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 yearís 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.

graziano85 (304) - Budapest, - JAN 30, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 Deep dark brown colour, and brownish head, disappearing....seems Coca Cola! Very bready nose, sweet malts, licorice. The taste also licorice, definetely, sweet (but not too much) & bready, and some fruity notes, but also smoked. Medium/low carbonation, and alcohol ok, but it would fit better some more. Well-bodied beer, but I was expecting more since itís so famous. But good and complex.

minihame2 (203) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 27, 2014
Pours dark brown with a tan frothy head. Malty, oatmeal aroma with some hoppy notes. Taste begins quite strong but quickly balances out. Noticeable roasted taste in the end. Smooth mouthfeel, soft carbonation, quite enjoyable feeling. Itís pretty good even though Iím not sure if I like the roastiness in this style.

Appearance- dark, dark, dark mocha/mahogany brown. Big, tan, frothy long lasting head. Very little lacing (if any). Smell- nutty, chocolate, ginger, caramel. Taste- deep dark chocolate (very much like high % cacao), fig, coffee. Sweetness up front, bitter on the back. Mouthfeel- smooth, silky, medium body. Overall- outstanding! Excellent! A great Dopplebock. Would absolutely recommend. Cheers!

Schnabelhund (69) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2014
Pours black with a beautiful tan head of medium lifetime. A dark amber hue shines through when held against the light. The nose is brimming with notes of dark cane sugar, caramel, nuts, and butteriness. Surprisingly, the roastiness of this beer doesnít come off as strong until it makes its appearance on the mid-palate following the not-too-sweet maltose front. It then stays, in form of a gentle coffee note, well into the dry finish. Medium carbonation and a full body combined with a slightly astringent tannic quality make the mouthfeel pleasant. A refined brew with a big yet down-to-earth flavor.

HammerTroll (450) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 22, 2014
Completely black, canít even see red hue when light is behind the glass. Small to medium sized off-white head. Roasted malts, chocolate and coffee aroma. A bit smoked. Some sweetness, some bitterness. Medium body, soft carbonation, kind of creamy. Well balanced.

tightslice (175) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is dark fruits, roasted malts. Taste is raisins, dry chocolate, something ashy yet creamy. A wonderfully rich yet completely session-able concoction. A go-to German beer.
