During a trip to Denver this past weekend, I had a chance to grab this on tap at Hard Rock Denver.
This beer was served in a pilsner glass - a beer that was dark brown with ruby highlights. About an inch head to it with sticky lacing throughout. Nose was of smokiness, caramel, roasted and sweet malts. Taste is well balanced between the sweet and bitterness. The carbonation is actually extremely visible. I was also surprised by the light body on this beer. Overall, quite pleasant and the lighter body to it makes it a beer that I could sit with for a session and not feel full.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
