This guy has been sitting in my fridge begging to be consumer. Served in a tulip
A: Pours a fine dark brown- black color with a inch thick tan head with nice amounts of lacing, much stickage to the sides of the glass
S: Barley, malts, chocolate, very rich
T: Mmm, delicious, not as rich as I was expecting, but it's got great flavor, choclate, barley, malt sugars, dark fruits, this guy is pretty sweet, very tasty, pick up hints of yeast as well
M: I'd say this beer is in the space between a rich full bodied, thick beer and a light, crisp, refreshing beer, good amounts of carbonation in a good combination with rich, robust flavors.
O: I really enjoyed this beer, another good brew from New Belgium, I actually never heard of this one, it's not one of their big names in mainstream craft brews but I really liked it and I recommend it to everyone.

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.
