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.

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

Pours amber with a bit of lacing head. Lots of pepper and hops on the nose make for a very interesting scent. The taste is spicy and bitter reminiscent of a rye beer. Overall it finishes a bit weak but is a great beer and I would have lots more

Surprisingly good given that it is full of black pepper. Balanced just right so that the pepper acts as the hop, without overpowering the balance.

Lemke10 (793) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Beer made with black pepper sounds too interesting not to try. It pours a cloudy medium brown color with a strong scent of malts and black pepper which continues into the taste. It does have a slightly bitter taste. Something new and interesting to try that would go well with a beef meal but not so well by itself.

The pepper starts as just a hint of spice jazzing up a plain pale, but it really accumulates and warms up the sinuses. Not at all subtle but weirdly balanced. A tasty drink for winter if you really love pepper. It would be fantastic with a good cut of meat.

this brew was tasty, but no so much that its going to be my ’go to pale’ as the label states. poured a dark beer. was very smooth. good brew. So black pepper is the ’spice’ I don’t see it.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2012 I think somebody spilled the pepper shaker into my beer. Interesting aroma, nice color, and smooth initial taste, but way too much pepper. Don’t think I even finished it.

I get all pepper pretty much, it overpowers everything else. Did not enjoy this but I applaud the attempt

Thanks to GhostFace for this bottle. Cheers, Neal! Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head. Nose is light caramel, maybe some biscuit, and some McCormick pepper shakers. Flavor starts off with some mild malt, but pepper and more pepper really refuse to let any other aspect come through. Medium in body and not my thing.
