Cellar Reserve 2009
North Coast Brewing’s Old Stock Ale Cellar Reserve is a special batch of its award-winning Old Stock Ale. The vintage 2009 brew has been aged for 18 months in oak Bourbon barrels and is one of the most exciting beers we’ve produced since we began our barrel-aging program back in 1998. Old Stock Cellar Reserve is bottled in a distinctively decorated 500 ml bottle with a cork and wire finish and is available in a limited number of distributors in select markets.
North Coast Brewing – North Coast Old Stock Ale 2009 Cellar Reserve (Bourbon Barrel)
Appearance: Pours a dark mahogany with a dancing seltzer like head that quickly dissapears to nothing. You can see little bubbles rising to the top well after the pour, this thing looks pretty carbonated. It gave a nice pop when I opened it. The bear doesn’t anything on the sides of the glass either.
Aroma: Smokey woody bourbon, apple pie, pipe tobacco, sugar cookies
Taste: Milk chocolate covered caramel squares,decent straight bourbon,burnt dark sugar,green apple. Finishes with alcohol spice and warmth.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with some alcohol sting and lively carbonation.
Overall: An amazing beer.
