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.

(Labeled Winter-Bock. Bottle bought in Berlin)
Pours a beautiful dark brown with a nice velvet head. The velvet continues in the palate - this is the softest beer I think I’ve ever drunk. Chocolate and roasted malt in the taste and a pleasant malty aroma. Very good beer.

bottle. I’ve been wanting to try this for a while and only now have I found it. aroma of raisins and brown sugar. Flavour is rather sweet and malty. notes of chocolate. very rich. a nice warming libation for a cool winter day in the desert.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - DEC 25, 2004
mmm... Lots of malts in the nose, some toffee and a slight hint of alcohol. Beautiful deep mahogany brown body with a small tan head. The flavor contains lots of chocolate, tofee, flavor ends in a slight hop bite. Very nice D-bock, but i think i like the Andechser more.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2004
Five beers for a thousand - Beer #996. Bottle at Delirium Cafe, Brussels. Sweet chocolate aroma & some meatyness. Loads of chocolate and sweet malt, coco remains on the tongue and at the back of the throat. Not up to the Andechser or the Weltenburger.

waveman352 (178) - Saratoga Springs, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2004
bottle. Poured a light tan medium head with a caramel chocolate nose. Full bodied with dark brown color. Very sweet and malty flavor. Not very hoppy at all. The taste of alcohol was not present to me in this one and for being a doppelbock it was heavy but not overally heavy. Very smooth in the finish. I have to have this again because it was a little to complex for me to catch all the characteristics during the first time. Great beer.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 14, 2004
Pours a dark brown with a small head. Strong hints of chocolate, caramel and a nutty aftertaste. Finishes as well as it starts. Looks oily in the glass. This is by far the best dopplebock I’ve had to date.

beerandrugby (210) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 14, 2004
Bottle (cool bottle). Poured out a dark dirt brown with a foamy tan head that lasted and laced amazingly well down the whole glass. Smelled malty and sweet. Initially sweet and malty with hints of chocolate and earthyness. Finishes dryerwith a little hopiness to even things out. Well balanced, malty-but not too sweet, just well balanced, i would like a tiny bit more hops, however ii think that would change this beer’s objective in taste. Very good!

Ok, first off, let me say that I bought a single bottle of this, and when I got home, the goat was missing. I’m upset about this. Anyway, this is a beautiful beer. Black as night with a great thick head. Dark fruits, chocolate, and molasses in the yeasty aroma. Very well balanced flavor. Sweet malts, roasted malts, dark chocolate,. As it warms, it picks up some dark fruit flavors and the hops come out a little more. It finishes very well, a little dry, a little bitter, a little sweet and little smooth. This is a very good one. Now, if only I can find that goat ...
