Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.80%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

750 ml. Bottle Cork and cage.

A deep brown color with dark amber and ruby highlights. The super fluffy, high, creamy sea foam topping is rather impressive. Staying power is supreme....never really recedes completely. Lots of creamy clumps of foam left at all times. Amazingly sticky and clumpy lacing. Just the way it should be.

A very dense, malty nose at first, caramel, spices, burnt wheat and rye, oats,apple cider, tangy and earthy hops equals a very wild and interesting aroma.

The light and ultra crisp mouthfeel really packs a punch. Dry, earthy hops, crisp malt and added herbs, spices and rye really intensifies the earthy bite. Very smooth and light, airy effect in the finish, crrtainly dry from beginning to end. A crispy sweet malty taste happens first, sour earthy tonesfrom the hops and yeast, very spicy from the ancho chilies and old-world hops. Candied apples, raspberries, white wine....certainly adds up to some seriously complex within this light bodied ale.

A very tart, herbal and spicy brew, solid malty body, dry edges, funky yeast and hop combo makes this endlessly interesting. I feel like my fellow reviewers might've missee some of the subtle but excellent intricate complexities of this style.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Clear but dark bronze-brown with a huge khaki foam.

Smell is zucchini bread while the spice is more phenol than heat, with toasty accents.

On the palate this is bready and toasty with a big frothy body. I also get something nearing coffee and cocoa accents, with a slightly spicy heat on the back end as the fluffy, big round body finishes semi-dry. Hints of banana are far in the background.

This sucked far less than I had expected, and is actually quite drinkable. There's really barely any contribution from the chilies at all, if that worries you.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a an Ommegang GOT class.

Look is a slightly hazy deep red with an off site head tannish head.

Aroma is sweet candi malt with a hint of pepper at the end.

Taste matches aroma with malt caramel sweetness and a pepper after taste. A light astringency is prevelant too.

750 ml bottle. Pours brown with tall, creamy, long-lasting, beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is of yeast, piney hops, bready malt, spices and dark fruit. Body is full and tangy. Taste is of spices, Belgian yeast, herbal hops, brown sugar, toasted malt, dark fruit and coffee. Finish is long and dry. Excellent brew.
