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.

Pours very sexy. Malty to the core, alcohol is very well balanced w/ the rich choc./malt/ caramel side. Good, was a bit pricy for whats inside.. maybe overrated?

Blueshawk (76) - 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.

AleRider78 (628) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2016
Pours an average size tan head. Has a dark brown appearance, almost black. Has good lacing and average retention. Dark roasted malt aromas dominate, sort of yeast with some cocoa. Flavours are thick and rich in dark malts, with mochaa and coffee notes. Seems like alcohol is faintly noticeable. A hint of chocolate rounds out the whole. Mouthfeel is average. has some bitterness and has a bit of spicy notes in aftertaste. Pretty good stuff.

McSherman (521) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2016
Dunkelbraun, fast schwarz, leicht rötlich schimmernd. Der Geruch erinnert fast an ein Porter, für einen Doppelbock recht leicht. Schöne leicht süßliche Röstmalzaromen, allen voran dunkle Schokolade und Brot. Sehr cremiger weicher Körper. Zunächst sehr malzig aromatisch (Schokolade, Brot, getrocknete Früchte), dann alkoholisch wärmend und schließlich mit einer Röstbittere abklingend. Tolles Bier!

jawe (39) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2016
Dark, bordering on black. Aroma of burnt caramel, coffee and roasted, bready malt. Taste of dried fruit, cocoa and coffee bean. Accompanied by a soft caramel sweetness and some lingering bitterness towards the end. Very balanced. Palate is oily with less than medium carbonation which for this style is quite fitting. One of the few doppelbocks you can drink more than two in one sitting. Or three.

mice (782) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Hyvin tumma olut. Ruskeaa vaahtoa kohtalaisesti, jättää hieman pitsiä. Tuoksussa jonkinlaista vihannesmaisuutta, joka ei oikein toimi. Tähän nokkaan joka tapauksessa aika mieto tuoksu. Maku paahtuneen maltainen ja makea. Runkoa löytyy, ja tämä on aika hyvin balanssissa.

Bottle shared with Simonsen at Hvaler
Pours dark brown with a thick tanned head. Perfect look! Smell of dark malts, toffee, hints of toast and dried fruits, quite inviting. Medium sweet, hints of nuts, alot of dark delicious malt flavors, chocolate and toffee. Just a very good bock beer!
