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 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.

A very good commercial Doppelbock. Rich malty and complex, you won't get it any better unless you brew it yourself. Worthy of all the positive statements others have made.

Get some malty caramel with some raisin? in the nose. Pours with a big head. Taste finishes with some malty roast bitterness

Pours a deep dark brown with tan head. Flavors of coffee and chocolate just dance in your mouth.

Sweet aroma of fruit and English malts and a nice smokeyness. The appearance is nice dark brown with large tan head. The flavor is sweet at first with a smokey malty finish - seems a bit off, maybe an old bottle? Not a huge fan of this one, but then again I'm not a huge fan of anything remotely related to English malts or a brown ale. One night of intense tasting and I'd had enough of them...

The smell is of fruits and english malt... which I have developed a personal distaste for following a brown ale tasting... The flavor is somewhat malt, and a bit acidic acctually, perhaps I opened a bad bottle.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2005 A Christmas gift from my secret Santa. Smells like dates, ruby in color, dark chocolate and alcohol flavor (which are both good for me)--very fine pour indeed, great for wasseling.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 15, 2003
Pours almost black, with a thick tan head. Aroma is of wild berries, earth, nuts, brown sugar, and caramel. It's sweet and almost like a good port. The finish is a bit dry and it has a nice lingering aftertaste. A really good brew.

This may be one of the most... celebrated double bocks around, but I found it to be too much like rewarmed ham and sweet potatoes to be one of my favorite beers. Maybe it was a little old.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2005 Very sweet aroma. Malts and hard candy. Really nice, also very unique. I can’t explain it but it has a feel to it that German beers tend to have. Light roasty flavor. Really rich toasted malts. Suprisingly not that sweet. Perfect balance. This stuff has such a great taste to it. The mouthfeel is tremendous. Creamy and full. Simply excellent beer. The best that I’ve had of German offerings.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2004 Pours a deep dark brown, more Porter brown than Ale brown in IMO. Aroma is outstanding, filling the nose with roast and fruits and chocolates. First tast is smooth and gental, no harsh bitterness, in fact the bitterness only serves to clean the pallatte for the subtle flavors to follow. This is a start that you can drink all night long and not tire of. It only getts better from there, with a deep creamy, roast finish. No hint of alcohol, just deep flavors one on top of another. This is a beer that I will return to again and again. Two thumbs up here. Find it if you haven't, you deserve to try this beer.
