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.

Not nearly as overpowering as it would appear to be from looks alone. Nice aroma and very good taste. Interesting as the taste differs slightly as the beer warms up. Quite spendy though

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2003 A very asthetically pleasing beer. Pours a creamy, tan head and is a dark ruby color. A beautiful lacing was left on the glass. As for flavor, I am not too experienced with dopplebocks, but I can say that I began to like this the more that I drank it. It was very rich and flavorful. A very pleasant sweet, fruity flavor with mild hopiness. A slight roasted/chocolate aftertaste was noticed. Overall I was impressed with this beer.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 25, 2003
This kept getting better the more I drank! Dark brown almost ruby in color with a medium off-white head. Excellent aroma of sweetness, malts, and freshly bailed hay. Great malty flavors and very well balanced the alcohol comes through in a very subtle fashion. The best dopplebock I have had to date.

Pours dark brown. Has a roasted sweet aroma. Lots of malted flavors, you get a chocolate coffee taste with a rich smooth finish. This is very good stuff!

whatusay (20) - San Francisco, USA - MAY 22, 2003
The very first Doppelbock I experienced 4 years ago and still the best I've had. This is a very well balanced doppelbock with chocolate malts, sweetness, smokey, and toasty flavor. Overall great beer!

flemdawg (531) - Naples, Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2003 A beer among beers. This stuff was excellent. Very dark with a tan head that lasted for a bit. Detected a sweet aroma with some coffee. Malty and choclatey taste. Maybe some fruits, but I could not be sure. Alchol presesnt and became more evident as it warmed. I dont know if this was perfect, but this is by far the best that I have had. There is a sixer with my name on it at the GG.

boto (1846) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAY 13, 2003
Pours a very dark brown, and almost syrupy. Thick tan head which doesn't linger long. Some roastiness to the nose, but also a very sweet aroma. Very sweet taste. Serious quantities of malt. Lots of chocolate. Some subtle fruitiness. Alcohol somewhat evident, but not the overpowering taste. This is very complex. This is great!

Verne (261) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - MAY 8, 2003
Toasted aroma and a bit sweet smelling. It has a strong toasted malt flavor and hops can be tasted at first but that fades. The alcohol is not hidden sort of like a good scotch the clean alcohol favor is a pleasant part of the flavor. The more I drink the more a hint of currents comes out. This is a clean mellow but extremely complex beer that only gets better the more you drink

Looks chocolatey, and is not my things, Aroma of dark chocolate is nice, with not much else. Taste is UGH! Kind of like tar. Definitely not my kind of beer.
