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

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.

Headbanger (3501) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2012
750 ml bottle 10/2/12 (Binny’s Downers Grove)-42° in English pint-Pours a dark brown with a big tight off white head. Aroma of malt, toffee, cocoa, and brown sugar. Taste of the same with a little malt and hops. This medium to full bodied brew is well balanced and goes down easy.

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 (2441) - 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 (2566) - 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.

arminjewell (8474) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Pour on tap at Royal Hilltop, dark reddish brown pour with white head, aroma brought toffee, caramel, burnt sugars, some slight earth, biscuit, sour fruits, hints of nuts, touch of red ripe fruit as well. Taste is a mix of sweet fruit, caramel, burnt sugars, hints of earth, slight sour notes, some red fruit, finishing sweet, dry. Interesting.

BBB63 (6394) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Corked bottle and served in one of my Duvel snifters: Pours a deep reddish-brown with a fading off-white head and good lace. The aroma has notes of almond joy candy bar (almonds, chocolate, coconut) , oak chips, banana nut bread, slight raisin and plum, and a hint of treacle. The taste is malt forward but not overly sweet has there is a slight tartness and mild acidity for balance. Not much in the way of hops found in this brew, light peppery notes are discovered however. The mouth feel is smooth and dry but a bit on the dull side. Overall, I quite enjoyed this and it did exceed my expections. FAR BETTER than the Samuel Smith version. I would NOT recommend aging this beer however. Buy now, drink now.

Sadads (8) - Alabama, USA - SEP 28, 2012 does not count
Nice use of dark roasts. Similar to many of the smokehouse beers that they are producing. Heavy on the roast at the front. Light berry fruit in the initial taste, hops towards the end more bitter then standard English style ales.
