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.

Finally able to get my hands on some of this brew and it was well worth the wait. Superb aroma of sweet malts, caramel, and some grain in there too, but all is perfectly balanced saying "drink me". Deep rich colors with a generous head that leaves a clingy lace on the glass, Flavor was sweet off the top transitioning smoothly into a solid malt base and finishing dry and clean. Positivly a world class beer that I will now keep in my regular selection.

Its not often that something with as much aclaim, holds up its end. From the wonderful head when pooured, to the after taste that makes you want more. If this beer was school work, it would definately be on the fridge, or at least in the fridge.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2003 This is probably one of the best dopplebocks in my opinion. Dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma is earthy and grainy. Almost like an oat aroma that is sweet. Great blending of malts, some obviously roasted. Very smooth and drinkable. Slightly sweet and fruity. Another great beer from a great brewer.

I wish I could get this locally. I could see myself drinking a lot of this. I had heard good things about this beer and I have to say that I'm not disappointed.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2004 A really good doppelbock with a depth of flavor and wonderful complexity is, often, the perfect beer. If you want to sit and relax and aren't in for anything too high in alcohol or hops or whatever else, this style is simply great. Among them, this particular beer has to be one of the best. A great, delicious aroma...that is followed up by an equally delicious flavor. I could TRY to put its complexities into words...but you really just need to try this one for yourself to appreciate it. A great beer!

Not nearly as overpowering as it would appear to be from looks alone. Nice aroma and very good taste. Interesting as the taste differs slightly as the beer warms up. Quite spendy though

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2003 A very asthetically pleasing beer. Pours a creamy, tan head and is a dark ruby color. A beautiful lacing was left on the glass. As for flavor, I am not too experienced with dopplebocks, but I can say that I began to like this the more that I drank it. It was very rich and flavorful. A very pleasant sweet, fruity flavor with mild hopiness. A slight roasted/chocolate aftertaste was noticed. Overall I was impressed with this beer.

This kept getting better the more I drank! Dark brown almost ruby in color with a medium off-white head. Excellent aroma of sweetness, malts, and freshly bailed hay. Great malty flavors and very well balanced the alcohol comes through in a very subtle fashion. The best dopplebock I have had to date.

Pours dark brown. Has a roasted sweet aroma. Lots of malted flavors, you get a chocolate coffee taste with a rich smooth finish. This is very good stuff!

The very first Doppelbock I experienced 4 years ago and still the best I've had. This is a very well balanced doppelbock with chocolate malts, sweetness, smokey, and toasty flavor. Overall great beer!
