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

750ml Bottle. Very nice well balanced strong ale. Poured with nice creamy head and aroma full of malt character. Full bodied and flavorfull with just enough bitterness to balance. Drinks very easily and definitately worthy of a repeat visit. Boulevard continues to impress and I look forward to further offerings.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a hazy, ruddy, dark brown with a thick, light tan head. The nose is slightly spicy with bread and yeast notes. The flavor is a little sweet with nice caramel malt, toffee, and fruitcake notes. Surprisingly dry finish. Medium to full bodied. Nice brew.

EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Tap at JL Beers in Fargo. I see that this is pretty well like, but I just can’t get buy the initial over-roasted to an icky bitter grain. Actually stopped and handed to someone else.

tennessejed420 (927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2012
pours a deep reddish brown with lasting finger of tan froth, good lacing, looks like a stingo to me. Aroma of hazelnut, roast, banana, cocoa powder, caramel, flavor of lightly toasted nuts, with a lingering roasty finish, notes of banana and subtly bitter chocolate. Medium bodied. Not as good as sam smith stingo but a fine brew nonetheless.

On tap - this one poured a dark brown color, some ruby notes - with a small thin, tan head. Aroma was some light sweet malts, some toasted notes, caramel characters. Flavor was nice and malty sweetness, not too heavy thankfully, sweet brown sugar, light toffee character. Very enjoyable.

larryLSB (439) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Shared at November tasting. Poured clear brown with a gold hue and a minimal light tan head. Nose was on the sweet side, the taste seemed more balanced between the bitter and sweet. Overall interesting, what I expected from a collaboration like this.

Pours an opaque brown with two finger tan head. Caramel, roasted, wood malt flavors that are fantastic. I can detect hints of cocoa and pepperiness. Herbal hoppy background. Mildly sweet initally then overtaken. Fully body with soft carbonation. Long mildy smokey finish. This is a well crafted beer that is insidiously well balanced given the ABV.
