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.

P:  Pitch black abyss crowned with a full finger of creamy cappuccino froth. Beautiful lacing on the sides that cling and won't let go.  

S:  Roasted malts, bourbon and coke, dark bread yeast, bubblegum, and banana taffy. 

T/M:  Sweet dark fruits, aged oak, roasted toffee, candied malt, bubblegum, brown sugar, flat coke and bournon, luke warm bitter breakfast coffee, and banana with clove. Finish is creamy and lingers smoldered grains,aged oak and subtle souring yeast at the end.  The overall palate has an aged tone to it which works well. 

O:  So excited to see this on tap.  I have a bottle at the house but jumped on the opportunity to review on tap. As expected this is a huge winner in my book. Excellent complex flavors, roasty, bready, great alcohol flavor and a surprising sour kick at the end. Be sure to try this you won't be let down. Cheers!

I poured the bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance- Semi transparent, dark brown color with a finger and a half worth of tan head. Fair amount of lacing.

Smell- Nutty malt sweetness with notes of fruit and some yeast.

Taste- Malt flavors and some nuttiness at the start with tart fruit flavors at the finish. Well blended.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied and crisp. Large amount of prickly carbonation.

Overall- Good beer. It reminded me of a brown ale mixed with wild ale. I will be having this one again.

My neighbor, bless his soul, bought a bottle of Stingo over from downstate IL. The beer pour a dark cloudy brown with red hue. The head is a off white bubbly head that is not leaving much lace. The smell has malt and good earthy tones. The taste is big...and strong. There is a prevalent malt base and hints whiskey sweet mash. There is also a healthy bitterness which perhaps is why it's named Stingo. The mouthfeel is a full body beer with big carbonation. Overall it's a big beer to sip....not to session.

Pour - Dark chestnut brown. Lacey white head that leaves a thin rim about the glass.

Smell - heavy caramel, coffee, with a hint of chocolate reminds me of almost a stout.

Taste - GOOD! Light on the tongue, notes of coffee. The description on the bottom "a hint of tartness against a rich, malty background"

Another win for boulevard. Seems like a great mix with Pretty Things. Definitely something to pick up unless you hate coffee beers.
