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.

TH28 (379) - - FEB 7, 2014
Appearance is clear, deep brown with ruby highlights. Holds a nice thick tan foam cap. Aroma is all malt. Caramel, licorice, cherries, and plums. Taste is caramel forward with less emphasis on the dark fruit and licorice. Distinct toasted character. Mouthfeel is medium with a slight creaminess and low carbonation. Finishes with a toasted malt flavor and leaves some lingering caramel flavor on the tongue. Hop character is minimal

This one had awesome chocolate, coffee, molasses notes with a touch of mushroomy earthiness. This is accompanied with full dried fruit flavours. Prune, Raisin, date and even fig come through. It's a dark rich brown colour. Medium short finish with a medium full body. The malt really carries itself here while the hops are very low. It would be great paired with a medium sweet dessert such as ginger snap cookies, or a washed rind blue cheese. Game meats! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ein wirklich leckeres Bier mit sehr großer Bandbreite. Der Schaum allerdings hat enttäuscht. Die Farbe nett. Das alles allerdings macht der Geschmack bei weitem wieder gut. Sehr gehaltvoll.

jsporrer (711) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2016
Pours a medium brown color with a thin tan ring of foam. Somewhat thin body. Very light, smooth malty taste with some hints of earth and wood. Not bad but not really what I expected. OK but not great.

Bendrixian (1487) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2016
Can’t believe i’ve never rated this one as it is one my favs. Pours murky brown colour. Nice yeasty and estery with burnt caramel aroma that goes chocolate and raisin like once it opens up. Good complexity and very balanced, not too sweet and not dry. Good length and molasses flavours with a touch that dry up the palate. Great beer.

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2016
- schwarz-braune Farbe mit guter Schaumbildung - schöne Aromen nach Malz, Karamell, Rosinen und etwas Kaffee - absolut perfekte Carbonisierung - der Antrunk überrascht, da im Gegensatz zu anderen Bockbieren die Süße nicht dominant ist - der 2. Geschmack ist eine angenehme, gut wahrnehmbare Würzigkeit - danach kommt etwas Schokolade und Haselnuss hinzu - im Abgang malzig bitter = perfekt Fazit: Dunkler Doppelbock in Perfektion.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2016 Bottle From hopfen und Malz in Berlin. Pours dark Red. smells of Sweet spice with hints of caramell. Great full typical dark beer taste. In the aftertaste it has the reminescence of soggy cornflakes. A great doppelbock
