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 with the Kernel crew. Dark brown beer, bubbly pale tan head. Smooth palate, a little dry. Surprisingly light. Vanilla, coconut oak, a little coca cola. Some alcohol dryness in the mid but nothing much. Mild chocolate powder and dark fruits. Interesting beer that drinks much lighter than it’s hefty abv.
