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

Bottle shared by cptnspeed1...thanks Brad! - Pours ruby brown with a thin tan head. Lightly sour caramel on the nose, a sharp booziness, light bread, and butterscotch. Taste is the same, with some nutty caramel and light yeasty bread. Smooth and slick, with nice carbonation.

Very nice dark brownish red appearance. Looks like very dark wine. Smells of plum and alcohol. Tastes of raisin, burned bread. Slightly watery but a full, complex character.

timc100 (314) - Park Ridge, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Very interesting, highly complex brew. There are a lot of different layers going on: sour apple cider, alcohol, toasted caramel malts, toffee sweetness. It is an onslaught of flavors but they are difficult to perceive.

Gription79 (2228) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. The aroma is banana, stone fruits, raisin, hot alcohol notes. The flavor is chocolate, toffee, fruity, tart, wine notes, very rich. This may have some brettanomyces. Very interesting, I enjoyed the rustic character of this.

Lukaduke (2004) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Pours a deep mahogany color with a nice two finger eggshell color foam. Aromas are complex with earthy woody dark fruit, malty and rustic with a touch of herbal sweetness. On the palate there is a lot of that complexity coming through with a nice malt backbone to reign in the flavors of chocolate, crusty bread, sweet toffee, pepper and a nice little underlying sour tartness that is subtle but really livens up the back end of this brew and cuts through the dark caramel sweetness.
