4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
I had red that they were going to put our brews, in accordance with the Game of Thrones show. I heard of the Iron Throne but never saw it at any store. Then I went to Specís and was pleasantly surprised to find it and didnít realize they were putting out a series of beers. It is a quite elegant but brutal looking bottle. Strong aroma. Hints of chocolate and espresso. Brilliant head. Works as an Imperial Stout. Hazy aftertaste and wash. It really fills the palette with flavor. Simply amazing brew! Ommegang continues to put out excellent brews.

Black with a tan head. The aroma has some licorice notes as well as some chocolate. The flavor is also strong on the licorice, which I am not a fan of. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Served in a 12oz tulip glass at the Beer Revolutionís Oliver Square location pouring black in color with a small light beige head which leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild with roasted grains and chocolate and perhaps a hint of licorice. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with traces of fruit and a light roasted grain bitterness with a smooth dry finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Certainly a unique and interesting stout as I am getting some kind of Belgian feel from it.
