COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black, cracked, stuffed in a sack, boiled and cold-infused. We’ve braided the assertive presence of hops with the stimulating character of fresh black pepper. Not so much a kick in the shorts as a hop lover’s wake-up call, our Knot Stock might just become your go-to pale.

dekester1 (309) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Poured a slightly cloudy amber with a nice frothy head that faded slowly to nice lacing. Aroma was malty with hints of piney hops and black pepper. The taste was very interesting - malty up front and then movement into moderate hops mixed with a light peppery hue. Mouth was decent. Overall, this seemed like an amber/vienna with some souping up with the hops and pepper. Not too bad!

SirADNielsen (8949) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle @ Greg’s house picked up in the Midwest. Pours a hazy dull reddish orange appearance with a khaki head. Peppery, herbal, straw, spicy aroma. A bit tangy, peppery, somewhat bready, light caramel flavor. Kind of strange.

Iphonephan (3066) - McLean, Virginia, USA - JUN 24, 2013

wlajwl (3772) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Aroma is citrus, wheat/barley malts and a definite spice/black pepper element. The flavor is citrus, malts, strong black pepper and a tangy finish.

Super sustaining head with such a presence of pepper in the aroma and pallete. Not too hoppy and gets better as you go but almost a novelty beer that makes your mouth water

valpoaj (614) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Pours a ruddy, particulate filled brown - kind of looks like sewer water - with a puffy light tan head with significant staying power. Aroma is sweet with some spice mixed in - honey, malt, pepper...it works. Flavor is definitely a bit odd - a bit of a roller coaster between sweet malt and bitter hop, with a lot of spice at the end. Ends with a long, bitter finish. Palate seems appropriate for the beer - maybe slightly thin. Interesting drink - just not quite sure what this is supposed to be!

Ungstrup (29172) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 26, 2013
Bottled. A hazy dark amber beer with a nice light tan head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and herbs. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and straw, leading to a bitter finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

kaser (2545) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2013
Poured from draft at twisted spoke. Clear orange with foamy head. Crazy taste. Cracked pepper for sure. Honey and Carmel flavors too. Malts and hops are medium. Not bad. Weird beer
