COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This is a full bodied doppelbock with a creamy half inch tan head. Dark earthy body with tiny tight bubbles and a beautiful balance between hop and malt. Sweet and grassy while yummy roasted hops shine through with a drawn out finish. Well carbonated and elegant.

JorgeLee (1377) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle from Kris Wines. Awesome bottle, label and goat. Deep brown colour, thick white head. Superb beer, thick chewy malts, toffee, bread, licorice, slight tar maybe treacle. Balanced well, enough hop to offset any sweetness. Alcohol present but not intruding. Lovely, and even better drunk after a 4-0 playoff victory at Wembley. Come on you whites!

Very dark brown with ruby highlights. Dark tan head, very creamy. Smells of toffee and licorice, very bready. Mouthfeel is thick and silky. Tastes of dark caramel, hints of raisins. Really, really nice beer.

Finally got around to rating this one. From bottle at La Vache Folle. Dark brown coloured, with a light brown head. Nose is caramel, slight smoke, liquorice, bread, maybe a hint of chocolate. Flavour is caramel and toasted malts, dried fruits, bit of spices. Medium carbonation. Fairly sweet. Finish is bready, fairly sweet, toasted malts. Nice.

minutemat (2252) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
330ml bottle from Saveur-Biere.com. Pours a deep hazy brown with receding tan head. Lovely smooth doppelbock flavours, rich and comforting and a decent malt sweetness. Could’ve easily sunk a pint of this.

mateuszk (348) - Poznań, POLAND - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle. Dark amber, red in colour, white head. In aroma malty, melanoidin notes, also bread, dried fruits and some chocolate?! In taste caramel, toasted malt, fruitsŁ raisins and plums. Medium bodied, oily in texture, medium carbonated with medium bitterness at the end. Really well done beer.
