3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled sample. Black in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Aromas are of black liquorice, sweet woodsmoke, dried cherries, and dark chocolate. More of the dried fruit and anise combo on the palate, with a chalky, ashy, and herbal finish. Fairly light bodied for a stout. Alright, but I wish there was a bit more chocolate and caramel to balance out the fruit an roast.

Bottle courtesy of Ken during some Bohnanza. Pours a black body with fizzy brown lacing. Aroma is wet dog and spicy chocolate malt. Mouthfeel is medium and somewhat airy with tons of spice and yeast upfront, followed by chocolate malt, ash, roast, bitter cocoa and grain.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml corked bottle. A deep black with a large lasting broun head. Aroma of dark roasted malt, caramel, cacao and hints of coffee and dark fruit essence fill the senses. Taste is of dark roasted caramel malt with cacao and coffee flavors and some dark fruit and mild licorice undertones, a mild roasted bitterness. Palate is a smooth medium body with good carbonation. The finish is an unmistakable roasted dark malt, caramel, cacao and mild coffee, a bit of licorice with a mild roasted malt bitterness on the end for balance. Overall a good enjoyable brew to sit down and relax with, not to aggressive and nicely balance. I like.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location/Date:Bottle on 12/21/2013 split with Scott.
Appearance: Pours dark mostly opaque black with light red head.
Aroma: Aroma of licorice, light chocolate.
Taste: Licorice, light chocolate, very faint roast.
Palate:Medium light body.
Summary: I had to try this beer as it’s the second in the GoT series. It was solid, and I guess being a normal stout "ie not imperial", it was lighter in flavor than I expected. But nonetheless, pretty solid.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle. Brown-- near black-- with a big fluffy tan head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, roast, mild wood and hop bitterness. Some anise and licorice, touches of spicy belgian yeast. Flavor is a confluence of chocoolate and roast notes, sweet and spicy yeast, and faint hop bitterness. Nice, balanced, lingers a bit on the palate. Lively carbonation, as is typical of Ommegang. Medium finish, focused on roasted malt. Overall, fairly nice.
