BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States
boulevard.com

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Cloudy deep-brown, with a thick tan head.

Smell: Caramel and roasted malts on the nose, hops don't really come through

Taste: Beautiful. Rich and complex with caramel, nuts, leather, all that good stuff. It was slightly sweet but well balanced.

Mouthfeel: Very rich, low carbonation made it stick around awhile with a bit of alcoholic warmth.

Overall: A rare style wonderfully executed. I love this beer, and want to attempt a clone. Great for winter. Would go great with a rich stew.

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.
