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.

Bottle. Pours deep brown/burgundy, with a huge head and great lacing. Aroma of malt, toffee, slight peat, cognac, and even corn flakes. Tastes malty, with caramel, port, peat, fruit, and a slightly sweet finish. As it warmed it gained complexity. A wonderful brew, and very deserving of a top 50 slot on RB.

Tried at an Old Chicago and thought it one of the best on their menu. Malty. Chocolate. Very good.

Pours a deep red color, pretty much black, with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with almost a dark fruity sweetness to it. This beer starts sweet and malty and ends with a chocolate bitter aftertaste. In my opinion the bitterness at the end is a little too strong.. Still a great brew though.

Has a rich and creamy texture with a hint of vanilla and a nice chocolatey aftertaste. A bit overrated.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2006 Bottle, rerate

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 can’t 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.
