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.

markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2012 This is one bad mother of a beer. Thanks big time to tpd975 for sharing. Pours dark cola brown with an off-white head. Nose is bourbon, cola, sweet chocolate, spice, booze, dark fruit, molasses, cherries, booze, vanilla, wood, roast, perfection, magic, unicorn’s horn, and other ingredients of mythical proportions. Flavor is cherry, dark fruit, booze, roast mellowed by barrel, bourbon, vanilla, love, and just overall goodness. Incredibly complex; has to be one of my new favorite beers.

Aromat zdominowany przez alkohol. Jest te? wyrazna beczka z wanilia i drewnem. Do tego nuty miodowe, karmel, chleb, zio?a. Barwa gleboko czerwona, lekko zamglona. Goryczka stosowna, przyjemna. W smaku slodycz umiarkowana z karmelem, toffi, nutami beczki wanilia. Tega pelnia, umiarkowane wysycenie i przyjemny alkoholowy finisz w stylu bw bba.

Butelka. Piękna rubinowa barwa. Intensywny aromat beczki, bourbon, vanilii, rodzynki, suszone morele. W smaku wszystko to co w smaku plus toffi. Z delikatnych minusów alkohol średnio ułożony i brakuje trochę ciała. Świetne

Drago7 (428) - Warsaw, POLAND - OCT 16, 2017
Z: kokos, migdał, wanilia, mocna beczka, S: początek czekolada, dalej karmelowo, keksowo z figami, wanilia, dalej już jakby quad w susz owocowe. Alko rozgrzewa w przełyk. Dobre to.

jandorris (787) - Warsaw, POLAND - OCT 16, 2017
W aromacie rodzynki, ciemne suszone owoce, wanilia, migdały,po ogrzaniu alko przeszkadza. W smaku ciemne suszone owoce, rodzynki, śliwki, karmel, skórka chleba i w chuj alko.

Unde (1128) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2017 Mahogany reddish brown colour with beige head going to the sides of the glass. Aroma has dried fruits, figs, plums, toffee fudge, pinch of alcohol, Bourbon, wooden note. Taste has figs, plums, dried fruits, toffee, really sweet and alcohol warms maybe too much. Full body and lowish carbonation. Maybe a bit too boozy for me. Or too simple, if that is possible. Great nevertheless.

Punkero (466) - FINLAND - OCT 3, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2017 Looks ominous. Dark brown. Mahogany. Bread, nutty, ripe fruits. Strong. Port wine like boogie. Caramel. And yes bourbon. Toasted aftertaste.

italianjohn (3223) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2017
This vintage 16.3% ... pours a deep amber color with a thin off white head and light sticky lacing .... aroma of grain and booze, definite attributes of the anno brew barleywine toffee, caramel malts, toasted malts, some chocolate and roasted malts with dark fruity and tart fruits .... taste is much more of a grainy and fruity barleywine, toffee, caramel malts, toasted malts, chocolate malts, roasted malt and dark fruits with tartness to it as well .... dry oak with light bourbon but mostly vanilla .... finishes dry with lots of dark fruit, toffee and vanilla with dry oak and bourbon .... very boozy and very barleywine.... not much Black Tuesday in here .... great beer nonetheless

geolgau (407) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - AUG 31, 2017
Complex, spicy, alcoholic but not too sweet. Coconut,bourbon,oak, vanilla,dark fruit jam, chococake, rich caramel. Has that old, quality and nostalgic feel. One of my personal favorites and one of the best liquids one can drink.

Lore (2863) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 25, 2017
0.75L bottle; 16.3% ABV; brown colour, minimal beige head; aroma of caramel, vanilla, bourbon notes, herbal liqueur, dried fruits like plum, figs and raisins, as well as walnut, slight soy sauce and intensive spicy alcohol; taste is basically the same with syrupy sweetness; excellent ’beer’
