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.

Poured a dark amber color with a nice frothy head. Excelent roasty flavor with sweet, nutty flavors combined with a well balanced malty hop finish on the palate. Great Brown!

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.

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 (1332) - 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...

MrHangover (3050) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle as rail soda. Pours a slightly hazy brownish beer with a big beige head on top. Aroma has nutty notes, some earthy hops, sugar and caramel in there. Also some yeasty fruityness detected. Flavor is moderately bitter, more hoppy notes in the flavor than in the aroma. Slight grassy, citrussy with a cookie-like aftertaste. A bit strange, but OK.

DrAlexandre (19) - Niteroi, BRAZIL, BRAZIL - FEB 2, 2015
Coloração marrom acobreada. Espuma densa e perene, de alta formação e boa permanência, em dois dedos, marcando e formando belos laços nas laterais do copo. Aroma bem forte de caramelo, baunilha, maltês torrados e alcaçuz. Sabor inicialmente amargo dos maltes torrados e lúpulos, mesclado por um suave e assertivo de caramelo e alcaçuz. Final ríspido, seco e levemente salgado. Textura aveludada. Corpo e carbonatação média alta. Excelente. Umas das melhores da Mikkeller.

Bamsen78 (3942) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle. Pours nearly clear dark copper brown with airy but stable beige head. Clear aroma of hops, with notes of leaves, malt, caramel and yeast. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with notes of malt and roasted nuts and touches of yeast. Hints of citrus. Roasty and bitter aftertaste. A very decent Brown Ale.
