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 years 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.

Very nice doppelbock. Hazy dark brown color with a brownish foamy head that provided average lacing. Nice roasted chocolate with hints of sweet. The feel in the mouth almost reminded me of a good oily coffee. I need to drink more of this.

A gift, 12oz bottle. Very dark brown pour, almost black with a medium frothy head that is visibly diminishes as you watch. The aroma is very malty, with molassesPeriod. This is not where my problem lay (however). Its this next part. The taste is much like the aroma, strong malt with a light bitterness that does creep through, but mostly malty molasses. Nothing else to say other than it has a slick body. This was just too much the opposite of IPA for me. Give me hops, not syrup like malt. Oh well, glad many of you enjoy it.

A very drinkable doppelbock, large head and brownish body, the aroma has some barnyard, green hay, and hops. The taste is somewhat smoky, burnt coffee, sweet, with a very slight sourness at the finish.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 13, 2006
Draught at Tylers in Durham, NC. Dark ruby brown color with ample tan head. Prominent brown sugar malt aroma. Brown sugar flavor in addition to caramel with a bit of citrus hops. Slightly sweet. Solid beer.

Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - JAN 13, 2006
One of the better Doppelbocks that I have had. Dark in color with the expected chocolate and a bit of a head. A few other sweet notes as well.

CMUBEERMAN (427) - - JAN 12, 2006
Pours a dark coca cola color with a thin and fastly disappearing head. Aroma is subtle with a bit of chocolate and a little bit of tangy sensation similar to what I get from an Anchor Porter. Mouthfeel is very heavy with an oily residual. Flavor isnt quite what I expected from beer rated so high. A little chocolate and a little smoke. Hardly any malt profile and it goes dry much faster than Id like. Still...its damn good.

SDalkoholic (2375) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JAN 12, 2006
Dark leather brown color with a thin film topping. Aroma is faint but sweet and candy like with chocolate and raisin olfaction. Flavor is the same but boring and simple. Not the best ayinger ive had.

Bow down. Get on your knees--even if the ground is covered in broken glass, AIDS patients, and dirty needles. This is your god now. Best in bottle, it has a very different taste on draft. It even has a little goat charm with each bottle, which provides endless entertainment when you have had one too many. To quote the kickass movie They Live: CONSUME.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JAN 10, 2006
From 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a deep, dark reddish brown with a fat light brown head.Nose is roasty, chocolatey malt. Flavors are rather complex - light roasted coffee, chocolate, malt - and they all blend together into a beautiful amalgam that can overwhelm the palate, leaving you craving for more. On top of all those beautiful flavors is a light, creamy mouthfeel that perfectly complements the flavors. Simply lovely!

wineandbrew (40) - Steilacoom, Washington, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Bought @ Steilacoom Wine and Brew. Anyone who hasnt tried Celebrator who is reading this should be calling your local beer shop to get one... This is one unique Dopplebock, not as malty as some and much more smoky, with nice mouthfeel and light chocolate malts. A great beer with food, without food, and any season... just vary the temprature you drink it at, 48 to 52 in the winter by the fire, and 40 to 44 in the summer with a Bratwurst!! Enjoy.
