North Coast Old Stock Ale 2018 Cellar Reserve Rye Whiskey
Today I'm checking out North Coast Brewing's Old Stock Ale 2018 Cellar Reserve, aged in rye whiskey barrels. Nicely packaged in 500mL bottles, small-batch, limited release, 13.5% alcohol. Perfect for a chilly December afternoon in Miami (60°F)!
Dark brown with reddish highlights. Wow! Big aroma of whiskey and brown sugar. Awesome flavors! Brown sugar, toffee, raisins, fruitcake soaked in booze. The rye whiskey is definitely noticeable but nicely adds more flavor.
Very rich body, plenty of sweetness with a sugary aspect. And while the alcohol is there, it's well incorporated and an enhancement for all of the flavors. Pick up a bottle!
