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.

500ml bottle. Light brown head. Deep dark brown colour, almost opaque. Aromas of roasted caramel malts, banana, raisins, toffee. Somewhat oily palate, medium carbonation. Flavor is sweet banana, wheat, roasted malts, sourish end. A little bit too sweet for my liking.

Schnabelhund (68) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2014
Pours black with a beautiful tan head of medium lifetime. A dark amber hue shines through when is held against the light. The nose is brimming with notes of dark cane sugar, caramel, nuts, and butteriness. Surprisingly, the roastiness of this beer doesn’t 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 (410) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 22, 2014
Completely black, can’t 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 (171) - 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.

Deep brown color, almost black with creamy head. Aroma is sweet caramel, brown sugar, fresh danish rugbrød. Taste is medium sweet. Brown sugar, raisins, dark fruits and some spices. A bit grassy bitterness in the finish. Soft carbonation, full bodied and smooth. Would be great as a winter warmer.

ninecats (131) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle, backlog. Pours dark brown with four fingers compact beige foam slowly dissipating, leaving some lacings. Aroma is fruit, mostly dried, banana, dark chocolate, hints of liquorice and some floral bitter hops. Above all very malty. Taste is elegantly malty and round without being thick as a porter/stout, dried fruit, unsweetened chocolate, a subtle bitterness. A slight smokey hint in the finish. Full body, soft carbo, smooth texture. This is fucking ace. Extremely well balanced throughout.

Darwenus (547) - Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2014
I’m not a huge doppelbock fan, but this one is really good. It pours dark, chocolate brown with a head that disappears quickly. The aroma is caramel, coffee, candied fruit. It all adds up to a smell that is something like Dr. Pepper. The flavor adds a really rich, chocolate malt at the finish. This beer is sweet, but not too sweet. It’s just right.
