Boulevard Brewing Co.

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.

Batch 2012-2 Best by 03-2013

A - Pours a very dark and clear garnet with 3 fingers of beige head that creates a solid ceiling of bubbles. Some pretty nice lacing as well.

S - Roasted chocolate malt, espresso beans, raisins, roasted dates, light woodiness

T - Starts of with espresso, cocoa, roasted malts, toasted brown bread, a grape skin tartness clings to the top of the mouth and sides of the tongue. Some muted raisins, charred dates, and unripe cherries, some pine hops create a bitterness toward the dry finish.

M - Medium body, moderate stingy carbonation.

This drinks good but doesn't have the deep layers of malt and that I was hoping for. It does have a stingy effect on the palate from the carbonation and the tartness. I think this needs to sit for a couple of years. I would drink this again but wouldn't seek it out.

Poured into Chimay glass. Appearance is murky and purple in hue, thin head settles into a layer. Aroma is fruity at the start with some Belgiany esters. This is quickly countered by a more robust malt presence with notes of coffee, light roast. Taste starts sweet with notes of grape and berry. This is followed with a touch of lactic tartness and a bit of bitter coffee. The flavors are mending very nicely, the tartness throws off the robust qualities. The mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, interesting and unique, but not my favorite.
