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.

btl. you can see how it looks in the photo. taste is very smooth, malty, dark ripe fruit, vanilla bean, burnt caramel, a bit of lemonseed and hop bitterness in the finish. It smells like it tastes for the most part, although the sweetness really stands out in the nose of this brew. not to say this beer is overly sweet, itís a perfect doppel bock. the best iíve had be cause itís well balanced and not too sweet. very nice, creamy mouthfeel too.

12 oz. bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar. Pourd deep, dark brown with bubbly head that lasted for a while. Didnít leave much lacing though. Aromas were strong caramel and yeast. Flavors were a little nutty and more delicious maltiness. Roasty Smokey finish. Very yummy beer.

Great beer, so much flavor but still balanced. Pretty amazing they can cram all of those different flavors into one bottle and still make it taste so smooth and drinkable.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2006 Looks like cola. Coffee taste. Smooth. Pretty color. Yummy! Itís a dark dark brown color with a deep dark fruit aroma. Super smooth and very easy to drink.

Pours a nice reddish brown color. The smell is very much like the taste. Malty, nutty, and fruity. Thereís a lot going on in this little beer. Itís all very well put together though, so Iím a fan. Goes down well and tastes great this is a good choice.

Lots of caramel comes through in this...and a light alcohol taste. Sweet malt. Complex. I highly recommend this brew.

There is nothing not good about this beer. Highly quaffable and tasty, this beer is extremely complex with a number of nutty, caramel-ly, and overall excellenty tastes. It is somewhat smoky in the aftertaste, with a light taste of alcohol...but only what would be expected of a big beer. This is a great beer--probably the best Iíve ever had. Itís highly recommended

Tremendous and one worth re-visiting often. Deep brownish crimson, thick tan creamy head. The nose held rich interwoven notes of sweet bread, fig, raisin, and roasted chocolate malt, with additional tones of toffee brittle and molasses. Ultra smooth dark sweet malt flavors lead right off the bat, but quickly get accompanied by light smokey tones and German hop flair. Just perfect balance. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, bittersweet malty finish. At 4.17 or so, it still may be underrated in my book. A great change of pace from the "Big" IPA, Stout, Barley Wine theme ....
