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.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2005 Cinnamon-raisin-smoky-malt taste. A superbly balanced mix of flavors. Has a creamy mouthfell. Deep wet palate that finshes well. [$9.99/4pk]

Smoke burned aroma of malts. Poured black with a tan head that dissipated. Had a vanilla taste to it. Was dry on the palate for the most part but a couple of times throughout the beer it seemed watered downed. Good beer though.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2005
Dark, dark brown... nearly black with tan head. Aroma is sweet, a bit bitter, and malty. Malts are brown sugar sweet and roasted. Some sour malt flavors are first plesent. Subtle roasted malts mix nicely with the sourness and there is a creamy feel and finish. Also, fruity and sour bitterness.

Very nice complexity - a mix of good malt, smooth presentation, and a spice / fruit infusion, topped of by a signature doppelbock flavor.

Pretty much perfection as far as Doppelbocks go. This brew is nice and creamy. For tastes you get some nice syrup and molasses flavors along with a little bit of coco. Head is nice and creamy as well. Good lacing rings are visible around my glass. One damn good beer.

How much beer could I drink if I could drink beer all the time? Well, if it were this beer, I’d sure try to drink beer all the time. If I could. This is lovely. Sweet and malty without being cloying so. Sweet aroma.

macguy (146) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2005
This is a big tasty beer. It pours a nice dark brown with a long lasting cream colored head and some pretty amazing lacing. The beer has a slightly sweet taste and a nice bitter finish.

PeterA (340) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 3, 2005
(bottle) Sweet malty aroma. Dark caramel color with light brown head. The flavor matches the aroma, sweet and malty. This is a rich heavy beer, it leaves a slightly bitter aftertaste, and is slightly sticky. A very enjoyable beer.

(bottle). Pours reddish-brown, amber with a thick brown head. Aroma is nutty and earthy. Full, thick, and smooth on the palate, with a sweet fruity taste and a slightly bitter aftertaste. A complex brew overall.
