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.

pours dark in color, smells like coffee and (dont hate me for saying it)- guinness x-stout. rich, malty tasting with a hint of a coffee flavor. very smooth drinking, smokey type finish. very malty, not very hoppy. certainly a best in style. great brew.

Poured a dark brown orange. Aroma was caramel and nut/fruit. The taste is very smooth with some burn and a taste of licorce and currant, toffee and caramel, with an aftertaste that stays.

Very tasty beer, actually it was the first beer I had bought after finding this website, and was the beer that pushed me toward "the better beer". Before this it was all bud, miller,etc. But thanks to RB I have found the WAY! Anyway after the pour, it left a nice creamy head. Itís color seemed to be of dark caramel as did a the taste. Which was also overwhelmed with chocolate, malt, and lighter notes of fruit and nuts. Overall I was more than impressed with this DB, will go back to the pond this one came from. And have already used it to sway a fellow drinker to trying out the finer beers of the world with me. Cheers to Ayinger on this beer!

this dopplebock is the finest iíve had. coffee, fruits and smoke roll around in your mouth and bombard your tastebuds. get as much of this as you can its worth any price.

This is a hearty doppelbock! Carmel, chocolate, toffee, and toasted nuttiness seem to be a worthy description of the flavors. Chewy maltiness. Rich and satisfying. A good one!

deep ruby brown with a nice appropriate head. malty caramel nose with no real hops presence. rich caramel body, sorta earthy. i feel like iím drinking liquid alcoholic caramel! smooth body with a perfect finish. seems perhaps a little thin though. great beer!

Dark in color with a good head. It had a sweet smell. The taste was sweet and smooth with many different flavors coming at you.

what can I say, other than this canít be any smoother, tastier or more clean for a DB. Amazing.

Smooth and good are th best ways to describe this beer. Pootie Tang-licious and owl-filled are bad ways to describe it (my fridge is owl-free, thank you!).

This is my favorite Doppel. This thing pours like creek sludge. THICK. Smells wonderful. Instead of the usual soy of most doppelís this one is more cloyingly sweet. Incredibly sweet. And in this instance cloying is good because it lingers. Nice head that dissipates slowly. I think this one has a lovely saaz hop backgroud that really distinguishes it from other Doppelís. The malt also has an interesting burnt rubber quality to its nose that subtly carries over to its palate. Leaves me satisfied every time....if I didnít just eat, like eating potato dumplings its so thick. G-rat
