Celebrator has a creamy head of tight bubbles contrasting beautifully with its profound dark robe. It is full-bodied and velvety from half a yearís 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.

Chestnut brown pour with a fluffy tan head and very good lacing. Very sweet aroma with roasted/crystal malt overtones. Interesting combination of maltiness, fruit, and rummy alcohol in the flavor. Surprisingly clean and dry finish with some peppery spice. I really liked this beer and would gladly serve it to other beer geeks.

Aroma is malty, fruity, rum, brown sugar, mollasses.
Flavor is fruity, raisin, prune, burnt sugar. nicely balanced bitter/sweet finish.

Dark pour, fluffy head.Soft malty smell, has a nice hop flavor to it and almost a thickness in its taste. It does have a dryness to the finish.

ChrisPants (317) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2004
Pours dark brown/amber with admirable head. Smooth, caramelly, nice quiet hops, gentle palate, slight maltiness. very light coffee aroma. Aftertaste is somewhat sour and boozy. A very good beer, and Iíd definitely try it again, but I wasnít as wowed as the rating numbers tell me I ought to be.

Lot of expectations on this one, but it couldnt quiet fill them. I like Andechsers better. This has a nice nuanced long lasting flavour. Thanks to Dixen for lettin me sample it

Poured brown with a small cream colored head. Aroma was malty and fruity. Sweet, brown sugar, raisins, prunes, and figs. Flavor continued with the fruits and added mild roastedness, light smoke, and alcohol. Light to medium bodied.

(Labeled Winter-Bock. Bottle bought in Berlin)
Pours a beautiful dark brown with a nice velvet head. The velvet continues in the palate - this is the softest beer I think Iíve ever drunk. Chocolate and roasted malt in the taste and a pleasant malty aroma. Very good beer.

bottle. Iíve been wanting to try this for a while and only now have I found it. aroma of raisins and brown sugar. Flavour is rather sweet and malty. notes of chocolate. very rich. a nice warming libation for a cool winter day in the desert.
