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 (989) - 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.

Pours a deep dark brown with big khaki head. Fragrant, dark aromas of forest floor, 55% chocolate, roasted cereals and gingerbread dough. Medium bodied palate. Complex and tasty with almost zero alcohol heat. Decent finish. Very nice.

HoppyScallywag (177) - Butler, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2015
I like the malty sweetness in this. It really masks the alcohol well. It is a darker, heavier beer, but really good. I would definitely get this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours black with a light brownish white head. Malt, fruit, some roast aroma. Fruity, surprisingly light palate with lots of sweetness. Treacherously non-alcoholic for the ABV. Overall very nice.

Bottle. Almost opaque black liquid with reddish hue and medium light tan head. Aroma of raw sugar, dried fruit, light caramel, light ash, pumpernickel, bread and floral hops. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of raw sugar, raisins, toffee, chocolate and light ash. Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Great doppelbock. Can’t believe I haven’t rated this before.
