"Dark chestnut-amber hue.... Exotic winey aromas.... Shockingly vinous fruit.... Superlative."

"The first sip of Old Stock is a wow moment.... Old Stock demands respect and deserves every ounce of it."
Like a fine port, Old Stock Ale is intended to be laid down. With an original gravity of over 1.100 and a generous hopping rate, Old Stock Ale is well-designed to round out and mellow with age. It's brewed with classic Maris Otter malt and Fuggles and East Kent Goldings hops, all imported from England.
