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.

Demens (58) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 12, 2016
0,33l bottle. Dark brown colour with quickly shrinking brown head. Aroma: blackcurrant, blueberry, caramel, coffee, alcohol is hiding. I smell metallic tones but not always so I don’t what it is. Taste: Sweet bread than bitter coffee taste. Medium/full body. Medium carbonation long bitter finish.

Dark brown colour. Small layer of froth. Some caramel, honey, hints of berries in the aroma. Some caramel, hints of berries, bitterness of coffee. Very many layers of taste. Very well balanced, medium bodied, medium carbonated, tasty drinking beer. Another one, please.

deepeary (397) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2016
Nose: complex mix of smokey fruity esters. Berries, pears, grapes, plums, cherry. Taste a wonderfully creamy and balanced fruity malt medley, with molasses and caramel. Approachable yet complex and satisfying. Every sip better than the last.

ciocanelu (604) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JAN 8, 2016
Really dark brown color with light brown head. Aroma has dark, roasted malt and a bit of milk chocolate. Taste is really roasty with hints of coffee and chocolate. Body is light and well carbonated. Quite nice overall, easy to drink and more roasty than a regular bock.

With almost 3500 ratings I doubt I can add much to the comments which have come before... Truly a wonderful example of the style if not, perhaps, the definition of the style itself. Perfect for a winter’s eve such as now, to be savored and drunk slowly. Nice foam which lingers nicely well after the initial pour. Excellent feel on the tongue which invites leisurely imbibing. I am lucky enough to be enjoying it on tap...

KansaiBeerLvrs (3803) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 5, 2016
Celebrator! I finally tracked down a bottle at OPC in Busan for 8800 KRW. A rich ruby brown with a light tan head. The aroma is fragrant bready fruits, toffee caramel goodness. Full bodied and richly malty. The taste is toffee, a bit of smoke, bready like a thick loaf of dark European bread. This is very smooth drinking stuff.

Bavarian_Beer (35) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle. Almost opaque black liquid with reddish hue and medium light tan head. Aroma of raw sugar, dried fruit, light caramel, light ash, bread and floral hops. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of raw sugar, raisins, toffee, chocolate and light ash. Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Great Doppelbock.

Super-smooth with a great malts-hops balance, the latter showing its presence only in the finish. Aroma is caramel, nuts and slightly sour dark cherries. Surprisingly lightweight body. My favorite dopplebock with a plastic ram hanging from its bottle’s neck!

Echon (195) - Århus, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2015
Clear dark mahogany body with a light brown head.
Somewhat sweet and quite malty aroma with dried fruit and chocolate notes.
Moderate sweetness and medium bitterness. Rich, complex taste, with malty, fruity and spicy flavours.
Full body with soft carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel.

Rich and tasty, complex and smooth, and very drinkable. Amazing doppelbock.
