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.

Reddish brown hazy beer with a beige head. Aroma has chocolaty, malty, sugary and cake kind of sweetness. Flavor is malty, chocolaty, cakey and little roasted. Finish is long and sweet with some bitterness and little sourness. Full and slightly stingy palate. A really enjoyable smooth beer.

0.5L bottle. Looks like grain coffee with small creamy hat. Fruity and a musty wood aroma. Little grainy, fruity, toffee, coffee with milk, very little rotten egg, mouldy flavors. Too light bitterness on the end. Drinkable, but price is too loud for this beer.

Pours brown with medium beige head. Aroma - chocolate, roasted malt and some sweetness of an alcohol. Tastes nice. Drinkable, but not the Nøgne Ø’s best beer in my opinion.

This beer has a slight sourness to balance the sweetness. Very good beer. Nice full bodied with sweetness and some nuttiness. Very good beer.

500ml bottle from Dutch’s. Probably at least a year old. Dark brown color. Good thin khaki head with great retention. Leaves good thicker ropes and reaches of lace. Medium to bigger body. Good smooth lighter carbonation. Easy drinking. Earthy hop, more bitter than the typical brown ale. Some nice chocolate malt. Moderate to bigger bitter, light sweet. Very tasty imperial brown. It’s held up amazingly well. Not anywhere as sweet as I thought it would be. Actually nicely on the bitter and hoppy end of the spectrum, where I like it...

Thanks, Terry, for bringing this to our New Years party. Opaque dark brown, sudsy head, low streaks of lace. Taste is burnt malt with coffee overtones. It moves cleanly through the palate to a sudden harsh bittering and a bite like strong alcohol in the finish. This is a sipping brew; I don’t think I could manage much of it in gulps.

Pours a dark orange beer with a good creamy tan’ish white head. Smells chocolate, vanilla. Tastes chocolate, vanilla, some coffee and fruity. Average carbo, medium body and a oily texture. I like it.
