COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, hops, yeast.
A beer that has a dominant malty taste. This beer’s origins in a monk’s recipe are reflected in its heartiness. The Pope of Beers, Conrad Seidl, describes it as: “Almost black with a very slight red tone, a sensational, festive foam and truly extraordinary fragrance that at first summons up visions of greaves lard. The first taste is of mild fullness with an accompanying coffee tone, which becomes more dominant with the aftertaste. There is very little of the sweetness that is frequently to be tasted with doppelbock beer.” The Ayinger Celebrator has been ranked among the best beers of the world by the Chicago Testing Institute several times and has won numerous medals. 18.5°

chinhaez (439) - Ouray CO, Colorado, USA - MAY 10, 2024
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2024 Bottle. Dark brown pour with a foamy khaki colored head that has good retention. The aroma is sweet malts, dark fruits, anise and perhaps some chocolate liqueur. The taste is has in the forefront Dark fruits, followed by anise and rye breads. The palate is medium in viscosity and the carbonation soft. Finished short and dry. Overall: decent dopplebock--The dopplebock against which all others are compared and judged. Loved it. paired with some Reggiano cheese and that pairing was not so great as it overpowered the beer.

solar (190) - - APR 29, 2024
UPDATED: APR 30, 2024 Pours dark chestnut brown with moderate light tan head. Recedes densely, resolving around rim with excellent retention and lacing. Aroma of dark malts, bread, biscuit, chocolate dark fruit, raisins, and a wee bit of yeast funk. Taste much the same which intensifies (especially the roasted malts) when the beer is warmer. Full mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Semi-bitter dry finish. An excellent example of the style, and a first class beverage all the way around.

pindolaire (704) - SPAIN - FEB 24, 2024
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2024 En copa Teku, color marrón oscuro, prácticamente negro, rojo rubí al trasluz, corona de espuma beige cremosa de buena retención, precioso aspecto. Aroma a malta tostada, fruta madura, chocolate con leche, pan negro, madera... En boca es de textura sedosa, algo oleosa, trago dulce de entrada con notas de maltas oscuras, caramelo, fruta madura, crema de moka, frutos secos...y con final ligeramente amargo y levemente seco donde afloran matices tostados y levemente torrefactos. Una gozada de cerveza en letras mayúsculas, la mejor en su estilo.

brexitgiftshop (324) - GERMANY - DEC 7, 2023
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2023 Great label. 19th century prancing goats in awe of foaming brew horn of plenty. Tasteful colours muted. Red brown blue. Ruby dark porion. Thin 'ed. Smooth creamy great texture. Nose of organic tomato fertilzer rich. Bovril, alcohol well hidden. Like a meaty main course. Heavy. Bitters on the side. Big taste. Ayinger scores!!! Also bought the 0,5 Winterbock which RateBeer says is the same! Seems odd they'd make same beer under 2 nsmes. The Celebretor lent beer is a posher 33cl bottle. Any thoughts? I preferred it.
