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 1, 2005 First of all the label rules, and that little plastic goat thing is awesome. Beautiful light brown head and almost completely dark body. Smell Raisons, Figs, Vinous notes, little bit of chocolate, and alcohol. Beautiful full mouth feel. Definitely get some roasty smokyness, a bit of spiceness, some nuts and a dry, bitter, slightly sweet finish. Huge malt presence is evident as well, which I like. Very complex and delicious brew

Draught: Smelled sweet and choclaty, with lots of malt scent. Dark brown pour with medium tan head and good lacing. Tasted like pure malts, and maybe a little nutty. I could not drink this, thought it is not a style I typically enjoy. Still, I was able to appreciate the complexity of the brew. Just not for this hop-head.

Its a good doppelbock, with a better roastiness to it than other doppels Ive had. Its not as sweet a beer as St. Victorious from Victory, but still exceptional. Could have used a bit more sugar and a bit more alcohol, but a good beer nonetheless.

This beer deserves some praise. Its a full, rich flavored beer which tastes like malt and bread. Its not the best beer in the whole wide world, but I like it. And Im always a sucker for funny labels as well. This ones got it! Cool.

Extremely dark, rich, and malty. The malt has a deep roasted flavor with a touch of sweetness. There is both hops and roasted malt bitterness and a distinctive yeast character. Very nice mouth feel.

Got myself this ($2.99 for 11.2 oz.), a couple of Salvators ($1.49 for 12 oz.) and a 750 ml bottle of St. Bernardus Abt 12 ($8.99!) at Wilburs Wine and Spirits in Ft. Collins, CO, to celebrate my birthday, and to compare with each other. Appropriately, Im starting the celebration with Celebrator! Opened the bottle at approximately 45 degrees F. Perhaps a bit too warm? Pours a lovely dark, almost opaque mahogany red-brown with a smooth tan two-finger head, that turns bumpy and thick and quickly diminishes to a small ring. Minimal lacing. First smell is of raisins, coffee, chocolate and some sugar: warm and inviting. A very rich aroma. First taste is rich, dark malt, and very very smoooth. By mid-glass, some of the spicey underflavors have come up. The taste takes on a clove almost peppery set. Long chocolatey, peppery, clovey aftertaste. Mmmm. Im sure there are some hops in there somewhere, but theyre well in the background -- just where I like them. So silky in the mouth -- you want to roll it around a bit. Next one I have will be on tap at the brewery just south of Mnchen. Prost!
