COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned only. Previously 8.0%.
Some of the oak casks at Samuel Smiths date back more than a century with the individual oak staves being replaced by the Old Brewery coopers over the years. Gradually the casks soak in more & more of the character of the ale fermented in stone Yorkshire squares. Yorkshire Stingo is aged for at least a year, matured in these well-used oak casks in the brewerys underground cellars deriving fruit, raisin, treacle toffee, Christmas pudding and slight oaky flavours, before being further naturally conditioned in bottle.

Croff (164) - Ostra Sonnarslov, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2010
Pours a darker amber. Off white head that slowly fades to lace. Aroma of oak, caramel, and malt. Fruity caramel sweet flavor. Bubbly mouth feel. Alcohol is noticeable, but not over done. Light, smooth short lasting dry finish. It is a interesting brew and overall it is pretty good and unique brew. But I dont think I would have another.

thagr81_us (175) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Served from bottle into a Euro pint. Poured a nice copper color with a two finger off-white head. No lacing was apparent. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt and a slight oak hint. The flavor of this brew was sweet and had a medium feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a nicely flavored brew that was quite refreshing. This was a very nice offering from Samuel Smith. Too bad it is a limited release...
