Pours a rustic mahogany color with a very impressive head, extremely frothy and lacy.
Aroma is classic Ommegang/Belgian spices, rye, and dark fruit.

Taste is very nicely blended. All of the different elements play off each other, yet complement at the same time. The Belgian spices and dark fruit hit first, then a smooth, pleasantly drying bitterness takes over and finishes with the slightest hint of chili. It's very subtle. Personally I'm a big fan of a little heat in my chocolate and I was hoping for a little more punch in this beer, but it doesn't detract from it at all.

As a HUGE Game of Thrones fan, Ommegang has done a perfect job of portraying a representation of Daenerys and her dragons. It starts fiery and spicy akin to the breath and fire of a dragon and ends with a fitting dryness reminiscent of ash and the aftermath. It's quite beautifully done.

Can I say, this brew is fit for a Khaleesi? :)

Two thumbs up, Ommegang!

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.

I'm giving this a solid 4.50 across the board.

Occasion: Because I damn well feel like it.

It pours a very beautiful deep-deep-crimson red. Very active, spacy head, that is 3 fingers, and will disappear pretty quickly. Smell is what you would expect from a standard duvel, spiced, bready, dark fruits such as fig, ends with that spotting banana smell. TASTE - The taste is very mellow, great balance of fruits, malt, and a mellow hop profile. I must not that the taste does change with temperature. When cold, it is very refreshing and in generally a drinkable beer to the standard palate. However, letting this beer warm up, it almost becomes a sour. The flavors mild out substantially, and ends with a bit of sourness. MOUTHFEEL - I would say this beer is medium bodied, silk to oil, and ends with a tingle around the lips from the chili.

Overall - This is a solid brew, especially to this particular style of beer. They definitely added their own spin on a great style. Novelties aside, this beer is worth trying. I wish this was available at more bars, while they had a showing for GoT. That would be awesome, a GoT themed beer and a bar full of avid viewers. Cheers! Dracarys!
