Got this at the New Belgium place in the Denver Airport. Thank goodness for that place...kept me entertained during a long delay.
A: Dark reddish brown and fairly opaque. Good one finger whitish-tan head and decent lacing.
S: Roasted malt and perhaps a touch of coffee.
T: Opening is strong roasted malt, followed by a mild coffee/chocolate sweetness. Finish is just a tiny touch of bitterness.
MF: Thin bodied but very smooth and the carbonation complements it well. Moderate alcohol makes this an easy to drink beer.
D: Nice sessionable beer, but the flavor is pretty basic. Not the best NB brew, but certainly worth a try and usually pretty easy to find (at least on the west coast).
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.
