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.

Pours a cloudy dark reddish brown color. Bourbon, sweet, malty, chocolatey, boozy aroma. Malty, bourbon, nutty/peanut butter, sweet, lots of alcohol. Not a bad bw but not the best, lacking some complexity.

Bottle share T. Hanks to DexterFace. Cold. Sweet honey nose. Super malty taste. Slight alcohol warming. Pretty sweet but not much malt character. Not complexity and no esters. Boost juice.

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle at the Night of Garbage, big thanks to Kenny my go to Bruery pimp, 20/12/13 up a shit load of stairs ! Hazed amber with a moderate light beige covering. Nose is toffee fudge, nutty, coconut shavings, ring of booze, caramelised sugars. Taste comprises toffee fudge, almonds, muscavado sugars, light booze streak, caramel nougat, nutty tones. Full bodied, fine carbonation, drying closure with a sweet ring to it with lightly warming booze. Decent barley wine, the ABV is well integrated, pretty well balanced.

Scopey (5506) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle at the Night of Garbage, thanks to Kenny. It pours cloudy deep brown with a small yellow-white head. The nose is wood, toasted coconut, vanilla, juicy, toffee, bourbon and fudge. The taste is wood, earth, warming alcohol, toffee, honeycomb, vanilla, spice, bourbon and honey with a bitter-sweet finish. Full body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Actually hides the abv well. Smooth, pretty balanced (for the Bruery) and rather drinkable. Nice.

The (not so) shit beer tasting at Leightons stratospheric flat. Hazy deep amber beer with a good pale cream coloured head. Palate is airy and light and slightly dry. Fine cadbonation. Smooth malt, little malt cream, semi dry. Sweetish bourbon, a little fruity. Bourbon spice but no heat. Smooth coconut and light generic fruits. Spicy finish. Good stuff. Pretty easy drinking considering the abv.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle shared at the Night of Garbage - many thanks to Kenny. Pours clear, ruby-brown with a foamy khaki head. The nose has lots of ripe fruits, berries, some toffee, nips of toasted wood. Medium to big sweet flavor with rich bread, plums, figs, berries, toffee. Full bodied with fine carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Warming finish with lots of ripe fruits, figs, brown sugar, bread, fruitcake, mellow vanilla. Pretty damn solid. Ballsy of course but has balance and plenty of depth.

48FanInCali (663) - California, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Solid. Very similar to White Oak Sap. Lots of vanilla, toffee, dark fruit, and barrel. Some coconut. Well balanced. Light to medium body which is a little light for the style but is actually pulled off quite nicely.

ICEatALAMO (867) - Troy, Michigan, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle. The pour is a nice dark amber with thin head. The aroma has a hint of bourbon with nice malty tones. The taste is an absolute perfect blend, very smooth and the bourbon is not overpowering. Smooth all the way around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2013-11-15. Dark brown body with a modest beige head. 3++ Aroma is sweet and bourbony, moderate malt, vanilla, and mild oak notes. 7+ Flavour is similar, big sweet bourbon, light oak, sweet lightly caramel malt, Smooth medium bodied palate, soft carbonation. 4+ Rich, relatively well balanced considering, just a big boy. Tasty but a bit difficult to drink in quantity. Bottle shared by Ferris
