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.

Its not easy finding a top 50 beer in North Florida, so I was grateful to find this one. Beers with ’bock’ in the name usually disagree with me so I was also a bit hesitant, but I couldn’t wait any longer to try it.. Clear dark brown pour with a huge creamy tan head that stayed for a while and laced all the way down. Beautiful. Aroma of sweet malts. Flavor as deep and complex as the best belgian strong ales, sweet, thick, chewy, and perfectly balanced with the bitter finish. Oh, man this is wonderful. So smooth and delicious.. You can bet I’ll be buying more of these. Dark rum, dark fruits, molasses, chocolate, nice hoppy character. Very full body of tasty malts. the flavors just keep coming.. Love it!

Good, solid doppelbock. I had my expectations set a little higher from reading the reviews before going into the tasting. Started off beautifully - poured thick with a deep brown color and small off-white head. Smell was as expected. Tasted smokey, almost like the smell of a wood-burning oven; chargrilled. Accents of pepper and black licorice. Descent grainy, chocolatey, roasted malts. I kept waiting for this beer to come full-circle and wow me, but it seemed to come up just short from possessing the sort of complexity you look for in a doppelbock. That being said, it was a damn good doppelbock, just not the best.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Chestnut brown pour with a fluffy tan head and very good lacing. Very sweet aroma with roasted/crystal malt overtones. Interesting combination of maltiness, fruit, and rummy alcohol in the flavor. Surprisingly clean and dry finish with some peppery spice. I really liked this beer and would gladly serve it to other beer geeks.

Padron4KM (799) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JAN 1, 2005
11.3 oz bottle. This bottle is over 1-1/2 years old. not quite sure on the age, but it was bought as a single out of a six pack, and these come in 4 packs now.
Pours out dark reddish brown with a 1", quickly disapating head. Head settles to a thin cap. alcohol visible floating on top.
Aroma is malty, fruity, rum, brown sugar, mollasses.
Flavor is fruity, raisin, prune, burnt sugar. nicely balanced bitter/sweet finish.

Dark pour, fluffy head.Soft malty smell, has a nice hop flavor to it and almost a thickness in its taste. It does have a dryness to the finish.

ChrisPants (317) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2004
Pours dark brown/amber with admirable head. Smooth, caramelly, nice quiet hops, gentle palate, slight maltiness. very light coffee aroma. Aftertaste is somewhat sour and boozy. A very good beer, and I’d definitely try it again, but I wasn’t as wowed as the rating numbers tell me I ought to be.

Lot of expectations on this one, but it couldnt quiet fill them. I like Andechsers better. This has a nice nuanced long lasting flavour. Thanks to Dixen for lettin me sample it

Poured brown with a small cream colored head. Aroma was malty and fruity. Sweet, brown sugar, raisins, prunes, and figs. Flavor continued with the fruits and added mild roastedness, light smoke, and alcohol. Light to medium bodied.
