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. 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

Decent, but Iím not a huge fan of the style. Flat and sort of sweet, with an oakiness and palate that didnít really work for me. Itís big and sweet, which is definitely the idea but the palate just didnít balance out to something I liked.

Was one of the guest brews at the tasting at Learyís. Pours a dark orange, smells and tastes of wheat bread, yeast, citrus, booze and some spice. Maybe a little hop bitterness by swallow. I was expecting so much more.

750 ml corked and caged bottle poured a clear dark brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of toffee, toasted malt, carmel, oak and light coffee. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry lightly tart finish. Flavors of toffee, oak, cocoa, toasted malt and earthiness with a crisp dry lightly tart lingering toffee finish.

During GABF weekend. Pours a really murky brown. Kind of sugary and plenty malty but it works. A weird mťlange of tastes that opens up as it warms. I enjoyed it more with each sip.

It poured a dark brown color with a small off-white head. The aroma was semi sweet, some chocolate, a little sour, wood, caramel and coffee. The taste was moderately sweet, with chocolate, caramel, light sour, cherry and coffee. Quite nice.

Bomber. Poured dark amber with a medium-sized light tan head. Aroma and flavor of slightly herby hops, deep, dark fruits, cherry, some raisin, toffee, caramel, toasted malt. Slightly tart. Slightly thick mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Delicious beer.

Brown sugar, toasted malt, punchy carbonation, tart finish. Pretty lacing with a rich, dark, auburn body. Sticky on the tongue in the aftermath. Perfect for a chilly fall night.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2012 Pours a chestnut brown. Sampled at atomic coffee in Moorhead. Nice dark fruiti aromas and flavours. Nice. Re-rate: upped the rating. This is actually quite good. Lots going on...bubble gum, dark fruit, red wine, sour cherries, coffe, dark malts and fudge all making their presence known throughout the evening. Everything is balanced and itís an easy drinking, smooth ale. Very good.
