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.

Very tasty beer, actually it was the first beer I had bought after finding this website, and was the beer that pushed me toward "the better beer". Before this it was all bud, miller,etc. But thanks to RB I have found the WAY! Anyway after the pour, it left a nice creamy head. Itís color seemed to be of dark caramel as did a the taste. Which was also overwhelmed with chocolate, malt, and lighter notes of fruit and nuts. Overall I was more than impressed with this DB, will go back to the pond this one came from. And have already used it to sway a fellow drinker to trying out the finer beers of the world with me. Cheers to Ayinger on this beer!

this dopplebock is the finest iíve had. coffee, fruits and smoke roll around in your mouth and bombard your tastebuds. get as much of this as you can its worth any price.

This is a hearty doppelbock! Carmel, chocolate, toffee, and toasted nuttiness seem to be a worthy description of the flavors. Chewy maltiness. Rich and satisfying. A good one!

deep ruby brown with a nice appropriate head. malty caramel nose with no real hops presence. rich caramel body, sorta earthy. i feel like iím drinking liquid alcoholic caramel! smooth body with a perfect finish. seems perhaps a little thin though. great beer!

Dark in color with a good head. It had a sweet smell. The taste was sweet and smooth with many different flavors coming at you.

Smooth and good are th best ways to describe this beer. Pootie Tang-licious and owl-filled are bad ways to describe it (my fridge is owl-free, thank you!).

This is my favorite Doppel. This thing pours like creek sludge. THICK. Smells wonderful. Instead of the usual soy of most doppelís this one is more cloyingly sweet. Incredibly sweet. And in this instance cloying is good because it lingers. Nice head that dissipates slowly. I think this one has a lovely saaz hop backgroud that really distinguishes it from other Doppelís. The malt also has an interesting burnt rubber quality to its nose that subtly carries over to its palate. Leaves me satisfied every time....if I didnít just eat, like eating potato dumplings its so thick. G-rat

Ever had a beer many times without realizing you hadnít rated it yet? Yeah, I couldnít believe I hadnít given this one the salute. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a decent tan head that lasts for a while but doesnít leave much lace. Aroma is smoky roasted malt. Flavor is roasted malt with some really dark fruits, and very complex. Smokey with some coffee and caramel notes, too. Palate is clean yet malty, if that makes sense. Overall, this rocks, but I gotta say I like Salvator better.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2005 Duvel tulip glass: commercial description, anyone? :o) basically, itís really damn great. smooth and rich, dark and sexy. celebrator, rawr! UPDATE 2/12/05: english pint, room temp. / strong aroma of fig and toffee, glorious dark copper body with only the smallest ruby highlight, massive light tan head that is sparkly, tight, and with a lot of soapy lace, and it slowly, but never fully, diminishes in a rocky and airy manner. yum! primary flavors are smoke, fruit, toffee, and deliciousness. an excellent brew! (downrated flavor and overall.)
