Poured into a pint glass from a 11.2 fl. oz. brown bottle with a little prancing ram trinket around the neck. No freshness date to be found.

A - Pours a deep molasses brown (looks nearly as thick!) Yields a finger of light tan head that is extremely creamy and rich-looking. When held up to the light it has some light brown and amber highlights.

S - Strong hints of brown sugar, molasses, cocoa nibs and toasted grains.

T - Rich and sweet up front. Lots of molasses and dark chocolate character. Incredibly creamy and smooth. A slight bourbony booziness is present along with some bitterness from the hops and dark malt. This beer is good, but almost overkill on the sweet factor for me (but that is just the nature of the doppelbock style)

M - As noted earlier, creamy smooth texture with mild carbonation. Medium to thick body. Leaves the mouth feeling sticky like I just ate a stack of pancakes and syrup.

was never into bocks or doppelbocks, but that has all changed. first, i got the sam adams double, which i loved. so i picked up a 4-pack of the celebrator when in atlanta. damn, this is german beer, my friends.
dark brown with a thick tan head that does not go away.
smells of brown sugar and burnt caramel, a hint of alcohol.
taste of sweet malt, just a little hop in there somewhere.
very creamy, thick and full in the mouth.
i doubt that i could have too many of these, but i'd try.
fall and winter, i'm looking for more of this.

cheers...

This beer marks my 100th Review. Thought the occasion was worthy of something special.

Appearance: Poured froman 11.2 oz bottle into a pilsner glass. Brown with a red tint to it. Tan head, rose about 1 1/2 inches, then settled down to a cover over the liquid. Minimal lacing.

Smell: Mostly roasted malt, burnt malt aroma with a sweetness about it, a little bready.

Taste: Malty profile, toffee and caramel flavors. A little bite at the end, either hops or the alcohol coming through.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth, creamy medium to full bodied. Lightly carbonated.

Drinkability: A great beer to sip on and enjoy, savoring it as you go. Its easy enough to drink, but definintely not a session beer.

A very good beer that I will likely have again, for a special occasion. I think this one would be great around Christmas and the New Year.
