Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a New Belgium globe glass. Beer was a dark brown color with a one finger, off-white, creamy head. Moderate carbonation and very minor lacing around the glass.
Aroma was malt, caramel, toffee, nuts and a touch of coffee.
Taste was roasted nuts, malt, grains, dark fruits and maybe a touch of coffee in the back.
Mouthfeel was pretty carbonated, but went down smooth and was medium bodied.
This is an all around nice session beer. It's not overly complex, but is pretty enjoyable and I think they did a good job with this one.

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.
