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.

Roasted malts notes and yeast additions are very strong tasting, with hops far in the background. Coffee and chocolate pop off your tastebuds with every sip, and no acidic "twang" from smokey malt flavors. Light carbonation, not too "spritzy." Palate feel is fuzzy, and every flavor going on quickly all amounts to smoky sweet chocolate/bananas/coffee. Looks like a stout, pours like a stout, tastes like a finely crafted Dopplebock.

330 ml bottle. Dark brownish red colour with a large and dense tan head. Aroma is sweet with notes of malt, coffee and licorice. Flavor is roasted malt with some fruity notes, alcohol and a bitter coffee finish with a hint of smoke in the background. Best doppelbock out there.

Living in Bavaria I have tried many excellent beers but this is by far the best. Celebrator is like a fine wine compared to normal beer- the flavour is light but satisfying, delicious and long lasting. Ayinger is an unpretentious but outstanding brewerey-we are proud to have come to live here and consider it our ’local’!

A caramel circus! Lots of malt, caramel, and prunes in the aroma. Not at all boozy. More dark fruit in the taste. Creamy, medium body. Great any time of year.
