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.

Bottled. Warming alcohol, roasted malt, espresso apply for aroma and taste. Color is dark brown, head vanished quickly but left a thin texture. Overall not so my beer style, but drinkable.

Mørk brun farge med lys beige skum. Lukter sjokolade, kaffe og malt. Sjokolade og kaffe kommer mere fram i smaken. God bitter ettersmak.

BeerBaboon (1554) - FINLAND - APR 12, 2014
Punertava, tumman ruskea ja muodostaa vaalean beigen vaahdon. Tuoksu on paahtunut, leipäinen, pähkinäinen, hieman suklainen ja hieman hedelmäinen. Maku on paahtunut, rusinainen, sitrushedelmäinen, katkera ja lakritsinen.

djoeye (1380) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2014
Brown 0,5L btl 7,5% pours a tiny head on the dark brown body, some lacings. Scents of chocolate malts, caramel malts, fruity sweet scents overall. Very smooth gentle creamy chocolate taste, creamy malts. Good body. Smooth carbonation. Fine on palate. Finishes slightly flourish, the chocolate malts still dominate this beer, lingering with fruity notes, Overall a decent beer for afterdinners, cozy times and so on. #925B TAP180213 BBF18feb17 b@vinmonopolet, tasted@home.

ryecatcher (766) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep mahogany, big off-white head with excellent retention and lacing. Nose is a whole lotta malt, some caramel, faint smokiness. Mouth is medium bodied, subtly semisweet, malt forward, plenty of caramel, dates, some roast, toasted pumpernickel, molasses, faint smoky flavor like in the nose. ABV is nicely hidden, and this is a pretty straightforward brew. Skål!

Bottle 2013 from The Fox, Shipley - opaque dark brown, slim off-white head. Aroma of roast malts, caramel, dark fruits, burnt sugar. Repeated in the taste. Exceptionally nice - full bodied, great hops. Nice late bitterness. Superior beer.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein dunkel rötlichbraunes Bier mit schöner großen Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht röstmalzig, exotisch fruchtig, hopfig. Geschmack sehr röstmalzig fruchtig, dunkle Früchte, fruchtige Bitterkeit.

Borresteijn (4620) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2014
50cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Brown colour, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, leaves, juniper, alcohol, some grapefruit, weird. Flavour is medium-sweet, caramel/toffee without the sweetness, a little salty, leafy hops, alcohol, something else I can’t put my finger on, a little herbal. Bitter finish. Medium-bodied, a little sticky. Not convinced.

mikeyo1 (173) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle @ home. Aged 2,5 years. brown reddish color with a big beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is initially intense milk chocolate from the foam. Aroma is sweet and quite vinous with milk chocolate, raisins, dates, hazelnut, vanilla, coffe and light roast notes. some red berries and some well integrated alcahol. Taste has more booze, a bit sticking. Flavor is sweet with dark chocolate, coffee, red berries, nuts, earthiness and some burnt roastiness. Finishes drier and somewhat tart. Mid-high body and high soft carbonation.
