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.

A very nice reddish brown color and light tan head start this one. Aroma is VERY nice...some fruit notes and a little sweetness. The flavor is nice, but doesn't quite live up to the nose of this one. A nice malty sweetness to it, though, but not as deep in flavor as some doppelbocks.

Opaque red color, small head. Sweet fruity aroma. Flavor is sweet, fruity, caramel and some hops.

A little thick, a little hoppy, and without the deep earth and high alcohol that I have some to expect (although I am not an aficianado of this style) - it does seem a bit too hoppy.

Pours brown with a tan head. Nose is slightly sweet, with a hint of smokiness. Flavor runs toward the sweet end, with touches of chocolate and caramel. Its adherence to the doppelbock style is unfortunately betrayed by a touch of green apple flavor and an overly pronounced hop profile which is rather bitter and includes shades of freshly cut green grass.

This Dopplebock poured a medium head and there was no lacing on the side of my mug. It had a sweet aroma to it. Not much carbonation. It poured a dark amber color. It had a smooth taste, but I have had better Dopplebocks in my taste testings.

Beautiful amber color woth orange glints and a huge orange head. Bocky aroma, really malty, caramle, sticky cake, cotton candy, a light floral/fruity aroma that is probably partially coming from the hops. Sweet with just a light roast and light bitterness on the finish. ingering cotton candy. Smooth and quite thick feeling. A good bock.

tkaufman (129) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2003
This poured very thick and a nice dark garnet color with a minimal head. Aroma was very subtle, but a little caramel and malt poked through. Flavor was rather unimpressive though when compared to other dopplebocks. Very little in the way of the definitive caramel malt flavors that you expect from a quality dopplebock. Finished slightly dry. Not a bad brew, but just not a great dopplebock.

Bell's rarely dissapoints me, and this is no exception. Thick tan head and deep amber color. Smells slightly fruity and caramely. The 8% is well disguised. Mild coffee/chocolate flavor, slightly bitter finish, evident maltiness. It has basically all of the good aspects of a Bell's stout without the sometimes overwhelming thick body. I would recommend this one to anybody.

JohnC (3000) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - APR 7, 2003
reddish brown, has a thick tongue feel and a bit of maltiness. OK, but not an overly impressive doppelbock

Dark ruby color. Very sweet malty nose and flavor. Alcohol is evident. Average, and missing a big, bold profile like Celebrator. Too sweet.
