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.

Tämän oluen heikoin osio on ulkonäkö. Punertavan ruskea olut hyvin niukalla, beigellä vaahdolla. Tuoksu kypsän hedelmäinen ja karamellisen makea. Alkoholi tuoksussa yllättävän vahvasti esillä. Maku vahvan täyteläinen, karamellinen, hedelmäinen, lämmittävä. Alkoholi ei maistu. Ei juurikaan hiilihappoja, täyteläinen kokonaisuus, mutta ei yliampuvan makea. Toimii.

SlackerMads (3467) - DENMARK - AUG 4, 2016
Bottle. Hazy hazelnut brown with a medium sized diminishing tan head. Nuts, caramel, syrup, honey, warming alcohol, dark dried fruits. Full body, lots of sweetness but balanced by alcohol. Long warming finish. Fairly sweet and alcoholic.

4.5
Bawelt (874) - Lyon, FRANCE - AUG 3, 2016
Vint. 2015. Superbe. Nez très complexe et équilibré. Beaucoup de caramel, de mélasse, un fond noisette, un peu de cognac, de résineux, de pomme confite, un léger fond d’alcool. La bouche est finalement assez fine, très peu éthylique. Attaque caramel fumé, un peu grillé avec des notes de noix et noisettes. Des notes plus franches de cognac et d’épices. Magnifique équilibre et bel complémentarité.

Sweet molasses nose. Dark Amber, mild head. Sweet molasses with hint of citrus sweet cover and finish of honey. Thick mouth feel. Very good. Kinda lack luster for the hype
