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...

Very standard APA pour with abundant head, blame the pourer though. The smell is alert and spicy, pepper really comes to the fore.

Sips of Knot Stock are like snowflakes - no two are alike. Unfortunately, none of those snowflakes are very good. One sip presence all the promised cracked black pepper. Another is an odd lemony. Another is dawn soap (lemon flavor I surprise). Another is flat,dry, watery, bland, ewww. Really not enjoying this beer.

All in all, I found this to be a BIB (bad idea beer). Points for innovation, but not recommended.

Poured into a 16oz Pint Glass

Appearance - Dark Brown with alot of haze, you can tell this is a very unfiltered beer. Head pours a foamy 1 finger width, is slightly brown in color and has some excellent retention and good sticky lacing.

Smell - Black Pepper and Yeasts along with some malts; This is truly one of those beers that has a very unique smell to it and this is probably thanks to the black pepper thrown in and it blends in quite nicely, and the aroma has a faint sweetness to it.

Taste - Has a very powerful pepper and floral hops taste upfront. The peppers themselves also give it a sort of a salty characteristic, which makes the peppers feel a bit too excessive here. The malts are in here too, but they're easily overshadowed by the pepper flavors

Mouthfeel - It's quite heavy in body and it feels very "intense" which is probably, again, thanks to the black peppers and not the carbonation, which is otherwise fairly normal.

Overall - The bottle proclaims this to be a "Most Particular Ale", which is appropriate for Knot Stock. Had the peppers been more subdued, it would've had a much more balanced flavor. It's for someone whose up for something different, but anyone whose not into beer with a novelty appeal should look elsewhere.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass

Ap- a litter bit darker than an amber. Almost see through but not quite. 1/2 inch head has decent retention.

Ar- smells like a pale ale with black pepper crushed in it...weird I know. I do get a hint of some grapefruit though.

T- Not as peppery as I thought it would be. It actually finishes quite smooth. The pepper does linger in your mouth though long after the swallow. Seems salty too with a bit of citrusy pale ale flavor.

M- strong carbonation, light/medium bodied.

O- This beer is already giving me pepper burps. Not a bad beer, nor a great beer. This is an interesting take though. I give it props just for being unique.
