Consecrator Doppelbock – Bell’s Brewery, Comstock, MI.
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.
