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.

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. Pours dark brown with tan head. Very chocolaty aroma. Taste of rather sweet chocolate, hops and some red wine.

bhensonb (12310) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 16, 2010
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.

Davros (2260) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 16, 2010
Pours black with a large light tan head. Nose shows lots of nutty and softly roasted malt along with spicy, earthy and slightly resinous hops. Later on some chocolate and diacetyl enters. Very gentle, nothing harsh or aggressive, quite well done. Flavours show more roasted character but this quickly subsides into nutty malt and dark chocolate only to resurface in the finish as a pleasant roasty bitterness. Again, very well executed without twisting the style to much. Moderately low carbonation works well. Halfway between a stout and a porter really.

500 ml bottle at VilleValla Pub. Dark brown colour with big, foamy, brown head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malts and some american hops. Taste is bitter with notes of chocolate. Full body with an oily mouthfeel. Pleasant overall.

At the taphouse. Dark brown pour. Big head. Nice chocolate, nutty flavours going on. Notable hop balance. Really easy drinking. Become a lot more interesting once the temperature increased.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 pours a dark muddy brown. semi-thick head. feel is medium bodied. full flavor and aroma of bready malts and a generous portion of hops. flavor balanced between sweet malt and bitter hops. pretty good, but far from their best.

JorisPPattyn (8395) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2010
Medium darker beige head over brown beer with orange sides. Chocolate aroma, but with a creamy touch, nearing praliné, and again (as the Brun) something sourish-woody. Dry, chocolate, cacao, agian praliné, moccha. Sweetish-sourish in the finish, yet dry. Warming up, just a hint at alcohol/spirit develops. Medium bodied at best, sharpish finish, but slightly empty. Nice, if utterly unspectacular.
