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 by "hannont". Colour...golden hued with a thin ecru head. Nose...eminently boozy and loaded with dried dates and golden figs. Palate...like so many Bruery beers, this is a diabetic coma in a glass! That said, this barleywine brims with dark, dried fruits, singed coconut, toasted oak, vanilla and Christmas cake. The finish is very long, boozy and filled with caramel and horehound drops.
