Bottle drunk in Central Park. Deep black pour with a thick rocky tan head. The nose is quite rich. Bittersweet chocolate and a touch of light yeast derived spiciness along with some dusty elements. Roasted coffee and a bit of licorice and some berry fruitiness as well. Lingering roasty bitterness and a nice earthy coffee finish. Lovely.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bert’s
Pours a solid black with a huge fluffy tan head that persists forever. Aromas of roasted grains, dark chocolate, caramel, vanilla, licorice, light alcohol, and spicy fruity yeast esters. The flavor is caramel and dark chocolate up front with a huge roasted grain presence that at times feels a bit ashy. Licorice and an earthy hop flavor meld with a touch of dark pitted fruit. Long lingering earthy roasted bitterness sits on my palette long after each sip. Medium to thick body with a bubbly roasty mouthfeel and a spirited level of carbonation. Nice brew, a bit bubbly and carbonated for my tastes, but quaffable just the same.

750, corked and baled. Pours black with a huge fluffy, sudsy dark tan head and plenty of lace. Rich roasty nose, showing coffee and chocolate. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Dark bitter chocolate and coffee mid palate, with a pleasant earthy finish. Nice stout.

The Ommegang yeast shines through each sip of this stout so much so the yeast takes away from the typical stout tastes. In reality it seemed more like a dark Belgian ale than a stout even though the appearance was stout-like. I'm a huge fan of Ommegang, this like the last Game of Thrones ale, was a disappointment.

Black with lasting tan head and lotsa lace. Mild aroma of wood licorice roasted coffee. Roasted coffee dark chocolate lots of plummy fruit licorice and more assertive anise woody and piney hops with lingering roasted woodiness. Nice well-attenuated body and lively carbo. Very good

Dark color with finger of thick tan head. Smells a bit like a perm, horse blanket, anise, chocolate. A little spicy and funky hop in the taste with anise, chocolate. A different take, but doesn't quite hit the mark. A little too many off tastes.

Tap at GABF 2013. Poured a deep mahogany with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is weak malt and some yeast. The flavour is weak bitter with a roasted malt dry spicy hop sweet / sour palate with a hint of acid too. A very different and unusual beer.

750ml split with the wife. as we were consuming... we were noting the difference between GTFO and GOTFO. yes I know, who cares and what nots but there is a difference. Pours completely jet black with an active foam head that lends itself into a three stage pour. nose of chocolate, roasted malt, and belgian yeast earthiness. taste follows in exact order but finishes with pepper and clove. body is solid. Game of Thrones the **** out.
