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.

Deep brown pour with a thin tan head made of tight forming bubbles. Aroma is dark malts, molasses, brown sugar, and chocolate. Incredibly rich flavor. Dark roasted malt flavors, wood, hints of bitter chocolate. Delicious, rich, and refreshing all at the same time. Sets the standard for Dopplebocks.

Iznogud (1230) - CROATIA - APR 14, 2015
Bottle, 330 from Pivoljub, Ljubljana. Pours reddish brown with off-white head. Malty caramel, ripe fruit, sweet, bit roasted. Complex. Good brew, but can’t say I’m impressed.

Pours deep copper from 12 oz bottle with full tan head. Malty, warm aroma. Tastes appropriately sweet with deep complex malty flavor to follow, hints of figs, plums, chocolate. Not much on the hops. Warm alcoholic mouthfeel with full body. Fantastic beer from a legendary brewery. Not designed for mass consumptions, though beer doesn’t get much better than this.

robto (47) - Belas, PORTUGAL - APR 9, 2015
33cl bottle at O menu café bar in Sintra, Portugal. It pours a dark-brown colour with a bubbly beige head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is very smoky, dark fruits, caramel, molasses, syrup, herbs and some oaks. Taste is sweet, caramel, smoked stuff, raisins, syrup, dark fruits, plums and a little hoppy. It has a medium to low body with average carbonation with a slight dry and hoppy finish. Definitely one of the best German beers I’ve tasted. I will drink this again in the future.

Avetixz (22) - Wolfsburg, GERMANY - APR 7, 2015
Smoky, fruity aroma. Dark fruits, herbs, roasty malt and some hops. Pours dark brown translucent liquid with a white head that disappears quickly. Bitter in the taste with a very malty and definitely "dark" flavour, smoky and dry with a hint of fruit. Definitely has some wine characteristics. The alcohol is not too noticable and blends well with the flavour to create a nice balance. Full body with an oily texture and a bitter and dry finish. Definitely a good strong beer for celebrations and other events, which judging by the name it was meant for.

Dark blue-brown colour with small head. Aroma of dark fruits, bananas, hebs. Taste of hops, dark fruits, bananas, malts. Nice malty aftertaste which is very well balanced. Overall: Justifiable is this beer on the first place in this rang.

jh773 (203) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2015
No bottling date visible but I’ve had this since January. Color is opaque ruby-black, head is only some thin lacing. Smell is rich savory malt, molasses, roasted coffee, chocolate syrup, soy sauce. Drinks easily. Dry fruity cocoa flavor, smoky, rich malty savory character. Really great character and versatile too.

abemorsten (3069) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - APR 2, 2015
0,33 l flaske kjøpt på Hos Walter i Ebeltoft. Dyp klar granatrød kropp med et fingertykt tett lysebrunt skumlag som dekker glassveggen etterhvert om det synker sammen. Kandissukker, dadler, fiken og svisker er det som slår meg når jeg drar aromaene inn i nesa. Ølet er fyldig og bløtt i munnen med god balanse mellom sødme, fruktighet og bitterhet. Den snikende alkovarmen er kledelig og hele smaksbildet varer lenge. Dette var snadder!
