Bell's Third Coast Old Ale

This 10.9% ABV beer is from Bell's Brewery of Comstock, Michigan. The beer pours a dark brown with ruby tints. There is a tall head of thick and creamy foam that is light brown in color. It leaves dense lacing down the glass. The aroma is rich, dark malt, dark caramel, a touch of raisins, herbal and spicy. The taste is a miraculous and delicious meld of dark caramel, pomegranate, plums, cherry, wood, tobacco, with a spicy finish and a definite heat from the alcohol. The finish is quite bitter. The mouthfeel is thick without being syrupy. This is a nice, delicious sipper of a beer.
