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.

Prototypical doppelbock in every way really. Strong malt notes. Perfectly infused with caramel flavor. At the other end of the equation, just the right amount of hops. Well done.

Ambré foncer avec un grand tête beige foncer, presque marron. L’arôme du malt, malt torréfié, sucré brun et mélasse. Le goût à tous ses carecteristiqies aussi.

11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a rich, deep, dark brown with a frothy tan head that lingers for days. Aroma is sweet and consists of hints of chocolate, soy sauce, caramel, and dark raisins. Taste is slightly sweet with flavors of unsweetened chocolate, toffee, and maybe some kind of dark dried fruit. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Has a long, semi-dry finish. This is one of my favorite beers. Every time I have one I make the Homer Simson, "Ohhhhhh", sound. Seriously!

Senka (497) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 27, 2014
33cl bottle. BBE 01.15 Malty, slightly thin body, gentle carbonation. This one of the most readily available doppelbocks, and is a template for many others. Good when warm and cold. No alcohol background or easty aftertaste. Perfect balance of malt, gentle bitterness of hops and dark sugars. Everyone will find something enjoyable in this beer.

camoes (124) - PORTUGAL - SEP 24, 2014
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 5C). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L4013. AROMA: sweet and pleasant malt aromatics with some toasty, bread crust and caramelly notes. no hop aroma and very faint dried grapes aromas. APPEARANCE: dark Brown color with ruby highlights. good clarity. average moussy head with dark ivory color and good retention. TASTE: very nice flavours ranging from a plethora of melanoidins with toasty notes and bread crust. sweet malty background with a clean lager profile without any kind of diacetyl. low bitterness. finishes semi-sweet. PALATE: medium-full body with moderately-low carbonation. smooth. OVERALL: a very nice exemple of a traditional doppelbock which is delicious and a feast for the senses.

suurjuust (1068) - ESTONIA - SEP 21, 2014
Dark brown beer, small beige head. Nose is yeast, chocolate notes, malt, caramel, slight metallic edge. Flavor is fruity-malty, caramel, noticeable alcohol presence, dry and bitter finish with lingering bready notes. Lacks that plentiful malt character for me.

Bottle pour. Pours super dark with a cream tan head and a roasted malt aroma. Toasty, bready malt flavor with some hints of banana and dark fruit. A touch of smokey flavor as well. New style of beer for me, and I enjoyed this a lot. Good beer.

Moravius (503) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 20, 2014
Flasche (33 cl). - Tiefdunkles Kastanienbraun, üppige hellbraune Schaumkrone. - In der Nase dichte Malzsüße, Kaffee, Rosinensüße. - Im Antrunk starker, gut gesüßter Kaffee, Röstmalz und Karamel, dazu eine vornehme Fruchtigkeit (eine Andeutung von Pflaumenmus). Schwach rezent, dicht und schwer im Mund. Der Abgang ist leicht trocken, etwas rauchig und bringt wieder Mokka, Lakritz und ein wenig holzige Herbe - für Hopfenaromen bleibt hier verständlicherweise kaum Platz. - Perfekt ausbalancierter Doppelbock mit vornehmen Röstmalz- und Bitterschokoladearomen, den man erst so richtig schätzen lernt, wenn man etliche „verbockte“ Böcke verkostet hat. Was natürlich fehlt, ist die reiche Fruchtigkeit obergäriger (belgischer) Starkbiere - hier muß ein untergäriger Doppelbock einfach passen.
