COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Medium brown color with a medium to thin tan head. Aroma is roasted grains with a touch of caramel. Flavor is initially quite dry, crisp - followed by some roasted notes of grains and a hint of caramel, then immediately dries back out - slightly bitter finish.

gekocht in delhaize in leuven .Verrassend fris in de neus, een mooie balans tussen het hoppige en het bruine karakter van het bier.

From the bottle, the aroma reminded me of chocolate, but from the glass, it’s hop that dominate. For the taste, three letters come in mind : IPA. Also you can add "bitterness" to the list. Overall, great beer, but can become disgusting after one or two bottles. I just don’t know where does the chocolate aroma came from, and I am a bit sad not to find some in the taste.

Bière légère tout en étant bien onctueuse. Le houblon est bien présent et l’amertume reste en bouche.

Ulysse (282) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2015
Quite hoppy aroma. First impression is the one of holding a Black IPA. Short lived foam top. Slightly spicy. Earthy feel to it.

poech73 (255) - BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2015
Bière brune version british avec un corps malté doux et crémeux offrant un nez très parfumé fleuri et herbacé aux saveurs de noisette, de caramel légèrement cacaoté. Dommage, le simcoe qui jure un peu: là où on s’attendrait à un dégustation plus ronde, voire d’onctueuse chez une brune, son amertume trop prononcée surpasse les arômes maltées pourtant délicieux et bien équilibrés. Erreur de casting!

mjik83 (856) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2015
33cl flesje via Delhaize, Kontich Alcoholpercentage van 6% Uitgeschonken in Keyte glas Uiterlijk: donkerbruin met flinke schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: lekker bloemig / fruitig hoparoma dat je ruikt bij het openen van de fles. Smaak is ook lekker hoppig en bloemig, caramel, fruitig als abrikoos, Belgisch gist, gebrande koffie met bijbehorende bitterheid Conclusie: erg positief verrast had een standaard dubbel verwacht, maar dit bier vind ik erg smakelijk. Sowieso kom ik steeds vaker het Deense Mikkeller tegen in Nederland en België. Brouwen natuurlijk wel in Lochristi bij de Proef Brouwerij.

huineman (263) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 8, 2015
50 cl bottle. Pours amber brown, abundant tawny head. Aroma is intense: Coca-Cola (yes), dandelion, honey, chicory, chocolate... Good nose. Taste starts sweet-ish. Then sour, but watery. Finishes over-the-top bitter, harsh. Starts great then goes down the slope till it crashes. Real pity.

McWorta (839) - LUXEMBOURG - MAY 2, 2015
Clear copper-brown colour with a lightly tan pillowy-creamy fine poring head with excellent lacings. Aromas of a mix of tropical fruit and toasty malt develop with notes of subtle barnyard develop. Light lively, soft bit slick texture and a surprisingly light-medium body. Light roast malt, chocolate and instant coffee sweet-bitterness with a well pronounced fruityness rounding the malt center of. Developping chocolate-fruity bitterness develops on the finish and has its momentum.
