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: MAR 6, 2005 WOW! Poured a very dark Coffee like Colour. The aroma was sweet. The Flavour explodes with Coffee/Caramel/Sugar/Cream/Butter/Cheese/Cream. The Foam stays with you the whole way. The Alcohol Mingles with the Sugar Flavours so Subtley that the cocktail like flavour is seductive. This is one beer that lived up to its hype. Salud!

Coffee colored, oatmeal head that lingers till the bottom of the glass. Thick on the palate. Roasted malts, black coffee and toffee flavors. Good balance between sweet malts and smoky flavors. A lot of complexity going on. A dopplebock that lives up to its name.

Mmmm, a lot of flavor coming out of this one. People look at me strange when I say cheesecake, but I definately got a rich creamy texture from it. It doesnt pout as dark as you would think, but the body makes up for it, very smooth, barely a bite, and again, a nice rich finish. Another thing that is nice about Celebrator is that the alcohol is not obscene, so you can have a couple.

Wow so much to tell, so much to tell. Just smoked a cigarette for no reason in below freezing temps. Went out on the balcony at 2am after studying for operations midterm. Had to removes some snow with a spoon just to get the door open. The cigaraettes I have were left in my car by a homeless man after he stole the quarters i kept in there for tolls and such. This double bock is amazing with an aroma of malty molasses and toffee. Very strong flavor with hints of chocolate and caramel. Very sweet flavors that me in my drunken state cannot identify after the smoke and doritos im currently eating. However I know this is a good beer because it warms my chest as i feel like im about to pass out. YAY

Dark teak in color on the pour. Gorgeous beige head rest atop of a extremely viscous almost oil like body. Immersurable quality for the likes of me. One of the very top of the very best beers that I have ever tasted.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2005
Dark color, hints of red. Little light brown head. Sweet caramel, malty and mildly alcoholic aroma, typical for doppelbocks. Medium to full bodied, surprisingly high carbonation. Some nuts in flavor, sweet caramel comes up strongly. Flavor ends with dry bite in tongue, bite coming from hops and carbonation.
Earlier Rating: 11/24/2004 Total Score: 3.6
Dark brown, almost black colored, little brown lasting head. Aroma is roasted and chocolate with some sweet toffee, nice one. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is roasted with chocolate and brown sugar ending. Strong alcohol coming up also in the end, maybe even too strong. Nice warming winter beer with better aroma than flavor, 6.7% ABV could have been hided little better.

Bottle pored almost pure black with a medium chocolate head that lasted the entire beer with lacing that hangs in sheets! Aroma of roasty malt and coffee. Flavor of roasty malt, coffee and spice. Very, very good and easy drinking.
