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.

Deep and dark brown. I poured this beer pretty aggressive and i got a big head with big bubbles and also some lacing. Malty aroma - chocolate, anise, nuts, caramel. Taste is roasted malts, coffee, some smoke and some bitterness in the aftertaste.

minutemat (2065) - 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.

Really tasty beer. Brings the heat off the edge. This is a medium looking beer and really nice taste and palate.

77ships (4908) - 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.

zimbo (730) - SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2015
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.

Aromas of dried fruits such as plums and cherries, toasted malt, caramel, with hints of chocolate, licorice, Clear dark amber to brown with beige head that lingers and laces.Flavors of caramel, toast, bread, raisin, plum, with hints of umami.

Brown/red with bubbly tan head. Nose is German malts, creamy, raisin, maybe a hint of smoke. Taste matches, dark malty, some dark fruits, brown sugar, almost a toffee on the finish, a hint of smoke. Tastes very German, both yeast hop and malt profile are classic doppelbock. Creamy yet thinish mouthfeel. Very good
