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°

Pimot (397) - Castellón, SPAIN - DEC 16, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2018 Color marrón oscuro de reflejos rubí, espuma amarronada media de buena retención y residuo. Aroma a caramelo, maltas tostadas, toffee y especias. Sabor también a caramelo, pero añadiendo nueces, más toque especiado, sirope de caramelo casi quemado y pan tostado con notas a chocolate, café, frutas oscuras y vainilla. Gusto largo amargo suave balanceado con dulzor maltoso. Textura entre oleosa y chispeante, cuerpo medio-alto y carbonatación media. Una doppelbock con todo en su sitio y bien atado, buen balance de dulzor y amargor, gran riqueza de sabores y alcohol bien integrado. Fama merecida.

NeverBinge (285) - Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 9, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2018 Dark brown, this beer comes with a negligible head and a syrupy texture. The nose is massively malty, with a strong hint of madeira and prunes, notes of treacle and fresh dark bread. On the tongue, you get an assertive bitter-dry flavour with surprisingly little sweetness... beautifully composed. Coffee and a very delicate liquorice edge insert themselves into the finish. Without a doubt, this is a great beer!

DraftSensei110 (82) - - DEC 8, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2018 Un muy buen ejemplo de una buena Doppelbock. Es de cuerpo medio y baja carbonatación. Tiene un color negro con algunas notas rojizas. Aroma caramelo, chocolate y café. En boca es ligera, acuosa, destacando el caramelo, además de toffee y frutas rojas. Final seco pero agradable.

4.3
Suco (466) - Castellon, SPAIN - DEC 7, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2018 Color marrón oscuro con destellos rojizos. Dos dedos de espuma con excelente retención. Aroma y gusto en la misma linea, mucha malta, tostada y caramelizada, ciruelas, pasas e higos secos, Pimot, te lo copio pero es que lo clavaste, el caramelo del típico flan de vainilla, ligero chocolate, alcohol presente en el trago. Cuerpo medio/alto. Totalmente merecido ser la mejor Doppelbock del mundo.

davidfs (161) - Castelló de la Plana, SPAIN - DEC 5, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2018 En copa, cerveza casi negra con reflejos rojizos y un halo de espuma blanco hueso. Aroma muy extraño, encontrando muchas especias, aroma dulzón a caramelo quemado, cereales tostados, chocolate y café muy amargos, licor, y algo de licor. En boca, textura ligera y acuosa, con el típico amargor a caramelo quemado persistente en garganta. Presenta un sabor muy dulce a caramelo líquido quemado que perdura en boca, junto con cereales tostados, un poco frutas negras maduras y algo de café. Probablemente, la mejor Doppelbock que he probado, una gozada para los sentidos.

Rider0nTheStorm (281) - Ablis, FRANCE - NOV 30, 2018
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2018 Une sommité parmi les bières, number one dans le style... Noire, richement maltée, plutôt bien faite, une pointe d'alcool mème si elle ne titre qu'à 6.7%. Maintenant, ça ressemble à une porter plus ou moins, c'est pas trop mon truc.

WortMeister11 (42) - - NOV 27, 2018
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2018 Aroma: a host of caramel, toffee, molasses. dried dark fruit, some roasted malt, malty sweetness. Appearance: dark color with a ruby flash and good clarity, capped with a tiny quickly disappearing brown head. It has great design of the bottle, too. Taste: tons of caramel, toffee, and molasses accompanied with some dried dark fruit and roasted note of coffee. medium sweetness. medium-low bitterness. Palate: full body, very chewy, very little carbonation, medium alcohol sensation, dry in finish. Overall: this is a classic doppelbock and therefore, a highly malt-centered beer with minimal hop flavor and minimal yeasty character. It has been one of my favorites for a long time and is simple and pure, but tasty, satisfying, and highly recommended for winter nights.

DavidSvinth (711) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2018
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2018 Fra flaske. Mørkebrun med højt, tykt beige skum. Aroma af malt, karamel, let metallisk. Smager af karamel, chokolade, sirup. Medium krop, føles blød i munden, medium karbonering. God balance mellem sødme og bitterhed. Ikke det mindste sprittet. Meget vellykket!

I've been drinking Celebrator for years, and it is always among the best beers out there. It's always smooth, always tasty and always reliable. If I see this beer on the menu, it's pretty much a guarantee I'll get one.
