WOW! Chocolate, Coffee, Fruit, Malt....etc, etc. A very nice beer deserving all kinds of good adjectives dolemike1 (1289) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2001
Sadly enough, i was not able to finish this beer tonight at the bar. However, that was due to a sudden stomach ache and not because i dont like this brew. This has a nice dark color and malty aroma, and a strong, strong malty chocolately/toffee flavor. I think i may enjoy it more the next time.

It probably deserves a five, but at this point I just don't think that I can justify it, because I need more to compare it to. michaelm18 (118) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 12, 2001
I finally had this beer tonight and let me tell you it is the best ^$*&%#%(@^% beer on the planet!! Nothing even can compare to this God of beers. Smooth finish with an intense aromatic taste. It has a beautiful dark color that has to be admired. If you can find this, drink it now. I was lucky to drink it on tap. Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock is the best beer ever!!!

Holy malty. I really like this beer. Beautiful color, and a great aroma to match.

Wow! The presentation is amazing - dark reddish-brown, great clarity for such a dark beer and a wonderful head. The maltiness is overwhelming, yet very pleasant with the chocolate characteristics you would expect from dark malt. The aroma seems to be an extension of the malti, heavy character of the brew. The mouthfeel on this beer is sensational - full of body and complexity. I'm not a big fan of the style, but this dopplebock had everything I would expect in great quantity. Exceptional. jstu9 (403) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2001
Excellent beer. Great appearance, great taste. Probably the best I've had recently. Sammys (427) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 30, 2001
Much better than Spaten Optimator. Mine did have a huge head, but it dissipated quickly. Big malty, chocolatly aroma, equally wonderful taste. Very slight hint of bittering in the aftertaste. The bottle was neat too, it came with a plastic goat figurine tied to it. FOAMer (45) - Bartlesville, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 19, 2001
Good dark color, nice hint of red when held to light. No haze. Not much of a head on this, but that is to be expected with this much alcohol. cartel99 (19) - Ohio, USA - FEB 10, 2001
Malt and alcohol aroma!! Nice Munich malt aroma. Not much of a hop aroma, but with this that is to be expected.
Malt sweetness upfront and nice alcohol warming in the finish. I love the taste of Munich Malt!!! No hop bitterness, only there to balance the sweetness.
Nice mouthfeel, full almost chewy! This beer has a huge malt bill and it shows in mouthfeel!
This is a world class beer!
Coffee and fruity nose, beautiful deep black color. Pours with a fizz, but is not over-carbonated. Not an exceptionally weighty head, and a lighter mouthfeel than would be expected. Taste is sweet and warm. Marshmallow tasting when chewed. Wonderful stuff, this beer.
