Celebrator has a creamy head of tight bubbles contrasting beautifully with its profound dark robe. It is full-bodied and velvety from half a year’s 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.

Great malty texture. Good color and head (darker than picture) - one of the best finishes of this type of beer.

Pours you dark brown Blackish with a small light tan head. Aroma is of a nice sweet dark fruit with a bit of malt. Taste is nice you can really taste the fruit maybe a little bit of sweet malt. Overall this definitely lives up to its reputation as a doppelbock really good.

330ml dark bottle, filtered, from BeerWulf for less than £3.00 Fuck me this is good. I do like a malty beer, and this is a malty beer. It has all those wonderful beer flavours I love - the bread, the malt, the treacle, the licorice, the burnt toffee, the rich plum cake, the chocolate, the coffee. Some wimpy modern "craft" brewers put flavourings, like coffee or chocolate, in their beer to get this sort of taste, but proper traditional real brewers don't need to - the flavours are all here in the malt and the yeast. Magic. Fucking amazing. I could drink nothing but this for the rest of my life and I would be happy.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2017 Brune oscillant entre transparence et opacité, avec des reflets rougeâtres. Une mousse beige, ferme et crépitante. Des parfums typiques d'allemande, une saveur sucrée légèrement amère de caramel et sucré brun. Rhaa lovely!

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2017 bottle at home bought from honestbrew.co.uk. This is the first time trying a beer from Germany and also a style that I've never heard of before. This has tastes of fig and caramel and pours a very dark brown colour. This style reminds me of Belgian Dubbel. so much going on with it

Review: 0,33l. Bottle of Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock: ABV: 6.7% vol

Nice brown bottle with a lovely old fashioned design and striking label, very nice. Also have a cheapish looking ornament, in the form of a plastic white goat, with it tied around the neck, which is a bit silly, but there you go. A goat of course representing the fact that it is a doppelbock.

On pour got a darkish brown coloured beer, almost black in fact with purple/reddish looking highlights, with a nice decent sized tan head, some good carbonation going on too, and overall the appearance looks pretty damn good. It all looks very appetizing, nice n frothy.

The smell is equally as good. Got a wide variety of smells, was very malty, got some fruity smells of raisins and prunes, and with strong hints of alcohol.

Loved the smell which was strong and pleasant on the nose.

Taste, got some nice creamy tastes and very filling mouthfuls. Nice hoppy aftertaste which can be felt at the back end, nice and manageable.

Can taste the fruits, and, of course, the sweet malts and caramel.

Nice enough, a slow burner and definitely one to relax with and sup.

If there was one negative is that I did get a little bit of dryness in the mouth.
The alcohol is also well hidden, very well hidden.

It’s alright, is very tasty for sure and I got a fulsome feeling. A nicely balanced beer with a lot of flavours to be had.

On the second pint the alcohol was finally hitting me, got the beery taste. It is 6.7% after all, but it is manageable and not overpowering.

Over all yeah its a good beer, not bad and a nice and tasty brew, very drinkable and not very sour or bitter.
Was a bit tipsy after the second pint, but it was easy enough to drink overall.

In der Nase nussig malzig. Im Trunk malzig, cremig, brownaleig, dann leicht bitter. Hinten holzig, Trauben. Hohe Drinkability.

Beer from local beer shop. Dark red colour with small and not persistent head. Aromas of sweet dried fruits and caramel. Taste of caramel, sweet malts and toffee. Medium carbonation. The alchool is very well hidden. Wonderfull beer.

Wow. Årets bedste øl. Masser af fylde og velbehag.Tilpas med bitterhed og sødme.

Bought as "Winter Bock". Pours with a decent head that vanishes quite quickly though. Color is deep amber/copper. Carbonation seems "sharp". Aroma is fruity, caramelly and dark. Plums and dried fruits, fermented fruit mash, very fermented malt. All in a "dry" and "compressed" way and not in as overwhelming way as in some stouts. Clear and pure aroma. Palate is a bit more to the dry side, which is good if one prefers dry as oppposed to oily. Taste follows the aroma. It's a bit weaker presentation of the aroma and additionally there's a general alcoholic "yeastiness" as a side note. It's not yeasty though, it's merely in the taste. An elegant overlay of alcohol adds a bit of sharpness and body. Faintish burnt hints felt on the tongue in after taste. Faint herbal notes. Very uncompromised and clear-aroma, clear-taste beer. There are no surprising or odd side tastes. A quality presentation in the style and could easily become a "reference beer".

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2017 0,3 litre Bottle from Systembolaget Charlottenberg. Redish brown with little offwhite head.
