Color: Rich amber, similar to a cola, quite dark, but allows light to penetrate. Demonstrates nice red tones in bright light.

Head: Hesitant development, chunks up like a rootbeer float. Beautiful caramel color, lively, bubbly, height fairly low, slides down the glass and eventually dissipates. A top layer lingers through the entire drink.

Aroma: Maple syryp, peanuts, pecans, biscotti and muted hints of licorice, cherries amalgamate into the scent of a classic malted german beer. Aspects remind me of Indian spices found in tikka masala- an aroma that makes it impossible to walk past Bombay Bistro without pausing; likewise you stop often during the experience to smell the rim of the bottle. This is my best attempt, but Celebrator has a singularly unique scent that I cannot find words to describe or a simile with which to accurately capture it.

Texture: Medium body, ultra smooth.

Flavor & Balance: Tastes precisely how it smells. Conspicuous malt flavoring, maple, milk chocolate and nuts remind you of eating a nut goodie bar without the sickening sweetness. Acquires nice fruit tones like the skin on a bing cherry. All the while, never forgets it's origin, and maintains the identity of a beer. 100% pleasant through and through, a very easy drink, I can have one while I am cooking and another with my meal, although I would never only have it with food and forego the complete flavor experience. Great sipping beer.

Sustained Taste: Progressively smoother, taking on more licorice, chocolate and bing cherry characteristics over time, without losing it's maple brown sugar goodness. A craver...every few months you will have a craving for a celebrator (one would be shocked at how many goat pendents I have!)

Pours a nice amber brown with a tan head. Easy to see that it is clear. Standard doppelbock appearance.

Lots of toasty sweet breads in the nose.

Raisin bread dances on the palate washed over with a generous dollop of warming alcoholl. Lots of different but subtly sweet fruits are present. Huge grain character with very malty german barley. Hop bitterness is light and hop character is just mildly spicy. Finishes a tiny bit sweet and warm. Like biting into a huge loaf of freshly baked fruit bread that gets you toasted.

Thick bodied, just as it should be, with adequate carbonation to keep the flavors moving.

A fantastic doppelbock, for sure.

Poured into Tilburg's Dutch Brown Ale glass.
A: Pours dark brown and creates large foamy brown head. I can thank the tall glass for the huge head, this beer looks good.

S: Toasted malts not too strong but smeels amazing, maybe some kind of delicious baked cookie.

T: Taste is phenomenal. Like it smells but tastes sweet throughout. Good to the last drop.

M: Smooth in the mouth and on the palate and slightly creamy.

O: This beer is incredibly drinkable, I would like to see how a six pack would do over a nice dinner. A "world class" beer, it is overall one of the best of the category. I plan on collecting every ram trinket I get.
