Had on tap at old Chicago
A-dark Brown yet very crisp color. Head is minimal about half finger but laces very well. Good looking beer
S-lacks alot in the nose. Can get a little roasted barley and very subtle hops
T-very crisp and clean malt flavor capped of with a small kiss of hops. Very clean beer roasted nuttyness and a slight biscut flavor.
M&D-mouthfeel I'd pretty thin but not watery. Very smooth and easy to drink a good down the middle of the road beer for when u want something a little dark and richer as well as clean and crisp.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a bottle into a glass. 1554 is one of the better offerings from New Belgium. The appearance is incredibly dark upon pour. The smell is the worst part of this beer with a weak wheat and caramel smell. The taste and the mouthfeel are incredible though with a very smooth finish. Highly recommend, especially in the winter.
