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.

I had this beer as “Mikkeller Cocio Bajer”. Cocio Bajes apparently is a trade name owned by a Danish dairy company. Because of this Mikkeller is not allowed to call this beer like that, it is listed differently on bottles & since Mikkeller doesn’t call it officially “Cocio Bajes”, you cannot list that name on RB. Still I got the beer with that name & I don’t appear to be unique in that aspect. Basically how complicated can you make the name of a beer??? Took me several attempts to locate this on RB. Okay, you got a cease and desist, just change the name like everywhere, this crap is complicated.

#99 Mikkeller. Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft during Zwanze Day shenanigans. Blackish dark brown, little tanned head. Big roast on the nose couple with some creaminess & sweetness, getting dark berries jam here, light red grapes. Taste is big roast, brambleberries & red grapes, jam of the previous, bitter roast, creamy nature, milk chocolate, coffee, liquorish, slight bitterness in the back. Round, creamy, big body with less carb. I really enjoyed it.

Pours dark brown with a large tan head and some small floating white chunks... Nose shows overt chocolate and roasted malt along with some fresh roasted coffee. Lovely. Sweet flavour, more chocolate and softer coffee. A bit too sugary sweet though. Could use more carbonation and a thicker body.

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!

14/IX/13 - on tap @ Hoppy Loft (Delirium café, Brussels) - BB: n/a (2013-855) Thanks to KyotoLefty for sharing the beer!

Clear brown beer, aery beige head, totally unstable, had some chunks in it, what looked like pieces of butter or cream. Aroma: sweet mocha, caramel, pretty sugary, and for the Dutch/Belgians: "koetjesreep", I guess it’s just really the lactose that you can smell. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: sugary, mocha, caramel, lactose sweetness, some coffee. Aftertaste: sweet, coffee, caramel, some mocha. If you’re seeking to have a "chocolate beer", I guess this about the best you can get.

Ungstrup (29022) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2013
Draft. A black beer with a faint brown shine at the bottom of the glass under a fluffy dark brown head. The aroma has chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of chocolate, lactose, and roasted malt, leading to a dry roasted finish - too roasted to be a chocolate milk

Taste comprises roast malt, chocolate, light coffee notes akin to espresso/tirimasu. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, roast coffee finish. Good stuff.
