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.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2007 Pours dark brown/black with reddish tint. Thick creamy tan head, that recedes to light cover. Nice lacing. Aroma is dark fruit, molases, toffee, chocolate and a touch of cookie dough. Flavor is malty and fruity delight. Plums, raisins, molases, bitter chocolate, a touch of hops, some roastedness comes at the end. Finish is longish and dry, with a bit of warming alcohol. Texture is smooth and creamy.

Now I can finally see what all the fuss is about here. Has a very dark coffee, dark chocolate and molasses taste. The beer is very dark in color, but is suprisingly drinkable for a beer this dark. Balance is good. Before I knew it, I looked down and it was almost gone. Great taste that lingers. This is a very nice beer.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2006 Bottle, March 22nd, 2006 - Pours dark reddish brown with a fully receding tan head. Aroma is toffee, dark chocolate, roasting coffee, and raisins. Taste is smooth, subtle, and seductive. Quite bready and chewy, some roasted flavors to balance. Medium to heavy bodied with lush carbonation and mouthfeel. Ayinger is my favorite brewery, and has yet to let me down.

(Bottle) Pours very dark ruby brown, thin tan head dissipates quickly. So-so lacing. Aroma sweet, malty, prune juice. Starts with malty sweetness, finish is more bitter. Great beer, a bit thinner than I expected.

FuntonBunton (61) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 15, 2005
A very nice roasted aroma. Roasty flavor as well. Great balance in this brew. Small white head, slight carbonated feeling. Flavor is near perfection, my tastebuds are prancing and dancing and having a little party all over my tounge. And its not only a party its a status-9 rager. An excellently made beer.

sammy3D (141) - Lawrenceville, Georgia, USA - OCT 15, 2005
Super dark brown beer poured from a bottle with a nice creamy head. Sugar cane and maple syrup on the nose. Malty, roasty, toasty chocolate flavor with a hint on smokiness in the finish. The sweet flavor of this beer makes for a great after dinner treat.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 14, 2005
12 oz. bottle. Beautiful dark brown with a frothy tan head. Sweet malty nose with hints of caramel. Coats the tongue with roasted malt flavor that just lingers on and on. Sweet molasses finish with practically no hop bitterness in evidence. Doppelbocks just dont get any better than this.

bmanning (142) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - OCT 12, 2005
Pours a dark rubby brown with a huge tan frothy head. Has a sweet hoppy and raisin aroma with a bit of roasted malt caramel. Wow, what an incredible taste! This beer has a perfect balance of roasted malts and floral hops to make it simply delicous. Complex taste of molasses, raisins, banana nut bread, and a hint of chocolate. Great creamy feel in the mouth as well with soft carbonation. Excellent finish that leaves a lingering sweet smoky taste. Only negative is that it is slightly too sweet.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a reddish tint when held up to the light. Thin off white head. Very roasty and caramel aroma with some molasses coming through. Taste is more of the same, mostly molasses, toasted nuts and caramel. This is a very strong tasting brew, but very balanced. This is my first real rating away from the American micro community. Very good.
