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.

Got in a trade with a friend. It was well worth the two bottles of old horizontal I traded her. The intial smell was amazing. Huge maltly accents with all sorts of different parts, from choclates and coffees to fruits like raisons and plums. Definitely a smoky flavor as the description claims. I really enjoyed this beer.

Very thin head, but some bubbling to keep your interest on the deep, dark liquid. A bready, malty aroma. Bit this just doesn't live up to the fantastic image on the bottle. Luckily its flavor and aroma do not conjure up thoughts of horny goats rubbing my brew, it is in fact quite mild, a little licorice present. It is smooth, you could drink a lot of it and get really messed up quickly if you didn't watch yourself, but I do prefer bolder flavors in my Doppels. Plastic Goat Bonus Points Awarded!

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.

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.

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
