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.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Dark brown with ruby highlights, huge head.

Smell: Darkened toffee, sweetness, hint of coffee.

Taste: Sweet, dark chocolate, mild coffee. No alcohol detected, very well balanced, semi-dry finish.

Overall: Celebrator has been a favorite that I'm finally getting around to review. Leaves other doppelbocks in the dust with its balanced flavors and well-hidden alcohol. A great beer that can be enjoyed year round.
