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.

Very nice label art consisting of the dragons on the main panel, which are a prominent feature on the show. The side panels were using a nice silver colored font, over a medieval looking background, evoking nicely the decor of Westeros. The beer came in a 22 oz bomber, with wire cage, and a cork that popped off with aloud bang. The beer poured out the color of garnet, with a translucent glow. The head formation was rather large, estimated to be three fingers thick, and quite durable too. The smell was close to a Belgian Quadrupel for me, with rich malty base evoking fruits and berries. The taste was bit less strong than the aroma suggested. I could get hints of cherry, banana, hazelnut, and vanilla in each sip. The finish was much drier than I was anticipating, which I presume is due to the use of rye and spelt. The aftertaste was quite spicy and bit smoky. If I could find one fault with this, I would say it was a little thin, and could have used a bigger body. Very nicely done red ale in a Belgian style. I am tempted to go get more while the release lasts.

Pours dark amber with rich, creamy off white head (be very careful when you pour this one). Smell of yeast, clove, spice, and chilies. In terms of taste, you get notes of roasted malts, caramel, some floral hop notes, and a bit of spice. On the palate you can taste a bit more of the chilies, as well as a bit of a rye spiciness. Medium in terms of body.

This is the first beer I’ve had that has chiles in it that I would have again. They are very fInt and provide just a hint of heat. The body is nice, the beer isn’t too sweet and overall is quite tasty.

Brown pour but in dark bar. First sip was more bitter than expected but fruity flavors more noticeable with time. Noticed no chocolate or clover flavors and definitely not stale.

Fire and Blood pours a deep orange red color with a thick frothy beige head that lasts an eternity. The aroma is dark fruit with a floral finish. The flavor has a floral front with dark fruit highlighted with raisen just after that lingers. Overall this is a tasty beer!

Mastelefish (88) - North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2014
Pours a darker red with a slowly dissipating head for a red ale. The head alone has a sting that was probably from the spices. The taste is primarily of chilli and a banana-clove feel. Bready, floral notes make up the underlying aroma. The taste is fairly bitter, but not overwhelming with an almost sweeter feel at some points of the experience. A medium and lively body with a delicious, spicy finish. Definitely a little different from the norm and a flavor adventure. Enjoy it with the series!

Very red color. Aroma is a mix of berries and banana. The taste is excellent- caramel front with a cherry/blackberry finish. The mouthfeel is poor up front as it tastes over-carbonated. finishes sweet. very pleasantly surprised with this beer.

750ml bottle. Pours a dark red with lively carbonation and a foamy beige head. Aroma is slightly spicy and fruity. Flavor is sweet in the beginning with plenty of hoppiness leading into the finish. A slight bit of spice from the chiles remains on the palate. Medium bodied. Quite intricate and very good.
