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.

Strangely enough, this was one of the first ’real’ beers I ever tasted. I guess I was lucky back then to try one of the best there is. Pours richly into the glass, with a latte colored head. I love watching the flurry of nearly microscopic bubbles surge slowly to the top. A rich aroma, coffee, malt. It bites back a bit as you drink. Excellent.

11.2oz Bottle: Pours dark black with a tan head. Very rich taste with a bitter aftertaste that lasts long after the beer is gone. Overall a very good dopplebock, but not my style of beer.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2004
A color as black as night, and a toasty tan head. Strong and seductive aromatics: sweet and candyish, with notes of toffee, anise, and cocoa, and a slightly burnt character that perhaps derives from the higher alcohol. Taste is huge with malt, highly warming (note the ABV), full, rich, and delicious. A perfect aperitif beer. Three things ring above all else: malt, coffee, and caramel. Solid, bold, and loaded with coffeeish flavor. One of the world’s greatest brews.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 13, 2004
Dark ruby colour with a frothy tan coloured head. Very nice chocolate, red wine, toffee, dark fruits, rum, and light cherry aroma. Dark chocolate bitter flavour dominates, along with rum and slight toffee. Flavour is a letdown after the aroma. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel, but lightly fizzy.

presario (4902) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 11, 2004
UPDATED: APR 8, 2006 Bottle. Head is not as creamy as advertised. Very dark brown but not opaque. Rich delicious thick malt and spicy hop aroma. Smokey start to the flavour, followed by long roast, alcohol and fruit notes. Nice balanced finish of hop bitterness and dry roasted notes.

Goblincat (399) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - SEP 11, 2004
On tap. Pours deep brown with a tan head. Toasted malt aroma. Tastes of a complex mix of malts, a little prunes, and a touch of dark chocolate. Very good... Will try again.

Tap. Definately good. Deep black opaque. Malty aroma with roasted grain and coffee notes. Taste is malty, roasted grains and a suprisingly hoppy finish. Very good.

Not a huge doppelbock fan but this is definitely the best. Has a very sweet yet strong aroma. Pours very dark with a good sized, brown head that lasts a while. Taste is very smooth with hints of chocolate and almost a bark taste. Finish is smooth with some alcohol present but leaves a light, malty aftertaste.

Finally, I have been lookin for a while but just couldnt find it for some reason. Bad timing I guess. Well, it is well worth the wait. Oh so smooth and delicious. Deep dark brown. Buttery malty aroma and taste. I love this beer. Such a great creamy mouthfeel. Definitly gotta get more of this.

igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 1, 2004
Deep red with little carbonation. The head was brown and diminished quickly, but the lace was resilient and long lasting. The smell was of malt and raisins. The taste was well balanced and complex: sweet like caramel and cherries, yet with a dry finish. The mouth feel was exceptional: a long lasting effervescence that rolls off the back of the tongue, and is smooth.
