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.

rangerred (986) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - NOV 14, 2012
330ml bottle into a pint glass. Pours a nearly opaque dark brown with a half finger tan head that fades rather quickly leaving just a tiny bit of foam on top. No lacing. Aroma is full of malt. Lots of caramel, toffee, and burnt sugar along with an almost soy sauce like character but it is not off-putting. A touch of chocolate as well. The flavor is very heavy on the burnt sugar/caramel but it doesn’t become astringent. This leads to some milk chocolate and a touch of coffee and toast. A little hop bitterness towards the finish but it is far in the background. Malt dominates. Mouthfeel is full and sticky/sweet but stays just below being cloying. Overall, one of the best Doppelbocks out there. This is probably one of my least favorite styles but I can appreciate it for what it is; a nice, malty, cold weather beer and this one really packs in tons of flavor.

Birra scura, schiuma abbondante. Aromi complessi di lampone e cioccolato. Corpo pienissimo, sensazione avvolgente. Carbonazione abbondante classica dello stile. Bilanciamento sorprendente.

nihtila (760) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2015
10.1.2014. Hyvin tumma vaaleanruskealla vaahdolla. Tuoksussa mallasta, suklaata ja salmiakkia, hieman makeutta. Maku maltainen, hieman leipäinen, pehmeä, hieman makea, hieman paahteinen, hieman suklaatakin. Suutuntuma täyteläinen ja pehmeähappoinen. Melko monimuotoinen.

BadAprilia1000 (326) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Pours a very dark color with an average but dark head. Aroma is raisin, fig, rich caramel, HUGE malt, dates, toffee, smoke. Taste is rich, creamy, malt, raisins and fig with a spicy caramel taste, some slight bitter hop, toffee and caramel to smooth it out, and a dry finish with a great smoky note. Fantastic beer, thought we rated it before, definitely an prime example of what a doppelbock should be.

0,3l Flasche. Dunkler Bock mit beiger Schaumkrone. Riecht toll nach Röstaromen, nach vergorenen Früchten und Schokolade. Im Geschmack werden diese Gerucharomen auch harmonisch wiedergegeben. Weltklasse!
