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.

What a fantastic beer. From beginning to end it is great in every aspect.
I starts with medium brown color and one finger tan head. Lacing all the way down the glass.
The smell is just amazing. It smells like caramel being heated up.
Taste is a little more bitter than the smell. It is creamy and smooth.
I could drink this all year long, but it is perfect for cool fall evening.

12oz bottle poured into celebrator glass

A - dark cloudy brown body with a light brown head two fingers deep. decent retention and good lacing.

S - dark fruit, dates, cherries, cranberries. caramel brown sugar and toffee sit in the back. superb nose on this.

T - dark fruit, dates, brown sugar caramel. nice grassy hop presence thats muted but there finishes it off.

M - medium to full bodied with medium to low carbonation. coarse coffee grind feel to the body that works with this beer.

O - such a brilliant beer. if you have not had this go get some.

very dark red/brown colour. good amount of tan head with some nice lacing that sticks around for a bit.

smell was nice - sweet, fruity, and some roasted malts.

taste was similar but not quite as good - roasted malt, sweet/fruity, bit of molasses. wasn't the best thing i've ever tasted but definitely still a good beer, i enjoyed trying it.
