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

Bottle, 2012 vintage. Light roasty aroma, some subtle fruits. Fruity, lightly tart flavour. Not bad.

In short: A fruity and bready-toasted rich burgundy ale where everything works wonderfully well together.
How: Bottle 750ml, consumed when probably one year of age (a forgotten bottle).
The look: Clear burgundy body topped by a medium beige head with medium retention.
In long: Nose has a really nice beady-toasted character, like smelling a fresh crusty brown-bread from very close. Aroma also has dark fruits notes. In mouth the body is full, pillowy, lively carbonation, great mouthfeel. Taste has the various fruits and toasted brown bread reverse the roles compared to the aroma. The fruits (raisins, dates, figs, red berries) and more prominent than the fresh crusty brown bread. A mild brown sugar sweetness and even light notes of chocolate. Earthy tobacco hops seal the deal. Excellent brew that is also easy to drink even if quite corpulent. Not sure if this is due to my involuntary aging of this forgotten bottle but I thought this was an underrated little gem here. A bottle my wife purchased for me while she was on a business trip, she really made my day when she purchased that beer, but not my dinner (because away on a business trip).

(750ml bottle) Pours an amber body with a medium cream head. Aroma of caramel, toasted grain, and toffee. Flavor of caramel, grain, raisins, chocolate, toffee, bread, and brown sugar.

Beerathon (1139) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Garnett in color with khaki head that hangs on the side of the glass. Malt forward with palatable sweetness and slightly tart finish. Super smooth with some dark fruit character in the nose.

Reviewed from notes: pours a dark brown with ivory head. Woody, tartness, roasted malt, and just a hint of pine on the nose; follows onto the palate. This one is very earthy with more roasted character showing up on the finish. Interesting, but not my cup of tea.

This is a solid oaky beer with a delicious rough finish. It is best drank celebrating the amazing life of your grandmother. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This one’s really nice. Sweet with some mild bitterness. Dark brown body with initial high foamy head, that settles into nice creamy, tight beige head. Aroma of roast grains, molasses, brown sugar wood. Taste is initially sweet, hint of dry burnt toast bitterness, finish is dry, mildly sweet (raisins?)

Wine and bourbon aroma. Taste has notes of red wine, yeast, plum. Very rich and juicy. Finish is wet and sweet.

Bottle: Deep, amber-copper with a tall, tan head. Toffee malt aroma. Flavour is sweet, prune, toffee.... Very English. Pretty good stuff.

Marheb (2013) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 27, 2013
Poires, pommes, biscuit graham avec une portion surie comme une old stock. Le corps est bien charpenté, l’amertume docile, buvabilité honnête. J’aime bien ce genre ale anglaise/old stock.
