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.

A fruity, sweetish malt taste gives way to faint drying provided by the hops and rye. Underlying flavors of raisin and prune from the ancho chilies give way to a balanced malty and spicy finish.

EithCubes (5475) - New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2014
750mL corked and caged, got the one with the fire on the label. Nose is spicy and phenolic, clove leaking into stale air and plastic, with a fruity and slightly floral background. Better once it’s in the glass, some chocolaty and earthy character reminiscent of dubbels and Doppeböcke, touch of yeast, and the floral character is more easily identified as buckwheat or spelt rather than hops (just as fruit is narrowed to ’stone fruit’). Pours deep, dark red-brown with a rocky, solid and dense beige head. Lightly airy medium again a little vegetal and stale, sweet but not cloying, low bitterness but a gradual drying helps expose a little bite. Yeasty despite my careful pour, with some grit. Heat from the peppers arrives late and is extremely mild (to the point I wouldn’t have guessed they were here, maybe said there was a grains of paradise addition); given the complaints I just made about vegetal and airy qualities, it probably would have been better to leave the peppers out if they were going to be used in such small quantities. Moderately creamy and a little slimy. Additionally: black peppercorn and light lavender, the previously suspected malt backed off and lost most all of its complexity, but there is light fruit and lighter citrus. Disappointing.

Ommegang Game Of Thrones - Fire and Blood is a worthwhile red ale but nothing special. Pour is a dark red (hence the Blood in the name) with a thick head that is almost too thick. Taste is malty with some fruity sweetness and a nondescript spiciness in the end (but not unpleasant). The beer comes in a bomber bottle adorned with a artfully depicted dragon which I assume has something to do with the Game of Thrones TV show. Fire and Blood is a tasty red ale great for drinking with meals.

Aurelius (4996) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 16, 2014
Big, yeasty aroma. Great label, Belgian bomber. Hazy, tea-colored brew. thin bone-colored head. Tangy, mouldering, tannic. Spritzy-peaty. Medium to slightly light body. OK, but I was looking for more. New Leaf Market.

On tap into a tulip. Absolutely beautiful dark red color with a thin lacing head. Chili is apparent in both the aroma. Which is mixed with floral notes, and the taste. Chilis are a little too up front, but the aftertaste is nice mixed wither he smooth character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
