Brewery Ommegang's Game of Thrones Beer, Part II
Meet Ommegang's Take the Black Stout.
MyBeerBuzz.com just shared the news that Brewery Ommegang has released their second beer for their Game of Thrones series. While the brewery’s inaugural Game of Thrones beer was a blonde ale called Iron Throne, this new one is deemed Take The Black Stout, a 7% ABV stout brewed with star anise and licorice root. Per the beer’s label:
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 & caramel sweetness are balanced by hop bitterness, roasty woodsy notes and an earthy finish.
Gothamist reports that the label was designed by a52, the studio that created the opening credits for the show. It sounds like a fine pairing for some of those epic Game of Thrones feasts.
