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.

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.

~Aroma of red grapes, prune, raisin, spice, yeast. ~Pours a murky amberish, brownish, orange color with lasting creamy off white head. ~Spicy rye flavor, Raisin like fruitness, earthy spicy hop. ~Medium light bodied with high CO2, dry finish. Lingering spicy finish. ~Interesting and tasty beer. Glad I got to try it but wouldnt buy it again.

Pours a dark red with a thick off white head. Got the aroma nice spices and rye. The flavor has a nice balance of sweet malt, spice, and a light bitter hop bite with a nutty touch to it. Goes down real smooth with a little bitter aftertaste. Overall a worthy brew for House Targaryen. Fire and Blood!!

In bottle .. this beer was just OK. Aroma at first while a little cold was not good (almost like wet dog), though as it warmed, the spice notes started to come out. The beer was quite light bodied, and the chilies were a little too subtle. I hoped to enjoy this beer, but it was OK at best.

The aroma is solid with malt hops and fruit. The appearance is amber. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall good.

Really malty with a bit of spice and taste of husk and bread. Lacks a bit of hops and other bitterness but makes up in the other end ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Battleship. Pours a cloudy reddish brown/amber color with an off white head. Aroma is of yeast, spices, clove and a little orange peel. Heavier palate. Flavors are of malts, yeast, grain, clove and a little booze.
