a: Wondeful look in the pint glass. Dark browns, not muddy but darker richer browns.

s: very light roasted carmel tones

t: smooth on the tongue, slight roast after taste and some sweetness.

m: Looks full bodied, but mouth feel is lighter, thinner but in a good way.

o: Fantastic beer, we did pint glasses at 57F and could have drank a lot more. Generally higher alcohol beers taste like it, but this was simple and easy to drink with no hint of the higher alcohol esters.

Pours a deep brown that nearly appears black; hues reminiscent of dark oak push through only at the fringes. A generous, 3 cm layer of khaki-colored head developed and lingered briefly. Minimal lacing. The aroma is of caramel, molten brown sugar, warm molasses, and earthen grains. The flavor amplifies these notes and adds a nice bready background flavor/texture. Some fruity elements - date, plum, and even a hint of pear - push through on the finish. Mouthfeel is superb with a viscous, full-bodied consistency and clean, slightly effervescent finish. Overall, this is something of a “style-defining” beer for me, and I tend to gauge the quality of other dopplebocks against it. Celebrator is well balanced, full-bodied, and rich in flavor; combined with its availability and affordability, it’s a first-class choice.
