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

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 (1575) - 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 (2392) - 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

Boulevard Collaboration No. 3 Stingo - Good head and lacing. Brown with reddish tint. Inviting, complex aroma that is roasty, woody, caramel, brown sugary, bready, cocoa, and maybe somewhat floral and dark purple fruity. Taste is less complex, but nice - very roasty, bready, and somewhat stout-like, but not heavy-bodied. ABV very well-hidden. I read that this is more sour and tart when drunk at room temp - I let mine cool in the fridge for a couple of hours before drinking.
