Yes, a straight up 4.0 from a draft tulip at Standard Market. Body is solid and dark red, even brown, under a stable eggshell head. The beer menu did not mention chiles, and I could not name them in the nose or taste. I did a rich malty smell with what I thought was a tang of sour cherry. The taste was quite dense and complex. A little stone fruit ester against a slightly citrusy hop load. I counted the spicy taste as coming from its ale yeast and maybe some wheat or rye, again missing out on chile. Finished with notes of cinnamon and red wine.

Part of limited edition 2 pack with collectible glass. Pours a nice big foamy bubbly beige head and has a dark amber appearance. Lots of dirty lacing remains. Lively carbonation. Aromas of toasted malts, spices, earthy and herbal hops. Flavours are dry/dark fruits, resin and herbs, spices, a little bit of Belgian yeast and light coffee and chocolate hints. Some mild bitterness on the palate, with subtle spicy notes giving it a mild warming sensation. Quite smooth and easy to drink. Another great Game of Thrones beer from this series.

On tap @ Barleycorn. Quite a clouded looking one this, deep dark ruby brown in color and a nice lacing lasting off-white head. Smells kinda Belgian. Dark caramel and chocolate. Some yestiness and traces of cocoa. Nice smelling aroma. Yeah, it’s a nice dubbel this. Tastes pretty good with lots of subtle small Belgian flavors. Chocolate, cocoa, dark candied sugar, some dry fruitiness. It’s nice and oily in the mouth while about average on the carbonation. Traces of burnt rye and hay in the finish. Liked this one. 16.06.2015

3.8
nuplastikk (6511) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 24, 2016
Tap at Dexters. Filtered brown-amber body. Big, foamy off-white head. Interesting beer. Delicate fluffy body. Interesting meld of amber, fruity ancho pepper, rye, Belgian yeast. Zesty, spicy, some definite fruity pepper tones, but no real heat. A solid beer, lots of depth. Well executed.

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
