COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At the peak of summer 1631 King Gustavus Adolphus led thousands of Swedish troops into Northern Germany. Following the destruction and subsequent plundering of Brandenburg Adolphus’ army marched through the endless wheat fields en route to Bavaria. Brewed with copious amounts of red wheat, Blood ov the Kings is aromatically driven by bread, biscuit and notes of exotic fruit. Hazy and medium bodied the beer has a rich and creamy mouth feel with a dry, bitter, and slightly sweet finish. Unbound by the Reinheitsgebot Blood ov the Kings would certainly have been the vital fluid of victory for the Swedish monarch as he spilled blood across the wheat fields of Northern Europe.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2257) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 4, 2014
Blood of Kings has a hugely dank resinous sticky hop bouquet. The taste is surprising with licorice and other dark malt flavors added to the hops though the beer is a deep copper. A mindfuck kind of genre bending beer - try it at least once.

The taste is bread crusts, rye, caramel, spice, faint dried fruits. Medium bodied, dry, moderate carbonation, slight lingering bitterness. Solid.
