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

Craft Islington bottleshare. Thanks to Leighton. Hazy deep amber beer, tidy cream colour head. Palate is light and dry with decent fine carbonation. Airy malts, a little cream. Tangy fruits. Spicy bubblegum esters. Tangy fruity finish. If this is a tribute to Sam Smith Stingo, well it’;s a nice thought but not a patch on that beer.

mcberko (17825) - 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.
