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.

Poured a creamy, off-white, but mostly-diminishing head atop a beautifully deep, oily hued combination of amber and reddish-brown. The smell is purely, and of pure grains and cereals. Really, a wonderful presentation of the style. Deep color and deep aroma. All this before the first sip, I can't wait. A light hoppy tinge is another enticing factor to this one.

The initial flavor is slightly sweet, with the grains and malts really plotting themselves firmly on your palate. A slightly acidic warmth is present as well.

This is a great shining example of what this style is to be. The mouthfeel is a medium body, and a medium-length finish.

This is the best of any bock or doppelbock I have ever had. It has convinced me to expand myself away from ales more.
