Ommegang Fire and Blood: 6.5 - Finally a Game of Thrones beer that actually has substance. The chili and spice her really give this beer a unique taste, but it doesn’t make it too powerful like say a Dogfish Head beer might. You still get a nice beer with your spice, and while it pains me as a fan to prefer the Targaryen beer – I do.

Editor’s Note: Apologies for lack of Wine/Spirit review this past weekend – PAX East destroyed me, and I was not able to get an article ready.

Ommegang Take the Black Stout: 5.0 - Much like it’s Blonde Ale made for the Game of Thrones promotion – this stout can be summed up in a single word – inoffensive. While it’s certainly not a bad stout, from Ommegang you are a little disappointed that they couldn’t do something better. Rather than risk a stout which some may like while others hate they took a general approach to appeal to masses – which while I understand, doesn’t leave me pleased about it.

Samuel Adams Cream Stout: 7.0 - To be fair I can only vaguely recall one other ‘cream’ stout that I’ve had, but as far as stout’s go this is supremely drinkable and enjoyable. While it may lack some of the more well developed stout tastes that you get from the bigger beers, this is just a great beer to crack open and enjoy.

Samuel Adams Black Lager: 5.0 - I was hoping for a Guinness situation here as their black lager is fantastic (and I will often prefer it to the standard/imperial stouts); however this is middling at best – if anything this is a sign that others should do more black lagers to beat ol’ sam.

We’ve never done a white rum on here, so to start let’s go with something that’s fairly new to the market as well. The stipulation being that while we may be new to reviewing white rums, unlike what this rum would want you to feel, we were not born yesterday, and we know that white rums can do much better than this.

Berkshire Cabin Fever Ale: 5.0 - Of Berkshire’s beers this is likely my least favorite. Their scotch ale is great, and Lee and I are fans of their coffeehouse porter, and the very drinkable Steel Rail. However this winter style ale just lacks a great taste in flavor or drinkability.
