Brewery Ommegang Three-Eyed Raven

Brewery Ommegang Three-Eyed Raven Dark Saison Ale
Cooperstown, New York

The Three-Eyed Raven is here, installment number five of Ommegang Game of Thrones Series! (You can find my thoughts on the Iron ThroneTake the Black, Fire and Blood, and Valar Morghulis here.)

Review:  The Three-Eyed Raven is a beauty, with dark tawny color and thick foamy head. The nose was full of malty, yeasty aromas with an undertone of coffee and smoke. The palate was full of dark bittersweet baking chocolate, bruleed sugar, more smokiness, and a tiny herbal hint of lemon grass. The finish was moderate in length with a bit of lingering hoppy bitterness and anise

Bottom Line: This was a nice beer, especially to be enjoyed in the springtime. Not my top pick in the GOT series, but pretty solid.
