, 1 Dec 2011

Brains Dark, the beer on which Brains was founded, has been named the ‘World’s Best Dark Mild Ale’ and ‘Europe’s Best Dark Mild Ale’ at the World Beer Awards 2011.

The award means that it now ranks as one of the world’s 50 best beers for the second time, after first picking up the accolade in 2008.

An international panel of judges described the beer as having a "fresh tobacco nose with liquorice and burnt fruit. Toasty, not too sweet. Nice and dry. Light hops. Coffee, chocolate, bitter hops and roasted grain. Dry Finish."
