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.

12 oz bottle poured into my maudite snifter.

A- Celebrator pours a dark reddish brown with a light brown head. Looks well carbonated.

S- Caramel, dark fruits,and I smell apple. Also some dark roasty maltiness

T- Roasty malts, dark fruits, and I still get apple.

M- Wonderful. Medium bodied, creamy, well carbonated. Not too heavy, not too light.

D- I just bought this one single so seconds is not an option. I could definitely go for one or two more though.

Overall a great beer. As an aside it is pairing really well with my cigar.
