Day 15 (#30Beers30Days)

Deep flavor, yo!

I spent more time than normal trying to figure out which of the many pubs in my ‘hood I’d visit for day 15.  I knew I needed to get a bock style beer under my belt.  When in doubt…I always go to the Midway Pub.  They have a ridiculous list of brews. When I ordered, they were playing A Tribe Called Quest’s ‘Low End Theory’ in the background.  The perfect soundtrack for today’s lesson with Bell’s Consecrator Dopplebock (8%ABV).

This Dopplebock is DEEP! Amber brown color, minimal head, and no really detectable aroma other than malt. I let it warm up a bit, and the Consecrator became sweet and sticky. Toffee and caramel notes expanded across its complex profile.  It’s heavy bodied with a chewy mouthfeel and a lingering malty aftertaste. Quite lovely. This is my first from the bock family which are generally dark, rich, and not overly sweet. Bell’s Consecrator is on point.

If you want a thick, dark, malty brew, check this Doppelbock out. Bell’s Consecrator gets the easy A!!
