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.

bonbright7 (181) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - DEC 11, 2009
The spicy aroma of this IPA was very present as my glass was seemingly covered with this big, yet clean, flavored ale. As I have been favoring double ipa-s recently, this dark amber ale was very refreshing and a welcome change in my otherwise uneventful day. The elements of caramel style malts and the sparkling hops made this very easy to drink.

Freaky_tiki (1117) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2017
Can from LCBO. This 4-pack winked at me the last time I was at the LCBO. It was a day or two after New Years & I was feeling less than fresh & the thought of a IIPA/strong ale (this beer could & should be classified as either) 4-pack seemed daunting. Along comes a crappy week at the education factory & (more importantly) payday & this beauty is in my fridge. Nice clash of rich malt & generous dry hops. Cut some of the sugars & this would probably punch its way into a 4.0+ rating.

Spab (3560) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2017
355 ml can from LCBO. Pours a clear mahogany colour with moderate-sized cream-coloured head. Aroma is rich toffee, bread, citric hops and dried fruit. Flavour is big toffee, gently toasty bread, dark dried fruit and some citrusy and slightly piney hops. Average-full body. Nice.

It pours amber with copper highlights; the head is off white and foamy. The aroma has notes of: toffee, grapefruit zest, freshly cut grass, mangos, and strawberry jam. The taste is medium bitter. The palate is medium-heavy bodied with medium carbonation, and has a long finish. Overall, it has a very unique profile.

Satyroneto (340) - BRAZIL - JAN 6, 2017
Cor âmbar com tonalidade rubi, turva com algum brilho e um pouco de perlage; espuma marfim de tonalidade amarelada formando bela cascata quando vertida; alta formação e média/alta persistência com lacing regular. Aroma com perfeito equilíbrio da base maltada de caramelo (um pouco açucarado mas agradável) e muito lúpulo cítrico (muita toranja e leves abacaxi e manga), além de leve álcool lembrando madeira. Sabor inicial de caramelo evoluindo para meio alcoólico e cítrico (vide aroma), aumentando de intensidade até o final; retrogosto alcoólico, amargo e um pouco amadeirado. Corpo sedoso com espuma cremosa na boca nos primeiros goles e baixa carbonatação. Um show de equilíbrio e alta drinkabilty, ainda mais para uma cerveja com 8,7% ABV.

Tognetta (803) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - JAN 5, 2017
Âmbar avermelhado de leve turbidez, espuma bege avermelhado de media formação e persistência. Aroma mistura caramelo com uva vermelha, adocicado, cereja. Paladar de médio dulçor e leve amargor lupulado. Corpo e carbonatação médios. Final de média/longa persistência tendendo a fruta vermelha e suco de lúpulo. Muito boa.

Alpha10 (678) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2016
2016/12/09 - Pours a clear, deep amber colour with a thick, frothy, cream coloured head that slowly reduces and leaves moderate, sticky lacing. Aroma is caramel, sweet bread, brown sugar, earthy notes, resin, citrus (grapefruit, orange) and a hint of pineapple. Taste is caramel, orange, sweet bread resin, more earthy hops and a hint of booze. Moderately bitter and moderate to high sweetness. Mouthfeel is full and sticky with smooth carbonation and a dry, bittersweet finish. Incredibly smooth and well balanced for a beer of this ABV.

Gluepot (528) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2016
A rich reddy amber body with a dense beige head. The nose is an engaging mix of big, fresh resinous hops, brown sugar and malt. A really tasty malt forward imperial ipa. Rich caramel, chewy biscuit malt and cereal form the backbone. Grapefruit, orange and pine resin lead an impressive hop profile. Coats the mouth with sweetness. A dense, slick body.

Lacho (85) - USA - DEC 27, 2016
I am surprised I have not reviewed this beer before. Beautiful pour, ruby red with a tan colored abundant foamy head. Smells resiny, herbal and like a wet first in spring. First taste is amazing, it fills the mouth very well balanced, even though alcohol is not evidently present. Great beer.

venom666 (948) - Elche, Alicante, SPAIN - DEC 27, 2016
Pours a slightly hazy, almost clean amber color with medium beige head. Aroma has pine, citrus and bread, with a fair amount of caramel and resin. Taste follows the nose, citrus hops, pine drops, caramel/toffee, bread, tropical fruits and resin. Moderate bitter aftertaste.

AleRider78 (830) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2016
355ml can from LCBO. Pours an insane amount of foamy, bubbly beige head and has a fairly clear amber coppery appearance. Nice thick dirty lacing. Aromas of toasty malts, hints of caramel as well as resin and earthy hops. Flavours are sweet and malty, some caramel also makes a strong appearance. Some earthy hop notes. Has a little bit of a rusty metallic like finish, does not detract or lessen from main flavour notes. Good retention. Medium bodied mouthfeel.
