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.

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.
