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 yearís 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.

Oh its certainly good, vibrant color, frothy head, and the bottle is in fact adorned with what looks like a goat of sorts. Iím not yet convinced this is the greatest Doppelbock. It is very sweet, and incredibly wet to the mouth at first, the finish is in fact dry. Iíll give it another couple of goís at 1st place, but my heart lies elsewhere Iím afraid.

Draught. Dark brown with a rich white head. The aroma is smoky and the flavour consists of smoke and is caramel like sweet.

"Wow what a beer. The head was huge and lasted till the head. Dark brown, not black with a sweet smell and taste. The mouthfeel is amazing so smooth and creamy. Malty with a hint of fig mabye, and as it warms has a little flavor of burnt coffee. "

bottle. Pours dark brown with a moderate, rapidly fading head. Very pleasant malty aroma. Sweet, roasted malt taste with character of coffee and chocolate, nice full mouthfeel. Finish of roasted malts and a bit of alcohol, lingers for a bit but not too long. Iím glad to say it doesnít have the cloying burnt malt finish that a couple similar beers I tried had. It seemed a bit lacking in complexity, though to be fair Iím not usually a big doppelbock fan.

Pours very sexy. Malty to the core, alcohol is very well balanced w/ the rich choc./malt/ caramel side. Good, was a bit pricy for whats inside.. maybe overrated?

Pours dark brown, almost black with a thick beige head. Malty, spicy slight woody aroma. Lots of spices in flavour as well with a little acidity. Somewhat alcoholic. Burnt, sugary finish.

Poured out a deep redish brown with a light brown head.Aromas of raisins and chocolate and the alcohol is well hidden.This is pretty good,but also sweet and you have to be in the mood for this one.

A 100? Wow, I donít see that. Definitely a great beer but not a 100. Heavy heavy aroma. Lots of dark fruit in the nose. Maybe even some grape??? Beautiful puffy head. Iím generally not a bock fan but this is tasty. So far, this and La Trappe are the only bocks Iíd drink again. My rating will be skewed higher due to the aroma & appearance category.

Bottled. Dark brown. Rich head. Chocolatey, smokey nose. Smokey in flavour at first, smooth mouthfeel, then chocolate takes over. Very good balance here. Long, wonderful caramelly finish.
