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.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2004
12 oz bottle, tulip glass. Caramel and dark bread malt (M); light brown sugar nose with an unfortunate hint of green apples. Moderately sweet flavor becomes a moderately sweet finish. I taste watermelon Jolly Ranchers. In fact, that’s all I taste. Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: another artifically sweet American doppelbock.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 7, 2004
This doppelbock pours iwth a murky brown body with reddish tinting, topped by a medium thick head with a good amount of lacing. The aroma is sweet, malty and fruity with notes of caramel apples, a touch of butter and the slightest bit of alcohol. The flavor is sweet, malty and full of apple. There is a slight bitternes, especially in the finish, and a slight breadiness with alcohol in the background. Full bodied, smooth and warming.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 6, 2004
6148 marked on the neck-banded bottle. Clear mahogany-red body, very small ring of bubbles. No lacing. Heavy malt aroma, has caramel, molasses and overripe banana/plum. There’s a dry, grainy component as well. The flavor has a tart woodiness. It’s sweet of course, focusing on caramel and dark fruit , but it has a strong tart wood as well. The finish has sweet tartness with a touch of bitter hops. I think I like my dopplebocks a little sweeter and hoppier a la Autmnal Fire. This guy is an odd one with its tart flavors.

envane (569) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2004
Pours a dark red with a small fast disappearing tan head. Smell is malt, soy sauce and fruit. Taste is not that sweet for a dopplebock: malty, earthy, roasty, slightly fruity, however, there was a off-twang I didn;t like. Finish is malty, a little hops, and alcohol. Thanks to slikwily for this.

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2005 It smelled fruity with a hint of grain. It was brown and had a fizzy off-white head with good lacing that diminishes quickly. Flavor is sweet and finishes sweet. Good body with a creamy texture.

temporrari (397) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 18, 2004
2002 vintage on tap: I can't say I liked this beer exactly, or disliked it. I dunno what to say about this beer. It was very odd. Like nothing I've had. I expected something similar to Celebrator, got nothing of the sort. Cloudy, opaque dark brown, long lasting tan head. I don't know what else to say besides it was weird and off, didn't taste like anything I've ever had, and it really wasn't all that impressive. The only Bell's that has let me down so far. Also, only my second doppelbock.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 14, 2004
Hazy ruby in colour with medium frothy rich tan/brown head. Nose is hard with alcohol with underlying malty nose. The taste is initially malty and sweet then moves to like a wheaty or maybe toffie with alcohol ish flavour. So good and interesting not as sweet as I like but still good dopplebock.

better than ayinger? definitely fresher for those of us here. one of the best i've had. not too dark, or cloyingly sweet. almost a food like satisfaction from drinking it though. definitely try to buy a few if you find them
