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.

12oz bottle, pours brown with a foamy, ivory head that dissipates quickly. Aromas are earthy, peppery, bread crust. Tastes are bready malt, earthy, black pepper, caramel, with a sharp piny finish, while being semi-bitter and semi-dry. Overall, not too impressed with this one. I don't think black pepper belongs in beer. For what it is, it's fine, but I definitely don't need to buy more of it.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Typical golden color with appetizing layer of foam.

Smell: Hints of pepper with citrus and pine.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Taste is similar to smell. Crisp mouthfeel with a lager-like cleanlines in the finish.

Overall: A pretty tasty ale that I would try again.

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.
