He ventures to the Naughty Temple, weaving through its intricate web of slithering sensations, while bitter lovers dance playfully upon his tongue.

Batch 1- naughty 90 in templeton rye barrels

Golden caramel brown. Head fades fast.

Whiskey and oak. Vanilla. Earthy, but malty. Very malty and barleywine like. Slight bitterness. A very interesting beer.

Batch 2: 2014 This one shows a ton of whiskey and malts. Caramel, oak, vanilla, and bourbon. Awesome flavor profile if you like bourbon. A very fine beer and an upgrade from b1.

Batch 3: 2017 strong ale aged in pappy barrels and HH barrels

Khaki head. Caramel bark brown color.

Lots of wood, oak, bourbon, and vanilla. Caramel and toffee. This is the definition of a wood aged beer imo. So much Barrel flavor.

I really enjoyed this batch. I think they really dialed it in.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear deep orange. Small white head that doesn't last.

Smell - Nice whiskey. Oak. Some hops.

Taste - Great whiskey. Rye is very prominent. Pale malt. Some hops still, but muted. Boozy finish.

Mouthfeel - Boozy. Sharp finish. Medium body.

Overall - Good barrel and it's a very light beer. I'm impressed it comes out.

Short lived head, recedes to cap and collar. Bright orange body. Looks TEMPting.

Vanilla, rye whiskey notes.

Tropical fruits in the forefront, pineapples and mangoes. Contributing boozy barrel notes to finish. Hides the abv very well.

Very full mouthfeel for the style. Low carbonation, works.

BA notes reminiscent of Rye Wyne which I enjoyed a lot. Thanks 4DAloveofSTOUT!

2014 version, served in a snifter glass. Pours a medium-darker brown body, one finger offwhite head, good carbonation, short retention and no lacing. Smell is clean whiskey, aroma, toffee and oak. Caramel sweetness lingers in the back. Flavour follows; caramel, toffee and a fair amount of whiskey flavours; light smoke, heavy wood presence, lots of bourbon. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation, whiskey on the finish. A beer that is heavy on the whiskey, good mouthfeel, a bit one-dimensional.

first batch of Naughty Temple. Thanks Clark!

poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: orangish yellow bodied beer with a thick cap of white head that drops down to thin ring around the glass.

Smell: vanilla, whiskey, pineapple, and oak.

Taste: Vanilla, butterscotch, whiskey, rye barrel notes. Very barrel forward. Mild hops of pineapple and tropical fruit hop notes on the back end. Unique flavor profile!

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with low end of moderate carbonation levels. Slightly boozey kick thats not too over board.

Overall: This is the best barrel aged IPA that I have ever drank! i know that this style of beer is not very common. The Templeton Rye notes are really prevolent. If you love Templeton Rye Whiskey...this is a beer you gotta try! Toppling Goliath yet again shows us that they are a kick ass brewery with a serious passion for craft beer! This beer really pushes the envelope for this specific beers style... in a good way!
