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 from Hippo Beers, Glasgow. Ruby with a cream head. The flavour is fruity, spicy with raisins, port, liquorice. Very drinkable and tasty.

HenriqueBraga (93) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - JAN 11, 2015
Marrom, castanho claro. Bom formação e estabilidade de espuma. Aromas de toffee, tosta caramelizada, malte, leve fruta seca. Corpo médio-alto. No sabor o caramelo é mais intenso, torrado. Amargor baixo, aftertaste seco, aquecedor e doce. Melhor cerveja alemã que já degustei.

nellycale (205) - Caledonia, Minnesota, USA - JAN 5, 2015
From Bottle. Pours a dark brown almost purplish hue with a light beige head. Decent lacing. Aroma of chocolate, dark bread, nuts, burnt toffee, leather. Taste is dark and rich with dark fruit, fig, clove, dark bread, smoked tobacco, and some hop bitterness tingling on my tongue. Medium mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Finishes dry, nutty, dark chocolate, and dark malt that is lasting. Not usually a fan of malty beers, but this is definitely an exception. It's almost like a German Quad. Just as wonderful as it is tasty! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown colour, beige head. Aroma of bread, plums, raisins, clove. Taste is light to medium sweet. Medium body, quite oily texture, soft carbonation. It has a strong flavour of clove and dried fruits. Very good, my 700 rating :)

Deep brown pour with slight burgundy hue to it. Light tan head. Aromas of dark fruits, slight coffee, caramel. Taste is sweet with a slight barleywine finish but cleans up dry. Medium body and light carb. Drinks pretty easy.
