New Belgium 1554 Enlightened Black Ale

Ode to New Belgium 1554 Enlightened Black Ale


  • Twas late in the eve when I opened the brew
  • The bottle cap hissed in anticipation
  • With that sound a long day I bid adieu
  • I hoped New Belgium would bring salvation
  • The elixir was poured with muddy head
  • I breathed in deep a smell so devine
  • To my lips came the glass in slow motion
  • I took a long drink a taste of dark bread
  • A wonderful flavor so full and refined
  • New Belgium created a mighty potion

JBB6 Rating: Will Buy Again

    I prefer the 1554 over Fat Tire. The 1554 has a much richer and smoother taste. It’s on my favorite list.

    I was very surprised… I hadn’t seen this one before, but I tend to agree that this one is one of their best. The owner of Malt & Vine in Redmond, WA also mentioned it as an outstanding dark beer.

    Thank you! I tend to agree and am very happy that this is included in their Folly Pack (I am on number 3 for the summer 🙂 ).
