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 ruby red with light white head. A faint caramel, candied and fruit malt aroma. A caramel malt taste thatís a little smoky. A smoky and malty aftertaste.

Sitting at the bar on a throne of good fortune at The Gingerman in NYC, I though "yes! I shall have the bells!" I don't detect much aroma but the beer is adequate, it almost tastes of Carmel at first sip. Just found out there is a whiskey version and now my biggest regret as I sit on my bar throne is not getting that instead. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BOD 2/01/17 Pours a clear dark amber with a heavy dose of garnet. Normal head volume, normal retention for the style, slightly sub-par lacing. Very good nose but it is a bit subdued. It is slightly nutty, hints of bready malt and an extremely subtle hint of lightly charred wood. Deep underneath are subtle hints of molasses with a whiff of caramel. The complexity is there but you have to look for it. Rich full body that is deliciously creamy with a very smooth slick texture. World class carbonation / body balance. The effervescence is perfectly constructed to allow the flavors to pop yet not distract from the complexity. The middle is vibrant and the finish prickly. One of the most perfect balances I have ever had the pleasure to consume. The flavor profile is quite outstanding and delivers where the nose fell a bit short. The base is a rich molasses and caramel background that is just sweet enough to take center stage in the middle while allowing the other complex flavors their time in the spotlight. Bitterness is subtle yet just enough for contrast, especially from the middle on. Unlike the nose, the base malt flavor is more biscuit than bready. Complexity is world class as was the balance. In addition to nuts detected in the nose, light prune, light dates, leather and tobacco are evident. The finish is a slow fade that is prune like with a touch of uncovered alcohol.

MetalNHopHead (1858) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - MAY 2, 2017
Nebraska decided to give Winter a second change recently, so it seemed like a good time to enjoy a Doppelbock. Consecrator is about everything you could want in a German-style malt bomb. Mahogany color with a somewhat rocky head (my bottle was also a gusher which is probably my own damn fault). Nose has malty and fruity sweetness. Caramel, molasses, and dried apricot flavors. Full-bodied and warm. Hop bitterness is almost nonexistent. This drinks very easily for 8%. It tastes like something that could have come from Germany instead of the Midwest.

ginotarugo (62) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2017
Minimal head. Alcohol taste is very evident, though not overwhelming. Still a little much for me. I found myself anxious for my mug to be empty so I didnít have to drink it anymore. Felt obliged to finish it considering how much I paid for the bottle. Troegenator hides ABV much better and overall is superior to this.

A nice bock. Great example of the style. Pours a brownish red. Aromas of bread, sweet malts. Tastes like it smells. Toasty and tasty.
