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.

Can’t add much to the descriptions posted here. Celebrator has been the king of doppelbocks for the ten years I have been drinking them.

Terminus (3342) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - NOV 9, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2003 Bottle-If you get this stuff fresh, its probably the best malt-based beer out there! Super Sweet aroma-spice, banana, brown sugar, chocolate. Deep brown with small carbonation, looks like a nirto pull. Lots of malt in the flavor-chocolate, carmel and dark malts comprise a very complex profile. Finish is somewhat dry with some coffee notes-very sweet! Very deep and dark malty chocolate finish. Good aftertaste that makes you want more.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 6, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2004 Deep dark ruby hue. Frothy beige head. Aromas of fruitcake, bready, raisons, plum, molasses, very earthy. My goodness...what a complex palate. Starts off nice and sweet, earthy, dark carmelized fruit. Velvet smoothness is incredible. Hops are there in the finish, as well as a strong smokey character. This is the bomb double bock, the best of show no doubt.

madsberg (10684) - Søborg, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2003 Has a dark ruby colour, with a good head. The aroma is magnificent. Never smelled something as good. Coffee, fruits (plums), spices, alcahol, it"s all there. The flavour is not as great but still it"s way beoynd most other beers. Again some coffee/caramel, fruits (apples) and spices. Very wellbalanced beer. In the aftertaste there is a pleasant smoothe bitterness. Absolute a great beer.

I wouldn’t call this my absolute favorite, but its quality is unmistakeable. Attractive appearance with an interesting cascade-type effect. Aroma is smokey, chocolatey, molassas, vinous; in the tasting there is plenty going on, but the bitterness shows out without excessive sweetness. Well balanced. Went a bit flat for me, but I didn’t want to drink it any faster than I did. A beer to appreciate.

Wonderfully complex, the bitter hoppy notes mix perfectly with the malty goodness. Fruits like plums and berries are somewhere in the background.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2004 Delicious! It reminded me of drinking a chocolate cream pie; it had a great creamy mouthful with a sweet (but not overly so) flavor.
