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.

Very dark for a brown ale, nice roasty character, taste of sirup and dark honey, finishes a bit hoppy with tastes of citrus fruit, but not too much. Nice light mouthfeel, quite refreshing and drinkable for such a dark beer.

ALIBALI (523) - 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 (1379) - 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 (226) - 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 (2739) - 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 (7) - 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 (1713) - 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 (725) - 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.

LazyPyro (521) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2016
330ml bottle from Brewdog online. Hazy dark brown with a ridiculous 8 finger tan head, dying down to a stable and more reasonable one finger froth after a few minutes. Aroma of dark malts, chocolate, hint of coffee, gentle roast. Taste is malty, caramel, roast, coffee, some dark chocolate, bit of a spice/yeast note, hoppy bitterness at the end. Not too dissimilar to a porter actually. Very smooth oily texture. Great.

Just a weird observation but this is a Danish beer that’s brewed in Belgium then exported to the US then imported to the UK. Bizarrely inefficient way for BrewDog to source this beer but I guess it was worth it.

vincentvega72 (363) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2016 Donkerbruin bier met rijke mokkakleurige schuimkraag. Aroma van koffie, beetje chocolade, hout, lichte rook, hop. Beetje waterachtig in de mond maar afdronk maakt veel goed. Bitter (gebrande koffiebonen en hop) met chocolade-achtige toetsen. Goed.

Not quite my cup of beer, but still an interesting mix of bread malts and bitter hops.
