We Taste Tested The New ‘Game Of Thrones’ Beer, Three-Eyed Raven Dark Saison

If you can’t wait until Sunday for the return of “Game of Thrones,” you may have luck tempering your excitement by sipping on the latest official beer produced for the series, a dark saison ale by the name of “Three-Eyed Raven.”

As with previous beers produced for HBO’s hit show, Three-Eyed Raven is the brainchild of Brewery Ommegang, a New York brewery that specializes in Belgian-style suds. And just like the show’s own three-eyed raven, a quick glance at the beer reveals a mysterious, brooding creature.

Before you take flight in search of your own bottle, read on for our take on the beer, a sample of which HBO and Brewery Ommegang sent The Huffington Post to review.

HuffPost’s tasting panel consisted of eight people across the beer spectrum, including an admitted wine drinker, a home brewer, two noted Denver beer bloggers, and a professional brewer at Avery Brewing Co.

In Stark contrast to the three-eyed raven of the show, you’re unlikely to gain special powers or any clear insight if you spend too much time with its boozy cousin, which rings in at 7.2 percent alcohol by volume.

As you’ll note from the above photo, Three-Eyed Raven pours deep, murky, and dark. Darker than the cloaks that enrobe the men of the Night’s Watch. Darker, even, than George R.R. Martin’s black sense of humor.

The appearance, however, belies the beer’s flavor itself, which reviewers described as more of a strong, bitter wheat. Initial flavors of light citrus fruit quickly dissipated into a dry, hoppy finish with quite a few tannins. Literature accompanying our samples described that hoppy finish as “herbal” with notes of “dry rye,” and while some panelists enjoyed it, others found it a little too bitter. Readers who don’t enjoy hops would be well advised to age their bottles a couple months, which should mellow that flavor significantly.

A thick, well-developed tan head rested comfortably atop our pours, though on our chilled sample the nose was barely perceptible. In a slightly warmer bottle, one reviewer found aromas of banana, phenols, and caramel, though they weren’t immediately apparent unless you’re really looking for them.

game of thrones beer

While the pairing notes supplied to HuffPost recommended “roasted chicken and pork,” and “grilled vegetables, goat cheese and smoked gouda,” our panel went an entirely different direction and imagined enjoying this beer with a nice Sunday brunch. Think hearty buckwheat pancakes with maple syrup, said one participant, or a savory apple tart with green chile.

So is Three-Eyed Raven worth seeking out ahead of the show’s April 12 premiere? Our reviewers said “yes” for the novelty factor at an MSRP of $ 9.50, but were otherwise on the fence, especially at any higher price point. We recommend buyers age the beer for a couple months for the bitterness to mellow and the malty profile to come to the forefront.

Bitter Beer and Burning Whisky: An Interview With Musician Jeremy Mage

2015-01-04-May19.04JeremyMage0211.jpg

With the release of his latest music video, psychedelic singer-songwriter Jeremy Mage offers up a year-end toast to the “hell of a year” of 2014. Featuring Reggie Watts (incoming house band leader for CBS’s The Late, Late Show) on background vocals, and a host of Hungarian shoe puppets, Waste This Year is a darkly comic, commercially successful poke in the eye to unbridled avarice.

Recently I chatted with the Grammy award-winning Mage about his latest musical endeavor.

Stroud: You describe Waste This Year as a “wounded but not dead, apocalyptic but hopeful goodbye to 2014.” Why?

Mage: A lot of things came to a head in America this year. Somehow the combination of social media, a rollercoaster global economy, and very real racial tensions — combined with having a black President — seems to have brought up a lot of the divisions in America. Stuff is coming to a head and a lot of people are feeling even though we’re more connected, we’re more apart than we’ve ever been. Although I don’t know if that perception is actually true, because I think that it’s just easier to encounter the people that we disagree with now.

Stroud: What inspired you to write this song?

Mage: The melody came first and it just came with those words. Then I had to write backwards and figure out what I was talking about. Because I’m not a nihilistic person, I had to figure out what could it mean, how Waste This Year could actually be a positive thing. So I ended up writing a drinking song, basically a toast and a little bit of throwing up hands, about making a difference. But at the same time, it’s a call to community and recognition of a common enemy.

Stroud: Who’s the enemy?

Mage: In the song, the enemy is greed – greed and social control. I imagine some kind of pub in a mining town, maybe in a Road Warrior future, and this is what they’re singing. They can’t outright call the masters to task, but they can sing and the subversive content is bubbling underneath.

Stroud: What’s your favorite line in the lyrics?

Mage: I guess “fill my veins with pomegranate wine” is one of my favorites, or “the winking dollar casts his eye on everything.” When I’m singing it live, my favorite line is “If you know the enemy, you’ll recognize your friends” because it lets me look out at the audience and indicate to them that I consider them, in that moment, my friends.

Stroud: Comedian and musician Reggie Watts sings background vocals. How did he become involved?

Mage: An artist that I work with, [Afro-beat queen] Wunmi, brought me on tour to Australia. We did that country’s biggest festival circuit, which is The Big Day Out. It’s amazing — hundreds of bands from Indie rockers all the way up to the biggest global names. We were on what’s called the Lily World stage. Reggie Watts was one of the other acts, so we got to spend quite a bit of time together. He’s a genius, just as funny off-stage as he is on, but also very tenderhearted and very considerate with a lot of humility.

We ended up going to an after party, really late at night, and finished in my hotel room. It was about 3:00 in the morning. Reggie led the others in singing Waste This Year. I got a great take that ended up being in the final mix.

Stroud: What’s next for you?

Mage: I’m supporting my record on Tummy Touch, which is Jeremy Mage and the Magi, self-titled. Waste This Year is one of the tracks and it has been a really successful single in Europe, where it’s been getting a lot of play on the radio.

Stroud: Anything more you’d like to share with readers?

Mage: The spirit of the song, the reason I say “apocalyptic but hopeful,” is because that’s the kind of crossroad humanity is at right now. We’re facing some stark choices for our survival as a species on the planet. We stand on the precipice with one foot already hanging over, but I think that the spirit of community and sharing can ultimately triumph over greed.

Duke Frat Bros From The 80s Play ‘Beer Frisbee’ And Generally Act Ridiculous (VIDEO)

The brothers of Sigma Chi at Duke University got together one afternoon in 1986, played a game of “beer Frisbee” and documented it all on what we can only assume was a fairly large videocamera.

“There’s something honest, something pure” about the game, one of the bros says.

After watching the video, we still have no idea how the game is played, just that “you don’t have to be athletic, you only have to be [an] alcoholic,” according to one of the guys.

The brothers did offer some life advice, like “All ya gotta see is some dude hit by a car or some dude buyin’ it in the teeth to catch a Fris, and that’ll put it in perspective.”

Whatever you say, bro.
