In the end, I always get excited when these beers are released from Ommegang. I love their beers but there are times when they put one out a beer that I just feel it is not worth the price. The beer is good but not worth the price. Overall, they make some killer beers. This brew is really good and it will sell because of the Games Of Thrones. It is kind like their Abbey. I just feel like it is missing something. It is a little different brew. If you can find it, I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
