I poured from a 11.2 ounce bottle into my SA pint glass. A beutiful beer, dark with ruby highlights, and a thick white head. The aroma is spicy, with dark fruit and phenolic notes. The flavor is bready, fruity and spicy, all in one sip. The finish linges with sweeet dried fruit. Celebrator is medium bodied with adequete carbonation. The beer is damn good.

A - Dark, ruddy brown, barely opaque when tilted and held up to a light.
S - If any of you remember Faygo's Chocolate Pop, it smells like a grown-up version of that, rich and sweet and warm, a very comforting aroma.
T - Bitter but with a milk-chocolate sweetness that complements and even slightly overwhelms the balance but by only the smallest measure. It ends with a lingering whiskey-like complexity and then a clean almost mossy-sweet finish full of damp soil and toffee. (Can you tell this is a favorite of mine...?)
M - The beer itself has a rather light body. However, upon taking the first sip, one's mouth is coated with a wave of tiny bubbles. Once they dissipate, the more subtle notes of the flavor emerge.
D - As far as doppelbocks go, it's a pretty heavy experience. More Christopher Marlowe's Faust than whatever episode of The Simpsons happens to on, if you know what I mean.
Bonus - The fantastic little goat charms you get when you buy Celebrator. It's like the bygone era when Cracker Jacks used to have good toys in them...also, you get drunk, so, all in all, an awesome beer and a great experience.
