I reviewed this beer tonight while listening to Slowdrive's "Souvlaki" album. If you like My Bloody Valentine, you should like Slowdrive; and if you like beer you should like this doppelbock. I poured the 11.2 oz. bottle into the patented Celebrator glassware.

A: This beer is a very clear dark brown, bordering on black, with some very dark red hues when held to the light. It was topped by a thick tan head with small compact bubbles which eventually faded into a thin lace on top. This would have easily scored higher if the head left more of an impression as the beer went on.

S: Celebrator smells strongly of toasted malt, with hints of caramel (sweet malty smell) and a slight bitter chocolate smell. There is virtually no hop aroma. Fits the style perfectly.

T: There is a sweet malty taste up front which is balanced (moderately) by bitterness. I really feel like the sweet malt character is balanced by a somewhat salty aftertaste. There is a roasted quality to the flavor which compliments the warming alcohol sensation.

M: Full-bodied. Smooth carbonation. A little bite towards the finish. What more could one ask for?

D: This is a delicious beer. Definitely my doppelbock of choice from now on. However, how many of these suckers could I drink in a night? Not many. The "liquid bread" that it purports to be fills one up quickly. Nonetheless, this is the go-to doppelbock, so that makes up for it.
