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

This is the second beer that I’ve 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. There’s 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 didn’t, I would have really liked to compare the two. This is an interesting beer, it’s 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 didn’t 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 (280) - 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.

ElGaucho (2222) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Draft at butcher and the boar. Malty doppelbock aroma. Murky dark, reddish brown. Dry flavor. Not very carbonated. A hint of sourness. Lingering tartness. Good beer.

wchesser (1197) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Very sweet caramel nose. Cloudy thick murky caramel brown color. Biscuity with a sweet toffee mid and back palate finishing with some peppery spice. Good, but a bit disjointed. Feel like some time in the bottle would do this one good. Bit too sweet for my taste, and alcohol is hot.

Draft. Hazy brown color, medium tan head. Aroma of burnt toast, caramel. Taste is dark fruit with a burnt edge. Nice.

trevor211 (1305) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Cola brown, med head. Dry, roasty, just a bit of fruit for sweetness. Maybe some burnt toffee. A mild flavor, though - delicate, but maybe a bit too much so.

AirForceHops (3298) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Draft @ The Ale House. Served in a Boulevard tulip, deep brown with red highlights, thin yet dense head( tan in color) good retention. Nose has tons of malt, chocolate and caramel dominate. English malts come through. Hops are  not noticeable through all the malt. Lots of dark fruits and slightly tart berries. Weak notes of oak. With chocolate malt and minor hints of coffee. Does show some complexity. Taste does show the 8.5% ABV however, only after I Started eating my dinner and the glass was half emptied. The body is medium leaning on the full side. Overall is is a real finely made brew, well worth a try!
