Triple Wood Knot Brown

Nøgne Ø Triple Wood Knot Brown is a 10% dark brown ale that is all about the oak. An Imperial Brown Ale brewed with oak chips and fermented even more in oak casks, this beer is the same as the Man in the Moon Barrel Aged Anniversary Imperial Brown Ale. This beer was only brewed for GABS 2014 and I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of the very few that were bottled.

Dark brown color with little to know head on the bottle i had, immediate aroma of oak, spices and vanilla. Tasted very nice with lots of dark fruits, figs, nuts, spice and plums but was quite boozy and this was always on the back of my mind. Medium bodied and definitely a sipper this one that seemed to get better the longer i took to drink it. Yes after a while the chocolate and dark rum comes through and the oak is more mellow with the vanilla tones, starting to really like this version of the classic Imperial Brown Ale.
