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.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2009 Bottle. Pours dark brown and clear with a medium sized, light tan head, persistent with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (toffee) with sherry-like notes of plum and grape. Low earthy hop notes. Melanoidin rich aroma. Flavor is a strong malt with fruit notes (plum, prune, dates) and a light, spicy hop finish. Some alcohol is present but not harsh. Very clean lager character. Medium-full body with a clean creaminess. Carbonation is medium-low.

Excellent. Apperance and flavor are close to a sweet stout. Very smooth and easy to drink. Well worth the extra cost. A must try

jonwell (104) - Huntington Beach, California, USA - JUN 30, 2004
Pours almost opaque dark brown in my tulip glass (close as I could get :P). Shines a brilliant red if held up to a light. Head is decent and rocky, but quickly fades to a ring and a few scattered bubbles. Aroma is of dark malts, a bit nutty, slightly alcoholic. Has a bit of a sharp hop essence to it as well. The flavor is very subtle... not a lot jumps out at the beginning. As it warms up, some roasted character comes through in the aroma and flavor, a bit of smoke, rich malts. It remains a bit subtle and subdued for my tastes though. Body is thick and creamy throughout. Very enjoyable, I’m glad I went back to it, as I really didn’t enjoy it the first time I had it. Probly drank it too cold.

fasteddieIX (55) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 26, 2004
Pours a very enticing brown amber, reminiscent of a scotch ale. A large 1’’ cream-colored head gives off an aroma of burnt sugar, nutmeg, and subtle hints of orange peel. The flavor follows through with nutmeg, chocolate, coffee, and tannin. This stuff is super-smooth, making it even more of a pleasure to drink. Superb!

diabel (1621) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JUN 26, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2005 Deep, amber body. Large, Creamy, brownish head. Fair lace. Malty aroma. Ligthly sweet, moderately bitter initial flavour and dito finish. Oily texture and lively mouthfeel. A tupical dark German beer, but joined with pleasing spices. Quite complex.

millerclmb (44) - Boulder, Missouri, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Very large head...that seems to indicate a very foamy and overly carbonated nature. Color is a very dark and appealing redish brown. Despite the bubbly at the top very appealing. Aroma is malty and alcoholic. The taste is creamy and very complex in the maltiness. I taste hints of smoke and nutmeg. There is also a roasty flavor that makes it an increbily smooth and mellor brew. Great dobbelbock but not the best I’ve tasted. It might go well with some cheese or sausage.

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUN 22, 2004
Completely dark black/brown with thick but sparse head. Molasses, banana, cherry, nutmeg, malt, smoke, toffee and chocolate mingle on the nose. Rich with little carbonation, nice creamy sweetness followed by roasted malt and banana...Yum

jasonp (1556) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - JUN 19, 2004
UPDATED: APR 7, 2005 Pours a strikingly beautiful dark brown/mahogany with a thick light brown head. Aroma of smoke, caramel, dark fruits and a touch of alcohol. Taste is totally delicious. Sweet and full bodied with plenty of roated/toastedmalt, caramel, raisins, plums, hops, coffee, smoke and a hint of chocolate. Very complex. Mouthfeel is very full, round and creamy. Great lacing and head retention. Highly recommended.

This beer was recomended by Büch Dich and Sham. The pour was very dark and very thick. Very thin layer of tan head that disapated before I could set the glass down. Very dark with an amber highlight. Smell is of malt and coffee. Some plum overtones came to the nose. Taste was very pleasing. Had a very complex taste to it. A little fruit, some male, a little roasted hops. Some mocha. Very good beer. One of my favorites so far. Would recomend to anybody!
