Starting a new tab, we are going to get into another brew from Furthermore Brewery and the beer is called Knot Stock. Just what I said in yesterday beer blog. I could not find any history on this brewery. Let us get into the beer.
It has a slightly cloudy amber color with a white constant head. The smell is black peppercorn. The taste is a sweet malty pepper with black peppercorn aftertaste. To me, it is not drinkable because of the pepper in the beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Beer brewed with black pepper.
Here is a description from their website (www.furthermorebeer.com):
Black, cracked, stuffed in a sack, boiled and cold-infused. The real treat of our A.P.A. is the tangle of flavors that fresh cracked pepper and Northern Brewer Hops create. At 65 IBUs (bitterness units) there’s plenty of zing for the Hop Heads or Bitter Bettys, but not so much to overpower the tingle of the black pepper as it slowly kicks in. Likewise, the 15° Plato malt bill features a healthy dose of caramel malt meant to soften (but not stifle) the play of pepper and hops on the palate.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Closing out the tab, this beer is worth it. It is has a ton of flavors and I love the peppercorn that is in the beer. The beer is full body and comes with a ton of flavors. The black pepper is not overpowering to the rest of the beer. It has a nice balance of the pepper and the hops that are being used in this beer. This beer is worth the price. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
