Purchased from Biggs Beer Wine and Tobacco in Vancouver, WA.

Poured from a 330ml standard brown bottle into a pint class.

Pours a fantastic dark brown with a creamy off-white head!

The aroma is wonderful, has strong maltiness that is accented by caramel and toasty notes with little or no hop aroma.

Flavor is out of the park and right on for the style. Low hops add to the sweetness and let the malt flavor dominate in grand style.

Mouthfeel is full bodied with a low carbonation feel.

Overall this is an outstanding beer, strong, rich and a must for any doppelbock fans!

A..Beer looked as it should; a nice dark amber in the glass with no real head to note. A slight lace left behind while drinking.

S..smells as a dopplebock should. A good amount of roast Malta with some hints of chocolate and coffee.

T..More complex than I was expecting. I consider Salvator the gold standard when it comes to dopplebocks, but I admit this offering is equal in quality. Great malt taste.

M..Easy enough to drink. After a glass there is a slight dryness from the alcohol, but not much.

O..Great dopplebock, well worth the time. Superb.

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.
