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.

Dark teak in color on the pour. Gorgeous beige head rest atop of a extremely viscous almost oil like body. Immersurable quality for the likes of me. One of the very top of the very best beers that I have ever tasted.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2005
Dark color, hints of red. Little light brown head. Sweet caramel, malty and mildly alcoholic aroma, typical for doppelbocks. Medium to full bodied, surprisingly high carbonation. Some nuts in flavor, sweet caramel comes up strongly. Flavor ends with dry bite in tongue, bite coming from hops and carbonation.

Dark brown, almost black colored, little brown lasting head. Aroma is roasted and chocolate with some sweet toffee, nice one. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is roasted with chocolate and brown sugar ending. Strong alcohol coming up also in the end, maybe even too strong. Nice warming winter beer with better aroma than flavor, 6.7% ABV could have been hided little better.

Bottle pored almost pure black with a medium chocolate head that lasted the entire beer with lacing that hangs in sheets! Aroma of roasty malt and coffee. Flavor of roasty malt, coffee and spice. Very, very good and easy drinking.

bottle. pours a deep orangy brown with a tan head and wonderful lacing as I tip the glass. there a re several different malt flavors going on here with the aroma and flavors of roasted malt and some dark fruit. mouthfeel is not quite as full as I expected, but still medium and smooth. the slightly smokey, dry finish is very subtle. a delicious and well balanced beer!

Pours copper-brown with a light tan head. Aromas of caramel malt and hops. Flavors of the same plus a slight bit of smoke. Very well balanced Doppelbock. I really like this beer!

Bottle thanks to imgraz1. Haven’t had this in years. Dark brown with a small tan head. Sweet malty aroma with some caramel and a hint of hops. Nice roasted malt flavor with a bit of dark fruit and caramel. Dries somewhat on the finish.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2011 Bottle. Deep brown ruby tinted beer, with a thick lasting tan head. Very good looking beer. Aroma of rich dark malt, cocoa, fudge and rich cooked malt. There is a little bit of plum, toffee and toasted malts that are perfectly balanced. Flavour is similar, sweet caramel up front leading into a fruit-accented middle before a long, warming, and toasty finish wraps it all up. Lots of chocolate and sweet (but not cloying) malt flavour. Very tasty.

I sampled the 0.33l bottle, which poured a large but loose tan head that quickly disappaited and left little lacing. The beer itself is quite dark, but not opaque; the aroma very malty with light smoke and caramel undertones. The body presents a surprisingly smooth and mellow entry with a hint of fruit and subtle hops. It finishes with a noticable and energizing alcohol flavor and drying aftertaste
