COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mikkeller’s Brown Nose is a brown ale brewed with lots of lactose and sweet Belgian chocolate, which makes it as thick and sweet as the ’Brown Nose’ you’re being served opposite your sausages, at the Copenhagen swinger stands.

Bruce’s Birthday Bash at the Craft Clerkenwell. Keg. Opaque dark brown beer, tiny tan head. Smooth palate with minerally carbonation. Pleasant dark chocolate, mildly sweet. Underneath is well buried and slightly bitter dark fruits. But it’s all about the chocolate here. Nice beer!

Keg at CBC - Clerkenwell, London during Bruce’s 30th Birthday Party. Many thanks to Kenny. Pours murky brown with a light, beige cream head. Rich dark coffee aroma. Medium sweet flavor with dark sugars, coffee, toast, brown sugar, brown bread. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Faintly syrupy. Lightly drying to finish with some earth, brown sugar and toasty bread, more coffee. Decent stuff overall.

Keg @ CBC Clerkenwell. The pour’s a slightly hazy muddy brown with a small tan head. The aroma’s bright, sweet coffee creamer. A bit of artificial chocolate, concentrated vanilla. General brown sugar sweetness. The taste is more artificial coffee creamer. Sugar-coated chestnut. Chocolate syrup. Just a very sweet beer, really. Slightly thin profile. Overall, one of Mikkeller’s weakest beers. Not one I’d return to...
