Yorkshire Stingo

Yorkshire Stingo is an ale aged in oak barrels that have been reused for over 100 years. The barrels impart significant flavor that varies over time. I had one that was brewed in 2013. It poured a nice light brown color with a medium white head. There were distinct subtle sour cherry notes, along with some slight toffee, raisin and almost a leather kind of feel, but not in a bad way. There were some subtle earthy hop tones as well. The body was lighter than I expected. This was very drinkable and I enjoyed the dark fruitiness. Some people might not care for the light sourness. Also, it’s a little pricey at $11.99 for an 18 oz. bottle. Nevertheless, I enjoyed with some pork chops, which I think go especially well with this beer. I would have it again with pork chops or steak, or some other meaty kind of meal.
