Good dark beer. I was lucky to find it here in Hawaii. A must try if you like dark malt caramel coffee kind of beer. It has a rich taste. I'm not a expert reviewer I just know a good beer when I taste one. If you don't like dark beer then don't try it, but if you like porter style/ coffee/ malt then a must try.. Just my opinion of course.

330ml bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip

A: Jet black, opaque, small tanned head, not much retention, minimal lacing.

S: Prune, grape, oak, dark chocolate, biscuit, burnt caramel and some
diacetyl.

T: Tawny port was the overriding taste, molasses, dark chocolate, lots of roasted barley at the finish, some bitterness. Hint of a boozy burn as it warmed.

M: Smooth in, coarse out because of the booze, low carbonation, heavy chewy texture.

O: Oozed class, would love to make a loaf of bread with this. I’m also intrigued to know what a year of aging would do to this.

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.
