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.

DrnkMcDermott's rating

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2009 Sampler from bottle. Odd that I’ve not managed to run across this until now in my rating career. But onward: darker in color than the standard Salvator. A lot of complex malt flavors; the other tasters in my homebrew club meeting suggest Special B and 90° crystal malt. Some raisiny notes. Not a lot of hops to stand up against the malt sweetness. Still quite enjoyable.

Bottle from Redmond’s. Delightful stuff. Burnt cocoa is prominent, some malt and caramel as well. Depth is great, smooth mouthfeel as well. As your glass goes down and it takes on a bit more heat, extra layers (sweetness especially) come out...but the bitterness of this guy means it was delightful straight out the fridge, whereas I often find this style of beer really wants to be a bit warmer than it’s often served.

15/20 A bit like a Belgian dark beer. Lots of flavour with chocolate notes.

Aroma of coffee and malt. Taste of coffee, caramel and oak. Medium heavy body. Enjoyable.

Robe is very dark, thin white head. Nose on caramel but with a white-y creamy note, not too sweet. Attack is light, bubbles turn into a creamy texture immediately, body is medium. Palate on cream and caramel. Cream coats the palate. Very gourmand, and still not really sweet. Finish is light and gourmand, bitterness is almost imperceptible. Very nice.

Bottle. Mitchell’s Wines, Sheffield. Clear, dark ruby red. Tight, lasting, leggy, beige head. Nose has mix up Sunday vine fruits. Some plum stone. Some prune. Some yeasty, granary bread malts. Vinous and malty. Taste is sweet and vinous. Some light bitterness. Mouthfeel is perfect. Smooth and silky. Foamy carbonation. Dry toward the finish, with soft, fruity sweetness. Very nice.

From a Christmas case. Pours dark brown. Like malty sticky toffee pudding. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ectuohy27 (1154) - ESTONIA - JUN 3, 2017
Drunk cold, it was rather one-dimensionally boozy over-roasted malt, though it improves dramatically at around 55-60 degrees. Definitely good but perhaps not on the level it appears to be (11.2 oz bottle, Tallinn)

3.6
CraftyHare (65) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - JUN 3, 2017
330ml bottle from Naples supermarket pours cola brown with thin tan head. Earthy aromas of malt, dried fruit and soil. Milk chocolate, brown sugar, roasted malt, toast, cream and herbal characters. High carbonation and depth of flavour hides the 6.7% alc vol reasonably well. Long sweet finish with only a hint of bitterness. Delicious.

tanel025 (118) - ESTONIA - JUN 2, 2017
Aroma is alcohol, malt. Dark brown beer with beiger head. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, slight roastiness. No hops. Medium to very sweet, almost no bitterness. Excellent beer. Slightly sour aftertaste, but only slight.

3.8
Mishnok (282) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2017
Is this the best German beer? Hmm...well it's certainly pretty decent. Dark reddish brown with no head and mild carbonation. Aroma is malty, maybe a bit of banana yeasty nose. Taste is caramel malts, no bitterness, a little sweet perhaps? Flavours are definitely there in the palate ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
