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.

12oz can from MrBendo. Aroma: Light grainy maltiness with a touch of sweet caramel. A strong dose of hops with a big note of citrus and apricot and pine. Appearance: Dark reddish amber in color and slightly hazed. Off-white head was full and creamy with great retention. Great lacing. Flavor: Sweet grainy malt with a strong caramel character. Hops come in strong with lots of citrus, apricot, and pineapple. Some pine and grass mixed in there, as well. Not as bitter as I was expecting. Some sweetness lingers past the finish. Palate: Medium-full bodied. Medium carbonation. Light alcohol warming in back of mouth. Overall: This was pretty good, but a little too sweet.

Huge hop aroma (more classic hops than citric). In the mouth the intense bitterness is balanced by a big caramel sweetness. The combinantion gives a viscous, herbaceous feeling. Quite interesting

Draft @ Friscos Grille in Columbia, MD. This is a DAMN GOOD BEER! Pours clear caramel / bourbon with small/med head. Like other raters I found it to be well balanced. A great meld of big malt and ton-o-hops. Reminded me of a DFH 90min with not quite as much the malty sweetness to it. I love this beer!

Can. Very nice hop aroma of grapefruit, floral, and pine; some malt also. The flavor is well-balanced between caramel malt and citrus / floral hops. An excellent beer.

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.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - MAY 3, 2007
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!
