Editor’s note: Formerly known as "Svaneke Dobbel Brun".

Danish: "Double Brown Ale" Dobbelt gæret. Overgæringen føres køligt og afbrydes abrupt ved nedsvaling. Derpå tilsættes husets undergær som klarer resten. Denne gærføring bevirker subtile overgærede træk, samtidigt med at øllets klaring forbedres. Sådan set modstykket til ”steam beer”. Smagen holder strejf af the, citrus, ristearoma og karamel. Øllet serveres bedst i ballonglas til det kolde, kraftige køkken. Over- og undergæret.

This brown ale is both top- and bottom-fermented. Foam is beautiful and very stable. It has a nice aroma of caramel, citrus and clear notes of toasted malt. Does not taste like a usual brown ales, but has a more acid taste of citrus with light caramel notes and distinct hops in the aftertaste. If you want the classic brown ale with caramel and maybe nutty flavor, so it is not here to look. Type correctness is pushed to the extreme, but certainly not forgotten in this brown ale, which is a good alternative.

A nice brown ale. It has got a good taste, which is not dominated by liquorice. A nice palette and a good smell. You may drink more than one of these. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

50 cl. bottle, BBE. October 2012. Slightly hazy, amber colour with a small white head, that fades to a thin film. Lightly roasted aroma with chocolate and caramel malts, nuts and butterscotch. Medium sweet taste with some butter notes. Medium body with a creamy texture, soft carbonation. Medium length finish with caramel, butterscotch and nuts. OK brown ale, has more flavour than the successor, Svaneke Brown Ale.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2011 Bottle, 50 cl: Slightly hazy reddish brown with a lacing light brown creamy head. Fruity malty aroma with notes of roasted malts, caramel, nuts, brown sugar and butterscotch. Taste is sweet and medium hoppy bitter with notes af aboves plus some piney notes, leading to a dry but nutty, bitter finish. Medium body, average carbonation. Seems like a mix between a German style Bock and an American Brown Ale. Strange, but not that strange. Good, but not that good.
