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.

Stuedmaster (270) - Vista, California, USA - JAN 29, 2015
This is a really solid doppelbock, goes down easy and smooth for being 7.2% abv. Dark brown pour with a nice tan head and lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, figs, slightly smokey, very nice. Rich flavor yet very quaffable, tends toward the sweet side but has a well balanced flavor, almost a bit dry. Nice clean mouthfeel, smooth aftertaste. They even give you a little plastic goat as a souvenir. Highly recommended.

Pour from the bottle is dark amber in color, aroma is slightly metallic, taste is malty a little sweet, finish is a watery mouth feel and a hint of a soy sauce on the back of the tongue.

StoutHead (758) - DENMARK - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep red colour with a nice looking one-finger tan head. Aroma of malts and hops. Taste is of malts, caramel, chocolate, spices, nuts and coffee. Sweet but with a bitter and slightly tart finish. Full body and average carbonation. Very interesting and quite good - could do without the tartness though.

Minkenbraeu (12) - GERMANY - JAN 21, 2015
Der Celebrator Doppelbock ist ein dunkles Bier mit einer bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma wird dominiert durch Röstmalznoten. Der süßliche Geschmack verbindet sich perfekt mit den Aromen von Dörrobst. Außerdem besticht das Bier durch eine gewisse Cremigkeit. Ein schönes Bier für kalte Tage.

GlasgowTAD (175) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2015
Pours dark brown with a light brown head that is short-lasting, transforming into a light brown foam ring with some foam bubbles on the top. Aroma is smoke, hop resin, nuts and caramel. Taste is raisins, caramel, accents of smokiness with a slightly bitter and long finish. Full bodied and creamy.

plaugher (212) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 18, 2015
12oz bottle into a chalice. Pours a very dark brown with a slight tan ring of head. Nose is of roasted malts, plum, subtle hoppiness; rich and full bodied with dried fruit sweetness and caramel. Very slight sour note and a bit oaky on the finish. Complex, robust, warming. Simply gorgeous.

Pours dark brown, great sweet malty aroma and taste. Thick and smooth, absolutely one of my favorites.

Aromas are fairly subdued; a hint of sourness. Malts dominate with a touch of nuttiness. Hint of earthiness. Color is very dark brown with a slight light tan head. Taste is somewhat sweet, fairly light bitterness and some mild sourness. Body is light to medium, texture slightly slick, carbonation just a bit below average. Finish shows carbonation and sourness. Overall a decent beer but for my taste not a 4.0 beer. It’s a bit different and somewhat interesting, but there’s just not much that really grabs me.
