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.

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.

With 800+ ratings, itís probably impossible to add anything new that hasnít been said. So, I wonít. Iíll just determine the #ís like I normally would.

A very nice roasted aroma. A deep amber brown color and nice head. A pleasant nutty and roasted flavor to the beer. Goes down very smoothly.

# 200 I wanted this to be special for every hundred I get. Very dark mahogany color, with a beige head that stayed very little thorughout. Slight nutty, caramel, chococolate, piney, hoppy flavors going on. I didnít love this like the 4.17 score it has. Iím sorry but it didnít taste that great, ecspecially for the price.

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.
