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.

Superbe couleur marron foncée, fine pellicule de mousse beige. Nez automnal de fruits secs : noix, noisettes, marrons, caramel, bois. Bouche maltée, saveur de fruits secs (les mêmes), café, biscuit. Les houblons sont discrets mais présents. Amertume modérée, Corps légèrement liquoreux. Belle longueur en bouche. Une belle réussite d’inspiration belge.
