Finally got to try some New Belgiums while on vacation. Really enjoyed the 1554. Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Appearance is very very dark brown, practically black except when backlit. Nice aroma, more nutty in both smell and taste than I was expecting. Malt dominant with some nice chocolate and coffee undertones. The nuttiness is present throughout and adds alot. Really enjoyed the alcohol level as I was able to session a few during the evening with no effect. Good mouthfeel helped it go down smooth. Wish I could get this on a regular basis.

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.
