My first review! Brutal!

I had this in a snifter. It's almost black in color, with a slight amber hue and a thin tannish head that quickly recedes into a vortex-looking swirl in the middle. The scent of caramel and molasses with a hint of coffee greets my nose.

Tastes mostly of chocolate, toasted caramel and molasses, with minimal hops presence. Halfway down, the coffee becomes somewhat evident. I can taste a small yet sharp unidentified sweetness on the sides of my tongue. I want to say that it's butterscotch. This is very smooth, with little carbonation. Very drinkable and good to wind down to after a long day of whatever tires you out.

I would definitely like to have this again. Very impressive!

Pours a dark and murky brown color with shining bright red highlights. The beautiful brew is crowned by a one-finger creamy off-white head. The moderately high carbonation levels send out an aroma of light grainy malt with gentle hints of dark fruits. The aroma is echoed in the drink with a sweet malty flavor supported by delicious dark fruits and subtle alcohol warmth. The body is light and allows the tastes to flow quickly throughout the palate. The finish is light and quick as the sweet malty brew fades into a crisp clean lager end. The only thing left is a touch of lingering warmth and a great memory!

11.2oz brown bottle

Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock was a deep mahogany color with a tan head. The head had good retention and left some spotty lacing. The aroma was toasty with toffee and caramel. The taste was very malty with molasses, dried fruit, and chocolate. It was sweet upfront with a semi-dry finish. It was medium-full bodied with nice carbonation. Drinkability was excellent. This beer is definitely worth trying.
