This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

The eighth in our Mélange series of blended beers - this robust ale is a marriage of our bourbon barrel aged anniversary ale along with White Oak Sap (our bourbon barrel aged wheat wine), along with locally roasted Geisha coffee from our friends at Portola Coffee Lab.

The beer generally tastes like sweet caramel and bright coffee grounds. There's a medium plus sweetness with sharp barrel character and alcohol on the back.

A decent brew, but the bright coffee character cuts a bit away from the experience.
