Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: notchucknorris on 07-09-2013

An English Barleywine aged in Bourbon barrels, Mash is an intense yet balanced beer with notes of burnt caramel, toasted bread, ripe pear, dried figs, vanilla, toasted coconut and finishes with oak tannin. This has become an instant favorite around the brewery due to its balance, subtle complexities and overwhelming deliciousness.

I love the Bruery and, in theory, this one is right up my alley but it just didn't do it for me.

nearly 2 years old, this was exceptionally smooth, full of barrel character and gorgeously blended caramel, toffee, brown sugar notes, and not overly sweet. Excellent beer

Hazy light brown pour, with a thin layer of white bubbles on top. In the aroma, wood, toasted cereal grains, caramel, rusty metal. A lot of barrel in the taste, almost too much, very woody, grainy malts, stale bready sugars. Body was light-medium. Just not what I'm interested in for the style.
