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.

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.

This beer has quite a bit of raison, deep aromas. Mahogany appearance, no head, no lacing. Some heat.

This beer is a wonderful blend of bourbon and oak barrels. It has a sweet with an almost sour flavor. Amazing!

750 ml bottle shared by Scotty at the STLHops Pinball Party- thanks again, Scotty! Pours a cloudy chocolate-amber color with a small tan ring for a head. Big bourbon aroma, with vanilla, earth, dates, figs, caramel malts, toasted brown sugar, and oak throughout. Surprise- big bourbon flavor, too, with chocolate, caramel, vanilla, oak, dates, figs, plums, graham crackers, and more warming bourbon. Big boozy finish. Medium-full bodied, with a warming bourbon mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This one is a monster. Probably could stand another few years in the cellar to mellow out, and I’d like to try it again then. Still, this was right up my alley, a big bourbon beast.

draft at ebf. aroma has nice bourbon, vanilla, oak, and a light sour twang. mouth feel has a heft and is quite thick. flavor has old bourbon barrels, vanilla, some custard, and is very smooth for such a big beast.

This poured a dark brown color with a very small beige head. Aroma was light maple, lots of brown sugar, and loads of caramel. Taste was way way too sweet, light molasses and caramel. This thing is just a mess, litterally tastes like caramel covered cardboard.

Bottle shared by Tony, thanks my friend. Been meaning to try this for some time now. Super dark pour, thick and oily. Aroma was sweet with hints of bourbon, vanilla and slight fruit tartness. Flavor was a mix between chocolate and a tart fruit, somewhat confused me a little. A great beer but couldn’t drink more then one glass, a little too boozy.

25.4 oz bottle. A blend of my three top-rated Bruery offerings, how can i not like this. Deep brown with lacy tan froth after a stiff pour. Nose is chocolate pudding, whiskey, vanilla and raisin deepening to include dark and dried fruits. Medium body with a buzz; not as heavy as expected but packing some serious heat. Taste is caramel, dark chocolate, prunes, dates, wood, molasses and ... damn, running out of descriptors. A hot, messy treat. What can i say, i’m a malt whore.
