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

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 (1517) - 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.

trevor211 (1440) - 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 (4692) - 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!

adnielsen (10138) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Bottle @ home picked up at Argonaut Denver. Pours a deep brown appearance with a big, brown head. Quite herbal, grassy hoppy, somewhat earthy, cola, caramel aroma. Somewhat boozy, chewy caramel, chocolate, cola, plum, dark fruity, cracker, grassy flavor with a tangy, boozy, a bit syrupy finish. One of my least favorite beers from Boulevard.

rougeau13 (2215) - Richmond, Texas, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Clear dark brown with a resilient light brown head. Aroma of caramel, cocoa, toast, nuts, and wood. The taste is sweet and slightly sour, roasty and woody with a nice bitterness and a slight alcohol bite with a bit of metal. Medium-full bodied, a tad syrupy, lightly carbonated, and a little sharp. Mostly pretty good, though the metallic flavor is a little off-putting.
