Oskar Blues G'Knight ....

Tonight's beer is G'Knight Imperial Red from Oskar Blues Brewery.  8.7% ABV is listed on the twelve ounce can.  The web site shows 60 IBUs.

G'Knight poured with a thin, beige head.  Beer color is a hazy, orange-ish amber.  The aroma is sweet, with candied & dark fruits, brown sugar and a little pine in the background.  Pine bitterness comes out a lot more in the taste.  Sweetness, but not as much as the aroma.  Dark fruit, malt.  A spicy, alcohol bite.  Slightly dry on the finish.  Leaves you with a complex, medium strength aftertaste - dry, spicy, bitter and sweet.  This is a 'lot of beer', and not one you would really expect to find in a can!
