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

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.

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.
