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.

Pours deep brown with a beautiful beige head. Malty aroma with hints of dark fruit. Incredible malt taste with a bit of tongue-prickling carbonation. Chocolatey notes in the middle. Very nice.

Nice deep amber body with a moderate beige head. Malty rich aroma with lots of caramel and a hint of roastiness and nuts. Flavor is silky smooth with lots of caramel malts and a hint of fruit in the background. Finish is semi-dry and slightly sweet. Great doppelbock despite the low alcohol.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2005 Ruby. Seriously stunning aroma of figs, grapes, caramel and chocolate. Just a deep and malty aroma. Characterful and complex malty flavor with notes of figs, fruits, caramel and chocolate. Very sweet flavor. Subtle hopping. Silky and coating feel on the palate. A very nice beer.

Poured a deep ruby red color...Big tan head that emits wafts of malts and darker fruits...Nice full bodied beer...What happened to all the fruit in the nose???NIce caramel maltiness to balance the somewhat bitter finish

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2006 This is a difficult beer for me to rate. I am not a huge fan of the Doppelbock style and have learned from experience that I hate the bottled version of this beer. It is far too vegetal for my liking. But I recently had an opportunity to try the draft. So with ratebook in hand I delved into a glass of draft. The beer poured a black color with a large fluffy brown head. The aroma was faint but had some pleasant sour malt elements. The flavor was heavy and malty with a bit of molasses. The finish is sour malt. The beer is surprisingly sweet and far less vegetal than the bottle. A decent draft.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2005 Re-Rate, Jan 1, 05. Dark brown pour, small tan head. Wonderful rich malt aroma, chocolate, toffee, and sweet. Nice body, initially sweet, ending dry. Sweet roasty malts, chocolate and toffee again, with a little alcohol, good body. Nice rich flavor. Definately one of my favorites!
