The Ayinger with the plastic white ram on the outside poured a black color with a nice 2 to 3 finger foam head with some solid retention.

The aroma was a coffee and malt smell. It had a soft hop flavor with a excellent bitterness. It had a chewiness to it and was oily and semi dry. I was really impressed with how this one was built. This is my first time having the Celebrator.

Bottle review of 23OCT02...
Enjoyed as part of the "Bocktoberfest" Alewife and I put on.... Lovely dark brown/garnet color, with a fine, tan head and nice lacing. Superb roasty, malty, chocolate aromas abound... Pretty full-bodied, and pleasantly smooth over the tongue. Exhibits a rich, semi-sweet, roasty, bitter chocolate flavor. Not as sweet as Salvi or Sammy... but A-1 in its own right! Verrry drinkable!!! Zum Wohl!!

overall: 4.5
appearance: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | mouthfeel: 4.5 | drinkability: 4.5

On-tap review of 10MAR02...
This baby on draft has a nice dark brown to almost black color, with a small creamy head. I pick up notes of bitter chocolate in the nose. Real nice fullness and smoothness. Taste is super, but a bit more on the bitter side than Salvator or Sammy. Nice flavor with the roasty chocolate finish. Goes down well! (4.5/4.5/4.5/4.5/4.5 = 4.5)

Prosit!
