Smooth, dark, melty, chocolaty ecstasy. Vanilla, delicious, amazing dream. Tastes like the year 1554. 802CATAMOUNT (3) - gastonia, North Carolina, USA - SEP 19, 2010 does not count

An amazing lesser known beer. I always bring this beer to gatherings and everyone’s always surprised how good this is. If you like Fat Tire you MUST try 1554!!! Omar1991 (10) - - JUN 5, 2016
This is the by far one of the best beers I've ever tried. Very well balanced with smoky and very subtle chocolate notes. Looks fantastic and goes down very easy with no aftertaste . Highly recommend

New Belgium is onto something with the 1554. A dark beer that you can drink even when it is 100 F. Wonderful mouth feel, a hint of chocolate sweetness, fantastic! Fattimus (3) - Sedalia, Missouri, USA - FEB 26, 2007 does not count
Dark reddish brown; near black, body with very light aroma of chocolate and coffee. Initial zesty acidic flavor with surprisingly clean, refreshing finish. My all-time personal favorite. seuinoz (257) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - APR 23, 2015
Strong coffee and chocolate notes in the taste, and aroma sits really well on the palate well balanced. CarpeDiem601 (2) - , California, USA - AUG 22, 2016 does not count
One of my favorite beers of all time. I think that beers are largely unbalanced. This on the other hand is a perfectly balanced beer.

My favorite black ale. Weyerbacher’s Black Hole aspires to this but misses the light touch and winds up too cough-syrupy. 1554 can be guzzled or sipped non-stop, in a word: drinkable. Also, has a bit of alcohol sting on top so you don’t notice the low content.
