COOPERSTOWN, N.Y.—Brewery Ommegang and HBO Licensing & Retail have introduced the latest beer of their collaborative collection impressed by the award-winning drama Game of Thrones! Mother of Dragons, a beer brewed for Daenerys Targaryen, is the third beer on this yr’s Royal Reserve Collection, a collection of 4 restricted launch beers, every designed and brewed as an homage to one among 4 epic figures engaged within the battle for the Seven Kingdoms.
Brewed and blended for a frontrunner who takes what’s hers with fireplace and blood, Mother of Dragons is a mix of a smoked porter and a Belgian kriek, representing the smoke and fireplace that Daenerys has unleashed on her opponents. The beer will probably be accessible all through Ommegang’s distribution community on September 28 each on draft and in 750ml bottles and the prompt retail value for a bottle is $12.99.
“Mother of Dragons represents in beer one among our favourite characters from Game of Thrones. Daenerys’s ascent from obscurity has been one of the crucial inspiring storylines of the present, and we’re thrilled to launch a mix that embodies the character traits which have underpinned that rise,” stated Doug Campbell, Brewery Ommegang president.
Mother of Dragons pours a deep ruby-tinted mahogany with a creamy tan head. Aromas of chocolate lined cherries intertwine with delicate smoke and roasted malt. The taste is wealthy with tart cherry up entrance resulting in a middle palate of semi-sweet chocolate then resolving to delicate smoke and gentle sweetness. The mouthfeel is luxuriously creamy and full, and the end is semi-dry with lingering notes of smoke and cherry sweetness. Mother of Dragons is 6.5% ABV and pairs properly with smoked gouda and charcuterie, braised meats, and wealthy desserts like flourless chocolate cake and cherry cheese cake.
The Royal Reserve Collection options 4 model new beers within the brewery’s Game of Thrones-inspired collection with HBO. All of the beers will probably be accessible on draft and in 750ml bottles. The collection started in April with Hand of the Queen, a barleywine, and was adopted in June by Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, a bitter blonde mix. Following the discharge of Mother of Dragons, the ultimate beer will probably be introduced later this yr.
