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.

Decent, notes of malty fruit combined with traditional dopplebock style makes this a nice brew, not overly impressed but a nice choice.

bottle. poured a fiery reddish orange with a quickly fading tan head. sweet malty aroma and flavor and with an 8% abv it has a bit of a kick upon finishing the glass. Good beer but can’t say I enjoyed it much as the Illini go down to defeat in the conference finale at Ohio State for the first time this season to ruin their chance at an unfeated regular season.

Malt carmel raisin aroma, sweet mellow malt with hints of currant and figs, smooth and sweet in the aftertaste, this is right up there with Ayinger and my other favorite doppels

Deep amber/red color. Medium sized tan head. Aroma is alochol, fruit, malt, and yeast. Body is fairly heavy, with flavors of sweet malt, fruit, brown sugar, and yeast. Thanks to Dough77 for sending me this one.

Thx to duane for this one, pour is a deep amber with a cream colored head faded down to some light lacing. Smell is on the yeasty side, with some hops, but not alot. Flavor is also packing a good amount of yeast, with the molasses coming out at the end. A solid malty palate and a medium body give way to a very smooth tasting, easy to drink beer. This could be a little better if it had a little more body and a little less malt, but otherwise, a very drinkable beer.

Pleasant aroma of strawberry with alcohol quite evident, leading to a bleachy effect. Orange-wine color with little head or lacing. Strawberry-malt dominates the flavor, with hops attempting to make it through. Finish is relaxing but still malty - could use more hops in my personal opinion. Not Bell’s best, but at 8% this is quite warming in the cold night of a Winter’s day.

Bottle thanks to lmgraz1 for sharing. Hazy, dark amber color with a small off white head. Aroma was barely noticeable(some sweet maltiness) and the bottle was served at around 60 deg. Very sweet flavor of malt and caramel. Alcohol was extremely evident from start to finish. I would have guessed the alc/vol. to be over 10%. Disappointing.

Thanx to Duane, the man. poured reddish brown, with small head. Aroma of sweet malts, taste was the same. Sour bitter sweet finish. Nice beer but there was something lacking. There was something missing. As I said nice beer, but a little light for a double bock, oh, the alcohol was present from start to finish.

Astringent comes to mind. Flabby (for those of you with a wine background). The astringent quality coupled with the high carbonation could make this a decent beer to pair with spicy or fatty foods. In general, a average brew with a bit too much alcohol and not enough flavor or body that could be good with Tex-Mex or after mowing the lawn.
