look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Brown ruby color with a constant thin off-white head.
Malty aroma with notes of caramel, dark chocolate and earthy hops.
Delicious flavor, elegant and with character at the same time. Taste of toasted malts, earthy hops, dry fruits, brown sugar but perfect sweet level, plums and some pines. Aftertaste is dry, bitter and malty.
Medium to full body with low carbonation. A classic mistake of some beers of the style is not to conceal the alcohol (or be harmonic), and here is seen nowhere.
Definitely the best Doppelbock I tasted so far. This should please both malt and hop lovers, even though it is perfect balanced (and not a balanced over extremes). No short cuts and still a great outcome. Celebrator was a well-deserved name. And this should pair nicely with a broad range of food, especially meat or something that can stand to it.

this is just a really good doppelbock.
poured from a 12oz into a duvel tulip
pours a dark brown with a 1/4 inch head. coffee notes in the smell and in the aftertaste also.
thick, heavy mouthfeel but it doesn't overwhelm and its quite pleasant.
really great doppelbock, probably not the nest i ever had, but right up there. definitely try this one, great intro to the style.

Enjoyed a Celebrator tonight with a grilled flatiron steak and baked potater. What a treat. It's hard to imagine a better brew to suit my taste (although it is such a rich beer I don't see myself drinking more than one or two at a sitting). This beer has a rich brownish-black appearance and pleasant aroma. The mouthfeel is like drinking milk although the taste is nothing like that. The taste is startlingly complex with so many recognizable pleasant flavors all at once. This beer goes down smooth and clean with no distracting after taste. It can be matched, but I don't think I've had better!
