Brew Review-New Belgium 1554
With new that New Belgium is coming to the DC area on August 22nd, I’ve decided to review a couple of their beers. First one: 1554
The 1554 is called the Enlightened Black Ale. Brewed with a lager yeast and a ton of dark malts, it’s an interesting combination. When poured, it’s a deep brown color, nearly black with a light, thin head. The aroma was malty sweet with caramel notes and a nice floral hop scent.
The flavor was fairly complex. Very malty with some molasses and caramel, even a little dried fruit. The finish was slightly bitter with a mild floral hop flavor.
Overall, a good beer.
