12 oz bottle wad poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that has reduced to a thin layer and left some nice lacing. It is a dark brown with a little light passing through when held up to a light with signs of bubbles coming up through the glass.
Smell: I am picking up some fruity notes, chocolate, caramel, and toffee notes. There almost seems to be a creamy aroma to the beer too.
Taste: All of the above mentioned aromas blended together.
Mouthfeel: Creamy and silky smooth, low carbonation, medium to full bodied, silky, a little dry, and really delicious to drink.
Overall: Pretty solid black ale or Belgian dark ale. I was really surprised how tasty this beer was when I drank it. Pretty solid score and happy that my brother chose to bring this back from his trip to TN. Next time I am out in Colorado, I will have to hunt this beer down.

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.
