12 oz bottle, poured into a pokal glass.

A- Pours a dark brown color with ruby highlights, produces a thin khaki head that leaves spotty lacing.

S- Nice toasted malt aroma with caramel and some fruit and raisins.

T- Big malty sweetness, toasted grain and caramel, some hop bitterness becomes more evident towards the finish, considerable booziness lends some sweetness as well.

M- Medium to full body, carbonation is nice but the feel could be better.

O- Doppelbocks aren't really my thing, if you like them then you'll probably like Celebrator, it's not a bad beer but there's something about it that isn't clicking with me.

A: deep brown color with a sizable tan head that leaves some froth.

S: banana and dark fruits along with sweet malt

T: again fairly heavy on the banana, but has a nice sweet and malty taste to go with the roasted flavors.

M: medium-heavy body with a pleasant carbonation that is just perfect for me. Not overwhelming or harsh at all, but gives the body a bit of a lift, still leaving it feeling smooth.

O: excellent beer, but I'm not a huge fan of the style. For the price, there are better beers to be had. Had this one at a bar on a chilly night, and it was great.

Reviewed from notes.

Pours out a deep dark (yet clear) brown with three fingers of fluffy tan head that lasts for several minutes, leaving behind some lovely curtains of lacing on the glass. Medium body and carbonation levels, silky smooth texture.

Smells of dark crusty bread and all kinds of milk and baking chocolate, faint aroma impressions of a comforting childhood mug of hot cocoa with mini-marshmallows floating on the top and birthday cakes... It's not often a beer actually makes me feel nostalgic, but this one does. Tastes of roasted malt, toasted bread (wheat, rye, & pumpernickel), molasses, light amounts of dark cherries, and light earthy noble hopping combined with just a pinch of smokiness.

I highly recommend trying this one. It's a very good beer.

Dark brown color. Nice brownish head. Good retention. Smells of caramel, dark fruits, toffee, and sweet malty grains. Very malty flavor. Tastes of bread, cherries, caramel,and a bit of a roasted coffee character. Medium body, ample carbonation. Great beer. I'm sure I will enjoy it even more once I become more acclimated to the doppelbock style.

This beer is one of the best double bock beers. It has a milky smooth feel with a great flavor. It does not have a hard hitting flavor, but it keeps in a decent malty flavor that stays with you after you finish it. The smell is not intense, but smells slightly sweet. This is a good beer to have any time, but is slightly heavier so I would suggest you have it after a meal.
