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.

Pours a dark mahogony from the bottle with a cascading head of tan foam. Plenty of hops on the nose with faint licorice. The taste is of burnt espresso beans, dark cocoa, and copper. Silky mouthfeel that ends like you’ve been sucking on a penny. Very distinct brew that’s worth revisiting.

pentaz (1230) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy brown with a lasting big creamy tan head. Aroma is caramel, nuts, oats, earthy and herbal hops, licorice root, mild roasted malt, and very mild coffee. Taste is moderate sweet, near moderate bitter and very light acidic. Body is medium, texture is very creamy, carbonation is moderate. Finishes mild dry with licorice and mild dusty. Great creamyness, but I don’t appreciate the finish.

VDuquerroux (263) - Airvault, FRANCE - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A dark brown beer with light brown hues on top. Big creamy beige head with a good retention. Beautiful lacing. Roasty and fruity (red berries, blackcurrant, blackberry), herbs, coffee. Medium bitter, light sweet. Light body, silky texture, medium carbonation, bitter refreshing finish with a sweet note. Overall, a delicious roasty fruity beer balanced with dry bitterness.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Arômes de chocolat, de noisette, de café. Ne équilibre même s'il manque à peine de corpulence à mon goût. Un bon produit, à la Mikkeller.

Xavalias (110) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2014
On tap at Mikkeller’s Øl & Brød, paired with a dish of smoked egg yolk, mushrooms and malt cheese. Taste is heavy of roasted malts, chocolate, licorice, caramel, nuts. The brown sweetness is balanced with loads of bitter hops, for a long bitter finish, Guinness-style.
