COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned only. Previously 8.0%.
Some of the oak casks at Samuel Smith’s 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 brewery’s underground cellars deriving fruit, raisin, treacle toffee, Christmas pudding and slight oaky flavours, before being further naturally conditioned in bottle.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2016 Samuel Smith’s is a class act. I have enjoyed every beer I have had from them and this was no exception. Reddish brown color. Tastes of raisins, oak, toffee, tad of buttery-caramel. Strong but not overly syrupy. Lovely. Serving: Bottle

Pours murky brown with a small ring of light tan, khaki fizz. Smells sweet, oaky, with a nice vanilla characteristic, coupled with some caramel and dark fruit aromas. Taste is sweet, smooth caramel and vanilla flavors that waltz with some dark fruit, raisin, plum, fig, flavors. Medium to full bodied with a smooth, velvety texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Sam Smith Yorkshire Stingo finishes with some smooth sweetness that is reminiscent of vanilla.

I love the Yorkshire Squares! If these guys would get crazy with their beers and experiment with Belgium yeast, various hop varieties and fruits especially Plums they could make some epic beers. Stingo really has that Jack Daniels thing working it’s way through it. A manly beer. Fig, plum and raisin are present. I scored this for only 3.69 at Monument! I am going to get another one of these a mix it with a spicy, fruity Belgium beer. You can taste centuries of beer making in this. The fruity aspects really are incredible. Aroma is light but flavor is strong. Mild Barleywine character. Very enjoyable. Classy beer that stand out.
