Has anyone on list been game to try the New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops in a brew?

I've been given 100gms to try but the info on the NZ hop site is less than encouraging :(

The Alpha is 13.4%

I've used them in a few brews. In fact I have a heap of them that is going to take me a while to get through.
I used them in a stout that came out awesome.
Used them in my Imperial Pilsner at the weekend too.
Have used them in other brews but can't recall off the top of my head.
I've really been meaning to use them in an APA as the bittering addition.

I've also tried a number of Nelson beers made with them (Harringtons Lord of the Rings Stout), and Macs AroMac.
They are also used in the Speights Pilsner

Beers,
Doc

Thanks Doc,

By the aroma of them I figured .... dark beer.

Maybe a stout with munich instead of pale and see how it goes.
