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.

This is a big boozer. Way too sweet for me. Followed by a big ABV taste that I don’t 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.

HighWine (955) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2011
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.

Many thanks to daknole for sharing this one! Pours coffee black in color with a tan head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Smells incredible. Loaded with notes of vanilla, cocoa, port, and whiskey -- almost like a BA AleSmith beer. Tastes of further notes of dark fruits, sweet malts, and molasses. A bit on the sweet side with an odd tartness on the mid-palate, but an excellent beer. Happy to have gotten a chance to drink this one.

Beautiful dark brown pour. The aroma has a sweep smell. The taste is very sweet and a bit tart. I like it. I could drink a lot of this.
