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.

Bottle shared with koleminer20, 2013 vintage. Aroma is fruity, dark fruits, malt, booze. Appearance is garnett red, light beige head. Taste is very fruity, sugar candy, with a hint of dark cherries. Mouthfeel is surprisingly light, good carbonation. Overall, I expected better but it’s not horrible.

Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a cloudy brown with medium beige head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is strong vanilla, coconut, spice, dark fruit. Medium mouth, sweet roast, brown sugar malt, coconut, hides alcohol well, really enjoyed this.

I had this on tab from the bruery but that day it left less of impression compared to the Bruery’s top tier offings I sampled that day. Fast forward to last night after drinking FW 805 during the fight I opened a bottle of mash chilled to perfection and it was excellent look, smell, body , and taste all rate a low to mid A IMHO. If you can find it try it you’ll not be disappointed if you like Barley Wine beers.

Mash ’14. Draft at the Bruery. Pours clear copper with a fizzy beige head. Tastes like sweet dark fruits, raisins, roasted malt, booze, chocolate. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like raisins, dark fruits, booze, and a hint of ashy wood.

My favorite barrel-aged barleywine. Alcohol is well-hidden, all things considered. Nice sweet toffee and bread notes with vanilla and stewed fruit. Light up the fire and chill out for a long winter’s nap.
