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.

Pours a super dark brown, almost black, with a tan head that sticks around. Amazing aroma and flavors: sticky molasses, dried fruits, cherry, dark chocolate, hop leaves, and nice residual sugar sweetness and a hint of bitter hop bite to balance it out without drying the palate at all. Smooth mouthfeel, medium body. Damn near perfect.

1.5 finger tan head tops off this dark brew. When held to bright light, I get ruby red colors. As I drink, a thin foam clings to my glass. A foam film stays with the brew throughout.

I get dried dark fruits in the nose.

Taste is really complex. Dark fruits, nutty flavors, alcohol, toast.

Very full bodied. Hearty. Nice feel.

Overall, a very good beer. Glad I tried it. I will get again and I would recommend this to fellow BAs.
