great flavor and affordable price. Starting in early 2013, Lakewood decided to release its Seduction Series, which are variations of the Temptress milk stout that use different adjuncts to enhance the flavors of the base beer.
