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.

Bottle purchased from AJ's Beer Warehouse in Henrietta, NY.

Poured into my Abandon Brewing snifter. Deep, dark brown. Looks kind of like a stout, really. 1 inch head. Small amount of lacing.

Smells bready and sweet, with some dark fruits, like plums.

Tastes pretty similar, with roasty bread like flavors, intermixed with sweet plum flavors. Gotta be one of the maltiest beers I've ever had.

Full body, low carbonation.

The classic and archetype for the dopplebock style, and one I always enjoy.
