COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Michelob Celebrate Chocolate is Anheuser-Busch’s newest seasonal creation. Brewed with caramel malts, roasted malts and matured on real cocoa beans, this beer has a deep, dark chocolate color and aroma. Celebrate Chocolate is best enjoyed in a snifter, which brings the rich chocolate aroma toward the nose. Contains 8.5% alcohol by volume (ABV).

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 This blows. Bottle. Pours a dark red color, with a big fluffy white head, and quickly fading lacing. Aroma has some chocolate, and grain and oats, and some blueberry. Flavor has very distant chocolate. Malty. Boring. Slight sticky mouthfeel. Not drinkable at all. Would rather just have a Michelob Light.

I bought this as part of a gift set, however the two glasses were the only highlights. The chocolate lager poured a dark amber color with a minimal light tan head. The aroma hits you as you open the bottle. The scent of dark cocoa powder, sweet malts, milk chocolate and malted milk balls fills the room and your nose. However the flavor is more like canned chocolate syrup that overpowers the beer. The body was about medium with a creamy/oily texture. The carbonation was light and the finish was long with some bitter notes. Over all I think they should have spent more time on flavor than the odd bottle and fancy packaging. Well at least I got two nice glasses in the gift set.

Dark brown color with a medium head. Very dry cocoa aroma. Ditto on the taste, but slightly sour corny finish ruined it. The chocolate flavor itself is not to bad, though.

This was too imitation for me.The chocolate nose was of cocoa powder and the flavor was thin, almost like chocolate water.Finish was bitter.

FAIL. Macro brew trying to act like micro brew. No sir, not gonna happen. Sorry. Too sweet, balance is off. Bottle shape is pretty cool.

Dark brown w/red tints, small off-white head is mostly diminishing. Aroma is lightly malty with just a hint of alcohol. Flavor is sweet malt, sugary chocolate powder with a definite stale bitterness. Thin palate. Disappointingly bland for a so-called special holiday beer.

MrRain (472) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 9, 2008
24oz bottle poured into a tulip glass that came with the gift package. MCC pours dark amber with a medium creamy head that persists. The aroma consists of coco and dandelion stems. The flavor is heavily chocolate, much like carbonated chocolate milk. There isn’t a real strong beer flavor. The body is thin and the after taste lingers like Coco Puffs.

Bottle from neighbors collection. Red/brown pour Aromas of cocoa and I agree with others that say it smells ans tastes like some synthetic chocolate. It was thing and really not for me.

IrishBoy (3799) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 4, 2008
2006 24 oz bottle from Country Club Liquors; Nose of Nestle’s Quik, with some background vanilla and an odd vegetal note; clear reddish- brown with a small off-white head; flavor flavor of light chocolate, caramel, and a bit of alcohol. At least I got 2 nice snifters (can I grind off the Celebrate) with the bottles of Vanilla Oak and Chocolate for $20 in the gift set I had to buy!

This dark brown lager poured with a thin beige head. There is a blatant chocolate flavor over a rather thin roasted malt base, and a long dry finish. I give A-B credit for producing something a step above their standard atrocities, but they’ve got a long way to go.
