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.

Ungstrup (36537) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2009
Bottled, vintage 2006, sampled 2009. A polished chestnut red-brown beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with nuts hitting you at first, then comes notes of malt, caramel, alcohol, and brown sugar. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of caramel, nuts, and brown sugar, with aged vinous notes, probably due to it being 3 years old, and some roasted malt notes. The mouthfeel is very smooth with a medium carbonation, and leading to a dry and slighlty bitter finish, where some roasted notes of caramel and nuts lingers.

oh6gdx (26430) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 23, 2008
Bottled. Murky reddish brown colour with beigeish brown head. Leaves nice lace. Aroma is a lot of caramel, raisins, some licorice and spices. Flavour is very much the same with wood and freshly cut grass added. The alcohol gives a slight sweet touch to it.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2007
(Bottle 50 cl) Hazy, reddish brown with a dense, beige head leaving laces. Fat, nutty nose. Rather full-bodied with lots of nuts and burned caramel - and also an edge of burned malt. The finish is dry and bitter. 080707

omhper (24645) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2006
[Bottled at Københavnske Øldage] Ruby. Small creamy head. Surprisingly neutral aroma. Sweet with a really solid body. There’s molasses and and intense flavours of roasty malt. When the flavours opens up it reveals cookie malt and licorice. Salty finish. I much prefer the non-imperialized version.

Opaque dark brown beer, good cream - tan coloured head. Soft and light palate with fine carbonation. Creamy malt, little licorice. Hop bitterness kicks in but there isn’t much hops fruit here. Semi dry finish. Minerals.

500 ml bottle at DC local tasting. Brown color, small tan head. Aroma is caramel. Taste is rather plain. Needs more complexity.
