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.

tgncc (3094) - Bellmore, New York, USA - AUG 7, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2011 The aroma is nutty, chocolatey, earthy. The appearance is deep brown, off-white head. The flavor is brown sugar, nuts, big chocolate. Medium in body. The finish is sweet, brown sugar, leading to enduring piney hops. Very solid Brown Ale. Not worth the $14/32 oz growler I paid for this, but solid.

CanIHave4Beers (3999) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Pours a deep brown color with a small well retained head and some lace. The aroma is nutty with some earthy and chocolaty notes some mild pear and alcohol show through as well. The flavor is really fairly bitter but also nutty with some woodiness and a good dosage of earthy hops. The beer is decidedly not sweet but allows some room for a balance of sweet nuttiness. Pretty tasty stuff.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JUL 9, 2011
Bottle. A hazy dark brown beer, with a small, frothy, fully lasting beige head. The aroma is moderately malty and lightly hoppy, with notes of caramel, chocolate, toasted/roasted nuts, flowers, dark fruits, with a touch of brown sugar. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, average/lively carbonation, long finish with medium bitterness and a light alcoholic touch. Very good, malty, balanced beer, with good clean bitterness. Excellent, genuine and complex aroma, with more than decent mouthfeel. High quality as normal from Nogne O.

lusikka (7689) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 27, 2011
500 ml bottle @ Bishops Arms, Bellmansgatan, Stockholm. Batch #237, brygget 12.03.2006, BBE 12.03.2011. Rated @ 23.5.2011.
Pours a dark reddish brown colour with a light brown head on the edges. Aroma of dried fruits, syrup and some lovely citrus. Flavour of toasted malts, syrup, dried fruits, mild chocolate, nuts and ripe raisins. Medium/full bodied with a slick mouthfeel and a fruity, raisiny finish. This has aged very well and it’s just awesome. I’m glad that I still managed to found a such aged bottle.
