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.

Bottle. Pours dark brown, like cola, with a fluffy beige head. Not much aroma. Subtle chocolate and fruit. Flavors of roasty malts, chocolate, cola, coffee and raisin. Very smooth and malty. Mild hop finish. Very nice.

My favorite overall beer. From the nose to the finish, everything is smooth and fantastic. Dopplebocks start and end here.

En meget sødlig maltet smag, men ikke så meget spritet smag. En rigtig fin øl.

ignorant (49) - madrid, SPAIN - FEB 16, 2016
close to black, with glitter candles halfway between reddish tones and dark tea color. Dense and thick layer of creamy foam, more than two fingers thick permanent long time. Velvety texture. Moderately aerated with fine bubbles. Predominance in the nose of roasted malt notes, caramel, toffee and some chocolate. sweetish and smoky nuances that complement the aromatic spectrum emerge. Little presence of hops in the olor.Sabor and delicious texture. Easy entry, has a silky texture. De malty character, highlighting the flavors of toast, coffee and caramel, with a slightly smoky notes. Tasty, yet, as it is neither sweet nor as alcoholic and other doppelbock. Enough hops to balance load in perspective. It ends with a lightly bitter aftertaste.

Schwarz und dick wie Öl, dabei aber von überraschender Frische. Röstmalz, Schokolade, Kaffee, Toffee, Dörrobst. Leicht trocken-malziger Abgang.

IlGagario (99) - Modena, ITALY - FEB 8, 2016
In bottiglia, a casa. Colore rosso scurissimo impenetrabile, praticamente nero, con minime venature cola. Testa color crema di caffè, grassa, fitta, da soapy a cremosa, in diminuzione abbastanza celere, a scomparire. Olfatto etilico di frutta scura, tostature e lievito. Carbonazione da media a vivace. Superbo aroma maltato dolce, con note tostate di malto, frutta scura amara, prugna, liquirizia, lievito e pane nero. Finale di beva mediamente lungo, amaro e leggermente piccante, poco secco. Corpo da medio a pieno, un po’ liquoroso, nonostante ciò una buona scorrevolezza e una trama molto accessibile. La regina delle doppelbock, piacevolmente più tostata delle sue rivali, da questo blasonato birrificio bavarese, collocato sempre al top delle categorie di cui si occupa.
