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.

Tap at haymarket for jay goodwin event. P is black w a brown head that lasted on the edge. Smell is hot bourbon w slight backing nutty malts. Taste is smoooooooth rich nutty chocolate behind a strong bourbon front. not super complex but pulls of the dual notes very well.

dmac (6341) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 8, 2017
Bottle shared by Jimmy. Poured an ugly, muddy brown, smaller foamy beige head. Aroma is BOOZE, bourbon, butter scotch, melted light old sweet chocolates, grains. Body is big, strong fizzy carbonation, lots of heat. Flavor is raisin skins, bourbon, wood, wet toast, hint of chocolate. This beer is just obscenely huge.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2017 Dark pour on draught at What’s On Tap in Highland Village, TX. Smooth bourbon aroma and finish. At 16.3% it’s a sipper!

Gerbeer (3796) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 16, 2017
750 ml bottle. 16.3%. Pours a deep brown with light head. Aromas of candi sugar, toffee, dark fruit led by raisins, green oak, and sweet malts. Rich flavors of same with additional woody chocolate and coconut Hot. Beer liqueur. Expensive but worth it.

Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 12, 2017
On tap @ Ginger Man. A deep deep dark ruby brown one with a small sidesticking little film of a head. Smells amazing. Loaded with dates, dark fruity sweetness, caramel, vanilla, wood, Spices, a little bit of Kahlua coffee and some alcohol. Sweet nectar in my mouth. Loaded with sweetness, dark woody slightly mouthdrying flavors. So concentrated and flavorful! It has a good thick oily mouthfeel and a average carbonation level. Some alcohol here bur surprisingly well masked for the ABV, slightly stingy and prickling on the tongue. Nutty, more Kahlua traces (more mellow than the aroma). Wonderful flavors here. Want to drink much more if this, but I probably shouldn’t. 19.06.2013

ciocanelu (2605) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUL 1, 2017
Hazy dark amber color with beige head. Aroma has really nice bourbon, toffee, butterscotch, raisins, burnt sugar and some booze. Taste follows with the bourbon and toffee with a slight tart, dark fruit note like dried raspberries. Not too sweet, really well balanced. Medium body and carbonation, slightly sticky. A really nice strong ale with lots of bourbon but also quite boozy.

DiarmaidBHK (5113) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2017
Draft at Fire works Leesburg. Pours Coca Cola brown with a half inch of khaki foam. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Huge wood and bourbon on the nose. Huge alcohol burn on the tongue. Big, boozy, and not particularly.

katrinaez (2107) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2017
A little harsh with booze in taste, but not bad. Oak, moss, and tobacco in taste. Booze hits a little too much as stated previously. Ruins the finish a bit. Cloudy reddish deep brown. Tap.
