(Bottle into mug) Poured a smooth dark brown with a half finger lighter brown head. The sweet malts dominated the nose, with a nice aroma of a cooked caramel with another strong sweetness that I just couldn't quite place. It is very rich in the mouth, as advertised, with a smooth carbonation that helped pull out some of the roast in the malt, enhancing the sweetness there. Be wary, as the alcohol was not really there, but at almost 7% it could smack you after a few. Finished with the same smoothness, carrying the sweet roast through the end. Highly recommended!

11.2 oz bottle, allowed to warm before being poured into my Brooklyn Brewery tulip.

Celebrator pours a bit short of solid black, as a good amount of ruby highlights are easily appreciable. About a finger and a half of khaki colored foam crowns the beer and shows a little bit of endurance. Lacing leaves something to be desired though. The nose is comprised of a very nice blend of biscuit and toffee aromas. The flavor profile has a bit more depth, as a light dusting of chocolate serves as a bridge from the toasty bread to caramel centerpieces, and a subtle dried fig note appears during the finish. If at least of those secondary characteristics was a bit more developed, everything would be just about perfect. The body is picturesque, full and sturdy, while remaining as far away from viscous as a sub 7% ABV beer should. Carbonation is nicely understated. It's easy to see why Ayinger's Celebrator is considered a classic version of the style.

A- Very nice deep red tint, deep dark chocolate, nice creamy caramel head, about 1-2 fingers worth.

S- Nice strong toasted caramel malt note, not a strong aroma to this beer, but there is a nice creaminess to the head that spawns that sweet roasted barely...

T- Really well rounded, a relatively low (in my opinion 6.7%) doesn't come through at all, nicely balanced, caramel, roasted nut, deep coffee character, chocolate...very nice.

M- Creamy, yet carbonated and smooth, very clean rolling character in the mouth, flows over the tongue like a liquid roller coaster, enticing and tantalizing all of the taste buds...

D- Nice and drinkable for a dopplebock, could certainly have a few of these on one of those cold- not quite spring days, with the hint of winter still in that air...nice and rich...well crafted...

A- pours a very rich brown with a rich creamy head that retains for quite a while, hangs on side of glass beatiffuly

S- rich malty sweetness, has hints of caramel, and a little bit of bannana-hef type smell

T- almost overwhelming taste of deep and rich malted sweetness, bannana taste is there but not as present like in smell

M- thick, but also very smooth, low-moderate carbonation

D- very drinkable, goes down very smooth with a sweet finish, could drink quite a few more of these, a great beer definitely a must try for you malt lovers will definitely buy again, bring on the oom-pah music
