I never did a side by side, however I have recieved good reviews from a friend who loves temptress. This isn't a clone recipe, but more a similar ingredients beer.

I don't have great mash control yet, and I think I may have mashed a bit low, also I used S-04. I'm planning my next batch to mash higher (around 69), less choc malt and more dark crystal keeping the colour (could go lighter as this is quite dark) and using a good quality english yeast to give it a fuller, slightly sweeter mouth feel and taste.

I reached FG on the 4/8/11 I'm drinking some as I type. Since first kegging its really developed as alot of darker beers do. Chocolate has always been present but over time the flavours have smoothed out vanilla came though really nicely. I would also recommend an extra vanilla bean or two depending on how much you like the vanilla taste or you can use vanilla extract (not essence)
