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.

From the can, an so far the best beer from a can i’ve had. Pours cloudy mahogany, lots of floaties (age a can?), soft khaki head with lots of lacing. Very rich hop aroma, still sweet tough. Good malty IIPA or strong ale or whateva, with enough sweetness to not make it a palate scraper. Rich caramel malt flavor, depth that gives a milk chocolate flavor to it. Citrusy hops, very floral.

can poured into a snifter. my first craft beer from a can... it was quite enjoyable. Oskar Blues makes some damn good beer. I would classify this more like a Barley Wine than an American Strong Ale... it had the aromas and palate of an american barley wine. pours a deep red with a solid white head. hoppy aroma and thick and chewy on the palate. average carbonation and a nice strong hoppy finish. quite excellent beer... glad I have 3 more in the cellar.

pkbites (867) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2007
Pours a dark, Dark, DARK red (yes, it’s a red hue) with a creamy beige head. Smells like fresh churned butter. Not as bitter as I expected. Flowery hops and malty fluff. Expensive as all hell: $12-15 for a 4 pack! Jebus Khrist! Luckily the Three Cellars store on 27th street in Franklin, WI. sells single cans of this for $4 each. That’s fair enough for a taste of this.

Can into St. Bernardus glass; purchased at Greens on Ponce, Atlanta. Pours dark and without much carbonation (have to slosh it a little to get a creamy ecru head, which subsides to leave a ring of nice tight lacing). Smells of cracker and buttery hops all over the place. Feels and tastes kind of like Double Bastard with a hard clean line and aggressive bittering hops, but the hops are more flowery in the finish here. Still, same with the Bastard beers, I feel that this is unintegrated and brash overall. The sudsy, cracker malts just kind of sit there, and the hops are bitterness and a little metal over the top of it. Alcohol is well integrated though, and it tastes good. Solid, not fantastic.

Aroma is of high-alpha hops, resiny with some citrus, and earth. pours dark amber with good head and is transparent. flavor is full or rustic earthy hops, with some grapefruit cutting in there. Not a lot of malt flavor, definitely just for balancing the bitterness. medium palate. good.

RSRIZZO (1949) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2007
Had this beer at the All Colorado Beer Fest on 11/10/2007. Aroma is wonderful, its full of fresh hops and a nice malt tone. Color is a deep brown with good carbonation and a some what thick tight head. Taste is rich and hoppy. Starting with a full body it goes down with a rich feel. Finish comes in with a sweet roasted malt flavor that is backed by a full hop flavor and mellow bitterness. This is one of the tastiest and well balanced beers I have had.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 11, 2007
12 oz. can. Poured a perfect clear copper color into the tulip. An inch of head stuck around for awhile, leaving speckled lace on the sides of the glass. The scnet was piney hops, honey and carmel. Nice mix of hops and malt, with the piney, grassy hops slightly prevelant. A sticky mouthfeel and good mix of sweetness and bitterness on the palate. Excellent strong ale, a new favorite.

Pours out a nice coppery brown color with a small beige head. Aroma is hoppy, sweet, and maybe a bit grassy. Flavor had a nice hop bite to it with a smooth resin and sweet finish to it. I like this one. Nice beer!

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2009 GABF 2006-Wonderful columbus aroma. Lovely. Taste is pure columbus goodness back by a caramelly, honeyish malt backing. Very tasty. Contained bitterness. Would make a dangerous session beer.

Hazy, dark orange/brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma is toasty malt, caramel, nutty, with citrus, floral, and resiny hops. Taste is malty and sweet, up front, with a nice amount of resinous, citrus and, to a lesser extent, piney hops in the finish. Moderate bitterness, a balanced IIPA? Very drinkable. Score will stay the same.
