In a fantasy world, we are going to sample the second beer from Ommengang Brewery and Games of Thornes. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this craft brewery. If you have not read them, please, do so to get to know craft brewery. Let us get into Take The Black Stout.
This stout has a jet black color with a nice constant tan head. The aroma has a roasted chocolate notes. The taste has a sweet chocolate with a hint of creamy caramel with a nice chocolate dry aftertaste. It is a nice sipping stout.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
A stout as dark as the winters that once engulfed Westeros. As robust as the men who swear their oaths at the Weirwood Tree. Chocolate and caramel sweetness are balanced by hop bitterness roasty, woodsy notes, and an earthy finish.

In closing, I brought two bottles when it was released. I had the one right away and I just saved this bottle for a raining day. I wanted to share my thoughts on this brew. I am a huge fan of the show. I was really disappointed with the first release. This was something else. I love the story behind the Night’s Watch. I have to say Ommegang Brewery went up and beyond making this beer good. I love the creamy chocolate and notes caramel. It is a nice beer to have after dinner or a sipping beer while relaxing. I aged this bottle for a year from when I picked it up. It held up really well and it did not change in the bottle. I was pretty disappointed with that but it is still an awesome beer. Good Job! If you can find a bottle, pick it up. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
