Poured from the bottle.

Cloudy and copper in colour. Slightly fruity nose with pepper and citrus-hops. The taste is on par with the smell; citrus-hops upfront with a mellow pepper flavour and a very clean finish.

Would I buy it again? Yes.

Knot Stock pours a mildly clear copper with a small but frothy head. When you take a deep whiff of this beer you almost think you might sneeze. The pepper is light and mixes well with sweet malts. You'd think that the pepper is going to hit you hard here up front but first you are greeted with a sweet almost candy like taste. This is when the pepper comes in and masks all the signs of the sweetness to give you a nice dry, spicy flavor… exactly what you'd find from well, pepper. It takes a few moments for the pepper to disappear from your mouth but in the end you're left thirsty again. The pepper dries out your mouth and the hop bite leaves you looking for another sip.

I love drinking this beer and I think it's a perfect beer to pair with dinner.

12oz into a pint

A - Pours a fairly opaque brown color. off white head formation, frothy that breaks down to a film. Lots of lacing.

S - Light amounts of black pepper and some nutty brown malts. Overall muted. As it warms, black pepper goes up significantly.

T - Starts off lightly malty, some caramel. Mid-stream the pepper comes in full speed, strong - white pepper which is slightly biting. Hopping is present but only servers to bring the beer into balance. Aftertaste holds onto, wait for it, more pepper.

M - Moderate body, moderate carbonation - a little bit sticky in the finish. Alcohol warmth is well hidden.

O/D - A quaffable beer from a ABV and filling point of view. outside of that, this beer is like other furthermore beers I've had - weird. I guess if you really like black pepper then you are good shape.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a curved pint glass from undated 12 ounce bottle. Color is very cloudy copper, almost tea brown with an extra thick, frothy kakhi head to it. Great head retention with healthy sticky lacing
Aroma mainly of malt, some sweetness, some mild spice and yeast.
Taste, as with the nose there is the malt. Then the hops, then a hint of the black pepper that builds. This became more pronounced as the glass rose more towards cellar temperature.
The mouthfeel is full bodied with active carbonation. Drinkability is great especially with grilled food, really interesting and something I'd buy again. This is my first go with this brewery and I will try some of the other offerings as well

[Best served in a Lager glass]

The pour was a cloudy medium brown with some orange highlights and a large (2-3 finger) frothy light tan head that was fully lasting and had excellent sticky sheets of lace.

The aroma was of a mild light bread malt, a light spruce hop and a dusty earthy yeast with notes of caramel and pepper.

The taste was a little mild with a malty caramel taste at first then progressed into this malty bitter peppery flavor with a mild spicy finish. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with the spicy pepper taste increasing as time went on.

Mouthfeel was light to medium in body with a nice dry texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall a well rounded brew with just the right amount of spice, which made this brew quite enjoyable...
