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.

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 beerís 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. Iím 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 ...

You have to love the goat toy trinkets around the neck of the bottles. I should find some use for them, as my collection is growing quite large. This pours of a pitch-black color with a tall bubbly beige head that leaved sheets of lacing around the glass that stick for a while. Very full and complex aroma is rising from the glass with roasted malts, dark chocolate mixing around with a strong ripe dark fruit scent. The taste starts of with a roasted smoky flavor that is back by fruits, caramel and chocolate. Behind that is a touch of coffee and a slightly bittering finish that completes this wonderful flavor. Excellent mouth feel as this is full, creamy and smooth not too much more can be asked from a brew like this. Very good drinkability as its complex flavor and scent keep you coming back for more to discover new elements in it. Highly recommended to all and hey if you donít like it you get a neat goat for a parting gift.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2005 Dark brown body with a high, mostly lasting head. Huge concentrated aromas, like an eisbock. Woody, toasty, savory, slightly spicy... Similar flavors, notes of oak, vanilla, molasses... Beautiful creamy palate. Awesome.

Pours deep brown with a beautiful beige head. Malty aroma with hints of dark fruit. Incredible malt taste with a bit of tongue-prickling carbonation. Chocolatey notes in the middle. Very nice.

I donít get it. Iíve bought this a few times over the last few years. This shit is avg. in looks,mildly roasty toasty in taste and character and way overpriced = lame. Iíll take Salvator dopple or Saxer Jack Frost ANY day over this over rated mediocre false god of beerdom. BLAH!

Nice deep amber body with a moderate beige head. Malty rich aroma with lots of caramel and a hint of roastiness and nuts. Flavor is silky smooth with lots of caramel malts and a hint of fruit in the background. Finish is semi-dry and slightly sweet. Great doppelbock despite the low alcohol.
