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

750mL pours a rusty brown with a big bubbly off-white head. Aroma is an inviting mixture of toast and toffee, with just a bit of charred oak. Unfortunately, as with several recent highly-anticipated beers from our great hometown brewer, there’s something a bit off in the flavor. The English malt and hop components are here as expected, and the "sting" still shows up, but the slight metallic tinge that others have noted is fairly obvious and off-putting. I’m hoping this isn’t a widespread problem because I think this is actually a pretty good brew except the one manufacturing flaw.

badgerben (4479) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Dark brown color with a large head. Light aroma, mainly yeast and malt. Oddly strong metallic taste up front, with a vinous woodiness rounding it off. As it sat and warmed, the metal seemed to fade out and some full malt, toffee, caramel and oak came out. Generally sweet.

legion242 (2224) - Richardson, Texas, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Poured a deep brown with a whispy head. Aroma of softly roasted malt. First sip or two were very tart and metallic, but this seemed to soften a bit through the bottle.

DiarmaidBHK (3466) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Draft at Fire works. Pours dark brown with a thin brown head. Big molasses and brown sugar on the nose. Sweet with being cloying on the tongue with a little toffee thrown in for good measure. Little note of bitternss on the finish. Very nice!

Strykzone (5004) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2012
On draft at Bigelos. This was quite dark brown. There was so much going on in this beer. It was full of various malts and they added lots of complexity. It was fruity throughout and sometimes I tasted chocolate, sometimes coffee. Add biscuits and toffee to that. It was a bit boozy and the ABV seemed higher than 8.5%. This was tasty stuff.

wxman (1449) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Pours an opaque dark brown with a thin but resiliant tan head. Aroma is coffee and cocoa. Taste is also coffee, chocolate and maybe even some sweet chewing tobacco all wrapped up in a mild tartness. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Good stuff!

MadRobin (1994) - Silver Spring, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Three ounce taste poured from bottle at Boulevard Tasting class at Total Wine and Beer in Chantilly, VA. Clear , dark red-brown with off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, butterscotch and fruit. Taste of sweet caramel, dark fruit and oak followed by a spooky smokey sweet roast malt flavor that made me think of the flavor you might get by squeezing the last from drops if coffee from over-roasted grounds into brown sugar. Slightly tart and bitter flavors add a little bite at the finish. Medium/full body and medium/light carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pours slightly cloudy cola color with thin beige head. Malty, nutty aroma. taste again malts and nuts, dough, a little sweetness, marshmallow and toffee. Finish mild hop dullness. Medium palate. Alcohol disguised.
