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.

oberschlesier (172) - Kattowitz, UPPER SILESIA, - DEC 1, 2017
Aroma: mostly vanilla aroma, coconut as well, generally bourbon notes, fine alcohol is clearly recognized too. Taste: at first rather sweet, the same as in the aroma, then some mix of alcohol and - I think - hops. Head is average, carbonation is medium to high for this style (especially for BBA version).
Generally: IMO there is to high alc., but everything else is rather OK (BBA dominates this beer).

dorain (691) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2017
Aus der Flasche (2017 - 16,3%) im 2017-11 getrunken. Dieser Blend aus einem Barley Wine Olde Ale und ein IStout, die alle Bourbon BA gelagert wurden, kombiniert nun alle Stärken der 3 Biere. Hier treffen fette Aromen in ein wahren Feuerwerk aufeinander. Wow was für ein Spektakel. Diese Erfahrung muß man erlebt haben. Der hohe Alkoholgehalt ist in dieser noch frischen Version noch nicht 100%ig harmonisch und braucht noch paar Monate Flaschenlagerung. Klar wiedermal ein HighEnd-Bier von The Bruery.
