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.

yespr (31503) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2007
12 fl oz can. Pours clear and amber with a 2 finger thick light orange head. Dry, woody, grapefruity and peachy aroma. Flavour holds a solid sweet malt base with a nice fruityness on top. In the finish a nice liqourice note appears. Simple and very flavourful, great stuff.

oh6gdx (20693) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2007
Canned (thanks heemer77!). Dark coppery colour with huge offwhite creamy head, which leaves a lot of lacing behind. Aroma is big time hops (grass, hay as well as freshly cut wood). Flavour is very much the same, strong hops along with a slight creamy touch and some slight stinging alcohol in the finish.

omhper (19705) - 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?

madmitch76 (15420) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2010
24th September 2008. Hazy brown beer. Lovely hop profile - robust aromatic hop delivering loads of grapefruit but with no acidity or bitterness. This is laid on a solid foundation of malt. Very drinkable indeed!

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2010 2009-10-18, draught at Pony Bar, New York, 7-4-7-5-15=38
Amber color. The body is less strong than you expect; it has an interesting citrusy and resiny hop aroma, toffee flavor, dry resiny hop final. Good.

2007-09-10, can, 7-5-8-5-15=40
Beautiful, bright dark amber color; big head. Powerful hoppy aroma, resiny, but also a bit fruity and cheesy. Good body strength, sweet malt and sweet caramel flavor, well balanced by the powerful hopping; the final is very strong, long, with very good resin footprint. Bold and straightforward, maybe lacking some complexity, but very pleasant.
