    anybody tried this beer or familiar with it?

    i love really dark beers and stouts, from Guinness to Murphy's etc

    i recently tried this beer and it was great...had that Belgium beer twang, but absolutely full flavored and really good

    reasonably priced too

    i think it belongs in the pantheon of the world's great dark beers

    what say you?

    Oh, I know Fat Tire, that's good stuff. I didn't realize it was the same brewery. I'll check it out. Thanks for the tip.

    1554 is great! BUT! it's not a stout. It's a black beer :)

    Also, if you liked 1554 you need to try Xingu. It's from Brazil and is awesome!

    It's a Brussels black lager. It tastes decent out of the bottle. WAY better on tap.

    Isn't that true of pretty much any brew?

    Its a great beer, one of my favorite offerings from New Belgium.
    I first had it a few years ago in a NB Variety pack, I thik around wintertime. Ive bought it in 6packs a few times since. It is a great dark beer and Id even recommend it to those who arent into stouts or porters (since I dont believe it is either).

    Most beers, for certain. Ive had a few that were better bottled, one being Hoegaarden (which isnt a spectacular beer in either realm).

    I see Fat Tire all the time...I've never noticed 1554 on the shelves but I will try it. Sounds interesting.

    I'll also +1 Matticus...though I actually really like hoegaarden bottled, on tap it's only ever been so-so for me

    Definitely try the 1554, though it may not be easy to find on the shelf outside of the winter months. You'll see it here and there, but its usually more available during its season.

    Hoegaarden is okay, I liken it to Belgian Bud Lite.
    Definitely better out of a bottle. It always tastes like dirty tap water on draft, YMMV.

    I'll make a Total Wine run!

    I really like Hoegaarten on warm summer nights. I guess it is to me what Bud Light purports to be

    1554 and OREOS!!


    Sounds weird I know, but the other people that tried them together agree.

    Another fan of the NB Brewery selections here. 1554, Ranger, and Trippel are all well loved around here.

    Big props to the NB Variety Packs, a great way to try a variety of interesting, different beers on a bass player's budget.
    Honey wheats, super-hoppy ales, pilseners and lagers, oh my...

    But Yeah, I guess 1554 is ok.

    ;)

    Magic Hat #9 is awesome out of the bottle. It's rubbish on tap, IMHO.

    I might be mistaken, but I don't think 1554 is a seasonal beer. It has always been available year round where I'm at.
