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.

Jonb5 (403) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2015
330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip A: Jet black, opaque, small tanned head, not much retention, minimal lacing. S: Prune, grape, oak, dark chocolate, biscuit, burnt caramel and some diacetyl. T: Tawny port was the overriding taste, molasses, dark chocolate lots of roasted barley at the finish, some bitterness. Hint of a boozy burn as it warmed. M: Smooth in, coarse out because of the booze, low carbonation, heavy chewy texture. O: Oozed class, would love to make a loaf of bread with this. I’m also intrigued to know what a year of aging would do to this.

Pours dark brown with big beige head. Sweet smell, reminding raisins and plums, and some toasted malt. Taste is well balanced by sweetness, alcohol and toasted malts. Rich beer with good drinkability.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2015 Bottle from Buxton Brewery Tap House. Pours an opaque dark brown colour with a ruby tint and a medium beige head. Aroma of treacle, sweet malt, liquorice and dark fruit. Taste is sweetish, with caramel, liquorice and raisins, also a bit of smokiness and nuttiness. Soft carbonation and full bodied. Nice liquor-icy, oaky finish. A surprislingly easy drinking and full flavoured beer. Delicious.

Buena cerveza alemana, con una presentación en botella muy curiosa teniendo una cabra de plástico, cerveza que en la boca tiene notas tanto dulces como amargas.

jamestulloch (1730) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle from Cornelius. Deep plum body with a thin off-white head. Steady carbonation. Aroma of treacle, liquorice and dried fruit. Flavour of prune, toffee, rich malt and berries. Medium body with a slick, oily mouthfeel. Lively fizz. A rich, malty Doppelbock - lovely stuff.

VDuquerroux (490) - Airvault, FRANCE - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle, 50cL. Home. Many thanks @Jaghana ! A dark brown beer, nearly black, with a big beige creamy head ; average retention. Roasty aroma, caramel, spices (licorice), fruit (prune, grape), alcohol, coffee. Light sweet, light to medium bitter, sugary warming background. Voluptuous body, smooth texture, average to soft carbonation, dry warming spicy finish. Overall, a fantastic beer : delicous aroma, dangerously drinkable, WOW !

Stuedmaster (285) - 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.

George999 (187) - Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2015
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.
