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 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.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 Deep dark brown colour, and brownish head, disappearing....seems Coca Cola! Very bready nose, sweet malts, licorice. The taste also licorice, definetely, sweet (but not too much) & bready, and some fruity notes, but also smoked. Medium/low carbonation, and alcohol ok, but it would fit better some more. Well-bodied beer, but I was expecting more since it’s so famous. But good and complex.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2017 Пиво чёрного цвета, но просвечивает на свету, пена не стойкая. Аромат выраженный жжено-кофейный. Во вкусе жженый солод, кофе, карамель, сухофрукты. Пиво плотное, но пьётся легко. Послевкусие с приятной жженой сладостью. Крепость ощущается.

N'étant pas un grand amateur du style, je ne pourrai pas dire que j'ai pris mon pied en dégustant cette Celebrator. Cependant fore est de constater les qualités de celle-ci que ce soit en terme aromatique ou d'équilibre pour un résultat à la fois frais et puissant, complexe et élégant. Belle robe brune limpide aux reflets rubis. Mousse beige peu présente et ne nappant pas la surface de la bière. Le nez est riche : pruneau, mélasse, caramel, cacao et pointe d'épices s'allient de fort belle manière. A la dégustation, l'attaque est de façon surprenante souple et relativement fraîche avec pourtant une amertume à 24 d'IBU, mais bien utilisée. En terme aromatique nous retrouvons exactement ceux présents au nez, avec cependant la présence marquante de l'alcool, bien présent conférant du caractère à l'ensemble. La seconde bouche, plus épurée voit l'amertume monter en puissance accompagnée d'arômes de cannelle et de mélasse et bien entourée d'une arrière bouche sur le pruneau, les épices et légèrement sur le café. La troisième bouche monte brillamment en puissance avec un alcool s'affirmant (celui-ci ne faisant pourtant que 6,7 % Abv) en complément de pruneau, de mélasse et d'une pointe de café pour un final élégant, long, sur les épices, le pruneau et le café. Belle construction avec une utilisation de l'amertume, de l'alcool et du malt remarquable.

Bottle from Red Elephant Beer Cellar in Truro. Pours a ruby dark brown amber colour with tan head which settles and clings to the glass all the way through. Aroma is rich malt, reminding me of the soft drink Super Malt (which I love) with some raisin, fig, dough and a touch of soy sauce. Taste is medium to strong sweet, lightly bitter but kept quite savoury with a slightly salty note. Nice and frothy in the mouth with a long and slightly smokey finish. Brilliant stuff!

flemmingwillum (1228) - Nysted, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2017
Rating #1222, flaske fra Boxbeers. Mørk mahognibrun, filtreret øl, med stort og stabilt, skyagtigt, gulligt skum. Kraftig aroma af ristet rugbrød, salt, peber, og let alkohol. Smag af rugbrød, let saltlakrids, og let alkohol. Noter af peber og lavendel. Medium bitter afslutning og ikke så voldsom som forventet. Meget blød og fløjsagtig med lav kulsyre.

beskid (194) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - AUG 29, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2017 Aroma of chocolate, burnt bread, nuts, nice and promising. Medium body, high carbonation. Sweet but not very much, solid malt base, some roast and raisins, notes of phenols. As good as a classic doppelbock can be.
