Bruery Description:
Mélange #1 was the first in our line of barrel aged beer blends and continues to be one of our favorites. A curious blend of our bourbon barrel aged stout, Black Tuesday, along with our Flemish-style sour red ale, Oude Tart, this beer is unique and delightful. Forging flavors of toasty oak, vanilla and toffee along with notes of leather and dark fruit, both the full bodied essence of the bourbon barrel aged ale and the sour quality of our wild ale are present in this well rounded beer.

Draft at Ginger Man with Streets and Chris. Pours a deep, murky brown body with thin lacing. Aroma is rich molasses, brown sugar, oak, bourbon and sweet sugary booze. Mouthfeel is thick and rich with notes of rich maple and molasses, sweet syrup, bourbon, oak and rich vanilla. Some sour fruit on the palate as well. Really nice blend considering how aggressive the original base beers are, and especially in polar opposite directions.

i would almost class this as a wild ale, as the oude tart is surprisingly the dominant of the two beers, despite the abv of black tuesday. A cool blend, hints of chocolate vanilla and alcohol amidst a good dose of tart cherry. Brought a bottle home."

Forgetfu Tasting at ChrisOs. Very hazy deep amber beer, good fluffy pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and crispy. Fine carbonation. Pleasant cherry and light wood. Good tangy dried fruits. Light airy cream. Tangy cherry turning to bitterish cherry skin. All the while there is the mellow dark malt background. The Oude Tart seems to have really dominated the Black Tuesday, wasn’t expecting that! Light dry finish with a bitterish cherry linger. Nicely joined up.

Bottle shared by Kenny at the Pancake Parlour, 10/07/14. Opaque dark amber with a big old beige covering that dissipates then retains. Nose is bitter dark fruit rinds, dates, woody must, soured red berries, spice. Taste comprises tangy dark fruits, tarte red berrues, toffee, light acidic qualities, caramelised sugars, light booze. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a subtle acidic wash. Decent enough stuff if perhaps a little sweet in places.
