In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Bell's Brewery, Inc. Consecrator Doppelbock

Aroma: Medium malt sweetness and a bit of roastiness and toast. Some spicy noble hops and light fruit esters. Not a strong nose. Lacks complexity.

Flavor: Upfront malt flavor is sweeter than the aroma promises. Malt is rich, lightly toasted, and slightly nutty. Tasty, if a bit simplistic. Medium hop bitterness is balancing. Alcohol is a touch hot but dries the finish. A little sticky.

Overall: Enjoyable and well made, the flavor delivers more than the aroma. The alcohol could be better integrated into the overall flavor profile: It burns a little. Very well executed and a bit safe. Good body and a very rich malt profile.
