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.

BoydJustitz (58) - Maryland, USA - AUG 30, 2010
Pours very dark brown-red. Quickly vanishing beige head. Deep smokey aroma. Very heavy mouthful and incredibly filling beer, like eating a delicious desert ... Fruity and sweet, lots of malt. Very warm alcoholic feel without harshness like a good cognac. Can only recommend!

jflopsu (809) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2015
Pours a dark brown-burgundy. Has a sweet malt and caramel aroma. Taste is very balanced with malt, fruits, caramel, light wood, and spices. A very balanced aftertaste of spices and fruity malts.

jc1762 (181) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 29, 2015
Poured into a taster showing coffee brown semi translucent rims and a dark center. The nose shows sweet sugar cane and very strong notes of steel tank here and there. The palate is full bodied and well carbonated. Showing the same aromas expressed as flavors with a coffee-like bitterness at the finish. Really was not impressed at the start and can’t say the palate is any better. Much too sweet and an aroma that is not very inviting. But this is the quintessential doppelbock.

leebotton (310) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2015
Very dsrk brown in colour with a vibrant yellow/tan head. Smells of burnt caramel, roasted continental bread and sweet tobacco with some spice. Flavour is warming toasty spice like cinnamon but astonishingly refreshing cold. It leaves a texture behind which is softly gritty, drawing attentiion to the tobacco like qualities which might seem unpleasant if it were not for the sweetness but gives it an amazingly well rounded character which is interesting, multilayered, and exciting. By far, my favourite German beer

Dark brown beer with a dark beige head. Caramel and dark syrup on the nose. Sweet bread, salty liquorice, slight roastiness and a hint of bitterness. Overall a good beer.

Tognetta (287) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JUN 18, 2015
Bastante escura, espuma bege abundante, de fácil formação, persistência média. Aroma açucarado leve, um pouco de baunilha e banana. Paladar de dulçor médio associado ao malte, amargor que cresce com o tempo. Corpo e carbonação médios. Aftertaste de leve intensidade, amargor crescente parecido com xarope (daqueles que servem com panquecas nos EUA), frutas vermelhas desidratadas.

colui72 (183) - HONG KONG - JUN 15, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2015 A fantastic beer! Dark brown but not hazy, thin head. Aroma of dark fruits and molasses, sweet and smooth. Taste of malts, caramel that fades into a slightly bitter finish. Wonderful.
