350. Ommegang Take the Black Stout

Two weeks ago, my buddy David Richmond showed me a beer, Ommegang's Take the Black Stout, and told me he was looking forward to it - because he's a big fan of "Game of Thrones".  I think most of my friends forget that I don't watch the show!!!

But, what happened that day: I heard about Ommegang Brewery. Then, between Ryan Miller and I, we started going out of our way to find them. 

That all being said, I'm generally not a big stout guy. But, I can deal with this one. The bitter is almost all immediately up front. Once that subsides, I can taste a nice chocolate finish with a hint of caramel. It's not something I'll probably ever drink again, but I'm happy to drink it tonight.
