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.

First of all, some bitchass im with decided to just click "back" as i was writing a worthy review to this excellent brew. Im too lazy to redue it. But the creamy, thick, tan head, coupled with a delicious fruity and caramel flavor makes me want more of this delic.

Poured dark reddish brown with small tan head. Aroma is like an SS Imperial Stout with fruit and molasses hints. Tasted some raisin in there along with caramel and roast. Smooth finish with no trace of alcohol going down but a nice warming in my stomach told me it was indeed there. Just a very complex beer and it all blended well together. Highly impressed by this and enjoyed every drop.

Thanks Bunkypop for hooking a brother up multiple times! Pours a dark body, black, with a mocha coloured head, that is thick as nails. Aromas are smokey, malty roasted nuts, chocolatey coffee, and meaty spiceness. Weird! Taste is smoked nuts and malt, with some campfire notes hitting everywhere. Nice complexity I cannot describe. Finish is smoooooooth, dry, alcohol not even here a trace!!! Thanks Steve!

A great looking beer, nose of caramel, honey and roasted malt. A very sweet caramel flavor with very mild hop bitterness. This is not my choice of a traditional Doppelbock but it is in the ballpark. This beer would be ideal for initiating the Budmiloors crowd to a great Doppel.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2005 This is a good beer. Its not one I would drink very often though, its more of a special occasion type of beer, especially with its higher alcohol content.

Wow what a beer. This is what beer is supposed to be. Dark pur with a nice tan head. A touch a sweetness going down with no aftertaste. Great carmel taste with just the right amout of maltiness. If you try any beer try this one.

Thick, dark beer. Pours nice and with a nice head. Sweet on the tongue and burns just a little going down. Tastes of nuts mix with fruits before going down with a pleasant, chocolate taste. Despite being a solid beer, I expected more from such a celebrated bottle... could have used a higher alcohol percentage.

It has been a while since Ive had this one, but I can remember that it looked and smelled amazing but didnt really thrill me in its flavour. Ill have to revisit it and probably rerate it, but in the meantime this is how it stands.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 This double bock is amazing with an aroma of malty molasses and toffee. Very strong flavor with hints of chocolate and caramel.Dark teak in color on the pour. Gorgeous beige head rest atop of a extremely viscous almost oil like body. This is one great beer...update, all true above but I must have had two to many on my 1st rating
