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.

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.
