COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Wow, a warming brown ale, that kicks a hop punch, and gives a drying hop finish. If you only had to drink one brewers beer for life, it would have to be mikkeller . The king .

pentaz (1238) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy brown with a lasting big creamy tan head. Aroma is caramel, nuts, oats, earthy and herbal hops, licorice root, mild roasted malt, and very mild coffee. Taste is moderate sweet, near moderate bitter and very light acidic. Body is medium, texture is very creamy, carbonation is moderate. Finishes mild dry with licorice and mild dusty. Great creamyness, but I don’t appreciate the finish.

VDuquerroux (268) - Airvault, FRANCE - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A dark brown beer with light brown hues on top. Big creamy beige head with a good retention. Beautiful lacing. Roasty and fruity (red berries, blackcurrant, blackberry), herbs, coffee. Medium bitter, light sweet. Light body, silky texture, medium carbonation, bitter refreshing finish with a sweet note. Overall, a delicious roasty fruity beer balanced with dry bitterness.

Renobob (619) - Besançon, FRANCE - AUG 16, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Arômes de chocolat, de noisette, de café. Ne équilibre même s'il manque à peine de corpulence à mon goût. Un bon produit, à la Mikkeller.

Xavalias (130) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2014 On tap at Mikkeller’s Øl & Brød, paired with a dish of smoked egg yolk, mushrooms and malt cheese (initial rating august 11, 2014); and on bottle (august 30, 2014). Dark brown, nearly black, with a thick dark beige to pale brown, creamy head. Lots of lacing. Aroma is heavy of roasted malts, not burnt, but rather one dimensional, with some chocolate, licorice, caramel, nuts. No space left for fruits or anything else. The brown sweetness is balanced here with loads of bitter hops and malts, for a long bitter finish, Guinness-style. Heavily hopped for the style, pairs beautifully with food.
