Celebrator is an iconic doppelbock, regularly earning awards and accolades from competitions and journalists. It pours a dark mahogany color with flecks of rich amber when held up to the light. The bouquet immediately entices with seductive notes of toffee, caramel, toasted cinnamon-raisin bread, dried plum and fig, all laced with threads of molasses and sweet smoke. The mouth is lush and velvety, and many of the aromatic elements become part of the flavor profile without finishing cloyingly sweet. Notes of coffee and cocoa linger through the close, and the alcohol is completely in balance with all of the other elements. Merchant du Vin.
