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.

FistFullOfCats (163) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 11, 2005
Bottle. Pours darker than cola brown with a generous, creamy tan head. Aroma of caramel, burnt raisins. Not very pleasant. Good gracious, first taste is dominated by roasted coffee flavor. Hazelnut and bitter raisins come out after a few sips, but it is still sweet at the same time. Feels nice and thick, and sorta kicks you in the back of the throat on the way down, though not unpleasantly. Finishes with the coffee bitterness, a little hop. What a strange beer. I dont think Ive never tasted anything like it before. Im torn. Its complex and defiantly interesting, though I cant really see myself craving another anytime soon. I do, however think that any beer lover should try this once. Im going to have to try it twice. Extra points for complexity and uniqueness.

mrnutsnbolts (204) - Berkeley, - NOV 9, 2005
Bottle. Pours a dark, quasi-opaque reddish, black-brown with a head that quickly dissipates to a ring around the rim. Smellsof roasted malts, caramel, ripe plums. Tastes slightly burnt, dry roasted coffee, malty, slightly metallic. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

The plants in my house are all hung with little goats! Smooth, dark, creamy, this is a great example of a double bock. Rich black, beige head, always a nice moment when I get to have one of these again of, "Oh, right, I do like lagers too!"

A very fine brew indeed, this is double dock with a delicous kick and wonderful flavor. Smells alright and looks ok, but the taste is what wins, nice nice brew...i need a refresher soon!

Among the smoothest tasting beers that I have ever tasted. After taste was very pleasant and left me yerning for more. The taste was very full and was appealing to nearly every taste of beer. The dark look of this beer is kind of decieving. It never really had that really dark taste that I thought that it would. Great beer.

awebster (165) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 31, 2005
The aroma of cloves at once turned me off to this beer. When I tasted it, the strong finish of cloves left a sickly-sweet taste in my mouth that was not appealing to me at all. At least it had good body.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 27, 2005
Deep ruby body is topped with a huge, glitter-filled head. Do these guys know how to handle malt or what? Aroma is slightly fruity with a great roastiness beneath. Notes of sweet fig dominate the nose. Velvety smooth mouthfeel is a great vehicle for the comlex malts in the body. Roasty, smokey, sweet and bready - its all here, blended wonderfully. Wow.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2005
On tap at Firkins, Libertyville, IL. Black-hued doppelbock having long lasting giant tan colored head with excellent lacing. Soft aroma with hints of roasted malt. Medium-bodied that starts with smooth creamy light sweet malt flavor with bits of roasted malt, toffee, burnt caramel, and coffee touches and finishes dry with roasted malt flavor. Well done Ayinger.

zathrus13 (1776) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2005
Dark brown, with a light brown head. Aromas are sweet malt, raisins, dark fruit, and molasses. Flavor is much like the aroma, with raisins and molasses leading the way. Creamy mouthfeel, with a medium to heavy body. Thanks to JohnnyFlake for this bottle.
