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.

Kita (1315) - 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 (2996) - 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 (3766) - 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.

GreatDane1632 (673) - USA - DEC 31, 2014
On tap -- Served in a 10oz English styled glass. Deep dark brown with thin tan bubbles. Aroma was noble hop and caramel. Flavor was a dark roasty, english brown style, with a higher abundance of hops than typical english browns. Overall I found it nice, but nothing exceptional.
