Really interesting and hopefully delicious beer thanks to furealz, 2013 vintage.

Pours a nice creamy semi thick 1/2 finger off white head that fades pretty slowly, nice lacing too and good legs coming down the sides, dark mahogany reddish brown beer with faint hints of ruby light sneaking through the edges.

Nose is very nice, great bourbon right out front, sweet candy bourbon and vanilla barrel, into big sweet malts, barleywine like big sweet malts, candy malts, toffee, caramel, molasses candy, and a nice big spicy rye with that as well, and a little rye syrup like aroma, as well as mild dark raisiny fruits, vanilla creams, and lots of great aromas.

Taste is delicious as well, sweet candy out front but not too sweet, little syrupy as well, with nice caramel, molasses candy, lots of toffee and a little candy caramel creams, mild nuttiness as well, and not too syrupy either. Some spicy fruity rye flavors as well, nice rye component overall and pretty strong without being over bearing. Mild bourbon, the bourbon came through more on the aroma than flavor but still there, little sweet candy bourbon and mild barrel notes. The booze starts to come through noticeably, with some warmth and mild tingle, and but balanced nicely with the fair sweetness, and a nice big fluffy nougat center. Hint of raisin like dark fruit flavor. Finish is a little sweet still but not sticky or syrupy surprisingly, bit more booze warmth, some spicy rye flavor lingering as well as more dark fig like fruit and more toffee and caramel candy.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, mild syrupy, fair booze warmth and little tingle, decent to lighter carb.

Overall pretty good, nice barrel notes and bourbon but wish the bourbon came through more on the flavor, nice sweet flavors with the toffee, caramel, molasses candy, etc, and the rye came through quite nice without being overbearing. Pretty tasty.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

P: Hard poured created a slow building head that fizzed toward the end of the pour. A deep amber body with ruby highlights and a khaki head that fades quick.

S: Rich syrupy sweetness, spicy rye, black berries, caramel, bourbon, coconut, and cardboard.

T/M: Malt forward with sweet candy, lots of sweet bourbon, burnt toffee, raisins, coconut, floral notes, dark cherries. Mouthfeel is the best part of this brew. Full and creamy.

O: I'm not loving this. I typically like the territorial series because of the adventurous nature but this one misses the mark. I'm missing the big rye presence that I anticipated but its much better once warmed. I think the bourbon really masks this beer and is maybe a tad too heavy. Definitely let this warm up because its a waste when cold.

750 split with Hopswagger. Served in a Prairie teku glass

A - Pours a dark garnet color with a milky off-white cap. No lacing and light retention.

S - Spicy rye malts, tangy yeast, sugary prunes, raisins, multi-grain cracker, sweet molasses, caramel, caraway seeds.

T - Bourbon barrel hits strong with underlying rye bread. Sorghum molasses, sticky green piney hops add some bitterness. Burnt raisin bread, brown sugar, slightly toasted. Very sweet malt base. Finishes semi sweet with spicy rye bread and and a little alcohol punch.

M - Heavy side of medium body, silky and viscous, spicy finish.

Sweet and savory with lots of rye flavor. There's a sweet heaviness and it has a nice sharpness from the alcohol but becomes a tad astringent, almost artificial. Nice barrel flavor and it comes together pretty well but for the price, it doesn't wow me.
