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.

Pedrens (102) - SPAIN - FEB 21, 2015
Botella. Color marrón rojizo muy oscuro y límpido. Espuma marrón clarito de media formación y baja persistencia. Aromas a malta tostada, alcohol y lúpulo en un principio, q evoluciona hacia notas mas a regaliz, ciruelas pasas, arandanos, bizcocho, chocolate y azúcar moreno. En boca la primera sensación es aceitosa, y algo densa...dulce donde se hacen presentes todos los matices de nariz, para terminar con un toque algo mas seco con matices a malta tostada, lúpulo, madera y regaliz, el final es bastante largo. Carbonatacion baja. Redonda.Birrote!

Glad I can finally try this classic. Deep brown body, beige head has decent retention and leaves some lacing. Aromas of dark chocolate, raisins, caramel. Taste is complex and balanced, with bitterness, a plum-like sweetness and spicyness all having their say here. A lasting spicy aftertaste remains. Smooth and easy drinking, a great doppelbock.

Do I love malt. Why, yes I do! This stuff is almost too good. Deepest brown pour with dense tan, clingy head. Aromas of toast, bready malt, some esters and yeast. Flavors similar to smell, with a heavy malt presence dominating the show. There are only a handful of brews, with which if they were the only available in the world, I could be completely content. This is one of them.

Join tämän mämmin kanssa. Välillä oli vaikea erottaa suusta kumpi on mämmin ja kumpi Celebratorin makua. Täydellinen tyylinsä edustaja. Optimaalinen tarjoilulämpötila on mielestäni vain hieman huoneenlämpöä viileämpänä.

Jonb5 (406) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2015
330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip A: Jet black, opaque, small tanned head, not much retention, minimal lacing. S: Prune, grape, oak, dark chocolate, biscuit, burnt caramel and some diacetyl. T: Tawny port was the overriding taste, molasses, dark chocolate lots of roasted barley at the finish, some bitterness. Hint of a boozy burn as it warmed. M: Smooth in, coarse out because of the booze, low carbonation, heavy chewy texture. O: Oozed class, would love to make a loaf of bread with this. I’m also intrigued to know what a year of aging would do to this.

Pours dark brown with big beige head. Sweet smell, reminding raisins and plums, and some toasted malt. Taste is well balanced by sweetness, alcohol and toasted malts. Rich beer with good drinkability.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2015 Bottle from Buxton Brewery Tap House. Pours an opaque dark brown colour with a ruby tint and a medium beige head. Aroma of treacle, sweet malt, liquorice and dark fruit. Taste is sweetish, with caramel, liquorice and raisins, also a bit of smokiness and nuttiness. Soft carbonation and full bodied. Nice liquor-icy, oaky finish. A surprislingly easy drinking and full flavoured beer. Delicious.
