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.

Another damn perfect beer from placentia. Pours very dark with bourbon and complex malty character. No real head but enough carbonation to satisfy great mouthfeel with its touch richness. Finishes like blended malt scotch with toffee and light espresso.

750 mL bottle poured and shared by Tcon. Huge thanks for sharing this one, with a nice touch of about a year of age on the bottle. I can only imagine it made this incredible beer even more enjoyable. Pours a dark muddy brown color with a thin ring head. What a fun blend this is. Heavy raisin, toffee, oak, and spice aroma. Flavor has some vanilla, wood, toffee, and chocolate. So much going on here. Very complex, which is no surprise, considering it’s a blend of three beers that are plenty complex on there own. Has a bit of a lingering bourbon finish. Slightly cool, and boozy, though not off putting. I can’t say that I absolutely love the flavor entirely, I am easily able to admire it. Overall, this was a fun beer to finally try. Very much a big league beer, and is an ass kicker, but enjoyable to say the least.

Bottle pour split at the condo. Got this for Andrew and I to split for him getting married. Dark deep amber, sweet aroma kindof boozy, rich flavor raise, some coco, really awesome beer to try.
