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.

Vaiz (3796) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2012
Bottle at monthly tasting @ De Molen, kindly shared by dreadnord, thanks! Almost clear brown pour, no head. Aroma is full of bourbon, alcohol, fruits, roasted and somewhat spicy. Flavor is quite sharp, boozy, and still amazingly complex, full of bourbon and roasted malts. Amazing flavor and very drinkable. Great blend.

jbeatty (1197) - 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.

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 (9350) - 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.
