COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As a continuation of North Coast Brewing Co.’s commitment to quality, our Old Stock Ale is crafted in the tradition of our critically acclaimed Pranqster Belgian Style Golden Ale and Old Rasputin Imperial Stout. It’s brewed with classic floor-malted Maris Otter Pale Malt and Fuggles Hops imported from England, so it’s a beer to be served proudly. Like a fine wine, North Coast’s Old Stock Ale is intended to be laid down. With an original gravity of over 1100 and a generous hopping rate, Old Stock Ale is well-designed to round-out and mellow with age. North Coast Brewing Co. Old Stock Ale is a vintage dated ale. We produce a small quantity each year and it remains available from release date until our stock is depleted.

Saeglopur (1597) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JAN 3, 2016
355 ml bottle, 2015 vintage, from Beervana Munich.
Dark copper, hazy body, with a quite small, fizzy, creamy, beige head.
Aroma of caramel, toast, dark berries, dried fruits, brown sugar, some spices.
Taste is quite boozy, with caramel, cocoa, dried fruits, berries, toast, honey, some coffee.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes roasty, medium dry, warm, alcoholic, with toast, cocoa, coffee, some caramel, some fruits.

Very nice. Interesting fruity notes, combined with sweet and roasty notes. Pretty boozy, maybe a bit too much. Overall not my favourite style example, quite different to others I’ve had, but a really enjoyable winter warmer nonetheless.

adster (632) - HUNGARY - NOV 28, 2015
Klasszikus karakter hordozója, réz színű főzetünk minden ízében a hagyományok itala. A vékonyka habgyűrű már az alkoholfok mértékének tudatában sem meglepő, eleve örömteli, hogy egyáltalán van. Fűszeres illatai gyógynövénylikőrök karakterét villantják meg, akácméz és fahordó, bogyós gyümölcsök téli hangulata járja át a levegőt. Cukrozott paradicsomlés, fenyőgyantás, komló és maláta súlyától roskadozó ízvilága tagadhatatlan brit mondanivaló megnyilvánulása; pikáns jegyei klasszikusan elegáns, sokszínű és izgalmas tartalom kinyilatkoztatásai. Csakúgy, mint maga a műfaj, az Old Stock Ale is izgalmas és semmihez nem fogható, igazi különlegesség.
