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.

330ML bottle with no date, poured into my Troegs mug...

A - Dark muddy brownish/black color with a perfect one finger head and nice tan head. A sticky lace holds throughout consumption

S - Caramel and malts are predominant for me. Very good aroma that makes you crave it

T - Dark fruits, caramel, toffee, butterscotch and with a malty backbone. Absolutely perfect for the style

M - Smooth, medium body with a low carbonation. Ultra smooth finish

O - Doppelbocks aren't usually my thing but there's no way you can't appreciate how great this beer is. The 6.7% masks amazingly well. I could crush this beer so easily. The unique flavors meld perfectly together. This is absolutely world class and I'm kicking myself for continually passing it up time after time
