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.

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 (3863) - 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 (1996) - 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, I’m just not a doppelbock kind of gal.

Hmm ... great good stuff. I do like those double bocks. Agree with the 3.8+ ratings on texture, taste and nose. For some reason I think I just prefer Salvator by a short hair.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Not what I expected at all. Poured a dark amber, almost opaque. Taste is rich and complex, nutty, smoky and malty. Very similar to a porter. Almost winelike dry fruitiness in the finish. Very clean. Excellent.
