Brewed by Mikkeller at rbk Bryggeri, rbk, Denmark.
Mikkellers tribute to the foul-mouthed stewardess Jackie Brown from Quentin Tarantinos movie of the same name. Its 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.

heavy (2808) - 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!

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 (1637) - 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.

LazyPyro (917) - 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 thats 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 (615) - 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.

PowY (499) - AUSTRIA - MAY 26, 2016
330 ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a large light brown head. Strong fruity and hoppy aroma of grapefruit and litchi. Taste is malty and complex. Dark chocolate and caramel with a decent bitterness that is, however, a little to persistent. Maybe a little high carbonation.

drjoeng (1103) - SINGAPORE - MAY 21, 2016
6%ABV. Brown Ale. Tapped out clear brown. 32SRM. Nose has roasted nuts with chestnuts, hazelnuts with a nice Christmas like spice profile with cinnamon and nutmeg. Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate has black bread, roasted barley, sesame, stone fruit fullness. Spicy with cilantro and basil. Finish is medium with spicy and bitter with a Woody finish at the end. The spicy Woody finish makes it feel almost like a purl, which has wormwood in it.
