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.

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.

Alebarasi (45) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - NOV 26, 2016
Pours dark reddish-brown color, which gives red color, if looked towards the light. Medium body, medium carbonisation, large tan head, no lacing. Earthy aroma of citruses (predominantly orange), roasted malts and nuts, pine, prune, resins, caramel and a touch of chocolate. It has nice, caramel-like taste with hints of citruses, oats, maple, dark fruits, wet hops and orange peel. Strong mocha kick in beginning, earthy core and dry finish. Barely detectable toffee aftertaste. Smooth and decent brew. I recommend it for brown ale enthusiasts.

Zilverenmaan (40) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 18, 2016
Aroma of sweetish chocolate, taste complex and refreshing: burned malts, bitter coffee, sweet chocolate and hoppy. Both hops and sweetness lingers. Unusual and distinctive but very pleasant.

Jackie Brown almost pours and drinks more like a Stout. Dark brown color with tan suds. Rich malty nose with some earthy chocolate. Lightly bitter taste with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, cream, and licorice. Body falls between the medium and full range - pretty hearty for a Brown Ale. Exceptionally smooth texture. This brew really is as pretty as leading lady Pam Grier.

Excalibur123 (376) - Soria, SPAIN - NOV 13, 2016
Vierte mbar oscuro con generosa cabeza de espuma beige de buena retencin; aromas a vino oloroso, frutos negros, malta tostada, chocolate y lpulo. En boca entrada media, maltosa con amargor moderado, notas a regaliz, caf y terrosas, cuerpo medio pleno y carbnico medio, pos gusto largo y bastante amargo y seco, cerveza compleja y fiel a su estilo.

mecafilo (210) - Perugia, ITALY - SEP 24, 2016
Bottle @ Elfos Pub, Perugia, Italy. Pours with a dark brown colour, small tan head. Aroma is medium malty, with notes of dark chocolate and roasted malts; also a bit hoppy; a bit faint. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter; bitter not in a good way, to be honest. Medium to heavy body, creamy texture, fizzy carbonation, very bitter finish.

De geur is heel lekker. De kleur donker. De smaak is heel rijk, een toets van gebrande mout. Lekker.

Bottle from Skellys, Ballymahon [290816]
Dark brown, hazy, frothy fluffy beige head, good lacing
Aroma of citrus, browm caramel malts, dab of yeast, dissipates away
Taste of brown caramel, bitter citrus zest, dark fruits, dab of nutty malts, hint of roast, bitter orange, quite complex, good flavour
Palate - Medium carb and body, quite rich, bitter citrus and roast. Finish is bitter, bitter pine hops, fruity brown malts, nutty soft roast
Overall - Complex beer, a bit unusual. I like brown ales - this works for me

ALIBALI (964) - Kiel, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2016
G: Extrem hoppy und erinnert aufgrund seiner Rst/Malzigkeit ein wenig an ein BIPA. T: berraschend trocken, suerlich und absolut Brown Ale untypisch. Sehr interessant. Echt trocken ( hat es einen ordentlichen Schuss Nelson oder Blanc erhalten?). Am Ende verschmelzen die Hopfen mit suerlichen Flavours zu einem wahrlich schumenden Finish. Samt & cremig. Klasse. NH: Rstig, Schoko, Nerdy und mal so ganz anders. HOPPY natrlich auch......0,33l Flasche von einem Supermarkt in Anderlecht. Ca. 2 Euro.

Sparf (247) - stersund, SWEDEN - AUG 12, 2016
Mycket choklad och en del karamell i doften. En lite oljigt ntig arom finns ocks hr. Ingen syra. Nstan svart brygd med dragning t mrkt tegel. Stadigt skum med halvlng halveringstid. Smaken r utskt balanserad med en kraftig, halvst malt och en rejl dos humlebeska. Toner av kaffe och choklad. Avrundningen r kort och halvtorr. I eftersmaken tar beskan ver men utan att bli jobbig. Kroppen r halvfyllig och kolsyrehalten ngot fr hg.
