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

Tap at Smoke & Barrel. Pours clear golden. Small white ring of foam. No head. Nose is toffee and sugar. Orange candies and some cotton candy. Taste is oily, spicy, some warming alcohol. Quite rich- more sweet Abbey Tripel like. Mild spicy Belgian yeast. Weak lace. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml. corked and caged bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, light beige head, with some lacing, over a slightly hazy dark amber (SRM 18) body......nose is redolent of cereals, dried fruits including raisin, plum, lighter cherry, wood, banana, with hints of cocoa, hints of hazelnut.....taste is heavy cereal, cocoa, raisin, plum, coffee, finishing with light pepper, hints of bitterness.........mouth feel thick, alcohol warmth present, carbonation adds a spritz. This is a nicely complex well balanced beer. The malts dominate, but with some restraint, along with lovely contribution from the hops. This falls well within the description of an "English Barley Wine" under the BJCP style guidelines. It is a delicious beer. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

Bottle shared by my good friend Blake. No proper notes taken about this one but I do recall it being somewhat peppery and malty. Interesting brew.

12 oz. pour at the Anchor. Rich aromas of coffee and chocolate. Satifying finish. Needed to be served warmer than it was.

Nickls (2499) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Tap. Creamy light tan head, dark brown copper thats quite dense looking. Slightly sour dough, toffee, slight roast and some sweet maltiness in he aroma. Quite roasty upfront, sourish fruit and toffee, and a dark plum flavor on the backend. Medium to heavier dense body with good carbonation. Nice sipping brew, but too much roast for whats going on here for me.

Tap at Three Fires. Roasty malt, brown sugar, toast, and dark fruit aroma. Deep chestnut with a moderate off-white head, thick creamy lacing. Bready toast malt, vinous fruit, peppery spicy hops, and burnt sugar flavor. Medium body, low carbonation. Very nice.

Delicious and perfectly balanced beer with aromas of toffee, bread and sweet malts. Hints of oak. Moderate carbonation, a bit reminiscent of a good root beer. Just the right body and very pleasant aftertaste.
