New Belgium 1554 ....

Today's beer is 1554 "Enlightened Black Ale" from New Belgium Brewing Company.  The twelve ounce bottle shows 5.6% ABV.  The web site lists IBUs at 21.

1554 poured with a medium, rich brown head.  Beer color is a dark reddish brown.  A small amount of light shows through the glass when held up to the light.  The aroma is primarily malt and cocoa, with a little dark fruits.  Medium bodied. The taste is much like the aroma - malt and cocoa, maybe a little dark fruit.  Thicker mouth feel.  The cocoa stays with you; it even seems like there might be a little left in your mouth.
