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.

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 (1822) - 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...

Can from Bottledog. Pours a clear amber with a medium brownish white head. Nose is all the best of american hops with lots of pine and citrus. Taste follows suit with a caramel body and hints of berries. Will visit Colorado some day because of this.

Tjusigt rödbrun och en aning grumlig. Fyllig och intensiv smak. Viss fruktighet och beska. Mycket drickbar.

Hockert (82) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2014
From can at home. Pours dark caramel reddish with a offwhite head. Smells of caramel, citrus and hay. Tastes very caramel malty, medium to high bitterness. Tastes some kind of sweet, but not too much. Well balanced!
