You can drink like Worf...
Ready your bat'leth and hop on your War Bird, because Klingons now have an official beer. The Federation of Beer have announced that, pursuant to their official partnership with the Star Trek franchise, they are commissioning Warnog, the official beer of the warrior race. The Guardian has the news, with the "Roggen Dunkel" style ale containing hints of clove, banana and caramel.
The Federation, who previously launched a Vulcan Ale last year, said that the beer "incorporates rye malt into a modern Dunkelweizen grain bill, creating a flavor profile that is both familiar and unique. Warnog's aroma is predominantly mild banana and clove produced by the German wheat yeast, supported by subtle sweet malt character from the use of Munich malt. The flavor draws heavily from the blending of the rye malt and traditional clove character, creating a very rich and unique flavor. The inclusion of wheat and caramel malts help to round out the mouthfeel of this beer, making this Dunkelweizen hearty enough to be called a Klingon Warnog."
Warnog was the beer of choice for Klingons in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. You can find out more about the Federation of Beer here.
