4.5/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

overall just fantastic beer, never get tired of it, especially not while there are still bottles around the house.

Real dark walnut colour nearly opaque with a great tan head that slowly dissipates leaving a decent lacing.

Aromas of molasses toasted malt and faint date scent in the background. Also quite a few doughy notes coming through.

Tastes like a combination of roasted hazelnuts molasses and some type of nut brittle all with a slightly darker tone too it. Finishes with a little bit of drying hops but not too much, definitely still a little sweet towards the finish as well as up front, but plenty of roasty balance to it.

Great smooth weighty feel to this beer, carries the intense roasted flavours very well thanks to this and goes down very very smooth.

For such an intense beer goes down very easily and carries the alcohol well.

4.23/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours translucent cola dark brown with 1/2 inch of off-white head that settles to a thick cap on top and leaves curtains of lace.

The smell is of cinnamon and other Autumn spices, coffee, cocoa, toffee and faint dark cherry.

The taste is of chocolate, coffee, Autumn spices, molasses and dark malt.

The texture is medium bodied with high carbonation. A steady stream of tiny bubbles rise up throughout the drink down.

A delicious mixture of many different flavors that all blend together to create an outstanding rich and decadent brew.

4.46/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Dark brown with ruby highlights, huge head.

Smell: Darkened toffee, sweetness, hint of coffee.

Taste: Sweet, dark chocolate, mild coffee. No alcohol detected, very well balanced, semi-dry finish.

Overall: Celebrator has been a favorite that I'm finally getting around to review. Leaves other doppelbocks in the dust with its balanced flavors and well-hidden alcohol. A great beer that can be enjoyed year round.
