Tasted Thursday 18 June 2009. 330ml bottle, 6.0% Alc/Vol.
I really like this beer and being a bit of a hop fiend helps. It is a Brown Ale dedicated (or so the Mikkeller website says) to the Jackie Brown character of the Quentin Tarantino movie of the same name.
Dark reddish-brown in colour with a nice dense fluffy head that hangs around. The aromas are hop dominated with some roasted nutty and malty characters underneath. The carbonation comes on strong initially but balances out straight away. Again the hops are come on strong but it has a fantastic full malty, toasty, nutty palate. Some charry notes too and a long persistent bitterness on the finish.
Top stuff. Drink around 8-10 degrees.
