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.

Beautiful dark brew, nice presentation. Aroma is blackberry and roasty. Flavor is a distinctive coffee/toffee/berry. Dense palate with trailing bitter. Pricey, but a must-try.

Mahogany color with creamy tan head - my girlfriend said it looks like root beer. Great aroma, malt, chocolate, fruit. Flavor mimics the aroma, initial sweetness followed by a bitter aftertaste. Amazing mouthfeel, so smooth. This is far and away the best beer I have had.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2005 Man this beer is just great! I taste molasses, nuts, malt, and a tinge of alcoholic bite, as it should with 6.7%. This is my favorite beer to just sit back and drink.

It took me a while to stop playing with the plastic ram and drink the beer, but when I did, it was not a disapointment. Has a light fruity sweetness with a smokey character. And most importantly, this is the only beer that comes with a free toy.

Nice dark look with a good sized head. Has a strong aroma of roasted almonds and toffee. Dry and sweet.

softale (188) - Michigan, USA - AUG 15, 2002
Very dark ruby reddish-brown in color. Dark roasted malts, coffee, caramel, toffee notes. This is a full bodied dopplebock with a smooth mouthfeel. Starts sweet but finishes dry and somewhat bitter. This is a tasty dopplebock.

Nose is smoky. Dark in color with a thick rich head. Great flavor, very malty with a hint of chocolate. One of the best doppelbocks out there.

foduck (330) - Denton, Texas, USA - AUG 12, 2002
Meaty, chewy, buttery. Darker appearance than any other doppelbock i’ve seen. It’s a lot like drinking a stout. While I think this is a good beer, I kept thinking I was drinking a stout and not a doppelbock. I was expecting more out of this beer. A very overrated beer IMO.
