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.

Un grand merci Yan pour le partage! Je suis assum: jaime Bruery et ses grosses bires cochonnes et dcadentes. Bruery cest Bruery: idoltre par les buveurs de craft beer dbutants, souvent mprise par les connaisseurs qui ny voient que du tappe loeil sucr et grossier. Moi jaime Bruery. loccasion me prend une rage dune de leurs normes monstres barriqus et lorsque. Jai alors besoin de mon fix. Teinte de Cognac g, texture huileuse, collante au verre, sans mousse. Le liquide est ambr et ressemble un alcool que le temps a fortifi. Un nez sur la vanille caramlise, le bourbon, le bois, le caramel. Cest cochon! Jaime a! Des notes de toasts de pain de grains germs. Peut-tre un sirop de mas galement. tonnamment beaucoup de sucre en bouche (?), ml une bonne dose dpices, de caramel et dalcool. Bire aux allures robuste mais au coeur dor et fragile. La lumber-sexual de la bire!

From notes. Enjoyed this baby at a line share at Witchs Hat on St. Pattys Day. 750 mL bottle poured by an increasingly drunken Uncle Rudi. Man this guy is annoying. This was a 2012 vintage. The beer is great, his company, not so much. The pour is a dark brown with some ruby or dark red hues shining through. There is a small tan head roiling down with a little lace. The aroma is pretty fantastic. There is a ton of sweetness right up front, big sugar, molasses, caramel, and a surprising note of vanilla. There is a good chocolate malt and a nice dark fruit in there as well. There is a touch of heat, which is to be expected, but it balances very well. The flavor is much of the same. There is a little bit of sweet candy in here behind the sugar and molasses. The chocolate, vanilla, and caramel really play well together in a makeshift sundae in my mouth. The mouth feel is thick and creamy with a soft carbonation and a lingeringly sweet sugary finish. This one is excellent. The guy pouring might suck, but his beer is pretty okay.

On tap at the Bruery tasting room. It pours a dark amber brown color with a light tan head. The aroma is very nutty and woody with lots of chocolate, raisin, almonds, fig and alcohol. The flavor is strong and alcoholic with sweet notes of fig, raisin, cocoa and caramel. Lots of wood and vanilla as well. Alcohol is pretty noticeable. Has an aged quality about it. A really nice fireside sipper.

A 750 ml-es vegek kirlya, a The Bruery főzde palackjainak mindegyike magn hordoz egyfajta elit-jelleget, az embernek ugyanis rendre olyan rzse tmad az elegns kllemű darabok lttn, hogy a bennk rejlő ital igazi klnlegessg hordozja, olyan, melyre rdemes odafigyelni. Nem mondhatnm, hogy a mrka főzeteinek legnagyobb ismerője vagyok, az eddigi tapasztalatok azonban megerősteni ltszanak az exkluzv jelleget a Bruery-srk tekintetben, klnsen ha egy djnyertes elegy hordozja a főszereplő, mely nem akrmilyen komponensekből llt elő, s amely alkoholfok tekintetben sem utols. Ez az american strong ale nem viccel, amikor intenzv jellegről, kiemelkedő tartalomrl, makultlan szerkezetről esik sz, egyszerűen lenyűgző karakter trul elnk a felnyitst kvetően. Illata marcipnos, karamelles s vanlis, soksznűsge magval ragad. A műfaj valamennyi sajtossgt megcsillantja, magn visel minden jegyet, amely egy hasonl kaliberű főzettől elvrhat. Az american strong ale affle iskolapldja, amely anlkl vonultatja fel gigantikus arzenljt, hogy azok slya alatt előbb-utbb repedezni kezdennek az alapok, s fogyasztja szmra megterhelőv vlna a karakter. Itt ugyanis br semmi esetre sem htkznapi italrl van sz, nem vlik nyomasztv a klnleges jelleg, a sokadik korty utn sem llt kihvs el a tartalom befogadsa. A mondanival ugyanis tkletesen lekerektett s fogyasztbart, az ignyessgre trekvs menthetetlenl kitkzik a szerkezeten. Br a vanlia, a fahords-tlgyes jelleg, a karamella, a marcipnos s likőrs jegyek, a fekete gymlcsk hangulata nem a visszafogottsg megtestestői egy sr esetben, s ezen intenzv komponensek jelenlte a kezdeti lehengerlő hatst kvetően hamar tcsaphat csmrbe, a kiegyenslyozottsg foka, a tkletesen altmasztott test ez esetben gondoskodik a minősg folyamatos biztostsrl, az rdeklőds lankadatlansgrl, az izgalmak szntelensgről. S ahogyan az intenzv jelleg a kortyolsa sorn mindvgig megmarad, olyannyira lapul meg a httrben az alkoholfok cseppet sem elhanyagolhat, mgis szrevtlenl munklkod mrtke.

On tap at The Bruery. Hazy brown appearance. Aroma of oak, vanilla, chocolate, caramel, toffee and hints of dark fruits and bourbon spice. Full body. The alcohol is hidden fairly well considering the ABV. Nicely done overall.
