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.

Bottle drank at home. Dark reddish brown color. Aromas of coffee and roasted malts and hops. Taste is medium bitter. oily body, high carbonation. Hops and bitterness kick in after. Like a toned down koppi coffee ipa, pretty good.

500ml bottle. (5.9%ABV) Pours an unclear, dark brown with a reddish hue and a huge, dense, long lasting, tan head that laces. Roasted malt aroma with dark chocolate, coffee, liquorice and citrus hops. Roasted malt flavour with dark chocolate, coffee, liquorice, a hint of nuts and a very dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. Hoppiest Brown Ale I have ever tried. It’s ok, but I’m not sure it suits the style.

Very rich new-style brown ale- almost stouty. Strong new wold grapefruit hops, but goes well and balances nicely. Good one.

Pierwsza przygoda z kultowym duńskim browarem i jest moc! Kolor brązowy wpadający w czerń, zmętniony. Piana bezowa intensywna, opadła z czasem tworząc spory lacing na szkle. Aromat palonych słodów- kawa/czekolada do tego orzechy i lukrecjowa słodycz. W smaku podobnie – paloność z kwaskiem bije się o palmę pierwszeństwa z goryczką, lekko osadzająca się na języku i podniebieniu. Wysycenie średnie do wysokiego jak i alkohol (choć ukryty) podbijają ją dodatkowo (goryczkę). Od pierwszego „niucha” oraz łyka ma człowiek pewność, że pije piwo z pierwszej ligi.

From tap. Dark copper brown color with beige head. Aroma is malty, roasted, chocolate and coffee notes, caramel, bready and hoppy. Sweet and light bitter taste like aroma. Medium oily body with soft carbonation.

bartlebier (2765) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2015
Bottles bb03/2017, Delhaize pop-ups BE. Hazelnut-chocolate pour, with dulcet aromas of milk chocolate and peach ice cream spiked with that clean and flowery, near-metallic signature Mikkeller fresh hoppiness (lime, grape, peach peel). Great balance of bitter chocolate roast in the malt, good oat cream, and confident hop bursts of passion fruit peel on a hint of residual yeast bitterness. Great continental brown ale, going on PoMo stout.
