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.

Ah, Gordon. A winter drink for hop heads. Pours dark red amber from the can, good lacing. Smell is grapefruit, pine, dank hops. Taste is sweet, resiny caramel, nicely hopped with a superb thick chewy mouthfeel. The sweetness plus the hops plus the booze soothes the soul--a good one to put you to sleep.

Aka Gordon! From 16oz can to glass. Hazy reddish amber with some muddy tan. Manilla tan head that lasts. Hoppy aroma of citrus, lemon, and grass. Malt notes include some red fruit. Well balanced with sweet toasted red malts, dry citrus grass hops and light fruity yeast to round it out. Thick chewy and thick mouth feel. Its a classic. Long live Gordon!

Draught at Brewdog Edinburgh.
Clear amber-reddish appearance with a medium off white-tan head. Malty aroma with some caramel and fruity hops-yeasts. Nice body with a bit of caramel, after a while the toasted nuts and some caramel arrives. Just a bit of hops in the finish.

Nocturne (1046) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2015
Tap at BrewDog Liverpool. Hazy amber shade with lacing. Fluffy white cap. Heavy on caramel with pine also in the aroma. Tastes of strawberry jam, other red fruits and a faint floral edge. Much softer and fruitier than I expected, with an almost chewy texture. Pretty solid but a heftier malt backbone might have kicked it up a notch.

It pours a cloudy brown with a full head. There are aromas of dried fruit, malt caramel. It has a rich feel to it with flavors of dried fruit, caramel, citrus, and a moderate bitter finish. There is also a considerate amount of lacing that it produces.

Barreras (1168) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Pours an amber color with a minimal pine and citrus aroma. Taste is slightly bitter with a small caramel bitterness in the aftertaste. A decent beer for the style, a little hoppier than expected.
