COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A surprisingly bright taste and a dry, chocolaty finish -- one evocative of dark brews enjoyed in Belgian taverns 500 years ago. Not a porter, not a stout -- it's 1554.

EKGoldings (747) - Radford, Virginia, USA - AUG 26, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2019 Bottle, picked up at brewery in Asheville so as fresh as it gets. Pours dark brown-red and clear. Nice fine head, doesn't appear filtered. Aroma of dark malt and light hop. Tastes crisp, dry, dark malts without bitterness (debittered malts methink). A little hop in the background. A nice easy drinking beer.

hrabren (3693) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 28, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2019 On tap at Mali medo, Zagreb. Black, medium to large creamy tan head. Aroma is toasty, malty, lightly fruity. Flavour is toasty, nutty, roasted hazelnut, bready. Charred wood. Light caramel sweetness. Dry roasty finish. Kinda watery, moving towards creamy texture. Light body. Very light cardboard touch, could be from the malts. Also experienced light green apple, nothing too intense. Not bad.

I was surprised to find that this is a lager. It has the appearance of a stout ale, but with a milder flavor. It appears a very dark brown in the glass with a minimal head. Mild flavor and mild aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2.9
Davhgbrew (1071) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2019 Aroma is toasty, nutty, and chocolatey. Bready malt up front, which turns into caramel and roasted dark chocolate. The finish lingers with sweetness of caramel and cocoa. Clean flavors throughout and very even keeled with no spikes of hops, acidity, or fruitiness. Drinks like a 4.5 %abv brew, but it is slightly sneaky at 6%. Has a bit of a creamy mouthfeel, a little more creaminess than other shwarzbeers I've had. Roasted barley bitterness in the finish as well.
