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.

Lilja (1783) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2014
En flaska lagrad fyra år. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, brunt socker, choklad med aningar av nötter och rostade toner. Frisk humle, välbalanserad med jämna smaker som ligger länge i gommen. En riktigt fin imperial ale.

Bue en bouteille de 50cl, couleur marron foncée, peu de mousse, et effervescence moyenne, une bière très caramel en début de bouche et une continuité sur le café et fin de bouche chocolat vraiment excellente.

Pours deep brown with tan head. Aroma is loads of sweet toffee, roasted malt and some sweet chocolate tones. Round and sweet palate. Aftertaste is more toffee, sweet, caramel and a nice noble hop bite. Overall: What a beer! Well made!

Bouteille 50cl, batch# 1111, BB 21/01/2017, bottled 21/01/2014. Ambrée claire, col épais blanc cassé. Arôme est malté, grillé, léger fruité noir rappelant les figues et raisins secs. Léger bouquet houblonné arrive en rétro-nasal. Palais est agréable pour ne pas dire délicieux, de belles notes de malts nottament grillé donne une belle touche de torréfié. Houblonné plus subtil apparait en fin de bouche ajoutant ainsi une brève amertume. Note une pointe de citronné, léger herbacé, et en se réchauffante la bière gagne sur ce côté fruité. Je note aussi une pointe de douceur caramélisée qui reste intense dans la bière et même un rappel de gingerbread.

bottle from liquorland Tga. An unexpected find. Brewed 08/2011 & Best Before 2016. Believable - was tasting good 3 years in. Ale is dark brown, nearly porter colour. Good fluffy head. A little sediment. Looking and smelling intriguing though. Good hops make taste reasonably lively, despite low carbonation. nice soft malt flavors run though also - nutty & caramel being most evident. Looking forward to more Ol from Norge!

matis (168) - Warsaw, POLAND - AUG 24, 2014
Hoppy nose with lot of dark malts notes. Chocolate, nuts, cocoa and caramel. In taste there’s nice tuned cooperation of notes recognizable usually in IPA’s and Stout’s: roasted black malts and medium, well fitted bitter finish.Creamy and smooth body - like a liquid desert!

ramboraffe (730) - SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2014
500 ml bottle. Clear dark brown with tanned head. Smell is malty and burned sugar with some hops. Taste is full bodied roasted malt with coffee and biscuits with a finishing dry hoppiness. Medium bitterness and medium carbonation.

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!
