COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Celebrator has a creamy head of tight bubbles contrasting beautifully with its profound dark robe. It is full-bodied and velvety from half a year’s aging. Although it is strong, it is not overpowering. There is a wonderful and complex balance between the various malts, the alcohol and the subtle hops. A complex fruitiness of roasted malt and whole hop flowers make Celebrator great as a party drink with friends and family at celebrations. Despite its richness, it has a faintly smoky dryness in the finish.

the description is apt. It is a bit bitter/mildly tart but has roasted malt flavor and aroma throughout. Very dry finish. Good body. Not a bad brew.

Deep brown color, small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, dried fruits, caramel and chocolate. Sweet taste has similar notes with hint of smoked wood in gently bitter roasty finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Delicious beer.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Taste carmel, chocolate, fruity. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thick rich taste, smooth malty caramel finish, thin tan head, very very good, worth the trip just for this beer.  At Hofbrauhaus in Helen GA.

Alengrin (243) - BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2014
Famous Bavarian Doppelbock, one of the references in its style. Dark brown beer with a creamy, tanned, dense and mousse-like head; aroma invitingly malty with appealing notes of dark fruits and gentle spicy yeast; taste chocolatey and caramelly but very purely malty, the fruitiness and spiciness from the aroma dancing on top of it, full and creamy palate, finish - unexpectedly - quite serious and perfectly hopped to balance out the frivolity from the onset with just enough bitter. Masterpiece of balance, in my opinion.

EvilCat (58) - FRANCE - JUL 24, 2014
Bouteille. La Cervoise 91. Robe marron profond, mousse beige crémeuse. Nez de malt noir et torréfié avec une dominante fruitée sur le pruneau. En bouche c’est suave et caressant. De belles notes de sucre brun, de malt grillé, de café et toujours ce pruneau avec ses notes de fruit noir confit légèrement acide. Une doppelbock incoutournable.

Red/brown with a thin beige head. Aroma is sweet with chocolate and caramel. Taste has chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, smooth hop bitterness, slight alcohol. Medium body, soft carbonation, smooth mouth feel. After taste is chocolatey and herbal bitter.
Paired this to a thick ham, cheese and leek crepe. Great combo!
