My name is Matt and I’m a beer guy. For me, there is no pleasure greater than good friends, good food, and good brews. This blog is meant to inform and guide fellow beer lovers to what they might like. I’ll discuss beers according to my tastes, but if the description sounds like something you generally like, then go ahead and try it! One beer may not be for me, but it might be your new favorite.

Consecrator Doppelbock – Bell’s Brewery, Comstock, MI.
 ABV: 8%
Style: Doppelbock.
Drank: 12 oz. bottle.
Pour: Reddish-brown and cloudy.
Head: Thin, dissipates quickly. Leaves loose lacing.
Nose: Sweet and dried fruits, caramel malt.
Palate: Sweet fruits, caramel malts, yeast. Very mild hop character.
Mouthfeel: Medium-full in body and dry.
 I was worried when I smelled it, but it’s pretty good. The fruity esters add a nice sweetness, but not sticky. There’s a nice tartness in the beginning, similar to what you find in a white grape juice. Very nice brew.
 This would go well with salty pork or a gamey meat like venison.
