COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our “Velvet M-80” is a hefty, dry hopped double-red ale with a nose full of aroma, a sticky mouthfeel, a malty middle and unctuous hop flavors. G’Knight sports a surprisingly sensuous finish for a beer of its size (8.7% ABV, 60 IBUs). It’s brewed in tribute to a fellow Colorado craft beer pioneer and Vietnam vet who died fighting a 2002 wild fire outside of our Lyons hometown. For all the details behind this tribute follow this link to www.N3978Y.com. G’Mornin’. G’Day. G’Knight.

Clear amber body with small off-white head. The aroma is light caramel sweetness and citrus hops, but light for the style. The flavor is moderately sweet, grapefruit, apricot, moderate caramel and some tea. Medium body leans to watery.

Wow. They know how to brew a can of beer. Cantastic. Canerific. This might be the best of the Oskar Blues. I gots me a case of the Oskar Blues....but this cured thats. At 4.99 for a single, might not be worth it, but this was wonderful. This did taste surprisingly sweet and balanced. It looked beautiful and tasted wonderful.

Pours a very cloudy, orangey, gold with a thick, soft white head. The aroma is very hoppy but also intensely fruity. Citrus and hops combined with a fruity malt profile. The flavor follows the aroma - lots of soft fruit, strong malts, balanced well by a ton of floral and fruity hops. The balance is impeccable. The finish is both very bitter from hops but also very fruity and sweet with malts. The after-taste is very hoppy - but not bitter. The mouthfeel is very full bodied, but nice on the tongue - not syrupy. Overall - very delicious!

From can thanks to Jrob_21. Aroma was floral hops, sweet caramel malts and a slight nutty tone. The taste had a strong bitterness along with a good amount of malt. The body was medium with a sweet alcohol finish.

Can, with a thanks to jimbowood for this, pours a clear iced tea brown with a foamy dark tan head that quickly dissipates, good lacing. Very faint and mild aroma, with little identifiable coming out. Taste is mild and well balanced, pretty much neutral between the hops and malts. Not bad on the palate, very smooth, a bit creamy, but generally uninspiring. A bit warming from the alcohol, but not much else. Been wanting to try this for some time, and this is my first OB beer, but I hope there is better to come. Not bad or anything, just ho-hum; hope OB is more careful about throwing around descriptions like Gonzo, Imperial, Massive, etc. without more to back it up on their other beers...

Decent sized frothy white head of fine bubbles. Light carbonation. Nice and hoppy aroma. Loads of sweet malts, spruce and caramel. Color is a dark mahagony brown. Big malt presence again with a nice helping of hops to offset the swett malts. Caramel and more spruce. Not floral hops. Strickly resinous evergreen hops. Nice alcohol presence and warming. Finishes sweet with a little lingering bitterness. A very well balanced brew. Pretty damn good! Cheers Gordon!

Can, poured into a tulip. yea can, the new trend of craft brews? cheaper, ages better, keeps light out..... all plusses, the negative? association w/ macro-american breweries.... anyway, good beer.. pours a cloudy amber with a hoppy strong aroma. the beer is light and smooth with the hoppiness coming thru on the finish. after a few drinks it has a numbing effect on the palate... a good effect... this beer reminded me a lot of Arrogan Bastard but more palatable. it was very similiar on the finish... goood..... funny to say, but unique because of the can...

A deep amber color brew. This was a nice strong ale. Great flavor and a good use of high flavor hops. This was a very nice beer.

Cybercat (3256) - Georgia, USA - APR 22, 2007
Cloudy brown, it came to me with a thin head. Aroma was not particularly noticeable but was fairly hoppy. Taste is not complex and has a strong alcohol bite, making it taste almost like a liquor than a beer. Thick and smooth, it has some bitterness in the aftertaste but is still pleasant to drink. This is a beer to be sipped slowly and savored rather than chugged down.

Appearance: Pours a semi-cloudy brown-amber body with a rich, fluffy off-white head. Smell: Ahh, finally an assertive nose demanding of one’s attention! Pacific Northwest hops bring pine and, to a lesser extent, grapefruit to the table, while the malts deliver some caramel, biscuitiness, and maybe even some brown sugar, too. Taste: Begins with a sweet butterscotch maltiness that’s quickly succeeded by a myriad of fruit flavors including grapefruit, peaches, and blood oranges. Eventually, the pine and grassy hop flavors show up to welcome in the bitter, dry (but still somewhat sweet) finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Oily texture. Drinkability: Extraordinarily well-balanced, just as it’s secondary Dale’s Pale Ale is. A beer good enough to help you pull yourself up out of the muck and make your life something worth living. Thanks a million, Oskar Blues!
