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.

cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 15, 2012
25oz bottle. Ive had this on multiple occassions, but decided to review it for the 11 vintage. Pours a super dark hue, no color transparency, decent carbonation white head. Aromas are potent cherry, raspberry, chocolate, roasted malty deliciousness. Palate is balanced malty fruit up front with the cocoa and a nice tart chocolate through the mid to the finish. Crazy offering that actually works, I feel like it shouldnt but I keep coming back for more. Excellent.

Thanks Mr Miller for sharing the bottle! Poured into a taster showing moderately filtered porter brown with no head. The nose shows light caramel. The palate is light bodied and highly carbonated. Moderately sweet with light flavors of vanilla and caramel with a light smoky finish.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Perfekcyjny Barleywine z czekoladowym finiszem. Doskonale ukryty alkohol, kapitalnie rozgrzewa w żołądku. Przepiękne piwo.

750ml bottle. Dark brown with an off-white head. Aroma of toffee, butterscotch and oak. Sweet taste with tonnes of dark fruits, vanilla, cola and molasses. Lovely complexity to it. Great stuff.
