Brewed by Mikkeller at Řrbćk Bryggeri, Řrbćk, 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.

Marstonlad (768) - Helsinki, - MAR 7, 2013
Bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Pours very dark brown with a frothy medium-sized head. Aroma has roasty maltiness with notes of chocolate but also plenty of fruity elements; the hop aroma is very noticeable. Taste is also surprisingly hoppy and the roastedness and sweetness are comparably low. Hops are nearly pushing malts out of the scene with the bitterness and the exotic fruity flavour. Couldn’t detect much chocolate or coffee in the taste. Medium body, slick. This is a strange brown ale, has more similarities with IPAs than other brown ales.

mecafilo (210) - Perugia, ITALY - SEP 24, 2016
Bottle @ Elfo’s Pub, Perugia, Italy. Pours with a dark brown colour, small tan head. Aroma is medium malty, with notes of dark chocolate and roasted malts; also a bit hoppy; a bit faint. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter; bitter not in a good way, to be honest. Medium to heavy body, creamy texture, fizzy carbonation, very bitter finish.

De geur is heel lekker. De kleur donker. De smaak is heel rijk, een toets van gebrande mout. Lekker.

stravale (2834) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - AUG 30, 2016
Bottle from Skelly’s, Ballymahon [290816]
Dark brown, hazy, frothy fluffy beige head, good lacing
Aroma of citrus, browm caramel malts, dab of yeast, dissipates away
Taste of brown caramel, bitter citrus zest, dark fruits, dab of nutty malts, hint of roast, bitter orange, quite complex, good flavour
Palate - Medium carb and body, quite rich, bitter citrus and roast. Finish is bitter, bitter pine hops, fruity brown malts, nutty soft roast
Overall - Complex beer, a bit unusual. I like brown ales - this works for me

ALIBALI (777) - Kiel, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2016
G: Extrem hoppy und erinnert aufgrund seiner Röst/Malzigkeit ein wenig an ein BIPA. T: Überraschend trocken, säuerlich und absolut Brown Ale untypisch. Sehr interessant. Echt trocken ( hat es einen ordentlichen Schuss Nelson oder Blanc erhalten?). Am Ende verschmelzen die Hopfen mit säuerlichen Flavours zu einem wahrlich schäumenden Finish. Samt & cremig. Klasse. NH: Röstig, Schoko, Nerdy und mal so ganz anders. HOPPY natürlich auch......0,33l Flasche von einem Supermarkt in Anderlecht. Ca. 2 Euro.

mariuspoenari (1689) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2016
33cl bottle. Clear dark ruby-brown pour with a medium height beige head. Notes of citrus hops, metal, lightly roasted malts, some pine hops, light dark chocolate. Medium body, high carbonation and a bitter, refreshing finish.

Sparf (238) - Östersund, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2016
Mycket choklad och en del karamell i doften. En lite oljigt nötig arom finns ocksĺ här. Ingen syra. Nästan svart brygd med dragning ĺt mörkt tegel. Stadigt skum med halvlĺng halveringstid. Smaken är utsökt balanserad med en kraftig, halvsöt malt och en rejäl dos humlebeska. Toner av kaffe och choklad. Avrundningen är kort och halvtorr. I eftersmaken tar beskan över men utan att bli jobbig. Kroppen är halvfyllig och kolsyrehalten nĺgot för hög.

heavy (2773) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 14, 2016
Apr. ’16. A 0.33 l bottle that poured a hazy brown body with medium sized head. Hoppy aroma, pungent with notable mildly roasted malt like cocoa and coffee. Flavor was bitter, a lot of orange bitterness, a bit of caramel, roasted sugar, especially in the aftertaste. Quite simple but very effective, as these recent hoppy brown ales tend to be!

lio88 (8) - ATH, BELGIUM - JUL 9, 2016 does not count
Nice fresh hoppy earth head with strong liquorice notes & torrefied underground. Plain dark colour with light brown foam. Taste is, as expected, sweet & strongly dominated by coffee & dark caramel with corresponding bitterness. Successful beer but sweetness and liquorice make it hard to finish for my taste.

gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUL 4, 2016
750 ml bottle at home - 2009 vintage. Pours dark brown, small head. Damn, nose is still full of roasted malts, coffee notes and caramel. Light body, little bitter and little sour, but flavours have well integrated; cold coffee and caramel.

Fules (826) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 21, 2016
Monumentális, örökké tartó hab, barna szín. Illata intenzív, karamell, pörkölt maláta és gyümölcsök (alma, megy), pici édeskés feketecsoki aromával kiegészülve. Pörkölt malátás, kissé savanykás alap, fekete csokival és komoly komlós keserűsséggel megspékelve. Hosszú, kissé fanyar, kesernyés, pörkölt utóíz. Közepesen testes.
