A classic of it's style. Deep and rich in colour. Hints of chocolate & roasted oates. A dry, warm finish, this beer is simply the perfect cold weather beer. I wouldn't go through a winter without it.

This is with out a doubt the quintessential dopplebock that all others should be judged against. The color and pour were great, with a great off white head and a nice mahogony brown color. The smell was all malt with a bit of a brown ale smell to it as well. The taste reminded me a lot of a nut brown but with an even more pronounced malt character and a hint of spice in there too. As far as dopplebocks go this is the best I've ever had....and it even came with a plastic goat!

I've had a good bit of this beer lately, and as far as I'm concerned, it is the picture-perfect, model doppelbock. There's been a good bit of talk about Sam Adams double bock lately, but Celebrator completely puts Sammy to shame.

The flavor is wonderfully complex. There's a fantastic slightly-burnt quality to this beer. Rich maple syrup tones as well. Chewy and roasty and full bodied. Lovely mocha head and a deep dark body. I found myself craving this out of nowhere in the middle of the day at work today, and I'm going to have to go back to my local bar for more.

This beer pours a dark brown, that looks deep mohogany when held up to the light. It has a thick brown head that fades slowly, leaving many laces.

This beer boasts a strong bready malt aroma. Is has a sweet smell. Molasses or brown sugar. It has a dark fruit aroma also. Figs or raisins. A slight chocolate aroma is also present.

This beer tastes incredable. It tastes very toasty. Bready flavors are present. Also, chocolate and toffee are mixed in. I think this beer has a perfect mix of flavors.

This beer goes down smooth, leaving a creamy, toffee like aftertaste. It is low in carbonation, but it does not detract from the beer.

I think this beer would make an excelent session beer. It is only slightly high in alcohol. The flavor is wonderful, and would probably never get old. This is definately a world class beer.

Phenomenal!

Never had a bock or dopplebock, so I figured start with the best right?

This is delicious, it pours a dark, deep, caramel color with a fingertip size head that clings to the glass. Definitely pick up on the malty, molasses smell on the nose and taste the exact smell with each sip. The flavor lingers around the mouth with almost a creamy smooth finish. Very easy to drink, very easy to love.

Poured from a bottle I bought at the local liquor store.

5/5!!

Can't think of anything I don't like about this one...simply the best dopplebock I've had the pleasure to quaff! Gotta love those little plastic goat thingys...used to have a collection of them, why? I dunno. Reccomended stuff.
