Spiced with de-seeded Ancho chilies. Fire & Blood has a deep, dark red hue with a persistent, creamy, off-white head.

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.

Bomber. Pours a red amber with an off white head and aroma of malt, last, and spices. Taste is malty and yeasty, with caramel, fruits, spices, and earthy notes coming through with slight touch of chilies into the finish.

Pours an amber red color with a nice beige head. Nose is fruity , sweet mixed nicely with hops . Taste is fruity, mildly peppery sweet and mixed with a nice confluence of hops and malt . Finishes on the same tasting notes, with some mild peppery notes into the moderately long ending. Very drinkable ! Quaff Score 7 / 10

Metalchopz (3014) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2016
Pours a hazy deep amber colour with lots of particles through it. Big beige head, good retention and thick creamy-foamy lacing. Toasted malt aromas with caramel and some dark fruit notes. The taste also starts with the toasted malts, going through some fruitiness and some hops appear in the finish. A pretty nice, higher-end red ale.

Sample during at Daily Growler Powell during the "5th Friday $5 Fest" on 04/29/2016. Hazy dark reddish-mahogany color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of red fruit, spice and hops. Medium body with flavors of fruity hops, chili pepper and smoky malt. The finish is hoppy and fruity with a mild chili aftertaste. Decent overall.

(Ommegang Game of Thrones #3 - Fire and Blood) Bottle 650 ml, corked and caged, from Summer Santa, thanks! Served into a big tulip, ABV 6.8% Mahogany brown red colour on the body, mostly clear, with one finger of off-white head on top, with good density and retention. Arom aof caramel, lots of red fruits, marmalade, berries, light alcohol after some deep sniffing. Taste is mildly sweet, with plenty of red fruits, sugars, marmalade, berries, toffee, I can’t taste any peppers though. Medium body with soft carbonation, a bit sticky on the palate. Nice one.

On tap. Pours a hazy, chestnut brown with a red hue and a medium, creamy, long lasting, beige head that laces. Sweet aroma of dark fruit, caramel malt, bread and rye. Sweet flavour of dark fruit, caramel malt, bread, a hint of roast and a dry, spicy, mildly bitter finish. Medium body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Not bad.

hotstuff (4802) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 12, 2016
Rated on 7-26-2015 (Corked and caged bottle) This beer’s appearance is a huge smooth ivory head that mostly diminished, amber transparent body, very little carbonation observed, floaties, and a good amount of lacing adorns my glass. The aroma presents rye, fruity, spicy, pepper, and malt. The flavor is spice, rye, chili, rye, dark fruits, and yeast. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. A drinkable beer with a good flavor and it is worth trying.

When I first saw the Valar Morghulis brew, I asked the cashier where I was buying the beer if he’d had it. He told me he had not, but that it was probably the best Game of Thrones beer because it was closest to their regular Dubbel, and that some of the other Game of Thrones beers were "brewed with some crazy stuff." This one is like that in that it incorporated Ancho Chiles, and they can be tasted just as you swallow, and they’re there just enough to take a point off. The rest of the experience is great; strong but not too strong, rich in color, and smells great.
