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

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.

vyvvy (3876) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Pours very dark with a deep red hue and large tan head. The aroma is quite malty with caramel, toffee, doughiness, berries, hints of sourness and an overall richness. Medium / thick body that’s very smooth and has a low amount of flowing semi-soft gentle carbonation. The flavor starts with a more pronounced berry-esque sourness, but it is still malt forward with dark doughiness, dates, figs and a sourness than works for it. The finish is spicy, fruity, sour and malty - very well done unique beer.

crossovert (6934) - Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Really isn’t reminiscent of a traditional British ale. The carbonation is too lively and the favor is a bit sweeter than I would expect. It isn’t a bad beer though. It does have a bit of banana bread flavor along with some tartness and fruitiness.

kidmartinek (3508) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Reddish amber color. 4 inch head. Initially it smells like strong alcohol. It needs to breath a bit. Resting gives way to a damp dirt, musty aroma. The flavor is dark fruit, alcohol and brown sugar. The finish spikes with some alcohol and tapers into a balance between the carmel malt and the bittering hops. All those foods they talked about in the description... well, no. You can let your imagination run wild. As the beer wears on, it the malt does taste more burnt and some toffee notes develop. This is a jeckel and hyde beer, drink it cold or warm. Your better off letting this get to at least 55 degrees if you are to appreciate it in any sense.
