Notes/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.

Bubbly, dirty white and thick goes the froth on this one. Retention is excellent. Color is dark brown.

Sweet in aroma with an almond nuttiness, vinegar and a wisp of smoke floating through.

Flavor involves a distinct and eclectic mix of grain and nuts, dark fruits, some tanginess, and a burnt woodiness followed by an afterthought of hops.

Dry for the most part with alcohol noticeable only in the aftertaste. Mouth-feel is light to medium.

Imaginative brew that leads to another big win for Boulevard.

4.04/5  rDev +4.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a cork & caged 750 mL bottle in to a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. Label reads, batch 2012-3. Best by 03-2013, but I'm not too worried.

A: Dark reddish-brown with 1 finger khaki head. Ok retention. Light lacing. Pretty nice.

S: A bit light overall, but malty fruit, raisin, dried cherry, slight spice. Quality is nice, but subdued. Maybe the age?

T: Nice tartness up front with cherry tang and mild spice notes. Some cracked pepper. This yields, somewhat late, to a smooth, kinda oaky, roasted malt with a semi-dry finish. Nice chocolate in the finish and aftertaste. Some lingering tartness which is very nice. Admittedly fairly boozy for 8.5% ABV, but I don't mind. Seems appropriate.

M: Moderate carbonation with moderate body. Neither here nor there, but pretty smooth, I'd say.

O: So, I was a bit skeptical out of the gates, but this one definitely grew on me. Thinking back, it was the same with the Samuel Smith Stingo. I takes a few big pulls to really get into these, but in the end I thoroughly enjoy the mildly sour/malty fusion. I wish more breweries put these out.

Prost!
