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.

330 bottle. Love the goat that’s included! Give this beer a few extra points for it. Not very strong smell, and it’s basically very plain, not what expected at all. Good looking fermentation dark beer with creamy white head. Taste is toasted and very good! The ending feels great has well, but you must drink a little to notice all the different flavours in it. A good beer, but for all it’s fame and awards, I must say i was a little dissapointed.

Ayinger. How I’ve missed you. And how I’ve looked forward to meeting Celebrator. What’s with the excessively formal language? I guess this is what German beer does to me. Pouring dark brown with an off-white head, Celebrator looks like a perfectly photogenic Doppelbock. It smells like caramel, malt sugar, and toasted malt. Flavor is complex, malt-forward, and dessert-like. Brown sugar, dark fruit, and subtle cocoa. Thanks to the velvet-smooth feel, the latter flavor element made me think of cake. Seems damn fitting if you ask me. Cake and beer are celebration staples. And this brew is good enough to somehow embody both.

jjsint (1552) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2015
Draught at Les Berthom V, Lyon. Dark and almost impenetrable brown. Large tan head which quickly dissipates to normal levels. Molasses, crime brûlée in the heady and sensual aroma. Taste is intensely sweet without being sickly. A slight hop bitterness keeps it from going over the edge. Gooey palate, maybe slightly too carbonated. A great beer.

Extra allt helt i linje med vad som förväntas i klassen. Funkar till julmaten kanske?

Flaska från SB. Mörkt mörkbrun i färgen och ett fyllig biegt skum som försvinner. Luktar sött av torkad frukt (främst russin), mörk sirap, söt råglimpa och kola men också en aning frisk fruktighet och syrlighet. Smakar av mörkrostad malt, rejält med maltsötma, bränt socker, torkad frukt och sirap. Även här finns en viss fräsch syrlighet som balanserar sötman bra. Avslutar i en del kaffe och mörkrostade toner när sötman lagt sig. En något tunn kropp, hade gärna fått vara aningen fylligare. Annars en väldigt trevlig dubbelbock!

sonotono (154) - torino, ITALY - SEP 24, 2015
Colore molto scuro con riflessi rossastri, schiuma marroncina non abbondante. Odore maltato, malto caramello, tostato, fruttato, frutti di bosco. Sapore tostato e maltato, caramellato, caffè. Una doppelbock che ricorda una porter/stout grazie alle note tostate.

Turtles (766) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2015
330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Very dark brown, creamy beige big head. A wonderfully sweet aroma, rustic bread, dried fruit, nuts and caramel. Full-bodied, oily mouthfeel. The taste is complex, dark syrup, dark bread, raisins, figs, plum, dried apple, chocolate, toffee and overall very pleasent caramelized malt taste but still not too sweet. Very drinkable!
