This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Ommegang and HBO® announce the newest beer in the Game of Thrones® collaboration series. Through its first three seasons, the critically acclaimed drama has become the biggest show on HBO.

Named after the motto of House Targaryen, Fire and Blood is inspired by Daenerys Targaryen and her three dragons, Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion. To celebrate the rebirth of dragons, three different labels were created by the Game of Thrones visual effects specialists, each depicting one of Daenerys' feared dragons. Randomly distributed amongst the cases, each case will contain all three bottles.

On sale March 31, in time for the debut of Season 4, Fire and Blood makes for the perfect season premiere pairing. The beer is available in 750ml bottles and 1/6 barrel kegs.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 750 ml corked bottle into a Duvel tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep amber red with a lot of rising bubbles. Huge four finger off white head with good retention. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing.

Smell: A toasty and yeasty malt forward aroma with good hints of caramel and spices. Belgian yeast with hints of pepper, clove, and the added chilies. Toasted malt with hints of wheat, grains, rye, caramel, toffee, and biscuit. Fruit hints of banana, apple, lemon, grapefruit, and orange. Dark fruit hints of raisin and fig. Floral and earthy hops with hints of grass. A very solid aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a yeasty and toasty Belgian tinged red ale taste with big notes of spice and caramel. Upfront Belgian yeast along with notes of clove, pepper, and chilies. Sweet toasted malt with notes of wheat, grains, caramel, toffee, rye, and biscuit. Fruity esters of banana, apple, and dark cherry and raisin. Citrus hop notes of orange, lemon, and grapefruit. Earthy notes of grass. A pretty good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation. Creamy, spicy, and fairly drying.

Overall: A pretty good twist on a red ale. Big Belgian yeast and spice presence with the red malt notes.

Pours into my Ommegang chalice a clear deep auburn color with a nicely formed craggie light tannish colored atop that sticks like glue to the glass.Aromas of toasted cereal grain,light spiced phenols,and maybe a touch of vanilla.Quite dry on the palate with more spiced phenols,and mild nuttiness in the finish,the anchos don't provide much fruitiness but still a decent flavor profile.Not bad but not an overly complex beer,nice to to try another one of the "Game of Thrones" projects.

Caution, treat the cork like you've got champagne here as the cork came flying out with an enthusiastic pop, then ricocheted of my thumb to find my chin and that was from a well chilled bottle. No harm done so moving on.

A lightly hazy, medium copper colored ale; the chill haze fades as it warms. The persistent head is creamy to rock, pouring about a finger think and leaving thick ropes of lacing on the glass.

A mix of lightly smokey, dried chile peppers and rye spicy notes dominates the aroma. There is a supporting Belgian yeast spice note and a caramel malt aroma.

The chile flavor is there but restrained with just a hint of heat. The flavor of the rye and nutty, graininess of the spelt almost dominate. There is a medium malt sweetness with a light hops bitterness. Some moderate fruit flavors are coming through that are somewhere around the orange, light fruit with some raisin territory. The finish is medium with a light chile pepper and smoke aftertaste.

A creamy, medium bodied beer with a strong level of carbonation.

Think of a Dubble blended with a rustic grain Saison and a light touch of smoked dried chiles. There is a lot of flavors in here but it does become overwhelming as the flavors are medium to light in intensity and well balanced.

3.75/5  rDev +3.3%

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 750 ml bottle into a tulip glass. The label has a nice description of the beer and it lists the abv at 6.8%.

Appearance: The body has a dark garnet red color with a light haze and a tall light tan head. The head builds up quickly and settles slowly. The head also makes some nice glass lacing.

Smell: Overall the nose is fairly light but I get some light malt with mild Belgian yeast notes. It’s mild fruity and funky come out more as it warms. I also pick up some mineral notes and some spicy vegetable like spicy notes from the Ancho chillies.

Taste / Palate: Up front I get mildly sweet maltiness bring bready and fruity notes across the tongue. Apple, red pears and plums stand out here. Mild spicy notes as well as yeast notes move in and add some dryness. The finish has more dry spice as well as some light hop bitterness.

I loved the last version of the Game of Thrones beers, I've never seen a single episode and guess what I'm still liking the Ommegang/HBO concept of teaming up for special release beers based on a TV series/movie like this. I've smoked Soprano cigars from CAO, why not a Brewery Ommegang Game of Thrones beer, look at the concept based on three different labels I've seen there is a connection to me for an amber ale brewed with ancho chilies to represent a fire breathing dragon from the series on all three labels.

Appears a deep muddled dark amber body with off white cream colored head layers up like a textured milk shake very thick and fine bubbled carbonation streams to the bottom of the glass.

Aroma has smoked chilies, deep amber bready qualities, cherry and fresh sliced green apple tartness...maybe hints of burnt wood and a slightly smokey chocolate character from the deep roasted amber malts.

Darrk bitter cherry skins hit with a fruit note, very much earthy herbal bitterness rolled into the yeast dryness, spicy black pepper and finish of controlled but vegetable heat of the ancho chilies creats a nice mix of flavors.

My suggestion is to start out cold and let it warm up to brighten up even more flavor aspects, very complex and well thought out beer from Brewery Ommegang. Super dry finish, hard to believe they added the chilies on top of the deep tree bark like earthiness I'm getting from the hops and spice combination available in this beer already, the heat is slow and low barely lights a flame on the palate but it's in the backend and evident with each burp I've let out...However I've had a lot of Mexican food today including a mango pico de gallo with serrano and jalapeno chilies so I'm not sure what direction the spice is hitting my palate. All I know is it's a different type of heat, well integrated into the flavors of the beer, I'm okay with it.

On the mouthfeel it does slap the palate around a bit from the super dry end of the spectrum, to bitter/tart dark fruits, and finished with the chilies in the nares and back of the throat there's multiple challenging aspects of this beer, but I'm a fan carbonation is super heavy like most effervescent big bottled offerings from Ommegang or any other Belgian style brewery who knows what they are doing.

Overall very impressive, a complex beer that makes it feel like something new that hasn't been done yet or all that often. A new style not overdone or done in a unique way adds to the excitement and rating of a beer for me quite a lot, especially if it's something I like to taste and talk about the next day as well.

Poured a rich cloudy reddish brown, similar to unfiltered apple juice, with a two finger white head that receded to a ring of white leaving lacing down the glass. Quite beautiful looking, quite nice. Scents of phenolic Belgian yeast with strong notes of clove and a faint hint of sourness, a nice vegetal aroma in the background from the Ancho chilies, which also add a pleasant chili heat and spicy aroma that is detectable in the nose. There is also a noticeable malt presence taking the form of bready and biscuit-like aromas. Quite the nice aroma profile. Unique due to the presence of the chilies but still very Belgian in character. Taste begins quite Belgian, with strong notes of clove and a slight sourness mingling with a hint of malt sweetness and dark fruit. This moves into a rather dry middle with notes of clove, spicy herbal hops, hints of dark fruit and some nutty malt. Finish is dry with notes of clove, spicy herbal hops, nutty, toasted malt, and the faintest hint of spicy chilies. Aftertaste is dry with notes of clove, spicy herbal hops, vegetal, slightly spicy Ancho chilies and toasted malt. As it warms a flavor reminiscent of apples is added to the flavor profile at the beginning and middle of the sip along with note of warming alcohol throughout. A good all around flavor profile that is again, very Belgian in style, nicely dry, with a complex fruitiness underneath, a spicy phenolic yeast character, a bit of chili and a nice warming alcohol. Warm would best describe this beer's flavor. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with hints of chili spice and alcohol warmth in the mouth, moderate carbonation and a semi-dry feel. Very nicely done, again best described as warm, with a pleasant, sip able character. Overall this is a fine beer. It marries the character imparted by Belgian yeast with some unique character of it's own to make a wonderfully different, warm feeling sipping beer.

750ml bottle. I got the one with the fire-spewing dragon on the label, and not because I know a whit about the books or series. Oh, and strange how the name is only weird to me, in the sense that it normally would be rendered in Dutch, or perhaps as the moniker of yer local English pub.

This beer pours a rather murky, dark orange brick amber colour, with a thoroughly encompassing tower of puffy, densely foamy, and somewhat creamy tan head, which leaves some random globs of patchy, sudsy, invading alien race lace around the glass as things indubitably bleed off.

It smells of crackery pale and caramel malt, toasted brown rye bread, musty dry yeast, muddled overripe orchard fruit (so, raisins and prune, mostly), white pepper, a bit of acrid clove, hollow stale nuts, and the suggestion of metallic warming alcohol. The taste is much more sweet, relatively, with a bready caramel malt that seems capable of going the distance, up against the hegemony of tacky yeast, dry, almost zombie-like black fruit, mixed, and yet underwhelming, stateful savoury spice, a lazy in its arrival, soft smoky spiciness, and plainly leafy, earthy hops.

The carbonation is quite heady, frothy, and a bit overwrought, the body an adequate medium weight, and tangentially smooth, with too many caveats to proclaim it as such throughout the kingdom, or even down the block. It finishes off-dry, the dry, crackery and biscuity caramel malt doing well by the supposed red ale heritage of this increasingly pedestrian offering.

Better than usual for Ommegang, at least by this particular limited (I do so hope) series - yeasty - yep, dry - oh yeah, but with enough malty goodness to keep the rest of us entertained and engaged, to a certain point. A Belgian Red Ale, in the end, which is not really a thing 'round these parts, of course, but, well, but nothing. Sorry, I'm more taken by the Monster Magnet playing in my background, whose sultry tales of general indulgence, sex, and the supernatural move me way the fuck more than this sort of fanboy wankery does.

DATE REVIEWED: June 14, 2014... GLASSWARE: Duvel tulip... OCCASION: Game of Thrones season three arrives on DVD...APPEARANCE: dark, red velvet body holds a thick, three-finger, off-white head that leaves exemplary Brussels lace... AROMA: pepper,, spicy hops and some odd malts; the sharpness of chili is not predominant... PALATE: thin initially, but the heat burrows under the tongue; active and warming; mellows late... TASTE: not as spicy as anticipated--a selling point, no?--but big spelt and rye make this a reasonably flavorful experience... OVERALLL: like a well-trained dragon, this beer serves its master while providing a full-bodied impact....

Another awesome looking Ommegang beer. Big towering froth over an auburn colored beer with some red glow to it. Big cakey head and clumpy lace patches. Retention holds on in the form of nearly a 1/2" high foam pile. Aroma is nutty grains, something like musky coffee, tart green apple, belgian yeastiness, dank juiciness, and full caramel-bread maltiness. Earthy something going on as well...root tea and sweet potatoes perhaps. Taste brings further interest. A very Ommegang beer with the addition of spicy red pepper. Interesting situation between the belgian yeast and pepper. Zesty, fruity, malty, floral, leafy, and casual hot red pepper spice. This beer does fit its dragon theme well. Should possibly be smokey too but I'm not entirely sure that would work great. Again the earthiness comes through....wet decomposing leaves and tea. Sweet chewy malt, both dry and wet, finely carbonated, and a smidge chalky. Overall the words fun, experimental, belgian, and zesty come to mind. Not bad.

Pours a murky red/amber with prodigious head of off-white suds. Sloppy but thick lace.

Nose is spicy and yeasty Belgian-style, all the way. A little hint of peppery spice, too, which is fitting.

Taste is bright and fruity — an explosion of dark berry notes and a tint of chili pepper (actually Ancho chilies) that meld well with the spicy Belgian yeast. Finishes an almost funky sour flavor. This is a complex, subtle, and well-rounded brew that’s delicious and unique. Bravo, Ommegang, for twisting the traditional Belgian into something unusual yet delicious.

My local grocery store has a special price on this bomber so I grabbed one.
A - Pours a dark brown with a 1" head of tight bubbles that settles quickly.
S - Typical Belgian yeast aroma.
T - I don't think I have ever worked so hard to figure out the flavors in a beer. With every sip I moved this around my mouth, trying to hit all my taste buds and come up with something. The ancho chillies came through once like a bullet but then it was gone. Good flavor but it must be attributed to the malts and the yeast.
M - Medium mouth feel and very carbonated.
O - Not the best Ommegang has to offer but solid. Good but not Very Good.

Poured into an Ommegang tulip. Proper glassware rules in effect...

A - Reddish-rust colored pour with a beige foam that is quite active. Lacing on this is pretty incredible as it clings the glass.

S - Smells of dark berries, bubblegum, and some lingering scent of cherry peppers.

T - Some sweet flavors of candied cherries is up front. There is some tangy notes from the yeast. The finish is clearly marked by some acidity of sweet and spicy peppers. While not overbearing, the peppery heat does accentuate the beer.

M - Very hard to have more than one of these. The heat from the peppers grows a bit tiresome for the palate. Balance is good and the finish leaves some tingling in the mouth.

O - This goes perfect with grilled pork, and of course, the latest episode of Game of Thrones. I like this the best of the GoT releases and top marks to Ommegang for their creative nature on this.

Pours two fingers of head on a hazy straw colored body. Looks great.
The aroma is musty earth and leather; not really enjoyable.
The taste has a big malty start with some mild lemon bitterness to round it out, though it seems bland overall.
The texture is fizzy, higher carbonation and thin bodied.
It was okay, but not something to have again.

Opens with a pop, cork really wanted out!

Pours a very effervescent orange with 4+ fingers of eggshell white head. Above average head retention & average lacing

S: Bubblegum

T: Juicyfruit, phenols, white pepper & some plum notes up front. Cloves, juicy fruit & dirty phenol notes & just a little bit of black currant & dryness as this warms & a kiss of boozeyness. Finishes with some green appleskins, pears, & faint lemony hops & juicy fruit & dryness & green bananas

MF: Light bodied, firm carbonation

I really wanted to like this, maybe I did a little, but nothing I would buy again. Was expecting more

Game Of Thrones Fire And Blood brewed by Cooperstown Brewing Company. This brew has an ABV of 6.5 and it pours out a dark brown amber color. There is also some cloudiness to this beer, you can not see thought this brew. I'm going to say it non filtered brew. Not saying that's a bad thing. To me this brew looks like root beer. This brew has a thick white,head with a lot of bubbles. The look is so different from other brews on the market. That's why I like it ,it is not your typical brew. Game Of Thrones Fire And Blood also has some lacing on the glass. The smell is rich with flavor. You pick up grains and hops in the smell. The smell is really nice. The taste is rich with flavor and smoothness. I'm picking up on some caramel and grins. This brew has a nice balance it. There is nothing overpowering to Game Of Thrones Fire And Blood. The aftertaste has a bite to it not bad but it is there. Mouth feel of Game Of Thrones Fire And Blood is nice and present. Overall I'm giving Game Of Thrones Fire And Blood a 4 out of 5. This was better than what I was expecting. I'm glad I got this brew!! I would get this brew again.

Pours an amber brown color with a big bubbled off white head that slowly dissipated. Good retention.

The aroma is clovey, definitely of a Belgian yeast strain, which is no surprise. Musty farmhouse. Light lemon, tart apple and some juicy fruit. Nice bright aroma.

The taste is big on the yeast phenols. Lots of clove and musty farmhouse. Tart apple. Some tea like notes from the malt. Kind of one dimensional. Don't get anything from the chiles.

The feel is light to moderate with lots of fizzy carbonation. Sweet on the palate but not cloying. Slightly dry in the finish.

A good beer but a bit boring. Nice yeasty flavors but that is about it. Drinks well.

Pours deep crimson/brown with thick white foam. Loads of lacing and islands of foam. Deep toffee/caramel nose and bready. Smooth sweet taste, malty. Light spice in the backgroun - cinnamon, nutmeg. Low carbonation. Light chili taste in the close.

From the corked caged 750 ml. bottle. Sampled on May 27, 2014.

Explosive cork turns into a deep chestnut brown pour with reddish hues and a long-lasting fluffy off-white head.

Plenty of Belgian yeast and toasted biscuit malts on the nose. A touch of spice in the background.

Body is thin to medium but the texture collapses to carbonation bubbles quickly.

The taste is also nice and toasty with a dash of spice but not as obvious as I thought it could be. Slightly sharp bitterness to end. It has many of the Belgian characteristics I would expect but it seemed a little thin.

750 ml bottle, packaged on 12/23/13, best by 12/2015. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy ruby red/brown color with a couple inch light tan head that stayed around for a long time. There's also a lot of lacing. Aroma is yeasty, the brew smells like cloves, dark fruit (raisins, cherries), dark bread and peppery spice (not chili pepper spice). Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but there's also some nuttiness, apple, earthiness and very light chili pepper flavor noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's slick and creamy and it's also well carbonated. I think it's an OK overall brew, however if you're expecting any chili pepper spicy heat in this brew you're going to be disappointed. But if you look at this as being a red ale or a Belgian dark ale, it's not a bad brew at all. With that being said, it's not one of my favorite Ommegang selections but it was nice to try once. $7.99 a bottle.

Brewery Ommegang's Game of Thrones Fire and Blood Red Ale. It is brewed with rye and ancho chilies. 6.8% ABV.

Nice, active pop. To be expected from a cork-and-cage.

A: A full two fingers of fluffy head! Been a while since I've had such a heady beer. Deep red-amber, approaching brown. Hazy platinum-yellow in the dimple. Some lacing.

S: Very bready. Kind of a softer rye, or darker wheat/whole grain. Toasted grain cereal (think Cheerios). Just the faintest bit of chili pepper.

T/MF: It has a "cold" flavor to it. Not like mint, but like your drinking a liquid that is just cold enough where you can't really taste it right. Peppers definitely come through more, here; moderately sweet and sort of waxy. Medium rye bread flavor. Just a light spice that seems to balance the rye and ancho. Earthy/dirt-like, as well, with light char hiding in the background. Light, and not quite what I was expecting, but quite decent, actually. Certainly the best beer I've had over the last few days! A beer you can contemplate, but that doesn't really need a lot of focus. Still haven't watched the show yet, but I could see sipping this while watching dragons ply the sky.

Poured into a Belgian tulip glass, from a 750mL bottle.

Bottle: Poured a deep copper color ale with a nice thick off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light spicy rye notes with some caramelized malt notes is OKish. Taste is also dominated by spicy rye notes with some caramelized malt notes. Body is about average with good carbonation doesn’t’ really stand out and chiles notes are way too subtle.

A: Pours a clear reddish-brown with three fingers of light khaki head that fades into a frothy cap with great lacing.

S: Caramel and crystal malts with sweet candy sugar notes up front with aromas of bubblegum and chilies underneath.

T: Similar to the aroma, sweet malt and candy sugar flavors at first, though a light hop bitterness and slight chili heat come through towards the finish. There are also notes of biscuits and Belgian spices.

M: Medium-light body with moderately high, frothy carbonation, this beer is nicely drinkable.

O: A solid beer, overall. I'd like a bit more depth and presence from the chilies, but it's still enjoyable.

Game Of Thrones Fire And Blood from Cooperstown Brewing Company, a limited edition brew that I feel kinda guilty breaking the seal hahaha. Poured from the art-laden bottle, this brew has quite a head! Three, nearly four fingers tall directly after pouring with an off-white head. Excellent lacing here! Body is murky brown with basically no transparency.

I smell slightly vinegarish malt, quite inviting. And the obligatory red ale metallic-ness, but not too much. Great job here!

Tastes like the malt I mentioned, caramel, and a dash of copper. This is pretty enjoyable, as I did not much care for Nosferatu. Might go good with some ginger&pepper rubbed chicken.

Mouthfeel is nice considering the dark hue, surprisingly clean finish

A well-achieved 4.25 for this limited brew. It exceeded my expectations, as this is a licensed memorabilia product. I would buy this brew again if it was a year-round product. P.s. THE HEAD IS STILL RETAINING!!!!

Poured from a corked & caged 750 mL bottle into a Brewers Art goblet. Moderate hand. The stamp reads PKG ON 01/29/14, BEST BY 01/20/16.

A: Slightly hazy body with an interesting color. Depending on the angle, it can appear golden yellow, amber, cherry or brown. 2-3 fingers of a markedly clean white head. Bit rocky. Good retention. Moderate lacing. This is an uncommonly cool-looking beer.

S: Belgian yeast falling on the sweeter side of the spectrum. Cardamom. Wheat-type scents, banana. Berry, apple. Bread. Touch of smoke.

T: Light, yeasty sweetness and rye spice transitions in to a smoky, more earthy malt and a brief flash of ancho heat. Fades quickly. Moderate bitterness in a dry finish. Subtle lingering yeast and malt in the aftertaste. slight alcohol. No significant capsaicin burn accumulates.

M: Moderate carbonation with a slight prickliness. Moderate body. A tad sticky.

O: Enjoyed this one quite a bit. Interesting meld of styles. A bit more hop forward than the average Ommegang offering and finishes like a Belgian pale/light IPA. Pleasant smokiness and some nice fruit/spice notes. The ancho presence is an excellent complement, if somewhat light on its own. This one worked much better than the Game of Thrones stout.

Prost!
