A super great stout-like beer!! Nice dark color, and great, maltiness on the nose. The taste is, well, GREAT!!! Nice semi-sweet front of tongue, malts and coffee throughout, and mouth feel is rich and creamy. Finish is smooth and slightly sweet, with chocolate and coffee. Another Bell’s triumph...

gripweed57 (1514) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAR 23, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Copper colored pour with a large rocky beige head. Aroma is toasted caramel malt with notes of apple pie. Flavor is sweet toasted malt upfront. Obvious caramel and baked apple notes. Smooth and flavorful, with boozy notes in middle. Buttery malty finish is rich and satisfying. Quite faithful to the German Dppelbock style.

This is an extremely good beer. The sweet and caramel malts blend well to make an extremely good beer.

Andrew196 (1739) - Katy, Texas, USA - MAR 11, 2017
Draft at Growler - pours a red-copper, ivory head. Malty blast on the nose, caramel, wood, molasses, holiday spice. Similar on the tongue with a smooth mellow feel. Nutty, but not too nutty like one often sees with the style, leather, caramel, tootsie rolls, clove. Good.

Tognetta (849) - Săo Paulo, BRAZIL - MAR 9, 2017
Avermelhada quase vinho, leve turbidez, espuma marrom avermelhada de media formaçăo e pouca persistęncia. Aroma bastante adocicado, chiclete de tutti fruti, morango e leve passas. Paladar de médio dulçor caramelado sem amargor. Corpo leve e baixa carbonataçăo. Final tende a um gosto maltado aparentemente artificial, novamente tutti fruti. Bem longe de doupplebock alemăs como Weihenstephaner e Ayinger.

Malty copper aroma similar to a penny. Nice amber color with no head. The taste is also like a penny with a slight trace of hops. Light palate. The ABV is very well hidden, other than that this is a very average beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Orangish reddish brown. Aroma is mild- nutty chocolate mineral, sweet caramel with a bit of toastyness, citrus. TAste is caramel,mineral, soft, sharp malts, light chocolate, malty, black peppery molasis, some spices like cardamom and other winterspices. Nice dopplebock- not a favorate style but nice to have on occasion.

Biroholik (1139) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - JAN 21, 2017
Kolor: Brązowy z czerwonymi refleksami. Piwo jest mocno zamglone.
Piana: Żółta, drobnopęcherzykowa, raczej słaba. Na starcie poszła gwałtownie do góry, ale opadała równie szybko do miniaturowej otoczki. Po 5 minutach nawet ona zniknęła bez śladu. Po zakręceniu kufelkiem nic się nie dzieje na jego ściankach.
Zapach: Pierwsze aromaty są w klimacie melasy i deserowej czekolady. Po paru chwilach dołącza do nich intensywna słodowość. Górują elementy tostowe, melanoidowe, chleb razowy. W tle delikatna wędzonka ogniskowa. Przy większej temperaturze dochodzi do bukietu odrobina karmelu.
Smak: W smaku słodkie, intensywnie słodowe, bardzo przyjemne w odbiorze. Duża w tym zasługa melasy i akcentów słodkiej czekolady. Poza tym lekkie miodowe utlenienie, masa melanoidowych klimatów, skórka chlebowa, tosty. Na koniec dużo karmelu i kapka toffi. Goryczka znikoma, krótki, gładki finisz. Gęsta tekstura i nieograniczona pijalność. Niezwykle smaczny Doppelbock. Nawet 8% alkoholu nie przeszkodziło w tym, aby zniknął w 5 min. z moich oczu.
Wysycenie: Średnie.
Podsumowanie:
Bell’s Brewery udowadnia tym piwem swoją wielkość i klasę. Pokazują, że potrafią warzyć również tradycyjne style. Consecrator Doppelbock swoją nazwą prowokuje i uderza w wzorzec stylu czyli Celebratora z Brauerei Aying. Jest bardzo stylowy z nutkami melasy, czekolady deserowej, masa melanoidowych niuansów, karmelem oraz toffi. Wcale nie tako nudny styl, jak niektórzy uważają. Trzeba po prostu trafić na odpowiednie piwa ;) Piwo kupione w sklepie Mikkellera w cenie 45 DKK.

leghorn99 (254) - roma, ITALY - NOV 7, 2016
Versa nel bicchiere di colore ambrato profondo, quasi rubino; la schiuma č ben presente e fine, di colore beige, di buona persistenza. L’aroma sprigiona grande intensitŕ ed č molto accogliente: note di uva passa, fichi, caramello, malto; luppolo a base di erbe, e tabacco. La Consecrator ha un corpo medio ed una moderata carbonazione. Malto tostato e alcune note di caramello lasciano il posto a note di luppolo a base di erbe, prugne secche, uva passa, e un tocco di cioccolato. Il retrogusto č amarognolo ma in minima parte; ed aiuta a mantenere questa Lager piů sul lato dolce. La Doppelbock di Bell č liscia, pulita, e molto divertente.
