COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Collaboration #3 Stingo was brewed using traditional English ingredients. A variety of ale and specialty malts from Yorkshire are at the forefront; their pronounced roasty aroma and flavor contain hints of toffee, cocoa and bread crust. English hop varieties contribute subtle herbal, peppery qualities. The beer was brewed in batches; some was fermented on oak, some was fermented normally, and some was allowed to sour in the mash tun before being transferred to a fermenter. Boulevard’s brewers, along with Dann and Martha Paquette of Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project, then blended the batches until desired levels of wood and tartness were achieved for the final product. Aroma Roasted and caramelized malts, toffee, wood, cocoa, banana, almond, mocha, brown sugar, bread crust Malt Roast, burnt, toasty, bready, rich, toasted sweet caramel Hops Subtle herbal and peppery Balance Malt Body Medium; malty body offset by acidity

On tap at Falling Rock. Almost black appearance with a lacy tan head. Malty and rich aroma with notes of chocolate, cocoa, toffee, light roast, bread and a touch of peppery spice. Similar flavor, adding notes of oak, vanilla, caramel, nuts, light banana, toasted grains, herbs, earthy hops and a touch of tartness. A very complex, full-bodied sipper that blew the roof of my doors.

From notes. Tasted in December 2012 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle. Pours dark cola brown with a thick beige head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is lightly metallic with toasted caramel malt and a touch of banana yeast. The flavor is toasted and bitter cereal, caramel, and banana. The body is medium with a creamy texture, average carbonation, and a long toasted bitter finish.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2014
In short: A fruity and bready-toasted rich burgundy ale where everything works wonderfully well together.
How: Bottle 750ml, consumed when probably one year of age (a forgotten bottle).
The look: Clear burgundy body topped by a medium beige head with medium retention.
In long: Nose has a really nice beady-toasted character, like smelling a fresh crusty brown-bread from very close. Aroma also has dark fruits notes. In mouth the body is full, pillowy, lively carbonation, great mouthfeel. Taste has the various fruits and toasted brown bread reverse the roles compared to the aroma. The fruits (raisins, dates, figs, red berries) and more prominent than the fresh crusty brown bread. A mild brown sugar sweetness and even light notes of chocolate. Earthy tobacco hops seal the deal. Excellent brew that is also easy to drink even if quite corpulent. Not sure if this is due to my involuntary aging of this forgotten bottle but I thought this was an underrated little gem here. A bottle my wife purchased for me while she was on a business trip, she really made my day when she purchased that beer, but not my dinner (because away on a business trip).

Beerathon (1540) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Garnett in color with khaki head that hangs on the side of the glass. Malt forward with palatable sweetness and slightly tart finish. Super smooth with some dark fruit character in the nose.

TXBadger (1889) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Reviewed from notes: pours a dark brown with ivory head. Woody, tartness, roasted malt, and just a hint of pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. This one is very earthy with more roasted character showing up on the finish. Interesting, but not my cup of tea.
