look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

appearance - comes in a neat little brown 12oz-i mean 11.2-oz- bottle. one of my favorite bottles, im not sure why, maybe its the artwork and the little goat, or maybe its because i know whats inside.
pours thick and really dark, classic dopplebock.

taste - extremely good. i find its noticeably better sipped out of a glass than from the bottle. my first try i was a bit diasappointed, but it has grown better and better with each bottle. extremely rich, complex, malty, flavorful, straightforward dopplebock with no hoppiness or fruityness, just pure malty goodness. slight presence of coffee and indeed a nutty presence as well. perfectly balanced. this is my kind of beer.

drinkability - i didnt want my last bottle to stop. i wanted to savor every last drop of it. im giving it a 5 for drinkability also, its hard to put the thing down, you could chug the whole damn bottle so easily, or just as easily sip it away. this is the best that beer gets(for me anyway). 5's across the board.

UPDATE 8-09: have recently delved into dark beers again. tried the korbinian, a rival of celebrator. NO DOPPLEBOCK IS CLOSE TO THIS BEER. CELEBRATOR WINS

The classic example of the style to which all others should aspire. Robust and powerful without being overpowering.
