COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There is a long story to this malty ale. It was first brewed in the spring 2006 in Nřrrebro Bryghus in Copenhagen, Denmark, as a joint brew between Nřgne Ř and Nřrrebro. Nřrrebro 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.

danielst (384) - AUSTRIA - DEC 25, 2016
Handgun. Hazy brown color. Sweet caramel and candy aroma alongside mildly earthy hops. Tastes like toasted malt and toffee, overall on the sweeter side. Light carbonation, light to medium mouthfeel. Good, but not spectacular.

Fules (1100) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - DEC 22, 2016
Nagy, tartós, bézs hab, sötétbarna szín. Karamelles, malátás illat. Karamelles, pörkölt malátás, aszalt gyümölcsös ízvilág, kissé száraz lecsengéssel. Közepesen testes és kesernyés, közepesen szénsavas. Csodás, kifinomult sör, nagyon jó összhanggal és kiváló egyensúllyal.

DraftDodger (1353) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2016
Copenhagen 27/11 2016. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Brown "Ř" on the label (does not seem to wear any clothes). Pours slightly hazy dark brown til a red tinge. Creamy off-white head. Settles as fine 0,5 cm thick creamy layer of foam. Lacing on the side of the glass. Strong aroma of roasted dark malts, caramel, wood and bitter coffee. A little alcohol lurking in the background. Soft carbonation and thick oily palate. Flavor is quite sweet and roasted but balanced by a quite pronounced coffee bitterness. Bitter aftertaste with some caramel. Lingering. A very fine and powerful Brown Ale. A pleasure to drink.

500ml bottle found by chance at Liquorland Tauranga. Dark brown color with creamy head and good steady carbonation. Aroma is rum and raisin, roasted malt, sherry cask and Christmas cake. Mild bitterness with a full malt body and finish. Nice.

Draft 0.25l at Thornbridge Bar S Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands. Taste with cika Boban, 07.09.2016. Pour it dark brown color with small white head. Aroma of milk chocolate and coffee. Taste starts with roasted malt, smooth creamy all the time, roasted coffee beans, some caramel on the back, pinch of bitter feel, medium to full body, bread, creamy to sticky texture, average carbonation, long finish. Nice!

rumore (378) - Rimini, ITALY - NOV 8, 2016
From bottle at Copenhagen airport. Aroma is quite nice, with caramel and hazelnut, maybe some licorice. Pours dark copper with limited brownish foam. Body is medium-high with a nice carbonation feeling. Taste has a good sweet base given by malts, but bitterness is somehow superior in the mouth. Finish is dry enough, with some persistence of the bitterness. Nice beer!
