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.

12 oz can. A deep copper pour with a medium tan head. A strong hops aroma greets you right away. A flavor that is heavy malt followed by a very nice warmth. A bitter that isn’t as harsh as the aroma would indicate. A palate that is full and smooth with very nice middle of the road carbonation that a beer this big needs to be successful in my opionion. Not the hop monster that I expected from the nose but a very good beer.

Tasty, thick, hoppy, malty concoction which reminds me of Arrogant Bastard a bit. Very nice stuff.

I still can’t believe I just poured this from a can. Everything I love about an ASA - loads of hops, coming through here with some bitterness and some serious pine flavors, balanced out by a solid malt backbone, here with some subtle chocolate and caramel sweetness. We need more canned beer that tastes so great.

anders37 (23044) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2007
Can. Pours a clear amber color with s longlasting off-white head. Maly hoppy piney citrus aroma. Sweetish malty hoppy piney flavor with some hints of grapefruit. Long malty finish with some weak chocolate hints and it has a long bitter aftertaste.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - JUL 30, 2007
From the can. Aroma is malty and sweet with a lot of citrus hop character. Appearance is a cloudy copper. Flavor is an even malt/hop balance followed by a ton of earthy hops; grassy and musty. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, round, with low carb texture. Overall, it’s just way too earthy and doesn’t have nearly a wide enough range of hop flavors. Maybe I’m sensitive to something in it, as most of my friends love this too, but I just don’t get this beer as everyone else does, and I love everything else from the brewery.

omhper (23513) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2007
Canned at The Rover, Göteborg. Clear orange-brown, small head. Striking lychee aroma. Sweet and rounded with medium body. Bready and lightly fruity, very hoppy. Lingering very bitter finish where some light saccharine disturbs a little. Best beer out of a can?

Beer can sampled with stegosaurus. Pours a dark copper color with a white head. Aroma of citrus, piney hops, and caramel malts. Flavor follows the aroma and is well balanced with a nice dry finish. Best beer out of a can i ever had.

Can. Cascade aroma, grapefruit with light caramel. Orange-amber pour with a large creamy/rocky/dense/spoonable/smooth cream-colored head. As for taste, medially bitter and mild with measured hoppiness and a little caramel grit. The Cascades are really coming through here in a different way - very expressive. Touch of orange and yeast, touch of Stone AB hoppiness. Grapefruit and faint pine sap. Medium-full body with a slick, sticky feel and a dry, sticky, hoppy aftertaste. Despite the heft from the alcohol, and though it only sets in late, this can be drunk rapidly and in great quantity, or sipped and savored. I have been very impressed by OB’s lineup - everything offering is solid. Bravo!
