COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Melange #3 is a blend of three bourbon barrel aged strong ales. White Oak Sap, a wheat wine, our Anniversary Series old ale and our imperial stout, Black Tuesday, join forces in this luxurious strong ale that links some of the best characteristics of each of the contributing beers. Chocolate, dark fruits, oaky vanilla and rich toffee-like character reach through the bourbon veneer for an intensely satisfying quaff.

jbeatty (1098) - New York, USA - DEC 21, 2011
2010 bottle. Pours black, thin white head, little lacing. Rich nose of caramel vanilla, brandy dark chocolate, coffee grounds, noticeable alcohol. Taste is sweet, bourbon chocolate sauce, syrupy caramel, alcohol and vanilla toffee in the finish. Palate is thick and chewy. Overall rich and decadent, but more like a liqueur to me, definitely something to take your time with, or it quickly becomes overpowering with sweetness and booze. This was the third bottle Iíve had since the first release, doesnít seem to be improving much with age at this point.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 20, 2011
Bottle shared by Bankhead. Thanks! Pours a clear red color with a thin creamy head that quickly fades. Aroma of booze, caramel, toffee, whisky, chocolate, baking spices, vanilla, maple and stone fruits. The taste is sweet malts, whisky, maple, vanilla, booze, plum, candied citrus and dates. Full bodied. Nice sipping beer.

Dogbrick (8664) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Sample at Bruery Provisions. Pours a cloudy dark brown color with a thin tan head that dissipates steadily. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla and malt. Rich and chewy body with a dark malty aroma and touches of chocolate and oak. The finish is smooth and malty with a lingering bourbon aftertaste. Good concoction overall.

dark brown color with fleeting foam. Big bourbon, vanilla, pit fruit, chocolate aromas. heavy syrupy mouthfeel. Very sweet, boozy flavors of bourbon vanilla, wood, chocolate, pit fruits--nice cough syrup

beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - DEC 10, 2011
This is a big boozer. Way too sweet for me. Followed by a big ABV taste that I donít cotton too. Pours a dusky brown with a big barrel aroma to it.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 3, 2011
(750ml bottle from Provisions store). Pours a dark brown-almost like root beer-with a tan head that dissipates into a small ring. Aroma is bourbon, vanilla, coconut, wood, caramel, and some figs. Taste is quite sweet, but after only a couple sips I still want more. Its almost like drinking a rich soda with the carbonation. Full bodied with an oily texture. Smooth finish with some fizziness from the carbonation. Very, very enjoyable.

THE BEST beer I have had in a while. Dark nutmeg pour. Mose is sweet bourbon vanilla. Taste is similar. Sweet,quaffable, amf luxurious. Delicious blend of malt, bourbon soaked oak, and hop balance to hold it all together. Full bodied and great. I think Bruery beers are overrated but thisnone is for real.
