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.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2009 Sampler from bottle. Odd that I’ve not managed to run across this until now in my rating career. But onward: darker in color than the standard Salvator. A lot of complex malt flavors; the other tasters in my homebrew club meeting suggest Special B and 90° crystal malt. Some raisiny notes. Not a lot of hops to stand up against the malt sweetness. Still quite enjoyable.

Dark translucent amber pour, short tan head. Nose is currants and toffee. Lightly bitter, more sweet. Middle is dark sweet bread, dark fruit (plums?). Finish shows a dry coco. Balanced, beautiful brew.

0,33l bottle courtesy of SinH4. An incredibly tasty yet complex German doppelbock, quite dry and short, but you could drink this one without stopping for hours.

Nice malty, sweet honey and little bit of chocolate aroma. Very well balanced, really creamy and soft. Kind of hard to believe it’s a doppelbock. It’s like a bite of black bread, no alcohol at all in it’s taste. Really nice sunday afternoon beer.
