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

Pours dark brown with a khaki head. Aroma is sweet malt, chocolate and caramel. Flavor is rich and malty, brown sugar and bread, earthy notes, and a little tickle on the tongue for the finish.

Bottle from Julioís. A deep reddish-brown ale with a creamy tan head. Sweet and tart aromas. Flavor is a complex sweet blend of wood, sugar and malts. Mild tartness. Smooth drinking. Reminds me of Uerige Doppel Sticke, but not as earthy. Perhaps a bit sweet for me to be stellar though. Perhaps too young. Iíd like to try this aged for a while. Maybe Iíll pick up another bottle for the cellar.

Draft at Flying Saucer-Kansas City, served in a footed glass. Pours a very deep amber that appears opaque initially but can be seen through when held up to light. Finger of beige head. The aroma has notes of rich English malts that provide toast, tobacco, and chocolate, with dark fruits, earth, wood, nuts, very mild spice, and boozy bread. The nose really signals heaviness, and the flavor continues with a lot of richness: dark, caramel, toasted, and chocolate malts, dark fruits, tannins, nuts, earth, tobacco, and boozy fruitcake. Medium-full bodied, with moderate carbonation and a rich, smooth, boozy mouthfeel. When these bottles hit, Iíd recommend splitting it with at least a couple people. I liked this but had a hard time finishing the whole glass. Itís intense. Also, I didnít get the light sourness that was suggested; there is some dark fruitiness from the sour mash, but the malts win out in this one.

Pours deep mahogany into an English pint. Off-white head with excellent retention recedes leaving spot lacing to coat surface. Sweet roasted nut, chocolate and earthy fruit aromas. Sweet toffee front to back with a lasting peppery dried prune finish.

Indra (2569) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Draft. Darkly malty, bready aroma, tart and fruity with woody, earthy tones and hints of bubblegum, faint roast, toffee, cocoa and cherry. Clear, dark brownish-red in color, with a fine, slight, light tan head. Flavor is full of sweet, dark malts, with a plentiful fruity tartness as well, lending a sharp, almost refreshing edge to what is otherwise a very malty brew, finishing with dark breadiness and a very light amount of bitterness late. Some gentle acidity and dryness on the light and effervescent palate, with a nearly tannic feel, body is medium. Alcohol presence seems to be nearly undetectable. Highly complex and tasty creation here.

SoberCajun (111) - Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Pours brown/amber with a generous tan head. Great roasty/sweet aroma. A pretty balanced malty flavor with a nice hint of sourness. Mouthfeel is slightly thin, but satisfying.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2013 Tap pours dark amber brown, golden on the edges, with beige head. Big malty roasted grain aroma with a smacking of chocolate. The taste is smooth and rich, very British, bunch of grainy chocolate followed by a light zing, kind of a dark tart cherry raspberry lemon shortbread ish / tart raisin zing, that changes the beer considerably until the fairly dry herbal hops kick in and bring it full circle back to the roasted malty body. Easy going carbonation brightens the tartness then quickly fades to develop a nice complex beer with the oak grounding out the hops and lactic acid. Out it settles into a funky lightly herbal dry nut brown, unique and simple seeming but plenty enjoyable, complex, and interesting. Once again Boulevard is expanding my knowledge, thank you. -- aged bottle came across more simplistic with a lightly wood aged English brown summing it up while still carrying some intricacies --

Ataraxia (302) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Pours a dark brown with a thin off white head. Strong smokey aroma and burnt taste. Peppery, bitter, and a sour aftertaste. Notes of oak, toffee, and brown sugar. Alcohol isnít too noticeable.
