I grabbed a mix and match sixer from a local snotty beer store and grabbed a couple Consecrator's as I had never had it before. All I can say is Bell's nailed it with this one!!!! Fantastic color, wonderful malty aroma and an extremely smooth mouthfeel. This is a Doppel that must be had. Wow!

The maltiness leads to a smooth finish with a slight hint of the alcohol content but is not at all overpowering. If you are a fan of doppelbocks or other malty beers, this one is a must try.

Bell’s Consecrator Dobbelbock demonstrates clearly what M. Jackson described as a "moreish beer." It is impossible to take a single sip and not return to the glass almost immediately. As the ABV suggests, this is not a session beer, but if you need to loosen up a bit, or are seeking a little comfort and warmth, this is the perfect beer. The beer has a beautiful mouth-feel that lingers. It pours a dark, dense brown with an intensely contrasting, compact head. While the hops are restrained and the malt forward and enveloping it is well balanced. This Dobbelbock is a perfect meal replacement during lent. It is also a fine companion for meals that we may seek when weary and hungry. This beer can stand up to the richest of dishes, but is also a fine beer when you need to round out your meal with a touch of hops and full-malty richness. I would also sip it as an after-dinner alternative.

Toasted malty aroma with a hints or raisins and plums. No hops or dieacetyl are evident. Medium sized dark tan head fades quickly to a thin film. Glowing dark brown beer with ruby highlights. Rich malty flavor is mildly sweet. Plum and dark sugar flavors peak their head in later on. A very slight bitterness cut the sweetness in the finish, but that bit of hops never threatens the malt dominance. There is a pleasant warming in my chest from the alcohol. Moderately carbonated with a fairly full body, but the sweetness never becomes overbearing. A great example of the style.

Pours a very light brown, bordering on amber. A gentle pour brings little to no head to speak of, and what there is dissipates quickly. Clear, no haze. Smells malty of molassas and licorice with a touch of hops to counter. Mouthfeel is light and delicate with just the right amount of carbonation. Goes down extremely smooth. Sweet up front with a tinge of alcohol. Fairly complex follow up with notes molassas and honey. Tastes like a dopplebock should, in short. Has zero bitterness in the finish. In fact, a sweetness lingers on the tongue making you want more.
