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.

Panzerfaust (764) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, - JUL 14, 2012
330 ml bottle from Whole Foods Market, Coddingtown, Santa Rosa, CA. Pours a dark brown/burgundy color and a fine long lasting tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, rye, Pumpernickel, pistachios, hazelnuts, toasted grains, prunes, licorice and dark olives. Amazing. Taste is wonderful: Roasted sweetness and dark fruits shine on over an earthy, bready taste in the back. Incredible and refined! Towards the end I even feel a fig flavor counterpoint. Roastiness prevails over the caramel sweetness making this one a fantastically balanced Doppelbock. Medium to big body, not as bold as, let’s say, Andechser’s, but more refined. Alcohol almost unnoticeable. Smooth and silky in the palate. World-class and the best German beer I’ve tasted so far.

Huge dark brown foam, but frothy and fast disappearing. Dark amber transparent color. Bread and malty aromas with strong sweet malty taste on palate. Nice Doppelbock.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Bottle from giant eagle. Nose is dark and malty. Warm full body with malt and dark sugars. Great balance and smooth mouthfeel. Have had before and will do again. This and elevators are the best of the style.

Wow! My first double bock. Creamy, nice head that lingers. Thick body, but not too strong. Definitely will have again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. This was a nice one but would love to try this one again. Lots of nice roasted hints, sweet, even some light smoke.

Una delle migliori doppelbock che abbia mai assaggiato. Fama meritatissima.
