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.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2005 This is a good beer. Itís not one I would drink very often though, itís more of a special occasion type of beer, especially with its higher alcohol content.

Wow what a beer. This is what beer is supposed to be. Dark pur with a nice tan head. A touch a sweetness going down with no aftertaste. Great carmel taste with just the right amout of maltiness. If you try any beer try this one.

Thick, dark beer. Pours nice and with a nice head. Sweet on the tongue and burns just a little going down. Tastes of nuts mix with fruits before going down with a pleasant, chocolate taste. Despite being a solid beer, I expected more from such a celebrated bottle... could have used a higher alcohol percentage.

It has been a while since Iíve had this one, but I can remember that it looked and smelled amazing but didnít really thrill me in its flavour. Iíll have to revisit it and probably rerate it, but in the meantime this is how it stands.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 This double bock is amazing with an aroma of malty molasses and toffee. Very strong flavor with hints of chocolate and caramel.Dark teak in color on the pour. Gorgeous beige head rest atop of a extremely viscous almost oil like body. This is one great beer...update, all true above but I must have had two to many on my 1st rating

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2005 WOW! Poured a very dark Coffee like Colour. The aroma was sweet. The Flavour explodes with Coffee/Caramel/Sugar/Cream/Butter/Cheese/Cream. The Foam stays with you the whole way. The Alcohol Mingles with the Sugar Flavours so Subtley that the cocktail like flavour is seductive. This is one beer that lived up to itís hype. Salud!

Coffee colored, oatmeal head that lingers till the bottom of the glass. Thick on the palate. Roasted malts, black coffee and toffee flavors. Good balance between sweet malts and smoky flavors. A lot of complexity going on. A dopplebock that lives up to its name.

Mmmm, a lot of flavor coming out of this one. People look at me strange when I say cheesecake, but I definately got a rich creamy texture from it. It doesnít pout as dark as you would think, but the body makes up for it, very smooth, barely a bite, and again, a nice rich finish. Another thing that is nice about Celebrator is that the alcohol is not obscene, so you can have a couple.
