Ayinger Celebrator is a beer that has a dominant malty taste. This originates from a monk recipe and 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.
