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.

Great malty texture. Good color and head (darker than picture) - one of the best finishes of this type of beer.

There is nothing as magnificent as this German Doppelbock! One of the most difficult beers to brew! Get a taste of this soon!

minutemat (2252) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
330ml bottle from Saveur-Biere.com. Pours a deep hazy brown with receding tan head. Lovely smooth doppelbock flavours, rich and comforting and a decent malt sweetness. Could’ve easily sunk a pint of this.

Bottle. Dark amber, red in colour, white head. In aroma malty, melanoidin notes, also bread, dried fruits and some chocolate?! In taste caramel, toasted malt, fruitsŁ raisins and plums. Medium bodied, oily in texture, medium carbonated with medium bitterness at the end. Really well done beer.

77ships (4940) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 1, 2015
330 ml. bottle from Malt Attacks. Shared @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. A very, very long time want. I have been wanting to try this one since forever. BBF 09/2015. Dark ruby amber, little tanned head. Nose is rather umami, fish guts, DE lager profile with lots of sugar, malty, umami, note takes a bit away from it for me, light nuts & oxidation. Taste is big umami, fish guts, DE yeast, strong DE lager with a reasonable amount of sugar sweetness, spices & herbs figure big time, quite herbal, umami,… Typical body for the style. Seeming faint oxidation. I am not the biggest fan of this king of profile. Looking at my rating, I am not a particularly big fan of doppelbock’s in general. Decent but I would have loved to have enjoyed this more. Bummer.

The nose never lies and this beer’s pear dropish deep prune bouquet is everything this beer sould be. Dark rich brown in colour with perfect carbonation and a smooth body with good sap makes this such a stupidly easy beer to love. An undisputed world classic which should be way ahead of all those Frankenstein beers on the ratebeer Top 250.
