Poured from a 330 ml bottle claiming it contains the "finest Bavarian double bock beer", and displays an illustration of two goats getting frisky with a helpless glass of beer. Upon pouring, an ample tan head formed on the blackish liquid, and soon settled into a thin blanket of foam, leaving fine lacing in its wake. When the beer was held up to a small lamp, the color is a deep and seductive ruby, like a dark red wine. This one was a sniffer, with an upfront nose of dark roasted malts, with perky and clean accents of ripe plantains and turkish coffee. Fantastic and well-defined character! The beer tasted delicioius as well. It started with a suprisingly bittersweet roasty malt wallop, and was soon joined by flavors of raisins, dark bitter chocolate, and coffee, with faint suggestions of cherry. The finish was fairly dry, with chocolate and cherry flavors lingering. I was highly impressed by the everything but the mouthfeel, which I felt could was just a little too thin. This problem is insigificant however, compared with its exceptional beauty, and the characteristics of smell/taste. After experiencing this dopplebock, I am not inclined to argue with the claim on the bottle.

From my beer journal. Reviewed on August 4, 2011.

A: Really dark copper/amber color. Pretty close to dark brown. Just enough hints of brown/red to keep you interested. This beer had a great 2 finger tan head that lasted nicely.

S: Nice raisins with toffee malts and a faint hop background

T: This beer floored me! Rich caramel malts lead to those rich dark fruits. Nice bourbon that interplays with a great bourbon flavor.

M: Nice full bodied beer. Good carbonation.

O: To be honest I had never even thought about trying this beer before I did The Naked Pint beer tour. So I was not expecting it to vault to becoming one of my favorites of all time. I could drink this beer anytime. Delicious.

11.2oz brown bottle

Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock was a deep mahogany color with a tan head. The head had good retention and left some spotty lacing. The aroma was toasty with toffee and caramel. The taste was very malty with molasses, dried fruit, and chocolate. It was sweet upfront with a semi-dry finish. It was medium-full bodied with nice carbonation. Drinkability was excellent. This beer is definitely worth trying.
