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

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 won’t be buying another bottle to test my theory.

GODiSSOUTHERN (390) - 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.

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 doesn’t really grab me. not a big fan of English styles (aside from English barleywines) but i can appreciate this. i’d like to see another Boulevard/Pretty Things collaboration in the future.

A reddish brown beer with a small tan head. The aroma is roasted malt, toffee, almost meaty nuttiness. The flavor is sweet dried fruit and a slight tartness and roasted malt.

750ml bottle. Brownish amber pour with a bit of off-white head. Nose and taste are both complex - toffee, dark fruit, cherries, roasted and bready malts - slightly tart finish.

Pours brown aroma has a malty toffee nose with some dark fruit aromas flavor is roasty and mild spicy chocolate with some tart acidy notes where raisin or some sort of dark fruity flavor somes through..... thin palate ...very unique beer and cant say i have had anything like it i guess the best way to describe this is a tart brown ale....
