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.

This beer is just awe-inspiring. I had heard good tales told of Ommegang and its Belgian roots, but had never had the opportunity to try any of their offerings until I saw this at my local Total Wine. I was immediately intrigued at least by the novelty of a Game of Thrones inspired beer, but when I read that it was a Belgian style red ale with a good BA score and heard that it came highly recommended by the employee doing tastings of various other beers that day I knew I had to try it. This beer looks incredible. It pours an amazing dark ruby color and formed three or four fingers of fluffy white head that passed the rim of a large glass and did not even hint at disappearing until I myself drank the beer, which left gorgeous lacing all the way down. The taste was also something truly unique as it combined the malty profile of a very flavorful red ale with the unique taste of Belgian yeast, one of my favorite things about Belgian style beers. Altogether this is a truly unique beer which looks, feels, smells, and tastes incredible. Utterly beyond comparison.
