BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brewery Ommegang
New York, United States
ommegang.com

Style: Dubbel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Ommegang and HBO® announce the newest beer in the Game of Thrones® collaboration series. Through its first four seasons, the critically acclaimed drama has become the biggest show on HBO.

In the world of Westeros, Valar Morghulis means “all men must die.” Fans of the hit HBO show chose the foreboding phrase as the name of the newest beer in the Game of Thrones® collaboration between HBO and Brewery Ommegang. As part of a Facebook poll, fan voting determined the style and name of the next beer. An Abbey Dubbel was selected and it is perfectly represented by the “two- headed” coin given to Arya Stark by Jaqen H’ghar, one of the “Faceless Men of Braavos” – legendary assassins with the ability to change their appearances at will.

On sale October 1st, available in 750ml bottles and 1/6 barrel kegs.

L - brown with some red hues around the edges when held to the light, opaque, with a medium tan head that leaves behind some lacing.
S - Yeasty, bready, and malty, with tones of dried fruit, and slight notes of caramel and vanilla.
T - Complex. Starts off with big yeast, bread, and malt flavors followed by a good amount dried fruit flavor with notes of vanilla, caramel, and molasses mixed in.
F - Medium to full body with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O - This is a very good dubbel. Complex flavors of yeast, malt, and bread mixed well with dried fruits, caramel, molasses, and vanilla. A great way to start season 7 of Games and a great dubbel overall. Well done Ommegang.

From the bottle, it pours a mahogany color with a modest, thick head. The head lasts as you enjoy the beer. Sweetish brown sugar. The mouth gets some malt (but not overly sweet) and roasted malt flavor with a light coating on the tongue. Nice!

This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a nice looking dark brown color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that took a super long time before it dissipated to a concave clingy and somewhat foamy lacing. The smell had a sweet sticky cherry to light chocolate. Belgian sugars dance underneath a sweet sticky caramel and a light spice (I can’t exactly tell what spice it is). The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors and combined to a sweet flavoring. There’s a sweet sticky caramel to cherry aftertaste along with a sweet and dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp but not overbearing. Sticky caramel coated my tongue nicely. Overall, I say this was a pretty good dubbel I could have again.

Poured from a beautiful cork and cage bomber with GoT artwork into a tulip

L: Semi-opaque mahogany brown pour. A bit of crimson around the edges as I hold it up to the light. 3 fingers of foamy head lasts forever. Moderate lacing.

S: Toasted sugars... caramel and molasses... candy and stone fruits.

T/F: Follows the nose. Rich caramel malts... toasted marshmallow and dark fruits.. cherry and plum mixed with clove and winter spices. Mild hop bitterness saves this from being too sweet. Medium in body.. creamy, light on the tongue. Finish is sticky with more dark fruit.

O: A very tasty Dubbel... good flavor and on point for the style. Really enjoyed this one, and looking forward to hitting its sister Valar Dohaeris.
