Game Of Thrones Take the Black Stout label

Last month, we told you about Take the Black Stout, the second Game Of Throne-themed beer (the first, Iron Throne Ale, was released in March).

Over the weekend during San Diego Comic-Con, HBO and Brewery Ommegang hosted a special advanced tasting of the upcoming limited edition beer, and announced that the brew will launch nationwide through bars, restaurants, grocery, and beverage stores in mid- to late-September. It will be available on draft and in 750ml bottles, with the retail price of $8.50 per bottle.

Take the Black Stout is inspired by the men of The Night’s Watch, including Jon Snow, who “take the Black” to guard The Wall and protect the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros from their enemies in the North. The Take The Black Stout’s label features the sacred Weirwood tree where Jon Snow and other followers of the old gods take their oaths to the Night’s Watch.

Some details about the brew…

Take the Black Stout is deep black in hue, with a full tan head. Aromas include dark chocolate, caramel malt, earthy hops, and a touch of fruitiness. Tastes include chocolate, dark coffee, and rich malt character. The beer has light, balanced roastiness aroma and taste. The clean hop bitterness converges with a slight woody character and spiciness. The finish offers sweet malt character giving way to spicy, earthy, hop bitterness.

Once the beer launches, go to www.ommegang.com and click on the “find a beer” to find a retailer near you.
