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.

At the 2007 Big Beer, Belgians, & Barleywines Festival in Vail. This was in the limited release canned version at 9.3% ABV. Pours opaque copper amber with a rich thick fluff of hoppy smelling foam atop this dense beer. Strong orangey sweetness is blended with a bomb of citrus and grapefruit that grabs the tongue and hangs on.

12 oz can from beerandblues2 (thanks!). Says 8.7% abv. Pours an almost clear dark orange/brown with a large beige head. Nose is citrus and pine. Taste starts with some sweet caramel/crystal maltiness, then the citrusy piney hops lick in. Finish is a very nice bittersweet balance. Medium body. Almost syrupy mouthfeel. Some alcohol in the finish. Very good beer, and it comes in a can!

On tap at Capone’s in Norristown... Appears a semi-transparent dark amber with a light tan head that quickly fades out. Tons of scattered lacing is left around the glass. Smell is of pine, caramel, grassy, citrus, brown sugar...very sweet in the nose. Taste is of the mentioned aromas with a bit of a raisin flavor going on in there as well. Again, it’s very sweet, even bordering cloying with the pine and brown sugar. Not too bad but not knocking my socks off either. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, seemingly under-attenuated, fizzy, and sweet. I was expecting a little more judging from some of the ratings but now that I look at the overall average...I guess my opinion isn’t too far off base.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 25, 2007
Coppery red clear body, Nice fluffy sticky tan head. Rich flowery hop aroma. Citrus and dry caramel grains. Sweet syrupy aroma. Flavor is pretty good, but not unique (not that that is bad in this case). Kind of a stale sweet malt covering up a lot of juicy hops. A little unique in that respect, and definitely drinkable.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2007
Clear amber with a huge, dense, off white head. Nose is venomous, floral, resinous, and sweet. All hops and just a hint of grain in the nose. Flavor shows a ton more malt than anticipated. Nearly balanced. Hops are the same plus citrus rind with some graham cracker, cookie, and light caramel malt. Very drinkable. Medium/full body, balanced. If it’s warm next weekend, I’ll be taking a 4 pack to the beach. Very solid.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - FEB 25, 2007
Darker amber with a large pillowy head, good lacing and retention. Aroma was initially pine, grapefruit, more fruits, caramel, and later showed light vanilla. Flavor brings this, light alcohol as well. Very drinkable and easily the best beer in a can I have ever had.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2007
Amber with nice full head. Aroma is hops galore with pine domination. Flavours is hoppy with the pine and spruce and a touch of citrus. Nice balance of malty bread. Tasty and a great can of beer.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2007 Can. Clear orange-copper with a large head. Good lacing. Aroma of pine resin, citrus rinds, and a fair amount of caramel malt. Incredible malt backbone in the taste. Sticky texture. Spicy and bitter finish. Excellent.
