Ommegang’s New ‘Game of Thrones’ Beer!


Feigning for something…anything Game of Thrones? Going through withdrawals? Make bridging the gap between Season 3 and Season 4 a little easier with HBO and Brewery Ommegang’s second Game of Thrones inspired collaboration beer: ‘Take the Black Stout’.

Take the Black Stout pours deep black, nearly opaque, with a full, khaki-hued head. Predominant aromas include dark chocolate, caramel malt, and rich, earthy hops. On the palate the flavors of chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts are confirmed, with the addition of a slightly woody character and distinct spiciness reminiscent of star anise and licorice.

The Facts:

Malt – Specialty Malt, Chocolate Malt, Midnight Wheat and Roasted Barley

Hops – Northern Brewer and Columbus

ABV – 7.0%

Suggested pairings – blackened chicken, Roquefort or Gorgonzola cheeses, chocolate-vanilla cheesecake, dark chocolate truffles, and any episode of Game of Thrones that features the Night’s Watch

Just in time for the holidays, Take the Black Stout makes a perfect gift for the Game of Thrones fanatic in every family! This stout can be enjoyed immediately, or can be saved until the season premier of Season 4 of Game of Thrones airs in Spring 2014! Just like the first GoT collaboration blonde ale, this stout was brewed to be very limited edition and will not last long. Swing by Healthy Living Saratoga and grab a few to stock up before they’re all gone!
