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.

Pours a lush brown with amber highlights. Nice head and spotty lace. Aroma is molasses and a touch of plum, with some definite red wine in their as well. Flavor is a touch of smoke, candy, chocolate, and a bit of java. Palate flows smoothly. A bit pricey, but worth it. Nice beer.

UNCCTF (512) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - JUN 9, 2004
Bottled. Poured a dark, dark brown with very little head. Flavor is slightly bitter with a somewhat warming aftertaste. This is good, but I have to say I think this is a little bit overrated.

Bottled. Poured into snifter, it gave generous head which slowly ceased as the drink went on...looks coal black on the table, blood red when held to the light, some lace, lightly carbonated. A massive Munich malt-type nose, a bit of darker roasty or chocolate in the background. Full bodied brew that drinks like velvet. Flavor is full of melanoidins...carmelized malt. It lingers and lingers a bit more. If there are hops in here, I canít find them beneath the mountains of malt. Rich beer, extravegant on the malt. A lager I can love.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2007 After many, many tastings and ratings of this here brew. My score will remain the same. This is the beer that , well, started me drinking something other than BMC. However, I find it much less tastey then on tap.

Pours like oil, deep and black. Aroma is like espresso. Flavor is a coffee,toffee and chocolate mix. Very nice and probably one of the best of its kind.

zach8270 (3794) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 3, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [bottle] Pours a deep ruby red with a very thick tan head that left beautiful lacing all the way down the glass. Rich and full aroma, mainly sweet malts with a slight soapy floral hint underneath. Roasted malt flavor at the start that goes sweet in the middle and gives way to a nice roasted/bitter coffee finish. Hops abounded throughout the entire body. The head was wonderfully creamy and silky and combined wonderfully with the body. [[200th Rating]]

sethdude (704) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 1, 2004
Pours a nearly black reddish/brown color, great head that thins out and leaves great lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel, and chocolate, with a faint hop spice. Flavor is very malty initially, almost a burned malt character, followed by a very sweet middle, then a nice, long bitter finish. Grassy hops finish the long flavor, and what an interesting ride this was! Very good. Much better than Salvator.

shadey (1977) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 29, 2004
UPDATED: APR 12, 2005 Delicious. Dark dark brown with a hint of red in the color. Head is a very smooth creamy white. Aroma is huge. Smells like smoked and salted meat . Sweet and Complex flavor. Smokey, huge malt, some sourness, some saltyness. Rich and super smooth. with no lasting after taste. A little sweetness. Amazingly easy to drink and immensely enjoyable. This is world class.

HopsformyHips (113) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - MAY 28, 2004
A very pretty beer, with big head and heavy lacing. Clear deep mahogony pour. Aroma has lots of malt, roasted coffee and a slight toffee twinge. The Palate was thick and smooth. Little to no hops present. Strong initial taste with all the sweet roasty malts yet a weak burnt finish. Nice alcohol present to help carry the sweetness of the malts through the tounge. This one improves as it warms. Great amongst the doppelbocks, Iím just not a doppelbock kind of gal.
