Thanks to Ballewblake for bringing this to Brooklyn for Biscodoll and thanks to Biscodoll for providing a few as a delivery gratuity.
I never thought I'd be reviewing a New Belgium beer while I lived in Brooklyn.
Pours a dark brown that is clear with a thin creme/tannish head that falls to nothing. Nose is supremely odd. Very much like a porter with the roasted and coffee tones. Flavor is nice and robust, though not overly complex in nature. Again, it hits me like a porter. Roasted and vaguely like a schwarzbier (yes I have had a few different ones recently to compare to). The area it sways towards Belgian is in the feel and the slightly different sweet tone. Overall this is a very nice beer. Definitely worth trying and definitely one of New Belgiums better offerings.

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.
