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.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Sampled at BDR’s tasting and shared by akevitt. Pours a semi-clear dark brown brew with a good sized beige head that has some nice retention and spotty lacing. Aroma of roasted dark malts, some chocolate, licorice, and a touch of dark pitted fruit and citrus zest. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonated with flavors of roasted dark malts, dark pitted fruits, and a touch of dried yeast. Finish is semi-sweet with a mild chocolate and roasted dark malt after taste.

Lubiere (9731) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2008
A dark clear brown ale with a thick moka head, well carbonated. Interesting aroma of chocolate and leather, very animal. In mouth, a wallop of a brown ale, with bitter chocolate, coffee, caramel malts, grapefruits, licorice, with a rich oily mouth feel. Like eating 90% cooking chocolate.

Bananamaniac (35) - Kristinehamn, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2008
50 cl bottle. Ordered a box about 12 bottles of this wonderful beer, shared with a good friend and my father. This beer has a wonderful mouth-feel and a aroma from hell. No kidding here! This is one of the best beers you can enjoy from the nordic countries. Well then, to the taste, very much butterscotch and fudge in the taste with a slightly bitter nose. Excellent!
