Poured from an iconic 12 oz. bottle, complete with miniature plastic ram, in to a small glass mug. The assertive carbonation yields a massive, mounded head of foam that resembles an oven-rising baked biscuit. The beer has a deep chestnut brown appearance with tawny accents. It smells of fresh-baked whole grain bread and a vague notion of sweet nuttiness. Earthy accents of soy sauce and molasses are present in the nose as well. The flavor is very malt-forward, but steers well clear of the cloying sweetness that so many other malt monsters convey. There's some dark fruits, with hints of subtle tart black cherry. A mild earthy hop profile perfectly accentuates the distinct Bavarian flavors. Suggestions of smooth, sweet dark coffee and minerals linger in the aftertaste. The texture of the beer is phenomenal. Rich and creamy velvet perfection. Oh so easy to savor. For such a hearty beer, this is sooo easy to drink. It's simply a masterclass. I've yet to try a dopplebock, foreign or domestic, that I put in the same league as Celebrator. From the iconic artistic style, to the wonderfully smooth texture, to the refined Bavarian taste, this one is just incredible. The definition of world class.

A: crystal clear; brown with ruby clearly evident; 1 finger light brown head that receded to a thin collar; OK lacing;

S: all malt - caramel, prune, toffee;

T: rich; molasses all the way; a little roasted/smoky grain at mid-palate; flavor faded relatively quickly; ABV completely hidden;

M: smooth; medium to full bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: very enjoyable; the roasted/smoky note I got at mid-palate is out of place for the style, but I liked it;

Dark red in color. Smells chocolatey. Tastes chocolatey as well. There is a hint of that lager flavor. Nice amount of carbonation and fairly creamy. This is quite tasty.

I got more dark fruit znd raisin than I was expecting..even some faint cinnamon,,,.definitely has the hefty bread mouthfeel and flavor you'd expect due to some great malt notes...a little burnt sugar and molasses in there as well...a meal replacement beer for sure...

Just an incredibly well-conjured beer. The perfect embodiment of the style.
