    12 bottle limit?!? damn thats a lot.


    Mélange #3
    $30/bottle ($25.50 after RS discount) - 12 bottle limit

    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.

    Available in December.

    15.5% ABV, Suitable for aging many years



    Bourbon Barrel Aged 4 Calling Birds
    $25/bottle ($21.25 after RS discount) - 2 bottle limit
    RESERVE SOCIETY EXCLUSIVE

    4 Calling Birds was our 2011 winter ale - a spiced strong dark ale. We took inspiration from the traditional winter warmer for our fourth verse, integrating gingerbread spices into a robust dark ale. Notes of licorice & banana bread mingle with dark fruit, molasses and bitter chocolate for a perfect cold weather sipper!

    This is the Bourbon Barrel Aged version of last years holiday seasonal! Spending a year in rich oak barrels, the beer has picked up incredibly deep and luxurious notes from the oak and bourbon, but has maintained it's original charm.

    Available in December.

    14.8% abv, suitable for aging until 12 Drummers Drumming is released.

    There was so much regular 4 Calling Birds this year, and so much Trois Poules Francais on the shelves last year, I am really surprised that we only get to buy 2 and that its an RS exclusive. Wonder if something went wrong. Also, 11% to 14.8% abv is a pretty huge jump, no?
