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.
