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.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Bottle:   Deep brown, deep deep reddish hue, huge frothy light beige head, nice lacing.   Malty nose, pale biscuit, a little barnish and musty.   Perhaps even a bit earthy.   Nice smooth malt background is the first thing I notice.   Pale toasty malts, smidgen of earth and mustiness.   Not as meaty and mealy as American Examples, and less hoppy, none of which works.   This one works.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   It tiz fairly smooth.   Lingering toasted maltiness.   Pretty straight forward, low on hops, big on malts, smooth, without being astringent or overly hoppy.   I say do away with Brown Ale and only do Imperial Brown Ale.   I don’t know if those guys from Nogne Ø could do wrong.

A really nice beer to drink especially after dinner instead of desert. This is probably my favourite so far of the ones I have tried from Nøgne Ø....but I look forward to try more!!

SirLimpsalot (2778) - SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2010
Doftmässig är den inte så stor, men smaken är fylld med härliga nötter, rostat kaffe, frukt och en svag sötma. Vätskan är fyllig utan att bli för oljig. Skummet är gräddigt och fint. En absolut stabil öl från Nøgne.

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 25, 2010
From notes. Tasted from bottle at Lush Roscoe. Pours clear deep amber with a thick tan head that displays excellent retention. The nose is roasted malt with a hint of brown sugar sweetness. The flavor is somewhat sweet with roasted malt, brown sugar, dark chocolate, and coffee. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long roasted finish.

Bottle from Oak Tree. Pours dark brown with a foamy 3 finger tan head. Dark fruit aromas. Fresh dark fruit. Plummy? Full bodied with foamy carbonation. Flavor is dark brown malt, with some fresh dark fruit, and a little coffee. It’s not sweet, and there’s a fair amount of hop bitter. A very good beer.
