Ayinger's Celebrator is definitely a fantastic brew. I must admit, I love doppelbocks. This is a TRUE bock. Definitely tasty, not too heavy, and great to behold!

Appearance: Poured into a Ayinger Celebrator 'chalice' and certainly looks great. Pours a darkish brown/bordering on black like color. One and a half fingers of nice, delicious, puffy, creamy head!

Smell: Wow. Smells great. I smell raisins, figs(for sure!), toffee, and perhaps vanilla in there as well!

Taste: A very very rich flavor. This is one of the best doppelbocks around. I must admit that I have yet to encounter a doppelbock that can stand toe to toe with the original, Paulaner's Salvator, but this is a fine brew in its own right. The taste is incredible and the carbonation is not too heavy..in fact, it's not heavy at all! No bitter aftertaste in the least bit!

Mouthfeel: Wow..very creamy, very full bodied!

Overall this is a fantastic doppelbock. I would recommend anyone that loves quality beer to get a hold of a "four pack" of these. Whereas they are rather pricey..it is TOTALLY worth it.

Nice touch on the goat(bock) on the bottle. Save them! They look great!

Celebrator is a great winter time beer. It goes great with a t bone steak, with a sirloin steak, round cut steak..in fact, it goes great with meat period! I would also recommend having a few as a dessert. Heavy on taste and quality, definitely worth a purchase!

12 oz bottle from Belmont Station.

A: Aggressive pour yields a cola type head with the fizzle to match. head dies immediately. Very dark brown with an edge of purple. Some legs.

N: Biscuit and bread. Some caramel and toffee blend through the middle. Sweet pecan and toasted tobacco. Lots of clove. Bread in a glass.

T: Tobacco, leather, toffee, caramel, and rye bread. Has a very deep base. Lots of the barley, and a nice sweetness. Earth and dirt balance the sugars. Clove and nutmeg. Lots of flavors for a 6.7% beer. M: Clean and filling. I think we can all agree this is a definition of the style. O: What can I say that hasn’t been said by more experienced reviewers? The classic everyone ought to regularly appreciate.
