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.

joeneugs (6347) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 2, 2016
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.

June 13, 2015. Bottle, received in a trade with atlcarl, thanks!
Murky reddish brown with a very small frothy off-white head. Aroma is sweet malty and light boozy with caramel, dried fruits, dark bread, orange notes, wood and warming bourbon alcohol. Taste is quite sweet, malty and boozy with caramel, figs, raisins, some roasted malt and wood notes, prunes, vanilla and a warming finish. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation.

popery (2154) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 5, 2016
The beer is dark brown with a promise of deep amber richness. Small beige head, which dies away to nothing quickly and leaves no lacing behind. The aroma is all big, rich toasted and roasted malt sugars under the influence of seductively sweet spirit barrels. Its all rich caramel, treacle, toffee and juicy juicy vanilla. Theres also some deep malt fruitiness to it. Overripe apricots, musty grapes, raisins, figs, dates - sweet, sugary stuff. Big on the figs and dates, particularly. The taste is uncompromisingly sweet and rich. Lush, toasty sugars. Wonderfully full caramel malt flavors. Big, round mouthfeel. Enjoyable. Its sweet without being overbearing. Very easy to like.

Very cloudy, light mahogany, light white head. Deep fig, chocolates, toffee. Some spice. Pleasantly bitter, very intensely sweet. Very long oily finish, but not nearly as alcoholic as would be expected at 17%. Excellent.

Hoprider (611) - DENMARK - DEC 23, 2015
Pours dark reddish brown with a thin film of foam and some bubbles at the edges of the glass. Huge nose with notes of caramel, boozy dark fruits, milk chocolate and bourbon. The taste christmas fruits, big malty backbone, vinous fruit, boozy and spicy chokolate cake - typical Brewery big! All kinds of spice and fruitcake in the aftertaste with a slight boozy burn. Obnoxious beer.
