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 yearís 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.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2006 This is everything that a beer should be. Full flavored, smooth, rich, etc. etc. Itís pretty much everything that itís hyped up to be. My only complaint is the hefty price tag, at 17 dollars a six pack before tax a deposit, this is most certainly a "special occassion" beer.

This is certainly a complex and great beer. I didnít enjoy it as much as many others though. There was an odd taste that I didnít particularly enjoy. I couldnít put my finger on it. Overall, it was very good, but I have high expectations for a $3.00 hyped bottle.

If the smell and apperance alone made up the beerís rating this would be a 5. This however still gets REAL high marks. Excellent beer. Malty, nice not too strong alcohol taste. A strange mixture of sweetness and hoppy bitterness. Very rich though. If you want to get drunk, look elsewhere. If you want an amazing beer. Here ya go.

Very rich sweet, malty, bubblegum taste. Very dark brown color. The feel was thick...almost chewy. Impressive beer.

Sweet malty, nutty aroma. Deepest brown, medium cappuccino head. Incredible malt, caramel flavour, faint bitterness. An intensely complex brew, somewhat sweet. A true Dopplebock!

One of the most beautiful pours you will ever see. Sweet, nutty aroma and taste. A very complex beer that teases your taste buds between the sweetness, maltiness, and underlying hoppiness. The sweet caramel like taste is just a little too strong for my tastes. But an excellent beer none the less.
