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.

Draught at Mikkeller Bar. Hazy dark brown coloured with a small off-white head. Light roasted aroma of dark chocolate with notes of berries and coffee. Light roasted flavour of berries and dark chocolate. Dry finish of chocolate.

Draft @ Hoppy Loft. Couleur brune foncée, presque boueuse avec des particules de levure, col est minimaliste. Arôme malté grillé-chocolaté avec un bouquet farineux et ce rappel de vieille levure de boulanger. Palais est malté - profond, chocolaté-café et grillé. Reste épaisse, poussiéreuse avec une amertume discrète en fin de bouche. Au final, rien de spécial, présentation est terrible ou soit le fût n’était pas correct.

Draught at Delirium Hoppy Loft under the name Mikkeller Cocio Bajer. Pours dark brown, almost black with a small beige head. Moderate coffee aroma, also chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is heavy coffee grounds, sweet, light chocolate in the end. All in all the flavor is mostly coffee grounds which is really not my type.

TAP at Delirium Brussels, shared with Mathieu87 and other. Took a while to find this beer... APPEARANCE: black beer, small unstable beige head. NOSE: vanilla, chocolate, coffee, toffee, and yes, also "Koetjesreep" as Tim suggested! TASTE: vanilla, heavy bitter aftertaste, chocolate, lactose, some coffee.

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.

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.

[email protected] - pours a brown beer with a poor head retention and leaving unappetizing traces on the side of the glass; fairly toasted biscuity maltiness with notes of tobacco, chocolate and hints of molasses; subtle carbonation, a good malt backbone, some sweetness and a modefrate bitterness; long aftertaste of cookies and tobacco again

Draft @ Mikkeller & Friends, Copenhagen. Pours a dark brown color with a small off-white head. Has a roasted malty coffee and chocolate aroma. Roasted malty coffee and chocolate flavor. Has a roasted malty coffee finish with hints of chocolate.

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.

Koelschtrinker (22074) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 21, 2013
Süßer, herb schokoladiger Antrunk. Rund würzig, ausgewogen, weiterhin schokoladig, etwas Karamell. Cremig, dunkel, geringe Süße. Sehr gut! 9/12/12/12//12
