Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

A: Pours a near opaque dark brown color. A two finger beige head forms with good retention and lace.
S: A big malty aroma up front and center. Baked bread, light chocolate, toasted malts. The barrel aroma is there, but subtle. A nice oak aroma that intermingles with the great malty character.
T: Again, a big malty aroma with a subtle barrel character. The barrel is in the background all the way, but still apparent. Baked bread, chocolate, vanilla, toasted malts that are really warm and welcoming.
M/D: A full body with light to moderate carbonation. Not under carbonated at all, and so smooth and velvety. There is plenty of warming alcohol, but really enjoyable and a great sipper.

A spot on English Barleywine with a subtle barrel character. Really warm and comforting. Well done and highly recommended.
