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 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. Havenít 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

Braudog (6197) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 22, 2005
Black, but thin bodied, with a nice roasty nose. Smooth as silk with an easy alcoholic aspect, almost like a chocolate liquer. Exceptionally balanced mouthfeel and understated for a powerful brew.

I have been waiting to try this for a while. Very dark ruby, burgundy color with a large frithy light tan head. Good lacing. Very malty, cherry aroma. Nice malty, sweet first sip. Med/thick body. Good roasted malty taste. Tasty. Slight alcohol aftertaste. Thin finish. Great beer.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - JAN 19, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2008 Pours dark with a slight red hue. Frothy tan colored head. One sniff and the term "malt-bomb" comes to mind. Dark fruits and candy aromas as well. Creamy mouthfeel with flavors of prunes, raisins, chocolate and somthing sort of burnt tasting.

BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 19, 2005
Pours a reflective dark dark amber brown. Cola coloured head. Not too big. Was warned but didnít have a problem. Taste had a roasted malt flavour carried afterwards by a good balanced presence of raisins, a little hop, skip, jump and awayy...nice in one sitting and still kind of...hrm....smacking of the lips with an enjoyable aftertaste. I beat out however, bought as a single and got the bottle with the goat. boh!

brocker (99) - Salina, Utah, USA - JAN 17, 2005
Pours dark brownish amber color with a nice thick head that dissipates to a lasting thin head. Tastes malty, with a touch of hops. I detect a caramel flavor. Finishes dry. Probably the best bock beer iíve ever had. The goat ornament hanging around the bottle neck is a unique touch.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2005 Medium aroma, light tones of malts and hops. Appearance is very nice. The tan head stays on in a thin layer for some time. The body of the glass is solid brown to black. The flavor has hints of licorice mixed into the roasted malts. A very even body, with slight bitterness on the tail end. A very full mouthfeel, almost feels like you can chew on it while it sits on your tounge. This might not be my alone on an island beer, but it makes the top 5.
