In the winter months, a good strong ale beats pretty much anything. Old ales, stouts, and barleywines rule the winter game. Personally, I think the old ale is the best representation of the winter months, and Bell’s Third Coast Old Ale is a great example. Bell’s is known for outstanding beers, like Hopslam and Expedition Stout, so it can be hard for a beer to stand out amongst this competition. Third Coast fits in nicely and stands out as an excellent old ale. Let’s take a look at Bell’s Third Coast Old Ale.



The Facts

  • Brewery – Bell’s Brewery
  • Beer Name – Third Coast Old Ale
  • ABV – 10.2%
  • Style – Old Ale
  • Serving Type – Bottle into snifter
  • Brewery Location – Kalamazoo, Michigan
  • Availability – Winter
  • Color – deep copper, amber
  • Head/Retention – Very small head, slight ring of retention
  • Aroma – heavy on alcohol with a little caramel
  • Taste – alcohol on the front with a candy sweetness in the middle
  • Finish – sweet with some hop character showing through



Overall Impression


I am a big fan of old ales, and this one fits exactly into what I expect from one. Nice and boozy with a generous helping of malty goodness. Hops are present, but muted with the huge malt character that this beer sports. Very low carbonation actually doesn’t detract from the mouthfeel, but actually adds to it. Overall this is a solid beer and just a great beer, especially for the cold winter months.
