BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States

Style: English Strong Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

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.

Has a chocolate and prune nose that suggests a dark, moist freak fruit cake. It pours barely translucent chestnut to mahogany under a 2” light foam cap that slowly dissipates. This has an intensely creamy, foamy palate with chocolate, prune, dried fruit, sherry, and treacle with a very light funk. It is very effervescent – almost like eating a foam or very light mousse. It becomes more creamy as it settles down and a slight alcohol warming becomes more apparent. Boulevard should brew more of this.
