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.

Birra che incanta il naso con aromi di cioccolato e caffè,tracce di frutta secca e noci. Sensazioni granulose di marzapane. Note tostate che accarezzano il palato. Una birra come poche...veramente un piacere sorsata dopo sorsata! Da provare assolutamente almeno una volta nella vita! Secondo me la miglior doppelbock al mondo!

Ragnampiza (219) - ITALY - MAR 16, 2014
330 ml bottle from beer-shop.it, served in a goblet glass . Dark amber, looks brown in the glass, with a nice light beige head. Intense and powerful aroma, with notes of cinnamon, liquorice, smoked meat, roasted malts, cocoa powder and american coffee. Nutty and caramel forward during the taste, rich and velvety without feeling overwhelming. Mild hoppy bitterness on the palate, quite roasty and chocolaty. Slightly warming and alchoolic finish. Soft carbonation, medium body and oily texture. Not a huge fan of doppelbocks, but this one is always great!

0.33 l bottle from Alko. Dark brown colour, nice generous head. Taste has some caramel, not too sweet though. Quite pleasant taste for a strong beer.

stoutnick (386) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle at d.b.a, NYC. Dark; dark brown maybe. Aroma is caramel malts - big similarity with a Belgian dubbel here; nice. Taste is same as aroma, just a little thin; Belgian vibe without being satisfying. Overall, nice beer if you like your malty caramel brews.

djoeye (907) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 13, 2014
Black-brown body, modest beige head, some smooth lacings. Aroma; lots of malts, prune compote, vanilla, dark dough, faint hint of leather, some fruity notes as surface of yellow apples. Taste; caramel malts, chocolate notes, hops under there, prune compote, fruity notes, some bitter hops give reminders now and then, and even a tiny touch from butterscotch in the transition to the aftertaste. To palate nice, well bodied, fine carbonation. Finishes on the sweet malty side, but there is still this soft bitterness along with it. Overall; this is really a nice confectionery! 0.33L bottle 6.7% b@Alko.fi Mooonyo, tasted@home Norway.

Bottle - dark brown pour with decent head. Beer looks great. Nose and taste are very malty and fairly smoky. Soft carbonation. I’m not sure this was a good bottle and would like to give it another shot

ARH (157) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2014 12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. While there’s still a huge fluffy head, the aromas are mostly that of chocolate malt, vanilla, and, generally, chocolate chip cookie dough. As the head recedes, so does the chocolate and dough, but the vanilla sticks around with a fresh baked crusty bread. Some dark fruits, like figs, and grapes, start to come through along with licorice and caramel. It pours a dark, clear caramel color and is topped by a dense, effervescent micro-bubble head that has a very gelatin-like look to it. A decent head remains and it leaves an abundant small-bubbled lace down the glass. The medium leveled malty sweetness is balanced nicely by a light, subtle, toasty bitterness. The medium-full, rich body has a creamy, syrupy texture to it, aided by the light, fizzy, but abundant carbonation. The mouth feel starts with a malty, fig-y, cola flavor. As it warms, caramel, dark chocolate, and raisin start to come through. The final flavor reminded me quite a bit of a bridge mix - even a bit of a roasted nut flavor came through, but I couldn’t tell if it was actually there and hence I made the bridge mix connection, or I made the bridge mix connection, then imposed a roasted nut flavor. The finish is roasted nut, dark chocolate, and toasted caramel. The dark chocolate and toasted bread, in particular, along with a mellow caramel note, linger in the aftertaste.
