"Inspired by Jon Snow, this barrel-aged imperial stout is brewed to sustain a leader through a long, dark night," Brewery Ommegang's website says. "The beer pours jet black with a thick tan head, and has aromas of roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate blend with those of oak, bourbon, and vanilla."
King in the North is the last of four special beers in the brewery's Game of Thrones-inspired Royal Reserve Collection -- a series of four limited-release beers designed and brewed as an homage to characters battling for control over the Seven Kingdoms.
Previous Game of Throne beers include a barleywine called Hand of the Queen, a sour blonde blend called Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, and a smoked porter and kriek blend called Mother of Dragons.
But if you want all four of these beers, there's also a gift pack available at select retailers. It features one 12-ounce bottle of each of the four Royal Reserve Collection beers and a collectible

glass, and retails for $25.
