A master piece of its style. Pours a solid dark brown with a tan head. Flavors of raisin, caramel with a buttery mouthfeel. Feels full bodied. Rich and fruity. A classic beer that is a must try for anyone. Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock is a testimeant that a well crafted beer can be enjoyed for ages.

4.33/5  rDev -0.2%

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a goblet glass.

Pours a very dark red colour, going into black with a small but decent head.

Smells quite rich and dark, fruity almost like port.

Taste reflects the smell mostly, though its a bit darker, with a hint of yeast and a crisp, clean finish. Nice warming booze taste too.

Overall, quite a tasty beer. Far too drinkable.

4.1/5  rDev -5.5%

A: Pours a 1/2 inch off white head that then settles to a thin layer with good lacing. Colour is dark ruby red with a low visible carbonation.

S: Raisin, figs, dates (sort of like a good Christmas fruit cake), deep malt characters with a bit of booze.

T: Molasses, rum soaked raisins, malt, hint of bread and a very well balanced bitterness.

M: Low-med body, great carbonation that cleans up the palate. bitterness is well balanced with the malt.

O: This is a great dopplebock. The carbonation is great and would pear well with a fatty pate and/or cheese. Bitterness to malt is well balanced.

This is a very good Double Bock

Comparing it side by side against Samuel Adams Double Bock. I prefer this one over the Sams. Sams flavors are overly sweet, with simple molasses flavors. The Celebrator is a much more complex beer, far less sweet, nicer balance of hops and malts

aroma:
dark brown. tan head.

smell:
sublte aromas. smells of burnt molasses.

Taste:
burnt molasses. for a doppelbock, nice balance between the malt and hops. Not too sweet. Couldn't really detect the type of hops used.

Mouthfeel:
nice effevescense (sp?)

Overall:
would definitely have this Double Bock again. Reminds me of a slightly less heavy imperial stout.
