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

Tap at Three Fires. Roasty malt, brown sugar, toast, and dark fruit aroma. Deep chestnut with a moderate off-white head, thick creamy lacing. Bready toast malt, vinous fruit, peppery spicy hops, and burnt sugar flavor. Medium body, low carbonation. Very nice.

Delicious and perfectly balanced beer with aromas of toffee, bread and sweet malts. Hints of oak. Moderate carbonation, a bit reminiscent of a good root beer. Just the right body and very pleasant aftertaste.

Deep brown with red tinge and medium tan head. Aroma roasted malt, apple/pear, dark sugar. Medium body with some carbonation and not much alcohol but a little. Sour up front, then bread and wood flavors, hint of brown sugar but not really very sweet. Then some green apple. Interesting.

Pour is a dark brown with a small white head. Aroma is dark tea, dark fruit, molasses and dark sugar. Flavor is tart to start, then comes some caramel and toffee. Finish is again sour with some bitter fruit. Itís something different. Sour with a brown sugar backbone. Iíve only had the Sam Smith stingo to compare this to, itís not as good but it still is a decent beer.

On tap at The Hay Merchant. Pours a clear ruby with medium beige head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is roasted malt and pepper. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet malt and light spice finish. A good English strong ale from Boulevard.

This is the second beer that Iíve had that claims to be in the stingo style, ironically the other one made by Samuel Smith is rumored to be a recipe designed by Dann Paquette. Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights and a huge beige head that sticks around forever as it laces the sides of the glass. I got lots of chocolate and a bit of banana right after popping the cork on this brew, but those seem to have subsided. Lots of caramel and dark sugars with some dark and tart fruits along with a hint of spice. this reminds me a lot of a Belgian Strong Dark. The flavor is really complex and varied. I get a rush of caramel, chocolate, and dark dried fruit maltiness right up front. Tart fruit and a hint of ethanol break through that and never really let go of you. Thereís and earthy almost salty flavor that cuts in somewhere towards the end. Medium to thick body with a moderate to ample level of carbonation and a sweet salty tart mouthfeel going on. I thought I had reviewed the Yorkshire one, I guess I didnít, I would have really liked to compare the two. This is an interesting beer, itís wildly complex and varied, but maybe to its detriment, as the flavors seem a bit less than harmonious. If I come across another bottle I may pick it up just to see what a little age does to this.

Bottle. Poured a darker amber almost brown color with a smaller head that didnít retain very long. Aroma was syrup, molasses, some caramel and lots of malts. Flavor was sweeter. English malts, that turned in syrup and brown sugar. Medium body. Some mild hops can be felt in the finish. Longer oily finish. Another winner here.

falco242 (320) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Nice pour with an inch of head, unique, malty and pretty dark but pretty well balanced too. Cocao and woody but nice wheatiness too. I want this on a snowy winter night.
