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.

Shared generously by Zack S. at Swamp Head. An interesting beer, much more heavily leaning towards the Oude Tart part of the blend than the BT part. Sour cherry notes with hints of chocolate stoutiness. Doesn’t pick up the sweetness from BT which is awesome. A really good beer.

phredrik (1023) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - JUL 24, 2015
Bottle @ ØlKonsortiet summer shananigans. 11% abv. Lovely brown/reddish color, minimal head. Aroma has notes of balsamic vinegar, chocolate, cherries, rather acetic, tannins, musty oak, black currants - WOW, such a beautiful aroma! The taste is along the lines of the aroma, just amazingly complex all over. Bretty notes, cherries, chocolate. Soft carbonation and smooth mouthfeel. One of the best beers of the evening!

750 bottle. Deep dark red. I know this is a blend of oude tart and BT. Id say this is 85% oude. Lots of cherry, slightly darker than the regular.
