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.

Caramel to red in color with a quickly dissapating off white head that didn’t leave any lace. The aroma starts off fruity almost cidery and then mellows to heavy yeasty malt aroma as it warms. The flavor is malty but not too sweet, and then a spicey yeast finish. It has lots of body, a heavy malt finish that leaves an effervescence. It leaves me wanting more.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2011 Let me start out by saying that this is a style that I rarely find examples of that I enjoy. I like this brewer a decent amount so I figured I would try their version. +++Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a nice red-mahogany color with a small tan head. The aroma was rich and malty with some molasses and toasted caramel. The flavor was sweet, malty and had a hint of molasses. The finish was a bit sour and overall had a bit of a vegetable flavor.

PorterPounder (7241) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2004
Sweet, malty aroma, reminiscint of dates, raisins and cherries. Dark orange to light brown murky appearance. Thin off-white head. Flavor has elements of chocolate, baked brown bread and dates, with just a wee bit of alcohol seeping through. Thick, chewy, mouthfeel. Overall, an excellent dopplebock.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - JUL 13, 2004
What a doppelbock! Pours a dark brown-red rust color with a nice firm head. Aroma is Malt/spice. Taste is full-body malty and choclatey. The alcohol doenst come through as much as one would think. Finishes with a yeasty malty ending. I’ve never used so many Ys in a rating. Y?

muzzlehatch (4605) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 2, 2004
12 oz bottle, at Hopleaf, Chicago. Deep bronze, clear, no head. Simple light caramel aroma; nothing much besides molasses on the nose. Syrupy, with hints of charcoal in the finish. Rather poor for a doppelbock and a disappointment from Bells.

aracauna (3496) - Georgia, USA - JUN 30, 2004
Deep red-colored body with a yellow cornmeal head. The medium-sized head forms easily and then fades. The aroma is malty with a slight pepperines. The sweet, malty flavor is warm and closing in on thick, but it’s not a big flavor. Very smooth. There’s a slight graininess in the flavor. The alcohol shows through a bit in the finish.

Pretty good, especially for a high alcohol content micro-beer. So often this style suffers from overly winey or harsh flavors at the expense of a completeness. This beer is well balance and malty with a refreshing spice. The clarity is poor and the head retention is marginal, but the hints of toffee and caramel make up for what is lacking in presentation. The aroma is mild with a buttery scent. The aftertaste lingers a bit strange on the tongue, but overall it is quite good.
