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.

Very heavy and rich. The head is a wierd grayish brown color. Totally sweet. Loads of roasted malt, with a very full body. Sort of like a milder version of Samichlaus. My idea of a perfect beer, especially for the frigid months.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2004 Finally,fresh bottles.Dark,dark,mahogany with a creamy,pillowy,head. Strong,rich,aromas of raisins,german malts,fruit.Silky,somewhat spritzy mouthfeel.Perfect carbonation.Fruity,sweet,toastiness in the mouth.Such a subtle hop/smokey finish.Vinous,smoke also appear in the aroma,after breathing.Dark fruit flavors and strong malt take over the mouth and some strong malt presence in the finish develops as well. For the strength and richness this go down easy as can be.

Finished off with this one, and I must say it was incredible. Medium head, and leaves a nice lace on the glass. Alcohol is apparent, but not overpowering. Very full flavor, with one coming right after another. Fairly dry finish, and also a bit malty for the style. A definite top ten.

Wonderful! So complex and rich, extremely tasty. I don’t know if someone with such an undeveloped beer palate (like me) can appreciate it, but I know that its good and I will definitely get it again.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 9, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2007 Beautiful mahoghany brown with fine, swirling light tan lacing. Complex malt aromas and flavors (lots of raisins, dates, walnuts and milk chocolate), and these complexities are accentuated by a very balanced sweetness. Some roastiness makes a showing towards the end of the sip. Excellent overall, with a finish that is somehow both dry and pleasantly sweet.

Tastes great. Thick and black in the glass. Thick and it went down smooth as silk.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2007 This one rates in the "classic" pages in my book. They have the history and knowledge to do it right and they do. Please sir, may I have another?

Dark ruby with a nice creamy tan head. Aroma is huge, with sweet malts, fruit, and a little roasted malt, too. Flavor was equally big - raisin, brown sugar, molasses, and hints of chocolate. Feels really full in the mouth, and the flavor sticks around for a while, too.
