Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock is a Doppelbock from Germany (specifically, from the Pirvatbrauerei Franz Inselkammer KG/Brauerei Aying). It's 6.70% ABV and available year-round in bottles, growlers, casks, and on-tap. Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock pours out a dark chestnut brown with a dark tan foam head that retains very well, leaving chunky lace as it settles. The nose offers smells of chocolate malt, deep plums and other dried dark fruits, and sweet breads. The taste of this doppelbock is of dark and brown malts, with flavors of caramel chocolate cream and dark fruits (raisin, fig, plum), balanced with an earthen hop bitterness. The alcohol is well masked in Ayinger Celebrator, and the mouthfeel is light and well carbonated, with a creamy consistency and a slick finish. Try pairing Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock with German cuisine, buttery and earthy cheeses, or game. Sips nicely from a Pilsener glass, mug, or stein at 45-50°F.
