Style: Doppelbock

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.70%

Availability: Year-round

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.

From notes.

A: One finger mocha head. Ruby red. Good retention, tight lacing.

S: Cinnamon, dark toffee, some dark fruitiness. Graham cracker.

T: Dark, fresh fruit. Roastiness comes through in the end. Bit of chocolate, big malt. Touch of candied ginger and a definite phenolic fruit. Almost like banana.

M: Medium bodied. Ample carbonation.

O: Exemplary example. Very complex for the style.

This is my first Doppelbock and it has set the bar extremely high.

Appearance: It pours a deep dark chocolate brown but shows a beautiful amber color when held up to the light. It has a nice full head.

Smell: The beer smells rich, sweet, and malt forward. Hints of molasses and dark, dried fruit dominate the nose.

Taste: It has a medium mouth-feel and the light carbonation makes it smooth, creamy and very drinkable. Hop bitterness is almost nonexistent, however, there is a very slight spiciness that mellows as the beer warms. It is malt forward, with cocoa like flavors and a dry finish. It is a sweeter beer but the dry finish enhances the drinkability.

An absolutely wonderful beer.
