  • Pour: The Mother Of Dragons pours a deep, opaque ruby red / mahogany brown with 1+ finger, sustained, frothy, and firm light mocha head with soapy lacing.
  • Nose: The nose is characterized by tart, sweet, malty, and smoky notes.  There are aromas of chocolate covered cherries, plum, rich malt, cocoa, coffee, and light smoke.
  • Taste: The taste of the Mother Of Dragons follows the nose with lots of sweet, fruity, tart, smoky, and rich earthy flavors.  There are notes of tart cherry juice, lemon juice, plum, sweet and rich chocolate, light coffee, and caramel.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium to full-bodied with good carbonation, the mouthfeel of the Mother Of Dragons is frothy and smooth with a slightly tart and dry finish.

Overall pairing: The Ommegang Mother Of Dragons is a very unique, complex, yet drinkable brew... great for the power metal onslaught and subject matter of Seven Kingdom's "The Fire Is Mine"!  'Nuff said!
