Pours a wonderful deep dark chocolate with a 1/8” head that is here to stay. An abundance of dark roasty aroma dancing out of my Ommegang Chalice.

Taste is akind to the aroma – dark roasted malt, coffee and chocolate – more as it warms. The mild carbonation really lends to the overall enjoyment of the flavors in this one. I can drink one of these every day – maybe two – who knows.

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!)
