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.

Pours very dark brown with ample, tan head. I smell loads of sweet malt with maybe some raisins or figs in the far background. First sip..this is much smoother than I had expected. Malty, rich with a great mouthfeel and a slightly bitter and wonderful dry finish. Although I am not a big doppelbock drinker, I have had quite a few and this simply is the summit of the style.

This is cool because it comes with a Christmas ornament. Nifty! Nice and malty with a nice brady, yummy taste. Awesome stuff!

Delightful Dopplebock with a deep brown color and creamy head. It has a complex flavor with a hint on chocolate.

guzzler67 (1559) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 6, 2003
Deep brown appearance with a dense head. Lethal aroma of chocolate, caramel and a hint of spice. Full bodied smooth, toasted malt, semi-sweet taste with fruity, floral finish. Overall, the best of the doppelbocks.

picked up 1 bottle of this at my local beer-shop.. chilled 2 days, then tasted.. very very smooth with a nice burnt malt flavor that wasnt overpowering. hints of baker's chocolate. Would carry a 6 pack but it's a hair spendy ($16 a 6er) at my local shop. Dig the nifty goat-tag too.

Suprisingly good. It's very smooth, with a nice warm taste. It's a new favorite. Plus, the plastic rams will be decorating my Christmas tree this year :-)

Nice malty flavor. I haven't decided whether or not I like the aftertaste however. One sip I'll like it and the next I'll hate it.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2003 Tasted in DC from Cairo. Deep dark brown colour, nice white head. Aroma is of toffee, caramel, hints of chocolate. Flavour isn't as big as aroma. Subtle malty sweet chocolaty taste. Light hop flavour.

Nice deep brown with reddish hues. Small fine head with good lacing. Nice rounded coffee flavor with the right touch of bitterness. A very good doppelbock!

Superb example of Doppelbock style. Poured a deep brown color with a generous head. Rich, luscious, smooth mothfeel. Celebrator was dominated by sweet caramel, raisins, and roasted malt flavors with subtle floral, fruity, and spicy notes. Very complex. A little pricy but very good.
