10/17/2010: Time to start dipping into the basement for my last couple dozen beers. Might as well start with a beer that I know will be good; Ayinger Celebrator Dopplebock. Ayinger might just be my favorite brewery from Germany. Ok technically its called Privatbrauerei Franz Inselkammer KG / Brauerei Aying, but but I don’t speaka da schnitzel.

The smell to Celebrator is just plain awesome, sweet malt, a bit of smoke, a bit bready. Lots of different subtle flavors going on here. Even though not one of them is what I would call bold the whole ends up being greater than the sum of its parts. Caramel and smoke are leading the way in the front, while raisins, chocolate, and roasted coffee sit in the back seat but let you know they are there. There is no fighting in this car ride as all 5 of these flavors mix to make one amazing beer. Mouthfeel is almost velvety, with moderate carbonation. Very drinkable and finishes slightly dry. Good stuff!

Picture of the day: CT Scan of a twinkie. I want to know who funded this haha.

  1. Don’t leave out the best part, the little plastic ram statue that doubles as a Christmas tree decoration.
