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.

Bottle from Oddbins Rosemount. It has a light haze to the dark brown with a very thin light tan head. I was expecting a crazy tall froth so disappointed with that. Nose is dark treacle and dark fruit with a mild warm earthiness. Altogether an overwhelming sweet chewy roastiness. The taste has a light aniseed warmth and toffee smooth feel. A gentle smoky cask builds hefty strength. Lively fizz on a medium-slick feel. It’s very nice indeed. Heavy yet refreshing. Toffee apples on bonfire night sort of beer. Freshness of fruit. Layers of chewy sweetness and all the while a feint smoke filling the air. Fantastic stuff.

Finally got my little goat! Dark brown with a beige head. Great use of malts with lovely toasted flavours, caramel, bread, plus plum, fig, dry roasted peanuts, raisins and sherry. Medium body. Not my favourite style but easy to appreciate why this gets its 100 score.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2017 Thanks to SinH4. Deep mahogany color, fluffy tan head. A lot of melanoidin and pumpernickel notes. Alcohol greatly hidden. Very drinkable. Dark fruits come later.

Il me souvient d’avoir bu cette bière par une nuit froide de mars sur les bords du Rhin romantique. Quel souvenir impérissable, près du gros chêne, avec le passage des barges à longueur de nuit. Cette bière est un quasi mythe, dans le sens des trappistes belges. C’est bien sûr un incontournable de la bière allemande. Niveau abv pourtant étonnamment modeste de 6,7 % , mais comme un concentré, il fait bien plus que son niveau. Mon exemplaire était à 4 mois de sa date, mais pouvait vieillir sans avarie et avec bonheur. Couleur brun ultra foncé, aux reflets roux, à la clarté nette. Mousse brun clair, soyeuse, en nappage de surface constant. Arômes fantastiques de malt torréfié, fruit, bois, mûres, chocolat, café. 1ère bouche veloutée, à la merveilleuse entame café/bois, avec une pointe d’anis. Arrière-bouche longue, dense, complexe. 2ème d’une souplesse pareille aux eaux du Rhin, avec de la chicorée fine, et un rien de cannelle. Arrière-bouche qui affine cela en le distillant, tel un nectar de pur acabit. 3ème qui entre dans la légende, on est sur des saveurs d’une qualité irréprochable. Arrière-bouche de quadruple, pure et dure, avec une pointe d’épices très sélectes. Longueur qui a le choix pour développer un aspect ou l’autre... On n’a que du bon, non pas dans le cochon, mais dans les deux boucs, et dans la célébration ... Jambes huileuses, longues. Levure de grande facture (6 générations ont planché dessus …). Alcool étonnant … un vrai prodige que ce 6,7 qui pourrait afficher 9,7 sans se gêner !!! Finale diaboliquement bock. CONCLUSION : on jette les deux boucs de l’étiquette pour ne retenir que le calice au milieu d’eux, qui célèbre une grandissime bière .. Oh celebrator, que ta célébration est solennelle ...

Keg. A find. Aroma richly malty with molasses and toffee notes. Pours brown with ruby lights and off -white top. Little lacing. Taste is delicious with a blend of sweet malts and bitter hops and that elusive Smokey finish. Maybe Doppelbock will eventually displace Porter as my favourite beer ( a move might be required.)

Nice taste... One of the best lagers doppelbock... favourite of my father... caramel, a lot of maltz, choco note, imperial stout notes, coffee notes, extremely nice taste and balance... only 1 euro one of one of the best beers in the world lol... Ayinger winter bock is the same but 0,5l lol... i ASKED the brewers to send me some 24 bottles or even 48, or even 240 bottles... to Bulgaria... they told me - OK! and none called me again... :( one of the beers that i really hard found, many many years before. available only in germany, now available in the so many craft beer shops, but expensive,.,

Taste is toast, dark fruits, raisins, brown sugar, roasted malt, alcohol, some earth, and a touch of chocolate. Some roast lingers. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Silky mouthfeel.
