3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I saw this at a liquor store once and I thought I needed to get it because Iíve never seen it before, but we went to the store for something else do I didnít get it. Since then, Iíve been regretting not getting it and have been trying to go back to that store, but the problem is that itís far away. Then I find myself at bells brewery and they have it on tap so I have to get it. It is a very nice dark amber red color. It smells and tastes like caramel malts. Thatís all I really tastes and itís a pretty good beer. Iím not sure if is buy a six pack but I could see myself getting this at a bar again.

Pours a rust copper color with an orangish-tan head. Plum and toffee on the nose. Moderately thick with adequate carbonation. Tastes approximate the nose except that the plum and toffee come through more prominently.

Bottle. Really loved this one. Deep, amber-copper color. Light head. Aroma was fruit cake, hints of molasses. Taste is dried fruit, fruit cake, malty sweet. Not bad.

Beautiful brown pour. Brown sugar and cherry aroma. Nice residual sweetness with bready undertones. Slightest of phenolic on the back end but great beer

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nose is full of dried fruit and cherry. Some grape. Light sherry. Deep red to brown with a small off white head. Taste is slightly sweet with a moderately to highly watery mouthfeel. Not necessarily oxidized but just flat and thin in malt presence. A shame since it smells so good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured clear amber -- very attractive color. Aroma is mild but nice. Flavor is smooth but a little bland all-around. Leaves you a dry, sour aftertaste. Not bad and very drinkable, but missing something...
Had it with some spicy hummus -- balanced well!!!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer pours a clear brownish red with a medium off-white head, and the aroma blends roasted malts, caramel, lager yeast, slight hints of coffee, and slight hints of toffee. The taste is quite umami, slightly sweet, and a touch sour, and the aftertaste is malty, hearty, and slightly sweet without overpowering the tongue. The palate has a soft carbonation, thick texture, and a medium body.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Poured into a snifter. Dark mahogany brown with beige head that quickly dissipates. Light malt aroma (kind of underwhelming). Taste is malty with big dark/dried fruit bouquet: prune, black mission fig, currant and plum. Slightly boozy on the palate as well. Oily mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Fairly toasted sweet finish.

Iím not sure what happened with Bellís Consecrator Doppelbock Beer. This is a brewery that usually makes great stuff across all styles, but for some reason this beer just seems off to me. Itís not especially delectable or aromatic, though it is no challenge to drink. What shouldíve been something great is only okay at best.
I poured a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass. It was bottled on 1/24/15 and cost $4.19 ($0.35 per ounce).
Appearance: Beautiful burgundy hue, fairly clear. Pours to a two-finger, tan, soapy which mostly dissipates and leaves minor lacing.
Smell: Rather strong alcohol aroma, hint of fruit and some earthy hop character.
Taste: Thereís a certain maltiness found in doppelbocks, and I was hoping to get that here. And while this beer is certainly more malty than hoppy, itís lacking in distinctive character. Instead of caramel, toffee, etc., I only get mild dark fruit and a lot of alcohol. Thereís also a surprisingly strong hop presence as well. Slightly earthy and dry, perhaps with a touch of spice. There seems to be some kind of vegetal presence, though faint. A dash of vanilla from the booze, but otherwise I find the palette to be on the mild side.
Drinkability: One thing Bellís Consecrator Doppelbock Beer has going for it is its delivery. The mouthfeel is nice and thick with a smooth texture. The 8% ABV makes itself known in the form of warmth (and a bit in the taste), though I would not describe it as a hot brew at all. Iíd expect more complexity and intensity for the body, but whatís here is quite drinker-friendly.
