COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fire & Blood is a 6.8% ABV Red ale, brewed with pilsner, Cara-60, Midnight Wheat, flaked rye and spelt. Assertive hopping includes CTZ, Styrian Golding and German Tettnang hops. Spiced with de-seeded Ancho chilies. Fire & Blood has a deep, dark red hue with a persistent, creamy, off-white head. Aromas of ripe fruit, raisins, malt & slight spice, followed by a slightly floral and spicy hop character. A fruity, sweetish malt taste gives way to faint drying provided by the hops & rye.

Light reddish brown pour with a thick light tan head. Malty nose with a slight hint of vegetables. Taste is ok - fairly muted considering there are Ancho chilies in this. Pretty nice spicy rye finish.

Draft, what is game of thrones? A nerd thing Iím guessing .. . Pours a deep copper .. Quite boozy in the throat .. Caramel and rusted pot .. A novelty beer and it shows- its sad to see how low ommegang has fallen since their takeover... . Then call me Johnny Sawhorse!! ...?

Poured from bottle, had a dragon on it, pretty sweet, pours a clear dark brownish red with a thick off white head and lacing in the glass, aroma is pretty nutty with a decent amount of spice and fruit mixed in as well, the flavor has a sweeter front end with a lot of spice in the finish, almost too much, a little potpourri like for my taking, meh.

750ml c&c bottle shared by Mike. Poured a super cleared deep red/amber body with a smaller creamy beige head. Aroma was mostly malt forward, grains, dough, pine resin, citrud rind, , medium toast. Flavor is the same as the aroma. Meh

UPDATED: APR 15, 2014 Bottle. Spoiler Alert: Joffrey dies! Pours very dark red with off white head. A bit overcarbonated. Nose/taste of dry raisin, dark fruit, fig, rye, doughy malt, light toast, banana, green vegetal pepper and light spicy hop. Medium body. Dry finish.

Pours deep brown with red highlights, nice frothy big head. Nose is doughy, dark fruit, Belgian yeast, a pepper spice note. Taste is very bready and malty but not sweet, some Belgian yeast, some dark fruit in the middle. The finish I get a touch of capsaicin spice, and a pepper vegetal note, very drying on the finish. High carbonation and effervescent, medium body fits the brew. I want to like this, as the first 2/3 are good, but the finish and especially the aftertaste I'm not a fan of. There's that drying capsaicin and vegetal note, not loving it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour reddish copper with a large tan head. The aroma has nuttiness, pepper meatiness (not spice), fruity Belgian yeast, toasty malt, light toffee and light berries. It has a medium / full body with a lot of carbonation. The flavor begins with peppery spice, pepper meat, fruity sweetness, yeast that seems very Ommegang and a bit of spicy hops - seems like many different spice traits here without having much heat. The finish is dry and crusty and spice is left lingering on the palate. Enjoyable.

Poured a ridiculously huge head out of the bottle. Basically a whole pint glass!! Now five minutes later and Iíve got half a glass of beer, a quarter glass of foam and a whole bunch of lace. Reddish copper color. Aroma of wet straw. Rather unique flavor with the Ancho not being really obvious, but changing the typical rye character. Only so slight warming after drinking. Sorry to say, yet another GoTh disappointment after last yearís Take Back the Black Stout.

Tap. Pours a clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate complex sweet dark fruit & rye and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy yeast dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Interesting good brew.
