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.

Bottle shared by Ben C, thanks Ben. The nose has everything a fat kid should like, booze, sugar chocolate and toffee. Taste is the same with some hints of vanilla. There is a touch of heat from the ABV, but no where as high as whats actually in there. Good brew!

madvike (3205) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 6, 2012
Bottle shared by BenC...thanks Ben! - Pours mahogany with a thin white head. Nose is sweet bourbon and brown sugar. Smells good, but a little too sweet. I get the diabeetus just by smelling this sucker. Taste is a little sharp, with lots of caramel, molasses, and brown sugar. Sweet and diabeetus-inducing. It’s pleasant for a bit, but then sugary and over the top after awhile. Decent.

Bottle to oversized snifter (thanks Bob). Looks good; deep and complex. Smells tasty too; bourbony and heavy. Tastes great; this beer is probably better than its average review suggests. Mouthfeel is good too. Overall, a damn good beer!

I brought this one to Imminent Liquidation II, not my first time having it, bottle is from 2011. A - Pours deep brown bordering on black with a nice one and a half finger tall tan head leaving small strings of lace down the glass. S - Smells of dark roasted malts and bourbon, that would be the black tuesday, oaky syrup, white oak, and lots of dark fruits, the papier. They really do smell amazing together. T - Starts off with a mix of sugary sweetness and dark roasted malt quickly giving way to hints of dark fruits, warm bourbon and plenty of dry oak tannins. The finish has plenty of sweet heat to it, lingering on the pallet long after consumption. M - Big and boozy through and through with moderate carbonation. Plenty of sweet booze holding strong long after the finish. O - I have always enjoyed this one. It has all the flavors I enjoy and the blend works very well. This one is still a little too boozy, can’t wait to drink the others in the future.

Ungstrup (34708) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2012
Bottled. A murky brown beer with a lazing brown head. The aroma has notes of chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with alcohol, roasted malt, vanilla, chocolate, and a bit of soy, leading to a dry roasted finish.
