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.

Vignale (3638) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 27, 2011
Kan väl nästan kallas för brown IPA. Mörkt maghognyfärgad med kompakt lågt skum. Stor men rund och snäll blommig humledoft. Stor rund kropp med mjölkchoklad, höstlöv och färskt trä i kombination med en fruktig och blommig humle, måttlig men väl markerad beska och lång eftersmak. Finstämt, välbalanserat, smakrikt som vanligt av Nögne.

ABS (1012) - Stokke, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2011
Pours dark brown. Lots of slightly tan head. Lightly roasted malt nose, some alcohol and some red fruit. Roasted malt, but not burnt, red fruit and alcohol aroma. Very good, but a bit to much alcohol when it gets to warm (ie. the bottom of the glass).

olsvammel (6843) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a dark brown-black liquid with a reddish tint. Also a big light brown head. Smell is deep with with chocolate, some nuts and also a hint of coffee. Is that some grassy hops in the background? Rich taste of coffee, dark bread and chocolate. Very musty and nice. Also thick body and smooth mouth feel with a low to average amount of carbonation. A very nice beer.
