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.

This one is great. Thanks to BSwatz for giving me a sample. Great depth and a unique flavour that keeps getting better as the beer warms up. There is so much going on here, Iím not sure where to begin. There is some great cherry, citrus, hoppy, roasted malt, flavour that really mellows well together. The nose is all over the place, not very powerful at first, but really works well as you continue. I expected the alcohol to show its face, but it really is well hidden. This is a rich beer, not one I could drink too many of, but very enjoyable. I wish the cost wasnít quite so substantial!!!

Malt, mild alcohol, and wonderful mild roastiness in the aroma. Pours a very dark brown. Tastes of figs in heavy syrup, mild bakers chocolate, and a wonderful malty complexity. Very mild on hop flavor and aroma. Medium on the pallate and slightly dry. Great Stuff!!

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2005 First of all the label rules, and that little plastic goat thing is awesome. Beautiful light brown head and almost completely dark body. Smell Raisons, Figs, Vinous notes, little bit of chocolate, and alcohol. Beautiful full mouth feel. Definitely get some roasty smokyness, a bit of spiceness, some nuts and a dry, bitter, slightly sweet finish. Huge malt presence is evident as well, which I like. Very complex and delicious brew

Draught: Smelled sweet and choclaty, with lots of malt scent. Dark brown pour with medium tan head and good lacing. Tasted like pure malts, and maybe a little nutty. I could not drink this, thought it is not a style I typically enjoy. Still, I was able to appreciate the complexity of the brew. Just not for this hop-head.

Itís a good doppelbock, with a better roastiness to it than other doppels Iíve had. Itís not as sweet a beer as St. Victorious from Victory, but still exceptional. Could have used a bit more sugar and a bit more alcohol, but a good beer nonetheless.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2005 pours a dark brown with largish white head. smells sweet and malty. flavor is similar...sweet at start and kinda fruity like raisons, strong malty character and a little roasty/nutty flavor as well. finishes strong...aroma and flavor gained character as it warmed. a really fine beer.

This beer deserves some praise. Itís a full, rich flavored beer which tastes like malt and bread. Itís not the best beer in the whole wide world, but I like it. And Iím always a sucker for funny labels as well. This oneís got it! Cool.
