COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Best enjoyed fresh
RESERVE SOCIETY EXCLUSIVE

We take Mash, and then add Portola Coffee Lab’s Lucio Delgado (Columbia) at a rate of 1 lbs. per 10 gallons. This has contributed an intense coffee aroma and some additional body, with flavors of raspberry jam, tart pineapple and maple brown sugar. Why did we release two versions of this beer, one with coffee, one without? Mash & Grind is certainly delicious on its own, but we deliberately sought a strong coffee aroma and flavor so you could try your own blending, if you like. Try adding "Mash & Grind" to "Mash" (or the other way around) until you find your ideal blend. Of course opening two bottles of high ABV beer is recommended when among friends.

Bomber shared with friends. Pours brown with a beige head. Very coffee forward, with some caramel and vanilla. Flavor is all coffee, which is too bad because regular Mash was quite good. Some faint vanilla and caramel in there. Not great.

Brown pour with a small khaki head. Rich coffee, caramel, and vanilla. Spice, some bourbon, and more coffee. Coffee dominates the flavor. Caramel sweetness, a but of chocolate, spice, bourbon, and nice vanilla. Hints of dark fruit as it warms.
