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.

Rocky head that bubbles away. Deep earthy brown in color. The malts shoot straight up your nose when you take a whiff of the beer. A velvety smoothness with hints of tiny grains is left on my palate. It warms my throat as it goes down. The malts seem smoky or roasty. The hops in this beer are so slight you almost have to imagine that they are there. A great beer, definitely my favorite doppelbock yet.

Great pour from the bottle with a nice head to boot. Wonderful spice and roasted aroma and the flavor to match. Finish is very smooth. One of my new favorites.

this is an excelent doppelbock. pours almost as dark as a stout with nice light tan head that dissipates to just cover the beer. the malt flavor is huge and very complex. has a nutty flavor to it, with just a little bit of hop kick

Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 1, 2003
Had to drop the $ when I found this one today. I am impressed. This one pours with a light tan head and an appealing aroma of bread and raisins. The body is consistent and thick, with toffee, bread, and raisin flavors dominating the palate. Very sweet aftertaste finishes with a touch of bitterness. Rich, complex, and every bit worthy of its impressive ratebeer score. If there is a heaven, and it has beer on tap, Celebrator Doppelbock is among the choices.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 28, 2003
Deep brown with a full body. Bread and caramel aromas. Very rich with chocolate and dark roasted malt flavors. Wonderfully balanced. You cannot go wrong with this one. Nectar for the beer gods.

GearHead (32) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2003
The pour was smooth and thick. A very nice body and color (dark and very opaque). Very rich aroma of carmel, coffee biterness. First taste was great but the last ones were even better. I probably should have waited a little longer on the warmup, but an outstanding finish. Great beer for a cold day in the company of good friends. The creamy warmth leaves you wanting more.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2005 I was going to wait to rate this until I had another few so I could pick up more things about the beer, but I can always add more description later. May I say, “Wow.” Rich and undeniably creamy in taste and feel. Awesome color, smells like toffee (and being American, from the land of the free and the home of where people never eat toffee, me picking up on a toffee smell is suprising and appreciated!). Medium weight in the mouth. Caramel, coffee, toffee, bread, and malt. Not a bitter swallow; pleasant aftertaste. So smooth. Alcohol is warming but not overpowering. I could drink one after another. Good, good, good. Next time around, I will pay more attention to flavors. This time around, I was simply enjoying. Prost!

This is FANTASTIC! Excellent all around - rich creamy head, dark brown, slightly ruby color. Very well rounded flavor, rich and smooth - mild caramel tones, lightly smoky. What else can I say that hasn't already been said! A must-try beer if there ever was one.

desurfer (1211) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2003 This was wonderful! Nearly opaque ruby color, tan creamy head which dissipated rather quick and left light lacing on the glass. Slight roasted aroma. Taste is excellent, roasted malt with hints of chocolate and caramel. Very smooth on the palate, and the alcohol content is well-masked. Finishes dry and smoky. An outstanding beer.
