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.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2004 I've sampled this one numerous times. It used to leave me feeling "underwhelmed". The flavors are subtle and tend to come together very late... near the last sip. Strong cola elements have also interfered with my ability to completely fall in love with this beer. However, after repeated samples and finally finding the temperature that works best with it, I'm growing increasingly fond of this complex but subtle and delicate brew.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 12, 2003
One hell of a double bock. Full-bodied, dark brown, malty with excellent aroma and flavor. Hints of chocolate, carmel, and molasses with a toasted flavor in there somewhere.

Oh wow this is good. Creamy with a bite. Full-bodied and complex. Toasty with molasses and a bitter finish. This is a great beer.

CEZ (397) - Milano, ITALY - JUL 10, 2003
Brown body, great beige head. Caramel, smoked, molasses aroma. But the best part is the taste, rich in toasted malt and toffee, but yet smooth and balanced. Medium/full body. Persistent, delicious bitter finish.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUL 2, 2003
Dark colored beer with a proper tan head. Sweet malty, powerful aroma. A really great smelling brew. What an outstanding beer. Complex, sweet malty flavor. A complex beer that meshes the malt and hops very well

TChrome (1409) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2003
Wow!!! Obviously the standard by which all doppelbocks will be measured. What a delight to smell. Dominant aroma is malt in many layer with many interpretations. Included are bread, molasses, coffee, and alcohol, oh and dont forget the roasted nuts. Beer pours up beautiful creamy light brown head which is partially retained. There is some light lacing. Color of beer is ruby-brown. Flavor is wonderful and complex. Layer after layer of sweet malt and just a touch of chewiness. This is an experience worth repeating over and over.

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2011 Slightly less than dark black. Brown head. Stuffy and musty stale roasted wood aroma. Thick murky burnt campfire smoke and bourbon are the most prominent flavors.
