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 year’s 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.

Bought @ Steilacoom Wine and Brew. Anyone who hasn’t 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.

Oh its certainly good, vibrant color, frothy head, and the bottle is in fact adorned with what looks like a goat of sorts. I’m 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. I’ll give it another couple of go’s at 1st place, but my heart lies elsewhere I’m 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. I’m glad to say it doesn’t 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 I’m not usually a big doppelbock fan.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - JAN 3, 2006
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.

Tejas (1006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 1, 2006
A 100? Wow, I don’t 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. I’m generally not a bock fan but this is tasty. So far, this and La Trappe are the only bocks I’d 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.
