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.

mezr (100) - California, USA - JUL 14, 2016
Poured from an 11.2 oz bottle. The color is dark brown with a reddish hue looking somewhat like cola. A tan head leaves nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is fruity with mild roasted malt. Sweet with a lightly bitter and dry finish. Hint of alcohol present. Soft carbonation, thick and creamy on the palate.

kingaugusta (235) - Georgia, USA - JUL 5, 2016
Pours a very deep reddish brown and clear with a nice tan head. Nose is a lot of candy with brown sugar and licorice leading the way ahead of some bread. Flavor is similar but not quite as sweet with deeper flavors from barley and wheat accenting a nice semi dark malt. Finishes a little roasty and sticky. Excellent beer

cwill (66) - Coatesville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Dark mahogany appearance with a big frothy tan head leaving plenty of lacings as it goes down Aromas of molasses, caramel and bread with toasted malts. Huge chewy malty taste of light molasses and toasted bread. Some dried fruit and lingering dark sugars at the end. Mouthfeel is velvety smooth, thick and creamy with modest carbonation. This is a phenomenal beer. Best doppelbock and beer I’ve tasted to date.

GoddamnNoise (54) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - JUL 3, 2016
Aroma: caramel, toasted and roasted malts, a hint of chocolate and coffee and maybe rye bread too. Some weird aroma i couldn’t identify as the beer gets warmer. No hints of hops, yeast or alcohol. Appearance: deep brown color, it seems clear but it’s hard to say because it’s almost opaque, thick creamy tan head with average retention. Almost no Brussels’ lace. Taste: medium sweetness, medium bitterness, no sourness. Palate: watery-to-oily texture, low-to-medium body, flat-to-soft carbonation, sweet with a medium bitter finish. Overall: a good beer without any doubts. Nice appearance and good aroma and flavor profile. Quite well balanced, more on the sweet side, but nice touch of bitterness at finish. Good roasted and toasted flavors and aromas. Tones of chocolate, liquorice. Not very thirst quenching because of its sweetness.

jukkar (116) - FINLAND - JUN 22, 2016
Aroma has bread and coffee in it, also reminds me of Finnish "mämmi". Really dark color, almost no head. Quite sweet taste which I am not fond of. Palate is fizzy and lively, finish is long and lightly bitter. Overall, quite good experience.
