Notes / Commercial Description:
A beer that has a dominant malty taste. This beer’s origins in a monk’s recipe are reflected in its heartiness. The Pope of Beers, Conrad Seidl, describes it as: “Almost black with a very slight red tone, a sensational, festive foam and truly extraordinary fragrance that at first summons up visions of greaves lard. The first taste is of mild fullness with an accompanying coffee tone, which becomes more dominant with the aftertaste. There is very little of the sweetness that is frequently to be tasted with doppelbock beer.” The Ayinger Celebrator has been ranked among the best beers of the world by the Chicago Testing Institute several times and has won numerous medals.

Pours out a dark, raisin-like color with a thinnish khaki head. Aroma is dark dried fruits, brown sugar, bread, and a tinge of alcohol. Flavor is very sweet and just about mirrors the aromas, aside from an absence of alcohol in the taste. Brown sugar and raisins are big in the forefront with some roasty malts in the background. Mouthfeel isn't too heavy, but has a stickiness to it. Carbonation is mild and gentle. Really good drinker and one of the better doppelbocks I've had.
