Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: kojevergas on 03-11-2014

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.

Fire & Blood is a 6.8% ABV Red ale, brewed with pilsner, Cara-60, Midnight Wheat, flaked rye and spelt. Assertive hopping includes CTZ, Styrian Golding and German Tettnang hops. Spiced with de-seeded Ancho chilies. Fire & Blood has a deep, dark red hue with a persistent, creamy, off-white head. Aromas of ripe fruit, raisins, malt & slight spice, followed by a slightly floral and spicy hop character. A fruity, sweetish malt taste gives way to faint drying provided by the hops & rye.

Havnt watched too much of GOT but it's a great label and like the brewery and ingredients sounded interesting so why not and it pours a hazy brown copper hue with an ever rising four finger fluffy head and lacing everywhere,on smelling it the ancho chillies are quite dominant with a musty aroma with spicy hops,the slightest touch of caramel and blackberries,the mouthfeel is medium bodied and overcarbonated with tastes of red berries,herbal earthy hops,a subtle touch of warmth from the chillies definately not heat just subtle warmth and finished with a subtle spicy ryness and overall a nice drinkable beer that's prob a big seller due to GOT fans but I wouldn't rush out to buy again at the price cheers.

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

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 into imperial pint.

A: Pours a woody deep reddish brown with a huge, airy, frothy and thick light tan cream colored head that I finally had to break down and sip because it wasn't receding. Very good head retention. Thick streaks of rocky lace were left down the glass.
S: Sweet and nutty notes of stone fruits, dried apricots, cardamon, cinnamon, chili, and earthy yeast. Dry and bready smelling with an interesting layer of spices.
T: Much sweeter than the nose led on, with flavors of sweet fruit juices, candied fruits, candied sugar, and bread crust yeast. There is a nuttiness and woodiness overall. More fruit flavors of spices pear, apricots and canned peaches come through in the finish, and I finally get some chili spice poking through in the aftertaste. It's not hot or very lingering though. Maybe a subtle tingly after a few sips.
M: Medium-full body, frothy and splashy but very soft and fluffy carbonation. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel.
O: A really solid red ale. Very complex and flavorful with various layers of sweet and spicy. Better than expected. Chili could have been slightly more prominent though.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Served from a 650 ml bottle

Appearance: Probably the most appealing part of the beer. Lots of yeast in the beer that contributed tons of carbonation. Poured into a tulip glass. Nice fairly loose light-cream coloured head. Great retention. Plenty of lacing down the glass. A nice opaque copper amber colour with some nice floating yeast visible.

Smell: Sweet malt but with a tang of spiciness available during smell. Chilli's certainly contribute to the aroma. A little bit of dried cherries or orange. Toasty caramel notes as well.

Taste: Much like the aroma. A nice sweetness upfront but the ancho chilies to counter it. The taste fails to follow through. The malt doesn't produce the desired sweetness. Lacking in nice body.

Mouthfeel: Plenty of carbonation available to play on the tongue. Mild body to compliment it. A creamier mouthfeel may have improved it.

Overall: A good beer from Ommegang. The malt balanced fairly nicely with the chilies but the mouthfeel and body were lagging.

Ommegang does it again. I love almost all their beers. Not because they are (necessarily!) shining examples of a particular type or style of brew, but because they are not afraid to try new things. Their recipes really are one-of-a-kind.

This one is no exception. Like other Ommegang's this will not appeal to everyone, even those who really enjoy unique beers. But don't let the reviews stop you from trying it if you can.

A huge punch of spice and a complex flavor overall. Hard to describe but very refreshing and well, just dang tasty. And the bottle is really coool.

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Corked bottle into a tulip glass, colour is a ruddy ruby brown, quite dark with a good head retention and lacing, lots of curtains.

S- moderate roasty notes, a firm peppery character, a touch of spice and cherries. Hearty, but not tons of hop character coming through, some yeasty notes mixing with the peppers. Dark chocolate.

T- good maltiness, then the flavour becomes quite dominated by the anchos, not altogether spicy but flavour is certainly there with a hearty, dry spicy character, dried chilies. Some slight caramel biscuit at the start then more of a roasty chili earthy character, tending toward a slightly astringent finish, some resiny aspects. But a solidly balanced ale that drinks well.

M- moderate/high carbonation, filling and soft. Helps takes the edge off the chilies, and the beer itself is quite substantial, but it drinks fairly nicely, finish is a bit stripping and one dimensional.

A good beer in terms of having a hearty chili character while trying to maintain a semblance of balance, bitterness is there bit the hops, and to a lesser degree the malts struggle to get past the anchos which comprise most of the flavour. An intense and interesting beer, but in several ways it could be a more complete and interesting offering, worth a try though.

Deep red/brown colour, 2 fingers eggshell head, lots of lace also. Smell is malty with dark fruit, plum with raisin and spice, brown sugar, dark bread, yeasty with no real impact from the pepper here. Taste is spicy and yeasty, chili is much more present here, earthy fruits mixed with late palate candy sugar, moderate bitterness as well, less good than the nose implies however. High carbonation, medium-light body. Pretty good stuff, not great but certainly drinkable, I probably won't grab another but was nice to have.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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!

Served in a snifter at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is an amber color with some vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Bananas, cloves, a little fruitiness, toasted malts, caramel, and a little spice.

Taste: Nice maltiness and spice that hoes well with the hefe or Belgian yeast. Delicious.

Mouthfeel: Silky smooth, creamy, medium to full bodied, tingly hop bitterness, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Pretty nice take on the style. Good to see a non hopped version of this style. I'll have another one of these.

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....

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.

Pours a deep meet hue with a good three inches of white fluffy head. Great head retention and visible lacing all around the glass. You can definitely taste the ancho chilies very subtly. Has some nice esters on the nose and on the finish as well. Drinks pretty well and does not kill your palate. I would drink this again if they brewed it.

A - As a GOT fan, I love the bottle design. Makes you feel like you're drinking from an alehouse in Westeros! All jokes aside, it's a amber color, a little cloudy and frothy, but I think it fits in the theme of the book and show.

S - Smell is interesting. A light blend of fruit and spices. I found it very welcoming and build the excitement to drinking it.

T - May be a little light for those expecting a full punch of spices, but I enjoyed it. A hint of bitters at the beginning, then it warms up to you.

M - Relatively smooth going down. Like drinking water.

O - I suppose it's my fanboyism talking, but I was very excited to drink this beer, and it didn't disappoint.

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.

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!!!!

Big creamy frothy head hits almost 2 fingers before fading fairly quickly like a typical Belgian then stops. Hazy mahogany brown color.

Nose nice Belgian, plenty of fruity esters, big peppery spices phenols, sweet candy malts, hint caramel like, very faint ancho chili.

Taste brings sweet candi sugar and candy malts, caramel, mild creamy fluffy malt too, creamy wheat I think. Then esters and phenols, fruit esters, nice peppery zesty phenols, mild booze warmth and very faint pepper heat, but don't really get ancho chili flavor. Little yeasty note, typical Belgian strong our tripel like. Finish is sticky syrupy, mild peppery heat and peppery phenols, little yeast and candy sugar lingering.

Mouth is fuller bod, sticky syrupy, lots of effervescent carb maybe too much, touch of booze warmth and pepper heat.

Overall ok, nice for a Belgian strong or tripel but not much for ancho chili flavor, just a hint of heat.

750 ml bottle purchased from LCBO for $9.95 CDN. Served fairly cold into glassware.

Appearance - hazy and muddy dark brown color with shades of red blended in. Enormous 4 finger head is poured and has impressive retention time. Streaky lacing left inside the glass.

Smell - grainy aromas some molasses blended in. Slightly metallic smelling

Taste- kinda like the nose with a lasting earthy bitterness throughout. Some caramel flavour blended in, but mostly a strong bitter hops presence. Some floral aspects. Doesn't really work for me.

Mouthfeel- smooth with medium carbonation. On the heavier side as well.

Overall - not a bad beer, but not worth the hefty price tag. Preferred the other game of thrones beer my a significant margin.

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.

Pour: really dark like a lot of beers with a lot of rye in the ingredients with a white loose head.

Appearance: This has the feel of a belgium style beer from the packaging to the look on the head to the taste even the smell.

Smell: Took a couple sniff of this and got that belgium aroma of sweet and spice.

Taste: picked up a big sweet malt appearance with a light hop presence. I also get a light spice im guessing is from the ancho chilli but mainly spice from the rye.

Overall: This was a good brew to start the day off very easy drink.

750 corked and caged. As God and the monks that at least inspired Cooperstown intended. It pours opaque medium brown with a creamy light tan head. Smell is peppers, bread, The taste is an intense pepper up front that quickly fades to a smooth bready, biscuity flavor. Very nice, very interesting combination of different things going on. Overall, I like this. It is a really surprising combination of flavors, but one that works much more than I expected of a "stunt" beer, be it a stunt due to the HBO tie-in or the use of peppers and the incorporation of "fire" in the name. My hat is off, I enjoy being surprised, at least pleasantly, and today I was.
