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: MAY 12, 2006 As close as Iíve had to perfection. Is there anything wrong with this beer? Not that I can find. The head is wonderfully thick and creamy, the aroma sweet, malty, and reminiscent of molasses. The sweet taste made me want to enjoy every sip as if I had only one bottle---which I did, unfortunately. Slight bitter finish is a perfect complement to the sweetness. This would have received an even closer to perfect score if not for the slightly heavy sweetness on the palate. Iím off to buy more of this one!

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2009 rerate 6/20/09: Gorgeous deep ruby with an extremely tight, toffee colored foam. Aroma of malt, English toffee, caramel, rum raisin. Quite a full body with a rich, bready flavour that also screams HEATH BAR! This is a wonderful dopplebock. My favorite, probably.

Reminded me very much of Sam Smithís Imperial Stout just without the head retention and a little lighter. Really nice beer, but hand me a stout!

This beer was incredibly good. Sweet double bock, strong, and comes with a plastic ram on a string which i will now wear as a necklace. This beer got me rocked. Worth the buy.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 24, 2002
Exhibits the black, amber-tinged appearance expected of a doppelbock. Rich malting apparent from the first whiff. Heavy body with exorbitantly rich malting, but great for winter. This beer is redolent of malted milk balls and is somewhat cloying at points. A fine beer, but definitely geared for consumption during the cooler months.

Sweet, sweet beer. Comes with a plastic goat. An interesting beer. If you drank some at your work party people would think you were sophisticated.

Seems to be a little more hype than flavor, not really my type of beer I guess.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 19, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2007 Dark ruby body, nice tan head, sweet malty nose with chocolate notes. Big rich malty body, medium sweet, drying out in the finish. What German beer is supposed to be.

Excellent flavour and body but my bottle was overwhelmingly carbonated.
