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.

Armoa was standard bock with a hit of sweetness. Appearance was brownish with thick white/tan head. The flavor was excelent with a bit of bitter aftertaste that was perfect. Overall this is a top of the crop dopplebock. If only shiner could come up with something similar.

Lovely creamy head on this one. I got hits of licorice and caramel with a slight touch of smokiness. Felt bubbly against the tongue but not distractingly. Peppery finish lingered on pleasantly afterwards. Very elegant beer. I think I’ll need to try a few more.

Okay, I’ll admit this beer is pretty good, but the best doppelbock available? Not in my book. A little too bitter, and less flavorful than others. Still a solid offering by Ayinger, but certainly overrated.

this beer is smooth, dark, and just plain good. Strong malty flavor dark and rich -- finishes slightly sweet and wanting more.

Zeswaft (1641) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 1, 2005
Pours dark brown with about a half inch of tan head. Has a slightly chocolatey aroma. Mouthfeel is a little thick. Not as much taste as I was expecting. It kind of tastes like a watered down imperial stout. Malty and some subtle hops. Pretty good but not one of the best beers in the world, in my opinion. But what do I know?

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2006 Malty, creamy, full bodied, and velvety. slightly smoky dryness in the finish. Re-rate now that I know a little more about these things. Very nice and well balanced beer. Reminds me of fresh bread. Yeast is apparent but the malt and complexity take over.

My first Doppelbock experience -- how could anything else compare. A nice creamy head on an almost black body. Liquid chocolate. Can taste the malt, but it is not overpowering. Hints of vanilla on the nose with a hint of spice. Clean, dry, crisp finish. My first love. . .I will never forget you.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2007 pours good and dark with a nice foamy off-white head, aroma of citrus, nutty, and of slightly roasted malts, good taste same as the aroma, no hidden surprises, a damn good beer.

Pours deep brown with a small off white head. Malty nutty aroma. Very full nutty, malty taste as well. Dark fruit taste as well. Lingering aftertaste. Well made.
