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 (5437) - 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, unicorns 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.

scirtes (599) - POLAND - MAY 24, 2017
Bottle, 2014 edition. Pours dark ruby, with small beige head. Beautiful aromas of dark dried fruits like dates, figs, raisins, lots of toffee and some milk chocolate notes. Taste is mostly sweet, with lots of fruitiness, nice alcohol warming. A masterpiece, especially if you are into barley wine type beers.

On tap at Victoria Gastropub. Translucent medium brown. Aroma is caramel, thick body, low carbonation, and pretty good small-bubble lacing. Taste is caramel and big malt. Hard to drink.

Thisis12ptfont (1167) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAY 14, 2017
Aromas of aged malts, barrel wood, bourbon, leatther, oak, wort malt, molasses, toffee, vanilla, wafers, sugared caramel, port wine, merlot, charred malts, plums, coconut flakes and alcohol sugars. Pours a very dark crimson brown with a quarter white foam and no lacing. Taste brings complex dark malts, toffee, sugared dark fruits, prunes, raisins, molasses, wort malt, oak and brown sugar. Mid palate offers insane barrel qualities like, oak, bourbon, vanilla, barrel wood, leather, cigar smoke, sugared caramel and slight coconut spruce. Finishes boozy with tons of bourbon and aged malts. Some barley wine qualities are noticeable with tons of dark fruits. Overall, an absolute masterpiece production of a blended beer. The best qualities of each individual beer. A+ rating.
