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.

Moderate lacing. Lots of dense, yet fast moving, straw foamy head. Brew is VERY dark for a BWine.

Super sugary aroma, Toasty caramel. Kinda bland and generic.

Ho-hum. Flavors are kinda weird and forced. Vanilla is strange. Nothing really stands above the vanilla... Caramel, leathery, rustic, (ever-so-slightly) metallic, white grape-y... Nice strong carbonation, funky forced sweetness with mild rubbery after taste.

Eh. there's just something not hitting me right. It's a good beer, just not a memorable one. I won't seek again @ $20. Aroma is just flat-out too much and unmelded. Too English of an English.
