The Twelve Beers to Christmas - 1

The Twelve Beers to Christmas - #1
Ayinger - Celebrator Doppelbock

When I think of Christmas this is the beer that comes to mind.  Strong, sweet and beautifully complex.  There are wonderful notes of raisins and cherry with a thick malty body.  As if this beer was not enough of a treat it comes with a small plastic ram on each bottle.  Each year I treat myself to a case of this and enjoy drinking them while I decorate the Christmas tree with all the rams that come with the beer.

In this segment, "The Twelve Beers to Christmas" I will be sharing a beer each day leading up to Christmas.
