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.

Full-bodied. Soft carbonation. Strong alcohol present. Other than that it was hard for me to peg down. Definitely needs to warm up. Didn't even care for it out of the fridge. Might be worth buying some to let age ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SvanteL (591) - SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2017
2017-08-29 testade jag årgång 2016 mot 2012. 2016: Röd bärnsten, disig med beiget skum. Söt fruktig doft med dova toner av vax, lite blommig. Söt smak med torkad frukt, nästan ingen beska. Söt och god men inte så mycket karaktär. 2012: Röd bärnsten, nästan klar, beiget sum. Söt doft, fruktigare än 2016. Även smaken är sötare som plommon i madeira, klara dessertvinstoner. Fyllig, sött komplex, stor, lite oljig munkänsla. Har vunnit på lagringen som givit en större sötma men även komplexitet. 4,1 gäller årgång 2012, årgång 2016 får 3,7.

Taste: Rich, malty,, warming alcohol, clean finish. Malty boozy nose. Copper, clear, tan head with a refined lattice of lace. Full but not heavy body.

Michael27 (2207) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 19, 2017
Aus der Flasche getrunken (Kauf bei Getränkefeinkost Berlin). Version von 2015. Dunkles Rotbraun mit dünner Schaumdecke im Glas. In der Nase wuchtige Malzigkeit. Interessantes Prinkeln am Gaumen. Ziemlich straffer Körper. Alkohol könnte besser eingebunden sein.

BeerViking (4947) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2017
2012 bottle share at Chriso’s, rich brown with a lasting ring, vanilla, caramel and wood on the nose, syrupy and dry-sweet, peppery and lightly fruity.

datrael (539) - Krakow, POLAND - JUL 28, 2017
Vintage 2016. W aromacie kandyzowane owoce, dzikie jagody, miód gryczany, troche karmelu. W wygladzie miedziane z obraczka kremowej piany. W smaku kandyzowane owoce, figi, rodzynki, melasa, lesne jagody, miód gryczany, chleb razowy. Zdecydowanie slodkie, cialo geste, zawiesiste, degustacyjne, lekka goryczka. Ogólnie old ale w stylu angielskiego barley wine o owocowym profilu, niezle piwo

Bottle. It poured a murky reddish brown with a off-white head. The aroma has notes of dark fruits, brown sugar, and caramel. It is a little bozzy. Very nice sipping ale.

Butelka. Piwo uciekło z butelki. Nieco metaliczne, suszone owoce, ogólnie pustawko.
