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.

LarsHolmer (113) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2016
Dec 21st 2016 just opened a 2007 Old Stock Ale. An inch of latte-coloured head after almost ten years! Still a light sweet palate with a hint of dried fruit, but much drier than nine years ago.. Traces of licorice in the end. heavy body could be a replacement for port to heavy framage affiné...

Szopeen (599) - POLAND - DEC 14, 2016
2016 Vintage. Barwa ciemno brązowa, wpadająca w miedzianą, ładna, długo utrzymująca się piana. Przepyszne, mocarne piwo. Nuty suszonych owoców, rodzynek, toffi. Mimo swojej mocy, bardzo gładkie, aksamitne, a jednocześnie pełne wrażeń. Świetne piwo.

3.5
Zlotta (3731) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - DEC 11, 2016
0.355 l bottle from ’Bierkompass’, 2014 vintage. Clear, very deep ruby with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, off-white head. Sweetish, malty and quite fruity aroma of raisins, prunes, candied cherries, toffee and vanilla. Rather sweet, very malty and slightly fruity taste of raisins, prunes, vanilla, toffee and candied cherries, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, moderately warming-alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very nice, not as deep as expected or hoped, still quite hot, a bit too fizzy as well. Nevertheless a satisfying sipper.

4.3
