Consecrator is a traditional doppelbock-style fermented with a Bohemian lager yeast. Reddish brown in color, with a mild hop profile, Consecrator is a well balanced, full bodied beer with hints of caramel and molasses in its smooth, malty finish. Brewed for a Fat Tuesday release.

Lager smell, slightly toasty, some hazelnut, smells like an Oktoberfest. Looks great. Crisp on the palate with a roasted coffee aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bought a single bottle at the store. Have only sampled German Dopplebock’s in the past. Poured into a pint glass. Sniff is very mild, had to try several times to get the aroma. Once I did this beer has a lovely butterscotch scent. Wish it was a bit stronger but amazing none the less. When first poured the appearance is very nice. Head is silky and a pleasant amber color of the body. Unfortunately the head fades quickly and leaves ok coating on glass. This is where the beer impresses most, the flavor. Much better than the German doppelbocks I have tried, possibly because I live in same state as Bell’s brewery and German bottles sitting too long on shelf. The taste is very good balance of sweet and malty. A smooth butterscotch flavor without overpowering sweetness. The body is about medium and has average carbonation. This beer is quite smooth for abv and perfect for fall or winter. Bell’s has a consistent lineup. Now to try this with a paczki!

Bottle, as pictured. Drank out of the bottle so can’t comment on the appearance. Deep, boozy feel to it. A little bit of cherry, a little bit of brown sugar/burnt sugar. Nice beer.

Very special beer. Love the label. Very smooth and complex. I thought the overall taste and palate were extremely delightful.

not a disappointment. it’s solidly among my favorite DBs. big bready aroma, sweet malt, a touch of booze and a touch of hops, with much more of the same in the flavor. nails the liquid bread aspect DBs are good for. "

2014/09/29 - Pours a clear, dark mahogany colour with a fizzy, khaki head that quickly reduces to a film. No lacing. Aroma is molasses, biscuit, apple, dark fruits and caramel. Taste is lots of dark fruits (plumbs, figs and raisins, sweet toffee, roasted malt, mild molasses,brown sugar and a touch of sweet booze. Mouthfeel is medium and slightly oily with smooth carbonation and a sweet, mildly boozy finish. Rather enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle served in a Unibroue snifter. Bottled 9 Feb. 2012. {from June 2012 notes} Pours a clear, dark mahogany, with a short-lived, one-finger, off-white head. The aroma is a fruity mix of medium toasted malts and a dash of hops. There is much more fruit in the mouth than in the nose, with suggestions of prunes, figs and cooked raisins. A subtle hint of butterscotch toffee in the flavor. Some hints of brandy in both the nose and the taste. In fact, the nose is a bit boozy although the high ABV is fairly well hidden in the mouth. Rather sweet, particularly mid-taste but even in the lingering, fruity aftertaste. M: medium body; low carbonation that I felt should be a tad higher. O: A very drinkable imperial dopplebock that is a bit sweeter and fruitier than usual.
