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.

Bottle. Deep brown with medium light brown, semi-densed head. Medicore head retention and lacing. Moderate malty (caramel) and toffee aroma combined with some nuts and smokey light smokey character. Some booze in the background noticable. Taste is semi-sweet wuth some medium bitterness in the end of degustation. Medium body, average carbonation, finish is bitter, semi-dry and nutty. In overall typical brown ale with some higher alc. vol. and more hoppier than usual. The good thing is that this beer is well balanced.
