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.

Rating 100!! Only took me about 4 years to get!!! Aroma is pretty good, little chocolaty, good amount of licorice, and some nuttiness. Appearance is spot on, it’s brown, well carbonated and clear. Flavor is solid, I get some nuttiness, a little licorice backed up with a malty backbone. I do get some astringency in the finish which is a shame. The description mentions a good amount of hop bitterness, but I’m not noticing too much hops with this beer. Mouthfeel is alright, body is a little light for what I would expect based on the aroma and taste. Carbonation is good. Again, get a bit of astringency in the finish. Overall, not bad, aroma is great, appearance is spot on, flavor and palate are a bit marred by a bit of astringency. It’s worth trying at least.

Brown color and small brown/white head. Aroma and taste of hops, citrus, malt and caramel. Brown ales have never been my thing bu this one beats the most.

Pours a really nice clear dark chestnut with a frothy Khaki head and lots of lacing .... Aroma of a boat load of Malts, caramel, roasted, nutty, chocolate and faded citrusy/floral hops .... Taste is of roasted, caramel, nutty, chocolate Malts and a bitter faded floral and lightly citrusy hop..... Has a big bitter hop bite and residual sugars .... Very sweet and malty with a nice bitter hop bite.... Finish is dry malty with a lingering bitter hop bite .... Very solid above average brown ale

Fireside 1L bottle. Tough to separate aroma from fire. Pours deep deep bronze with healthy mashed potato head. Lively carbonation that does not want to settle. Flavor is a drop of molasses and very nicely balanced hops. Tough to find descriptors- graham cracker, honeycomb, burnt biscuit are some that come to mind. A nice brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"only 6%?! really? you wouldn’t know it by the big aroma or flavor of this beer. loads of chocolate with some roasted malt, coffee, and hop bitterness in there for good measure. a dirty brown ale, if you will. pretty nice, but as i didn’t pay for it...not sure if it’s worth the price."

A Brown ale whith a lot of class.. Pours a fine and thick head. Smells a lot of hops and chocolate and tastes the same. "Balance" would be the one word i would choose to descripe this beer
