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 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.

on tap at Geoffreyís Pub, nice pour in proper glassware. Dark reddish/brown pour with a nice creamy off white head. Roasty malt aroma is all I could pick up over the food the people next to me were eating. Slightly fruity start, maybe some raisin or plum. Nice roasted malt presence in the middle-end. Good complexity, good mouthfeel, excellent beer.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2007 Well, not the most complex beer in the world, but Iíll be damned if it ainít damn delicious. Deep black with a nice foam head rising nearly an inch above my glass (hell yeah!). Aroma of sweet malt, melon, cherries, honey, maybe even some soft cheese. Drinking this beer is like drinking a chocolate malt milkshake. Palate is perfect, never once seeming too thin or too thick. Leaves no nasty aftertaste, no offensive tastes whatsoever (as Iíve found almost every single beer does to some degree). Flavor is robustly malty though never overbearing, and hops are perfectly balanced without even leaving a pinch of bitterness. A+

Poured a dark brown with reddish hues. Beautiful tan head. Amazing aroma and a rich and bold flavor. I must admit Iím new to Doppelbocks, but this one will certainly have me trying many more. Nice.

Excellent representation of a Doppelbock. Not super sweet like some versions. Though it is obviously strong immediately upon tasting!

Funny, the picture of it here was nothing lke the beer I poured from a Grapevine Market 4-pack. Mine was black. Held up to a 100w bulb it was Bing cherry ruby red. Black. The head was tan, thin, and disappeared quickly. Not flat, but not too exciting either. All the great flavors and balance were commendable, but I canít give it the same high marks. Even with the free goat trinket, itís just another stout. Guys, the Emperor is naked.

UnsofistaCat (241) - Garden City, Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2005
Dark brown, with just a tad of a tanner brown light showing. Very nice sniff of sweet malt, vanilla and tobacco. Malty and smoke like taste. I wasnít able to taste the fruity notes. Maybe it was because I decided to poison myself with a cigarette while drinking this brew. Great beer, maybe slightly overrated.

It is to the evening as a mocha is to the morning. Itís dark appearance and chocolate-molasses flavor makes it a wonderful choice to celebrate having a good day.

Smell of molasses, chocolate and coffee. The appearance is really dark, almost like a stout. The taste is just freaking fantastic. Literally a celebration in my mouth. So smooth, so good, it makes every glass a time to celebrate.
