Brewed by Mikkeller at Ørbæk Bryggeri, Ørbæk, Denmark.
Mikkellers tribute to the foul-mouthed stewardess Jackie Brown from Quentin Tarantino’s movie of the same name. It’s a roasty, chocolaty brown ale with hints of coffee and licorice. Being a Mikkeller brew the malts are inevitably complimented by a great amount of hop bitterness, aroma and flavour.
Ingredients : Water, malt (pale, munich, cara-pils, cara-crystal, brown and chocolate), flaked oats, hops (nugget, simcoe and centennial) and ale yeast.

Apr 2, 2008 Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Dark brown body. Foamy head. Roasted coffee aroma. Taste is also real roasty with chocolate well-pronounced. Also taste of coffee, toffee and licorice. Very creamy texture. Quite bitter as well. Enjoyable.

McWorta (833) - LUXEMBOURG - MAY 2, 2015
Clear copper-brown colour with a lightly tan pillowy-creamy fine poring head with excellent lacings. Aromas of a mix of tropical fruit and toasty malt develop with notes of subtle barnyard develop. Light lively, soft bit slick texture and a surprisingly light-medium body. Light roast malt, chocolate and instant coffee sweet-bitterness with a well pronounced fruityness rounding the malt center of. Developping chocolate-fruity bitterness develops on the finish and has its momentum.

Bottle. Brown with frotty head. In aroma roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, some fruity esters - nice in overall. In taste roasted malt, caramel, malt, medium bitterness. A little too low body, beer was a bit watery. To sum up - very nice brown ale.

Bontus (666) - Flanders, BELGIUM - APR 24, 2015
Bottle, Delhaize. Weird to find Mikkeller in a supermarkt here. Brown ale, coffee-ish nose, but also hops. Quite balanced, bit of caramel propelled by carbonation. Decent, standard brown ale.

330 ml. bottle @ home. Purchased @ Delhaize. I always expected Mikkeller to become a global brand but it is still a real shock to being able to buy a Mikkeller beer in a supermarket in Belgium. Drank as “Brown / Jackie”. BBF 10/03/2017. Dark brown amber, mocha head. Lacing. Creamy mocha, bit thin, faint roast chocolate & rather big blue cheese hops (Sorachi Ace?). Taste is light bitter mocha roast, blue cheese hops, mocha powder, milk chocolate, creamy, oats, lactose, grainy, powdery, instant chocolate milk,… Grainy & very creamy body. Highly delicious, I love blue cheese hops. At least that is how they taste to me, not sure how they taste to others, I usually associate the taste with Sorachi Ace. Amazing stuff & this is a Brown Ale. Wowza.

Bottle at home. Pours dark copper brown with a beige head. Clear aroma of hops, malt, carame. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with notes of malt and roasted nuts and touches of yeast. Very good!

Found this and a few other Mikkellers in a local Delhaize supermarket, to my utmost delight... I wonder why it is called "Jackie Brown" here: the label litterally says "Brown / Jackie". Anyway: thickly lacing, light yellowish beige, medium thick, dense head over a hazy, dark wine red coloured beer. Rustic, malty aroma of burning wood, roasted pinenuts, bitter chocolate, hazelnut oil, almonds, black pepper, dates, orange peel hops (more so than normal for the style), freshly grated nutmeg, ginger powder, cranberries, very attractive. Taste begins with a restrained, elegant fruitiness (berries, dates, perhaps a faint banana suggestion), medium carbonated, evolving into a gracious, lean, pleasantly nutty and somewhat caramelly maltiness, lightly toasted, supple and subduedly sweetish; finish is equally malty, with a fair amount of peppery and earthy hop bitterishness on top of it, more so than usual for this style. Best viewed as an American-style brown ale I guess; I did expect a sweeter maltiness actually, but the unexpected hop bitter ending sure made up for that.

Sebilinz (800) - Linz, AUSTRIA - APR 10, 2015
Bottle. Brown body with tan head. Aroma is slightly roasted malts with some liquorice and hints of vanilla and herbs. Taste is a little bit thin and with roasted malts and some sourness. Aftertaste is roasted malts with balanced bitterness.

Kita (1347) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAR 31, 2015
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear amber brown color with large rocky light brown head, very nice lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel, berries, chocolate, oats, yeast and grassy hops. Taste starts with sour bready and fruity acidity, however sweet caramel, oats and roasted malts quickly dominate the palate. Mouthfeel is mild spicy, while finish is grassy bitter. Medium to full body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. It seemed like a hybrid between Belgian and brown ale...
