On tap at 28 Springs in Siloam Springs, AR. Sweet, rich, brown sugar, tart, coffee. Basically, it's a mouthful. Very big palate.

I’m going to attempt to age the few bottles I have left. It’s so hard! The complexity and palate is phenomenal. eruizgarcia (354) - - SEP 18, 2012
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. fijifrank (4) - USA - SEP 22, 2012 does not count
12 oz. pour at the Anchor. Rich aromas of coffee and chocolate. Satifying finish. Needed to be served warmer than it was.

Pours an opaque brown with two finger tan head. Caramel, roasted, wood malt flavors that are fantastic. I can detect hints of cocoa and pepperiness. Herbal hoppy background. Mildly sweet initally then overtaken. Fully body with soft carbonation. Long mildy smokey finish. This is a well crafted beer that is insidiously well balanced given the ABV.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2013 Dark brown with beige head of foam. Nose of caramel, maple syrup. Taste dark fruits, coffee, spicey, with slight tart finish. Complex brew indeed. SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Pours ruby red with a medium sized khaki head. Smells of coffee, caramel, and light dark fruits. Taste is weak coffee, and mildly tart red fruits. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and fair mouth-carbonation, Boulevard Collaboration No. 3 Stingo finishes mildly tart and with some caramel sweetness.

In short: A fruity and bready-toasted rich burgundy ale where everything works wonderfully well together.portableparty (2379) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2012
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).
Bottle. Pours dark mahogany color with a nice khaki tight creamy head that slowly settles to a film and some spotty lacing. Aroma has dried banana and tart malt and some dusty caramel toffee scents. Taste is creamy malt bitterness with a touch of tart fruit and wood. Palate is medium and has nice carbonation with a woody dry finish. Really like this one!
