Beer review from BA Mag Sep 2007.

Modern American brewers will always go the distance to please, wow or simply pique interest. Sometimes unconventional ingredients come into play rather than just a different name. Knot Stock is a Pale Ale brewed with an addition of black pepper, so there we are.

Head lays a bit thin but with enough retention and stickage to get by. Deep rusty-hued reddish color with a bright clarity. Orange-lemony hops meld well with the hint of black pepper and the toasted bready tone in the aroma. Sturdy moderate body with a decent crispness that pulls the flavors in quickly. Bready maltiness sets in with an enticing warmth from the spicy black pepper. This black pepper flavor grows quicker with each sip; the first few find it sitting in the back, but after a few more it pushes right to the front--leaving the taste buds to try and recover from each wave.

While this is not your Joe six-pack craft beer of the day, it's a damn impressive and interesting brew. We are now imagining a thick cut of pan-seared prime rib to enjoy along with a bottle of this beer, with plenty more fresh-cracked black pepper, of course. Cheers to the brewers to have the courage to go this far and for making such a flavorful beer!

3.38/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Medium-dark amber. Clear. Short off-white head with good retention.

Smell - Mostly sweet light malts. Bready with a little caramel. Just a little citrus.

Taste - Flavor is a little more roasted than the aroma suggests. Light toast and caramel. Hoppier and grassier than I was expecting from the aroma. A little spiciness and a little heat in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Light-medium. Dry.

Overall - I like it fine, but this beer isn't as distinctive as I thought it would be. An entirely decent APA.

2.74/5  rDev -21.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.75

A: Dark red, almost amber lager-like. Decent head and lacing.

S: The pepper is apparent even on the nose, lending it a woodsy aroma that leads you to expect it to be rather malty.

T: Very immediate, almost smoky dryness from the pepper. Some hoppiness on the back end, but it's drowned out by the pepper.

M: Bland and boring.

O: Black pepper in beer is an interesting experiment, but ultimately the taste is too overwhelming for me. Thanks but no thanks, Furthermore.

Try it again? 2 - Probably not.
