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.

The_Osprey (2781) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2014
Shared bottle at Draft House. Dark brick red, hazy, small white head. Aroma is syrupy sweet yet with a savoury bovril element. Body is medium, foamy, low carbonation. Taste is sweet toffee, resin, dry yeasty Belgian strong ale character, finishes spicy/peppery. Nice enough - not really my style.

Silvan7 (802) - Samarate, ITALY - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle@ Home from beerkings.it (online shop). Birra marrone, riflessi rubino velata, schiuma beige non troppo fine ma decisamente persistente. Aroma piuttosto intenso tostato, di cioccolato fondente, caffè in polvere, nocciole e noce moscata. Leggermente erbaceo da luppolo. Gusto abboccato, soprattutto all’ingresso dove predominano frutta secca (nocciole) speziatura (noce moscata) e poi un tostato piacevole, tra il cioccolato ed il caffè. Corposa, calda, rotonda e morbida al palato. ben equilibrata ed armonica.
