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.

OnWisconsin (132) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2012
This beer had a nice dark brown appearance with a 1 finger head. Aroma was prunes, nuts, and maltiness. Taste had the maltiness up front followed with a hint of nuttiness following up with the malt backbone again. Had a nice mediu.m mouthfeel. This beer did improve a lot as it warmed up in regards to these favors really starting to come out.

Increible. Bestial doppelbock. Cacao. Densa. Dulce y amarga en justo equilibrio. Lágrimas de júbilo.😅

bonkiedeaap (798) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2017
Bottle from a liquor store near Leerdam, The Netherlands. The beer is very dark brown to black colored and has a cream colored and stable head, with very nice carbonation. The aroma is malty with notes of roasted malts and caramel, raisins, coffee and cacao. The taste is full bodied and sweet and starts with notes of roasted malts, toffee and caramel and goes to light bitter and dry with notes of coffee and chocolate and also a hint of spices. The finish is light bitter and dry with some warming alcohol.

DonGregorio (507) - POLAND - OCT 15, 2017
Bottle. Clear dark red colour, creamy tan head. Rather sweet aroma of toffee, caramel, light molasses, raisins, red fruits, some bread. Taste is medium sweet and light+ bitter, of toffee, caramel, bread, red fruits, light molasses, brown sugar, roast. Medium+ body, soft to average carbonation, dry finish. Quite oily and smooth. Very good, with decent flavour depth, but not as great as expected.

From the tap is pours a dark cloudy, nutty brown-black. Sweet and complex. Has a kick but well hidden with the fruit and chcocolate profile it exhibits. But better on draft. Catch it if you can.

Mr_Pink_152 (5412) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2017
Bottle from Real Ale Store, Newark. Deep ruby to mahogany colour with a tan head. Bread, fruity, roasted malt and floral aroma, sweet fruity taste. Medium to full body.

17Beer (403) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 3, 2017
330ml bottle with goat. Scents of malt, caramel and cinimon. Pours a rich dark brown with a tan big head that dissipates over time. Moderate lacing. Tastes of dried fruit malt and cognac and a slight sour edge to keep it from being one dimensional. Oily mouthfeel. Very nice and I am a sucker for doppelbocks.

LazyPyro (1471) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2017
0.33l bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a lasting creamy beige head. Strong dark malty aroma, dark fruits, caramel, sugar, liquorice. Taste is rich and malty, dark fruits and liquorice, sweet sugary caramel, hint of roastiness, light bitterness. Velvety smooth mouthfeel, medium body, soft carbonation. An astoundingly good beer, easy to see why it's best in its style.
