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.

stefannilssons (1580) - SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2011
En mycket angenäm ölupplevelse, bra balanserad och en härlig maltighet och mjuk som sammet. Det bör tilläggas att detta var en berusad recension.

johndoughty (5176) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2011

Varenda kvadratcentimeter av ens njutningscentra fylls upp av det här ölet. Ingenting antyds, allt textas med stora bokstäver och förstärks som genom en megafon (en smaklökarnas hörapparat?). I för stora mängder riskerar sinnena att krokna och bli alltför dästa, men rätt doserat är det en försmak av det överjordiska.

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - OCT 3, 2011
Keg at North Bar, Leeds. Pours a lovely deep brown, finger of whitish head. Aroma is lovely, caramel, hops, booze, a little tomato juice. Taste is lovely, great flavour from the hops, some caramel, a little Milka chocolate. Good and earthy, with a more bitter finish than I’d expected. A little dry. Lovely. In a dimly lot bar, teamed with Nughthawks At The Diner by Tom Waits, its nigh on perfect.

Scopey (13329) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2011
Keg at Brewdog Bar Aberdeen. It pours hazy dark brown, with a thick beige head. The nose is chocolate, smoke, bonfire, wood and cheddar. The taste is sweet caramel, toffee, Scottish tablet, hazelnut syrup, herbal, pepper, liquorice, chocolate and brown sugar, with a dry woody-hop finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. Decent, but I greatly prefer the Kernel Imperial brown.
