Ommegang Game Of Thrones – Take The Black Stout
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Taking a break from our Throwback Thursday feature to review a beer that would be a perfect fit for your Turkey Day meal!
Ommegang Game Of Thrones – Take The Black Stout Belgian Strong Dark Ale or Belgian Stout as they call it. First let me say that I know nothing about the show this is “based” on, the only thing I am focused on here is the beer. This pours with a nice big head, definitely looks and smells like it has some Belgian influence. Fairly sweet with a lot of fudge like flavor and a good amount of dark fruit. I was worried that I wouldn’t enjoy this too much with the anise and licorice root being advertised on the bottle. Thankfully, however, those flavors are predominate but not dominate. They actually blend very well for my tastes. This is a solid Belgian Stout, glad I picked one up.
