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.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2005 I think the commercial description says it all. It is truly a great dopplebock. I also find hints of chocolate and caramel in it. It is very dark in color, very black with just a faint ruby color, allowing very little light to pass through and a ruby tan thin head that stays. I would definitely recommend this beer to anyone with a taste for fine beer. I cant wait to get some more, the best dopplebock by far, very silky smooth from start to finish. very light bodied. Found it at the Cork N Bottle in covington, KY.

Brownish ruby with a slowly diminishing tan head. good retention. vinous, fruity, and a thickly malty aroma. Very malty with a little hop twang. Strong sweet malt with some caramel and bittersweet chocolate. Nicely coating and clean. Moderate carbonation. nice, clean, and very drinkable. A very nice malty beer that I enjoyed a lot. A good example of the dopplebock style.

Dark brown with a half inch of dark tan head. Aromas are spice (cinnamon) and toast, with a banana fruit background. Toasty tastes with some coffee. The hops provide complexity and add floral, organic flavors. Palate is even and balanced, with a dry finish and rather light mouthfeel. A bit cloying, from the toffee charcter at the front end, however. Still, from sweet to dry, this is an excellent and versatile dopplebock. Glad I had it.

OK. I know Ive had this, and I remember it being outstanding, but I didnt make notes. So, I guess Ill just have to go get another one so I can rate it for real.

A little sticky for me. I loved everything else about this beer. Nice head, complex, yeasty, fruity and spiced. Just a great beer. Food anyone?

Searched hi and low for this one. And it was well worth it. Found it @ Eulogy in philly. Fruity aroma with a fantastic finish.

Pours a cola colored brown with a thick foamy head which goes away quickly. Not much carbonation visible, or maybe its just hidden in the darkness. Nice, sweet, rich malty aroma, not much going on in the hops department (sorry hopheads). Taste is initial sweet maltiness, with a little dark fruit in the background. The finish is dry, spicy, and a little bit smoky. Overall, a smooth, complex & very tasty brew that lives up to all its accolades!

Savad (58) - Den Bosch, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2005
Dark brown, on the verge of dark ruby. Off-white head, leaves a good lace. The head diminishes, yet easily builds up as you jolt the glass. Buttery aroma. Caramel, dough, sweet bread, butterscotch. The same butterscotch is in the flavor at first. Roasted bitterness and coffee come in the finish. Oily, medium to full.

An absolutely lovely little dopplebock with the fine chocolate undercoating that Germans do so well and just the merest association with smoke and floral flavors to take the edge off of the dark brew.

a very dark beer with a slight scent of smokey malts. A very smooth drinkable beer with hints of chocolate malts which gives this awesome beer a sweet finish all the way to the belly. As my grandpa DiFelice would say.. "I wish I had a neck like a giraffe!"
