Boulevard / Pretty Things Collaboration No. 3 Stingo

RATINGS: 227   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.55/5   SEASONAL: Special   IBU: 35   EST. CALORIES: 255   ABV: 8.5%
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. Boulevards 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 sugar, toasted malt, punchy carbonation, tart finish. Pretty lacing with a rich, dark, auburn body. Sticky on the tongue in the aftermath. Perfect for a chilly fall night.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2012 Pours a chestnut brown. Sampled at atomic coffee in Moorhead. Nice dark fruiti aromas and flavours. Nice. Re-rate: upped the rating. This is actually quite good. Lots going on...bubble gum, dark fruit, red wine, sour cherries, coffe, dark malts and fudge all making their presence known throughout the evening. Everything is balanced and its an easy drinking, smooth ale. Very good.

750 ml. bottle- Pours hazy dark ruby red with a dense creamy tan head. The aroma is tart and acidic, dark fruits, brown sugar and spicy. The taste is malty, brown sugar, tart and tangy, caramel. Body is full, carbonation is medium high, finish lingers long after the swallow. Overall this is good, massively complex, I liked it.

Bottle shared by cptnspeed1...thanks Brad! - Pours ruby brown with a thin tan head. Lightly sour caramel on the nose, a sharp booziness, light bread, and butterscotch. Taste is the same, with some nutty caramel and light yeasty bread. Smooth and slick, with nice carbonation.

Very nice dark brownish red appearance. Looks like very dark wine. Smells of plum and alcohol. Tastes of raisin, burned bread. Slightly watery but a full, complex character.
