A master piece of its style. Pours a solid dark brown with a tan head. Flavors of raisin, caramel with a buttery mouthfeel. Feels full bodied. Rich and fruity. A classic beer that is a must try for anyone. Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock is a testimeant that a well crafted beer can be enjoyed for ages.

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a goblet glass.

Pours a very dark red colour, going into black with a small but decent head.

Smells quite rich and dark, fruity almost like port.

Taste reflects the smell mostly, though its a bit darker, with a hint of yeast and a crisp, clean finish. Nice warming booze taste too.

Overall, quite a tasty beer. Far too drinkable.

A: Pours a 1/2 inch off white head that then settles to a thin layer with good lacing. Colour is dark ruby red with a low visible carbonation.

S: Raisin, figs, dates (sort of like a good Christmas fruit cake), deep malt characters with a bit of booze.

T: Molasses, rum soaked raisins, malt, hint of bread and a very well balanced bitterness.

M: Low-med body, great carbonation that cleans up the palate. bitterness is well balanced with the malt.

O: This is a great dopplebock. The carbonation is great and would pear well with a fatty pate and/or cheese. Bitterness to malt is well balanced.

This is a very good Double Bock

Comparing it side by side against Samuel Adams Double Bock. I prefer this one over the Sams. Sams flavors are overly sweet, with simple molasses flavors. The Celebrator is a much more complex beer, far less sweet, nicer balance of hops and malts

dark brown. tan head.

sublte aromas. smells of burnt molasses.

burnt molasses. for a doppelbock, nice balance between the malt and hops. Not too sweet. Couldn't really detect the type of hops used.

nice effevescense (sp?)

would definitely have this Double Bock again. Reminds me of a slightly less heavy imperial stout.
