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.

This is the 3rd installment in some narrative. I’m a big fan of Ommegang and I liked the previous stout they put out. This one? Not so much. It is like some Belgian Ale without the Belgian Ale. Blood red hue. Flat head. A taste of rosemary, a tinge of cherry. It lacks body and a real depth. It feels like an ale you would eat at some mid-level fancy place than at some palace with dragons. It’s an alright beer but for Ommegang a bit of a mistep. Like Star Wars Episode 6.

Bottle, picked up somewhere in the US. Deep reddish colour, white foam. Soft mouthfeel, spicy, I guess rye. Maybe chillies although I didn’t get any heat. Big Belgian yeast. Balanced hopping. Quite restrained and yet nice.

This corked and caged bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of all foam finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent cola brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The balanced aroma was brown malt and musty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The nice flavor contained notes of toffee sweet mild hops and brown malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

I think this was the most underwhelming of the series so far. The recipe just kinda missed for me. It was easy to drink, but didn’t really have any depth of complexity.

Pours plum color with large cream head. Dark fruit and some malt in nose. More hoppy and bitter than I expected.

Tselloufc88 (243) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle from Petaluma Market, CA. Aromas of red fruit, funky yeast. Taste is red berries, some herbal resinous, and a slightly spicy finish. Definitely tastes 6.8%. Drinkable, but subtle for its strength.

mcberko (9647) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2015
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours an opaque dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma brings out notes of spices, earthy bready malt, and light red fruits. Flavour is unusual, with notes of spices, earthy, bubblegum, and an astringent hippiness on the finish. Not sure the flavours are in harmony here. There’s a weird spicy herbal quality to this. Not convincing, but certainly not bad.

Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark amber color, hazy, with compact head. This red ale has a lean and clean caramel profile, rather dry, it could as well be a Bock; the bitterness is moderate; there could be a light smoke touch in the aroma. It has a not of sweetness in the final, a spicy touch, and mild fruity esters.
Balanced, elegant, well made although not the most complex beer.

Draught. Reddish murky brown with creamy off-white head, light caramel aroma, low carbonation, caramel taste, longish finish. Very nicely packaged brew.
