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.

alteregoo (1605) - Kalisz, POLAND - SEP 16, 2017
Piana kremowa, średnio trwała, barwa miedziana, opalizująca. Aromat to czysta poezja, zwłaszcza dla miłośników wanilii, do których się zaliczam. Jest to po prostu wanilinowa bomba, do tego rodzynki, syrop klonowy, figi i karmel, w tle delikatne taniny, kokos i bourbon. Cudo! W smaku lekkie rozczarowanie - piwo nie jest słodkie, owszem, sporo tu słodowości i tego co w zapachu, ale jest też winna kwaskowatość, pestkowa cierpkość, migdałowa goryczka i spora alkoholowość na finiszu, co łącznie powoduje spory dysonans. Niskie, drobne wysycenie, oleista konsystencja, długie posmaki i morze wanilii...
To chyba najpiękniej pachnące piwo, jakie do tej pory dane mi było zdegustować. Zarazem jedno z niewielu, gdzie rozdźwięk między słodkim, wanilinowym aromatem i taniczno alkoholowym smakiem jest tak wyraźny... Trochę szkoda.

Smells of wet dog, and taste is semi-sweet/sour. The abv is a plus and a warning reason to drink the brew. Palate is tart cherry, strawberryish and the malty finish saves this concoction. Not my fav but it is a decent mid-week pour.

bulldogops (2726) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 2, 2017
Rating #2548 - 2016.05.05 - Draught at Bruery event at Bainbridge during CBC in Philly Hazy orange-brown pour, bubbly head, not much lacing. Aroma is hot, alcohol, pastry dough, burnt sugar, orange rind. Taste is a bit boozy, tempered with burnt sugar sweetness, and some earthy, molasses, and chalky bitter notes.

Un délicieux produit partagé lors du [email protected] pré-souper-du-personnel. Belle robe foncée, satinée, tête correcte. Le liquide valse voluptueusement dans mon verre sans sembler trop riche ni lourd. Arômes d’orge très céréalier qui me plaisent moins que les saveurs. Ces dernière présentent un profil beaucoup plus complexes où le bourbon est magnifiquement balancé, le grain plaisant et le caramel en feu. Effervescence plus que correcte, sucre résiduel modéré mais présent. Je ne ressens aucunement les 12,5% d’alcool. Mon palais s’alourdit alors que je termine mon premier verre mai qu’à cela ne tienne, je m’en offre un deuxième!

Unique flavor but not sure that I like this style overall. Not worth $20/bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Samuel214 (1318) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2017
Flaska från Beergium, vintage 2015. Mörkbrun, halvmurken med litet beige/brun/vitt skum. Stor, söt doft av torkad frukt, bourbon, kandisocker, lönnsirap, banankola, banana skids, bränt socker, nötiga toner, kolaremmar och en lätt laktostouch. Stor, maffig kropp. Även i smaken stor sötma med bourbon, malt, massor av torkad frukt, lönnsirap, övermoget äpple, ek och fatkaraktär, värmande alkohol, vanilj, plommon och kolaremmar. Smaskigt och sött efter förväntningarna.

acread (23) - St. Albans, Vermont, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Definitely some caramel and fruit notes complemented by a slight bourbon undertone and some woody nuances. However, the beer was so tangy and acidic as to be off-putting. Honestly, my first thought was that it must have been infected, though both bottles our group opened were identical. Others have commented on the tang without believing it to be a problem. However, no appropriate English-style barleywine should have that character. Although I generally love The Bruery’s products, due to its acidity this beer was hugely disappointing.
