Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Color was brownish black, but closer to black. Just over an inch of head. Tannish white lacing with some sporadic bubbles in there. Healthy amount of film on the sides.
Smelled dark chocolate malts. Also coffee, caramel and toffee in there as well.
Tasted malts, but couldn’t distinguish the favorite. If a gun was to my head, I’d say dark chocolate. Definitely dark malts, but relatively bland overall. Nice smooth finish.
Medium body. Creamy finish. Average carbonation. Smooth abrupt finish.
A decent beer overall. Nothing too special, but it gets the job done. I’d give it another go some time.

12oz bottle, new label and beer name "1554 Black Lager", but apparently it's the same recipe. Enjoy by 12OCT14
L - tall, frothy, beige head caps a mahogany colored body
S - dark malts, chocolate, caramel, yeast
T - roasted barley, chocolate, caramel, kind of cola-like, slight spice to the yeast, incredible balance
F - medium body, creamy, smooth, finishes clean with some ashy chocolatey roast lingering a bit
O - every time I come back to this I find it to be good, but not great. I do buy it every once in awhile as it's both fairly sessionable and enjoyable.
