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.

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!!!!

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

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

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.

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

A: deep red; fluffy, 1 finger head that dissipated slowly; nice lacing;

S: clove and coriander are prevalent up front; raisins, raisins, and sweet malt are also there with ancho chili in the background;

T: similar to aroma; clove and coriander more in the background; spiciness from the rye and chilis is there as well; really interesting to have the chili heat as part of the finish - noticeable, but not in your face;

M: creamy carbonation; medium bodied; smooth;

O: really interesting, complex beer; would pair well with a lot of food;

A: Dark brown like a few shades below dark wood stain. A little tinge of amber when held to the light. Lots of carbonation, 4 fingers of dirty brown tinged white head, like dirty snow, nice lacing.

S: Belgian yeasts, a plastic almost bubble gum German wheat beer scent.

T: Belgian yeasts, a plastic almost bubble gum wheat beer taste, light apples, a light dull bitterness that lingers on the tongue.

M: Medium bready almost rubbery body, medium high carbonation.

O: A unique American Amber ale with Belgian yeast qualities. Taste is unique. More than anything I was glad to find this Omegang brewery beer in Canada, which is a rare find here.
