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.

Bottle bbe 06/2016. Roasty, malty, caramelly, nutty (hazelnut, walnut) aromas and taste with a hint of honey. Wow! This one is really surprising. I recently had a Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar and the Celebrator seems to be like a role model beyond reach. Totally naturally feeling aroma and taste, not too sweet, nicely carbonated and a nice slick but slightly creamy mouthfeel. Compared to other Doppelbocks I had the Celebrator is subtle in sweetness making it more balanced with the roasty aroma/taste. Just great!

Bijl (63) - NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2016
Donker amber/bruine Doppelbock. Volle cremekleurige schuimkraag. Deze zakt snel weg en plakt wat suikerig langs de rand. Aroma’s: Rozijnen, rijp fruit, gebrand, zoetige en wat alcoholisch. De smaak is zoet, karamel achtig. Chocolade, bruine suiker en geroosterde mouten. Veel smaak voor een bier met 4 ingrediënten. Vol en romig, medium koolzuur. Zoet gaar over in een nabittertje. De alcohol blijft mooi op de achtergrond. Een heerlijk bier!

Sweet aroma, slight chocolate, honey and nuts. Pours dark brown with finger thick layer of creamy foam. Sweet taste, light body, silky texture, mild carbonation. Another doppelbock favourite and almost perfect beer.
