Take the Black Stout: more reason to join the Night’s Watch

Several months ago I write a post about HBO and Ommegang Brewery creating “Game of Thrones” themed beer with the first being Iron Throne.

Now the brewery back with another addition to the “Game of Thrones’ beer line with Take The Black Stout.

Take the Black is in reference to the Night’s Watch, a military order dedicated to holding The Wall and being line of defense between Westeros and what lurks from the northern borders. Members of the Night’s Watch only wear black.

According to the Ommegang website, the stout has 7 percent alcohol and brewed with caramel, chocolate and roasted barley malts. The taste includes chocolate, coffee, rich malts and balanced roastiness and a touch of fruitiness.

For beer lovers and GOT fans who would like to know where they could find the stout, they can go to the brewery’s website and find a locator.
