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.

PeterA (340) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 3, 2005
(bottle) Sweet malty aroma. Dark caramel color with light brown head. The flavor matches the aroma, sweet and malty. This is a rich heavy beer, it leaves a slightly bitter aftertaste, and is slightly sticky. A very enjoyable beer.

(bottle). Pours reddish-brown, amber with a thick brown head. Aroma is nutty and earthy. Full, thick, and smooth on the palate, with a sweet fruity taste and a slightly bitter aftertaste. A complex brew overall.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - MAR 31, 2005
Nice thick dark black/brown pour, with a larger brown head. Aromas of almost to many things to name but I will try, maple syrup sweetness, earthiness, nuttiness, light touches of vanilla, cherry, and red grapes without the sourness. Smooth flavos of malt and hops balance nicely,with the cherries, some smokiness, and the syrup present in the lasting aftertaste. A beer that got better with each sip as the glass warmed up a bit.

green (186) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 28, 2005
Cellar Temp. Big malty-sweet aroma. I swear there is a hint of sauerkraut. Beer becomes a thick foam and most flavors come in the finish with molasses, fugde, aromatic malts and some alchohol. Very well balanced. Sort of reminds me of a fudgesicle.

sirchris (42) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2005
Pours dark with a fairly large brownish head. There is a light molassas/syrup aroma. The taste start sweet ends kind of bitter, but even the bitterness has a slight molassas under tone.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Bottle. Dark brown with a thick fluffy beige head. Nose: dark fruits, with figs and dates dominating, coffee, molasses and spices. Tastes like a rich dark rum-soaked mincemeat fruitcake.

JerseySlim (1) - Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2005 does not count
Thick, almost syrupy palate. Pours a nice dark brown color with a tan head. The lacing is quite good. Flavor is outstanding; very smooth, with the smallest bit of sharpness.

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2005
A very pleasant doppelbock. Nice dark amber color, mine had a thin head. Slightly sweet, slightly metallic taste. Good, but I do feel its overrated.

RockYerFaceOff (32) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - MAR 23, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2005 Bottle. Pours a dark brown, almost like cola. Hints of ruby coloring. Has a big, thick creamy tan head. Aroma is intoxicating (inadvertant pun). Very rich aroma full of varying fragrances. Amazing taste. Very dry finish with a bit of smoke. Very rich flavor. Slight metallic tinge to it By far my favorite. Truly a treat to the senses. Itís too bad itís so expensive. Will rerate later on to make sure that my senses arenít numb because itís late.
