800th Ratebeer Rating – North Coast Old Stock Ale 2008

Bottle (2008 Vintage) – Poured a dark reddish brown in color with a medium thick tan head that hung in and produced some good lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty and slightly sweet with elements of caramel, toffee, lightly roasted malts and some alcohol. Flavor was very complex… caramel malt, some hops and some dark fruitiness (raisins, dates, prunes). Alcohol definitely apparent, but not overpowering (until I finished). Quite thick palate. An excellent barley wine… I really enjoyed this one.
