from notes
poured an opaque brown that hinted at ruby in the light, thin mocha colored head that faded down to a film rather quickly
smell was bright and fruity hinting at figs and grapes
taste once again the malts hint at figs and grapes
mouthfeel was smooth medium bodied with big tingly carbonation
drinkability was smooth and easy drinking and very highly recommended

(Bottle into mug) Poured a smooth dark brown with a half finger lighter brown head. The sweet malts dominated the nose, with a nice aroma of a cooked caramel with another strong sweetness that I just couldn't quite place. It is very rich in the mouth, as advertised, with a smooth carbonation that helped pull out some of the roast in the malt, enhancing the sweetness there. Be wary, as the alcohol was not really there, but at almost 7% it could smack you after a few. Finished with the same smoothness, carrying the sweet roast through the end. Highly recommended!

11.2 oz bottle, allowed to warm before being poured into my Brooklyn Brewery tulip.

Celebrator pours a bit short of solid black, as a good amount of ruby highlights are easily appreciable. About a finger and a half of khaki colored foam crowns the beer and shows a little bit of endurance. Lacing leaves something to be desired though. The nose is comprised of a very nice blend of biscuit and toffee aromas. The flavor profile has a bit more depth, as a light dusting of chocolate serves as a bridge from the toasty bread to caramel centerpieces, and a subtle dried fig note appears during the finish. If at least of those secondary characteristics was a bit more developed, everything would be just about perfect. The body is picturesque, full and sturdy, while remaining as far away from viscous as a sub 7% ABV beer should. Carbonation is nicely understated. It's easy to see why Ayinger's Celebrator is considered a classic version of the style.

A- Very nice deep red tint, deep dark chocolate, nice creamy caramel head, about 1-2 fingers worth.

S- Nice strong toasted caramel malt note, not a strong aroma to this beer, but there is a nice creaminess to the head that spawns that sweet roasted barely...

T- Really well rounded, a relatively low (in my opinion 6.7%) doesn't come through at all, nicely balanced, caramel, roasted nut, deep coffee character, chocolate...very nice.

M- Creamy, yet carbonated and smooth, very clean rolling character in the mouth, flows over the tongue like a liquid roller coaster, enticing and tantalizing all of the taste buds...

D- Nice and drinkable for a dopplebock, could certainly have a few of these on one of those cold- not quite spring days, with the hint of winter still in that air...nice and rich...well crafted...

A- pours a very rich brown with a rich creamy head that retains for quite a while, hangs on side of glass beatiffuly

S- rich malty sweetness, has hints of caramel, and a little bit of bannana-hef type smell

T- almost overwhelming taste of deep and rich malted sweetness, bannana taste is there but not as present like in smell

M- thick, but also very smooth, low-moderate carbonation

D- very drinkable, goes down very smooth with a sweet finish, could drink quite a few more of these, a great beer definitely a must try for you malt lovers will definitely buy again, bring on the oom-pah music
