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.

Pours a deep deep ruby-brown, with a thin off white head. Nose is cereal and toffee. On the palate I get a roasted barley, moderate toffee sweetness, and slight hints of soy-sauce/salt. Mouthfeel is clean, crisp and light. Great amount of carbonation.

Overall an amazing beer I'm very happy to revisit. I seem to remember more pronounced sweetness from the last time I had it.

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.
