COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There is a long story to this malty ale. It was first brewed in the spring 2006 in Nørrebro Bryghus in Copenhagen, Denmark, as a joint brew between Nøgne Ø and Nørrebro. Nørrebro calls their version “Double Knot Brown”. It is the perfect thing to drink with almost any cheese.

Recommended serving temperature 12°C/50°F. Ingredients: Maris Otter, wheat, brown, amber, Munich and caramel malt; Columbus, Chinook and E K Golding hops; English ale yeast, and our local Grimstad water.

19°P.

This is really close to perfect. Everything is great: body, bitterness, aroma, taste, head, looks. Fantastic!

Brązowe jak sama nazwa wskazuje, z piękną pianą która ładnie krążkuje na szkle. W aromacie, kawa, ciasteczka, palone słody, trochę karmelowe. Alkohol dobrze zamaskowany, słodowe, czekoladowe, palone, z odrobiną owoców. Wysycenie średnie w stronę wysokiego, z absolutnym brakiem goryczki.

50cl bottle shared. Pours dark brown with a HUGE beige head that grows in the glass for a while before slowly starting to disappear. Smells of biscuits, roasted malts, light coffee, some spices. Taste starts sweet with lots of biscuits and coffee. Very good aftertaste with burnt sugar and bitter ground coffee notes. Oily texture, low carbonation. Excellent.

Bottle. Dark brown, really thick head, that creates nice lace on a glass, but not clear. Delicate aroma mainly of nuts, dark bread and chocolate. Taste is biiter-sweet well balanced and alcohol is perfectly covered. It’s quite smooth for it’s ABV :) Nice job!

Marron très foncé avec une petite mousse marron. L’arôme de la mélasse, sucre brun et un peu d’houblon et alcool. Le goût est similar avec une finition assez amer dans la finale.

Bottiglia 50 cl bevuta a casa. Marrone scuro con bella schiuma molto persistente. Malti torrefatti ed una punta di nocciola, si sente anche l'alcol. Corpo medio con carbonazione fine. Non il mio genere preferito ma comunque buona! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

Pours a very cloudy dark brown with lots if sediment. Not much aroma but lots of dark malt, coffee and dmoke flavors. A very good brown ale overall.
