Now you can drink like the King in the North himself.
Brewery Ommegang and HBO just announced its latest addition in its line of Game of Thrones-inspired beer. King in the North, a beer brewed for Jon Snow, is the fourth and final beer in this year’s Royal Reserve Collection, a series of four limited release beers. Each is designed and brewed as an homage to one of four epic figures engaged in the battle for the Seven Kingdoms.
King in the North is a barrel-aged stout, and will be available on Black Friday on draft and in 750ml bottles for $12.99 each. Or, you can get it in a gift pack with one 12-ounce bottle of each of the four Royal Reserve Collection beers and a collectible Game of Thrones glass for $24.99.
Just as you’d probably picture it, King in the North pours jet black with a thick tan head with aromas of roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate blended with those of oak, bourbon, and vanilla. The flavor is rich and full with notes of chocolate, vanilla, coffee, and roasted malt up front followed by smooth bourbon and a hint of oak. The finish is thick and chewy with oatmeal creaminess.
The Royal Reserve Collection began in April with Hand of the Queen, a barleywine, and was followed in June by Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, a sour blonde blend. Mother of Dragons, a smoked porter and kriek blend will arrive in September before King in the North and the gift pack.
