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.

Pour is rusty orange with lasting thick beige head. Aroma is punchy. Buckets of pine and caramel malt. Hops are oppressed but can be found if you delve. Peach, some apricot and orange. Thick, sticky mouth-feel; indicative of a lot of OB beers. Lots of pine, a hint of grapefruit initially. Fairly sweet actually. Malt consumes quickly. Toffee, burnt sugar and some cracker flavors. Medicinal honey, maybe jam on the back palate. Piney bitterness. Very nice but a little one-paced.

Can at the Rake. Aroma is strawberry jam, bit spiky. Fill bodied but jammy sweetness was good. Light spikiness. Good stuff. JAM TARTS!

sudomorph (600) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
On tap at the Kalamazoo Beer Exchange. Pours a clear, deep amber with a creamy head. That laces. Aroma has slight tropical hops and not a lot else. Taste is a medium bitter. Can’t really get a lot off of it. Medium body and carbonation. A bit of a strong taste and mild alcohol warmth.

Naturen strävar efter balans. Näringskedjor och ekosystem ser till att hålla djur- och växtriken i schack i ett ständigt givande och tagande. Så fungerar också de bästa ölen: som ett mikrokosmos där naturlagarna samarbetar för att skapa den bästa av världar. Oskar Blues G’Knight Imperial Red är så harmonisk i sin smakflora att man bara är en kulspetspenna från att skriva under på teorin om intelligent design.

PhillyBeer2112 (2525) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Not bad but not quite what I was looking for after a nice plate of rice and black beans, carne asada, plantains, etc. Pretty much your stereotypical malt heavy double IPA (or strong ale whatever). Big doughy chewy caramel malts, seasoned heavily with resiny hops that hint at grapefruit in the nose. Long piney grapefruit rind finish, almost tannic. Heavy body.

Amber with lasting thick white head. Hoppy, caramel, dry hoppy, citrus, biscuit malt aroma. Medium-high mouth feel with high warmth. Hoppy with caramel, toffee, grainy, malt flavors. Crisp and dry.

Beese (1783) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2014
Draught at BrewDog, Shepherd’s Bush on 23 July. Poured a hazy deep amber, with a dense off white head and good lacing. Aroma was herbal, with caramel and rich fruits. Aniseed in the flavour, with rich toffee and some fruity hops. Finish was biscuit, burnt sugar and some roasted character.

16oz can. Copper, cloudy. Aroma of caramel malts, floral hops. Flavor is sweet hoppy resin, big caramel malt in the middle, and a full bodied, sticky palate. A fantastic ASA. RIP Gordon Knight...
