Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock pours a deep, dark brown with a thick tan head from a brown 11.2 ounce bottle that had a plastic goat strung around the neck of the bottle. There is a rich, sweet, dark malty aroma. The flavor is smoky and malty. If one doesn't have a taste for smoked beers, this could be a challenge. The mouthfeel is just right, a bit on the thick side. A world classic.

While very dark brown, you can still see that it's crystal clear without a trace of cloudiness, some orange comes out near the glass bottom, has a very pretty and fine head which dissolves pretty fast. Invitingly sweet nose of coffee ice cream, caramel, butterscotch and chocolate covered raisins, blends in banana, ginger spice, pecans, all malt with no real hoppiness, very well balance nostril presence and staying power. Medium-bodied, the carbonation definitely smoothes out the sweetness and allows for more structural balance from the hops. Brown sugar, caramel, butterscotch, hard coffee candy, here more of a roasty character. Raisin, cherry fruit comes through. Traces of orange peel as well. Maintains a fresh smoothness throughout.
