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. Boulevardís 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

Tap - big thick head, very dark brown color, sweet and roasty malt aroma and flavor, charred oak and toffee notes - very good beer

Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber/brown. Aroma is a moderately malty (caramel, roasted grain, toasted nuts, scorched honey), moderately hoppy (apricot), with notes of toffee, alcohol, grape juice. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Well, itís not without some interesting character in the nose, but all in all itís pretty underwhelming. More roasty than expected, with some oh-so-British notes (toffee, sour/stale fruit, apricot-ish hops). In the mouth itís kinda clunky and sour...but mostly just a big, sugary, boozy, syrupy thing that kinda goes down like a lead weight. Not exactly out of character for the style, but not a whole lot of fun to drink. Not too bad but nothing special.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Little Rock, AR. Pours a deep amber-brown colored body with a slight mahogany hue to it. Finger-width, dense and creamy, light brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is very toasty with a nice bready toffee, a light chocolate, roasted nuts, and grains as well as a nice dark fruit sweetness. Slight plum tartness, a good amount of earth, and a light yeast spiciness. Flavor is nice. Toasted bread, some toffee, and grains up front before a light plum tartness and dark fruit sweetness come in. Nice chocolate notes towards the end as well as a light roast and banana. Finishes earthy, lightly tart, toasty, and somewhat sweet before drying with a light yeasty pepper and bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a really tasty and well made English Strong. Lots going on with the toast, malts, lightly roasted nuts, earth, and slightly tart plums and dark fruits. Another solid collaboration from these guys.

Opaque black, dark brown head. Lots of malt here, caramel and coffee flavors. Good flavors. The finish is a little metallic, sodaish to me, but generally a fine beer.

Poured into the trusty Jester King snifter from a 750 ml bottle. Dark, opaque brown with a hint of red. Foamy eggshell head leaves bountiful lacing as it drops away. Aroma consists of cocoa, graham cracker, roasted malt, cinnamon. Taste is sweet from a nice malty backbone. Orange meets dark chocolate, anise, vanilla, general warm spiciness. At 8.5% the alcohol is present and contributes to the sweetness. This might taste better in a year, but I wonít be buying another bottle to test my theory.

GODiSSOUTHERN (356) - Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Pours a pretty dark brown with red highlights at the edge. Not much in the way of aroma. Tastes equally of toffee and coffee grounds. Wished maybe for a bit more tartness but can taste a bit in there. Also a bit of an unpleasant metallic note. Sem-deese.

sm5561 (118) - Kansas City, Alabama, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Pours almost opaque black with reddish hue when held up to the light. Medium off white head dissipates fairly quickly but leaves solid lines of lacing. Aroma is sweet and malty with molasses, oak and maybe some dried fruit. Taste has notes of tootsie rolls, toffee and raisins. Taste starts out a little sweet and finishes slightly sour. Lively carbonation gives it a bit of a creamy feel.

Very nice brown color to this very aromatic and complex ale. The first scents that grab you are oak, toffee, a slight sweetness, caramel, and to, bourbon. All is good with this offering. Light on the head and lacing, goes down smooth and creamy--finishes with a burst of bourbon notes although the alcohol in this English-style ale is somewhat cloaked. I would say overall worth the price of admission. Excellent brew from a local favorite.

mbsmith (72) - Missouri, USA - AUG 10, 2012
brown with small light brown head, super tiny bubbles gives the appearance of creaminess. aroma of oak and sweet bread. flavor is nutty, roasted, oak, lightly tart banana, light clove and cinnamon. just a bit of a bite in the finish. palate is well-carbonated and the tiny bubbles are lively, not creamy as expected. could almost be a porter. nice beer, just doesnít really grab me. not a big fan of English styles (aside from English barleywines) but i can appreciate this. iíd like to see another Boulevard/Pretty Things collaboration in the future.
