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.

Strong complex Chocolate/Malty nose. Very dark, almost black color...Looks like I just poured a glass of Coca-Cola. Sweet chocolate, malty, sweet mouth with a very distinct lingering aftertaste.

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.

Does not get much better than this beer when fresh. On tap at Ayinger Munich. 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. Mouthfeel is medium but light for a DB making it the most drinkable DB out there.Carbonation is medium high. Balanced medium finish. Wow!!

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

kraddel (4396) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2015
Bottle thnx to biersmurfke. Pours dark, very dark clear caramel brown. Smell is earhty leaves, bit caramel. Taste is rather bitter. Sharp, yet elegantly complex.... High carbo. Very rich, but all aspects are subtile. An agreeable beer, to say the least. I am obligated to admit that i am impresse, given the fact these styles of beer are not my favorite.

NOTA DE CATA: - Aspecto: Ayinger Celebrator tiene un color caoba con ribete castaño. Desarrolla una espuma color café con leche densa y persistente. - Aroma: Aromas muy particulares. Delante aromas empireumáticos (malta muy tostada) detrás lácteos (queso), aceituna negra. - Cuerpo / Sabor: Entrada ligeramente dulce. Rápidamente aparecen los tostados (pan muy tostado o incluso quemado, café) y caramelo. Es plena y densa, poco atenuada, de media-baja saturación de carbónico. Los anillos que deja la espuma en el vaso delatan el número de tragos (síntoma de su calidad). Alcohol muy bien integrado. Largo final de boca dominado por los tostados muy intensos, y elegante y seco amargo.

Deliciosa, cheirosa, cremosa! Colarinho belíssimo, marrom. A cerveja bem tostada, fortes notas de café. Amargor é balanceado com um pouco de doçura que disfarça o álcool. Ótima carbonatação e textura. Merece muito repetir!
