11.2oz brown bottle

Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock was a deep mahogany color with a tan head. The head had good retention and left some spotty lacing. The aroma was toasty with toffee and caramel. The taste was very malty with molasses, dried fruit, and chocolate. It was sweet upfront with a semi-dry finish. It was medium-full bodied with nice carbonation. Drinkability was excellent. This beer is definitely worth trying.

Thanks to BigLove for this addition on our first trade....
Pours a dark brown color with a full finger and a half of light tan head...disappears quite rapidly and produces very little lace.
Nice aromas...rum raisins, a hint of smoke, and roasted malt.
A very pleasant taste and perfectly balanced for the style...an earthy flavor and not overdone in any one category. All of the things detected in the nose make their way into the taste and the mouthfeel, while thin, is very smooth. Carbonation is perfect and this one goes down oh so easily.
Alcohol is nowhere to be found...
I can see why this one gets so much praise...one of the best I've had and one I will go to on any given occasion.

I have been drinking this for about a year now nice chocolate color tan long lasting head nice lacing excellentlacing nice smooth palate coffee and molesses with a slight bitter after taste this brings back fond memories when I was in the Army in Germany in a little town of Illishiem in 1970 sitting in a guest house having a few this is one of the best beers I have had in 30 some years. This is the beer I have been looking for. If there is one better would some one let me know.this is the only beer from my (ratebeer.com) that at this time I have around 278 beers rated that I have reated all 5's

Pours a dark dark brown color with a 2 finger tan head.
Aroma is massive dark fruit, malty, cherry, and fig.
Taste is extremely complex with raisins, cherry, coffee, and just enough malt to balance it out. Also some bready flavors and maybe even a hint of vanilla.
Mouthfeel is very nice, coats every part and lingers slightly.
I'm very pleased with this beer.
