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.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 A: Deep brown body that has a slightly reddish hue when held towards the light. Two finger medium khaki head. Quickly receded but left a nice collar but not much skim. Pretty decent lacing all things considered. S: Bourbon, vanilla, oak, chocolate, caramel, dark fruits and molasses. Bourbon starts to fade as the beer warms. Very rich, well layered and inviting. T: Complex. It combined wonderful sweet notes of chocolate, vanilla, caramel and molasses with the earthy nature of oak, bourbon, and leathery malts. Nice dark fruit component of figs and raisins. Maybe a little roasted coffee towards the finish. M: Thick, but sufficiently carbonated to keep the beer fairly smooth on the palate. Nice warming heat from the booze, but its mostly on the tongue as opposed to burning in the back of the throat. Nice lingering sweet malty finish. O: I thoroughly enjoyed this. So much so that I easily put two glasses back in about an hour and a half. I was a big fan of both white oak and black tuesday so I am definitely not surprised to love this offering from Patrick and the gang.

My bottle shared with Andrew and Nick. Rich and complex. Dark bottled with bubbly head. Above average mouthfeel. The imperial stout, the Black Tuesday is the centerpiece, some chocolate, A sour finish. Somewhat like a good red wine (though with tannins).A sipper and one I would have again.

Butters (3990) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Sampled at Neil’s Rare Beer Stash tasting. Chestnut brown pour with small brown head. Super sweet molasses and sugar, cherry flavors. Very Syrupy. Good deal of alcohol heat, but the abv it did mask the 15% fairly well. Too sweet to be able to drink more than a small glass.
