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

On tap at Red Monk. Hazelnuts. Kinda muddled this one is. Slight apple-y tartness. Over carbed. Astringent.

mansquito (6067) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Total Wine, Fairfax 750ml: Pours a brown with a beige head. Aroma is wood, caramel malt, fruit, chocolate, and pretzels. Taste is a bit of pretzel,. A healthy dosage of hops. A subtle undertone of chocolate. Loads of malts. Minor bitterness. Minor sweetness. I didnt get too much sourness out of this. Pleasant body. Not too much carbonation.

Bottle: pours clear dark amber, dense milky head that persists. Nose is brandy, nuts, sherry and prunes. Much of the same on the palate. Rather boozy with some oak. some raisin and dark fruits. Not enough nutty malt notes for my liking though I appreciate what the brewers were going for. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 c&c from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy, dark ruddy copper with a creamy/fizzy beige head. Aroma is somewhat roasted malt with a lot of fruit, treacle and pepper notes. Gets a little nutty as well. Full bodied, or close enough. Flavor is nutty (has that oilness too), chocolate, fruit, hint of coffee, oak astringency, herby, touch of pepper, maybe a little banana ester. There are some traces of sour. Its kind of mouth drying. Pretty complex.

hopscotch (10992) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Bottle... Clear, dark, mahogany ale with a small, fat-bubbled, mushroom-colored head. Great retention. The nose is a swirl of toffee, toasted nuts, chocolate and vanilla with a hint of red wine. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with moderate carbonation. The flavor tilts only slightly toward the sweet side of balance, providing notes of chocolate, meat broth and herbal-rooty sarsaparilla tartness. Finishes tangy and acrid with a lengthy mocha aftertaste. Bottle generously shared by my good friend growler!

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep burgundy color with a creamy tan head. Aroma is sweet and malty, very ESB like with plenty of bready and doughy notes. a touch of sharpness. Flavor is sweet and some caramel breadiness with some underlying sweetness that fades out with a Guinness-like very slight sharpness. Medium body and a soft carbonation.

mcberko (16597) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2012
750mL bottle, pours a deep dark opaque amber with a medium beige head. Aroma has quite a bit of heat, with English malts, caramel malts, dark fruits and booze. Flavour brings out yeasty notes upfront, English malts and some dark fruits following. Too high carbonation which obscures the complexity. Decent stuff, but quite flawed.

750 ml caged and corked bottle, Batch 2012-2, best by 03-2013. Served in a DFH Signature glass, the beer pours a dark brown color with some reddish tints. Theres about an inch tan head that stays around for a while, and also a good amount of lacing. The aroma is sweet and fruity, it smells like dark fruit (raisins, plums, cherries), nuts, caramel, coffee, and some brown sugar. The brew tastes like sweet and tart dark fruit (cherries, raisins, plums, red grapes), caramel, brown sugar, molasses, nuts, oak, and some chocolate. Mouthfeel/body is medium, its creamy and has a moderate amount of carbonation. I liked this beer, and Im glad I got to try it. Definitely worth a try if you come across it.
