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.

Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Draft at the bruery. Pours a deep nut brown with a thin creamy light tan head. Aroma is a solid cup of coffee, with a touch of molasses, light bourbon and vanilla. Flavor loses a bit of the coffee and turns more into a smooth molasses vanilla boozy goodness. Medium creamy body. Definitely better than the regular in my opinion. But a totally different beer.

Deep Amber-brown with off-white head. Coffe meets syrup sweet aroma. Excellently balanced barley wine meets coffee flavor, sweet but not too much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml. Pleasant coffee aroma. Smooth caramel bourbon notes. Coffee really works well here. Very drinkable for the ABV. Sugary, but still drinks clean. Brown sugar, coffee, bourbon. The bourbon is mild and restrained. Really good.

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is coffee, some hops, malt presence. Appearance it’s brownish red, poured fizzy, very light brown head. Taste is coffee, dark fruit, malt. Mouthfeel is a touch light, but good carbonation and boozy. Overall, it’s pretty tasty.

Slightly cloudy deep toffee brown. Nose is terrific light roast coffee. Taste is green and light roast coffee, brown sugar, some general bourbon moodiness. Perception of sweetness, but nice interplay with cold press like coffee bitterness. Well done. Like Dayman, but it BB barley wine form. Good with both steak and gorgonzola quesadillas and chocolate cake on first snow day of the year.
