Brewery Ommegang has once again collaborated with television network HBO to create a beer around one of the most watched shows in HBO’s history, Game of Thrones. Take the Black Stout is the second such collaboration, following in the footsteps of the incredibly popular Iron Throne.
For fans Game of Thrones, the picture on the label of Take the Black Stout shows the Weirwood tree where Jon Snow recited the oath before joining the Night’s Watch.
For fans of the beer, the description on the label of the beer is as follows: “Take the Black Stout is a 7.00% ABV stout brewed with chocolate malt, Midnight Wheat and roasted barley, hopped with Northern Brewer and Columbus hops, and spiced with licorice root and star anise.”
Want to try Ommegangs’ latest concoction? A keg of Take the Black Stout is being tapped at our South Loop tasting room later today. Bottles have popped up at a few Binny’s locations already, with most stores scheduled to receive their allotment later next week.
