North Coast Old Stock Ale

North Coast Old Stock Ale is dessert-like in flavor and richness

Most beer is made to be consumed fresh, but some are built to last or even improve over time like a fine wine.

North Coast’s Old Stock Ale is inspired by one such style, the 'olde ales' of England designed for long-term aging. This huge beer is loaded with everything that helps ales mature gracefully: massive amounts of malt, hops and alcohol. Dessert-like in flavor and richness, this beer is like liquid bread pudding. Laden with flavors of drunken fruits (rum-soaked raisins and brandied cherries), it nonetheless finishes drier than it starts, like a dusting of bittersweet cocoa. At over twelve percent alcohol, a party of four could reasonably share a standard bottle of Old Stock Ale as a nightcap after dinner, savored slowly from snifters. If you’d like to stock it away, store it upright in cool dark conditions for up to five years.
