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.

This is one seriously tasty beer.

Pours from a bottle, almost no head. The beer is a deep, deep amber color, its almost opaque, but some red light manages to trickle through. The nose is nice and subdued, but some hints of candied fruit manage to work their way through.

The mouthfeel on this is great, it really gills the palate and just seem to be extremely viscous. Lots of dark flavors, very, very malty. This almost tastes like heavy rye bread in liquid form. It is absolutely delightful. Definitely a end of winter beer here!

Buy again.

pours a dark ruby, color, almost like Coke. A slight brown head which quickly dissipates.

Smell is a bit of fig and molasses, but very much a warm, rising dark bread. A bit of amber honey as well.

Taste is where this beer comes alive. The body is moderate to heavy with a pronounced malty, pumpernickel taste. certainly sweet with a slight bitter finish to offset the sweetness perfectly.

Realy nice beer, every bit as good as I thought it would be.
