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.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 9, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2007 Beautiful mahoghany brown with fine, swirling light tan lacing. Complex malt aromas and flavors (lots of raisins, dates, walnuts and milk chocolate), and these complexities are accentuated by a very balanced sweetness. Some roastiness makes a showing towards the end of the sip. Excellent overall, with a finish that is somehow both dry and pleasantly sweet.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2007 This one rates in the "classic" pages in my book. They have the history and knowledge to do it right and they do. Please sir, may I have another?

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 6, 2002
Dark ruby with a nice creamy tan head. Aroma is huge, with sweet malts, fruit, and a little roasted malt, too. Flavor was equally big - raisin, brown sugar, molasses, and hints of chocolate. Feels really full in the mouth, and the flavor sticks around for a while, too.

DankbrewedDank (162) - East Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 29, 2002
Very malty with a nice tang, Many different tastes swilled about my mouth. I detected hints of raisens, brown sugar, nuts, and browned peaches all topped off by plenty of malt.

fraternie (824) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 28, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2003 I concur. This one really knocked my socks off. Almost perfect--explosion of flavors, chocolate, fruit, roasted and rich. The finish drys out a bit, but a world class beer overall.

Frank (2888) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2002
UPDATED: APR 12, 2005 Strong and malty. Initial sweet molasses flavor gives way to a wonderfully complex middle with hints of nuts, raisins, caramel, and dark chocolate. Rich mouthfeel with a touch of warmth from the alcohol in the throat. Finishes clean with a good dose of hops. Deep, almost-black ruby color and appetizing tan head. An exceptional beer by any standard. Comes with a cool goat keychain thing for no apparent reason.
