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. Boulevardís 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 - this one poured a dark brown color, some ruby notes - with a small thin, tan head. Aroma was some light sweet malts, some toasted notes, caramel characters. Flavor was nice and malty sweetness, not too heavy thankfully, sweet brown sugar, light toffee character. Very enjoyable.

Shared at November tasting. Poured clear brown with a gold hue and a minimal light tan head. Nose was on the sweet side, the taste seemed more balanced between the bitter and sweet. Overall interesting, what I expected from a collaboration like this.

Pours an opaque brown with two finger tan head. Caramel, roasted, wood malt flavors that are fantastic. I can detect hints of cocoa and pepperiness. Herbal hoppy background. Mildly sweet initally then overtaken. Fully body with soft carbonation. Long mildy smokey finish. This is a well crafted beer that is insidiously well balanced given the ABV.

On tap and snifter served at Lunar Brewing Co., displaying a darkest brown, with some ruby highlighting, a modest layer of off white head foam that quickly broke down to a thin ring and film, and a few light spots & strands of lacing. The aroma started with a low and slightly burnt, dry roastiness, coffee, caramel, dried fruit and malty sweetness, some vinous hints, and light tartness. The flavor advanced the tartness, and offered some dark cherry, moderate and somewhat lingering hop bitterness, light syrupy aspects to the texture, a medium body, soft carbonation, fairly hidden alcohol presence, and a dry finish that retained some of the hop. Kind of a blend of a few Stout characteristics with a mild but dry Old Ale. Would have liked to sense more oak effect, but was quite tasty nonetheless.

November 5, 2012 on tap at the bridge. Brown pour with nice head and lacing. Roasted malt, spice, caramel and toffee in aroma and taste. Thin to medium bodied, light carbonation and slight bitter finish.

dresden (1464) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - NOV 4, 2012
Pours a kind of ugly brown with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet of dark fruits, and a crazy amount of pear. Tastes like pear too, but also a woody taste. Little tartness and some caramel. A guy outside is yelling about a raccoon and its really weird. This is a pretty good and unique beer.

Bottle. Nice dark brown pour with white head. Aroma is quite potent, lots of english malt, toffee, toast, grain, but also some slightly "sour" aromas, cherries, oak, raisins, plums. Taste is a hybrid of roasty ESB like flavors, with toffee and toasted bread and a sightly vinegary flavor. If they didnít mention they did this on purpose, I might have suggested this beer was infected. The acidity was good for the palate however which was rather light even though the taste was very strong. Strange, Strange beer.

On tap. Pours a clear light brown with a tan head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has notes of chocolate and light sweet grains with just a bit of underlying spice. Flavor is a bit thin with light sweet chocolate backed by a hint of roast and dark grains.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2012 750 ml corked and caged bottle. Pours dark brown-amber with a large long-sustaining beige head that leaves decorative lacework. Aroma is roasty and consists of dark fruits, SweeTarts, toffee or caramel, booze. Taste is sweet and sour with a dry finish. Itís a little acidic with umami. I also taste spices (cinnamon?). This is a well-made and creative brew, so I give it props for that, but at the moment itís not doing much for me. Itís easier to admire than it is to drink. Addendum: any type of admiration I had for this beer in my initial review started to wane the more I sat with it. Banana and solvent notes started appearing, giving me a headache. What was initially a chore to drink became damn near impossible. Every category from Aroma on down to Overall was brought down. What was an admirable yet hard to drink 3.9 beer became a less desirable 3.3. Even with its many faults, though, there are still things to admire about it, so itís not a total loss.

Copper colored pour with an off-white head. A sweet caramel and toasted malt aroma up front. Some subtle floral and spicy hops, a light yeast note, and some mild fruit esters. Not bad, but not terribly good. The flavor is a bit bland. Some bread, toast, and a hint of toffee. Light hop flavor and minimal bitterness. A bit of water, maybe a touch of metal, and light fruit esters on the finish.
