English pub ale meets the French farmhouse tradition and American oak aging in this dry, drinkable farmhouse mild ale. Full-flavored, but brewed with enough restraint to be highly sessionable. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and naturally conditioned.

Dark brown, thin beige head. Smells of roasted malts, caramel, hints of jester king farmhouse yeast, some nuts and dried fruits. Moderate sweet, dried fruits and caramel, roast, quite dry mouthfeel. Moderate bitter finish. Very easy drinkable, nice low alcohol that makes the drinkability even higher. Nice company to food

Aroma: (8- very high quality) Moderate roast with some coffee, but not coffee-centric; malted chocolate balls; pronounced lactic quality; a touch of oak. Appearance: (4- high quality) Murky dark brown at the core, but lightens up quite a bit around the edges; the head settles into a bone ring. Flavor: (8- very high quality) Matches the nose. The oak is more evident, but the roasty and lactic notes are the main show, the latter being even more evident as the beer warms. Palate: (4- high quality) Light body, thin texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. "Light" and "thin" are not usually words that I find favorable in describing a good texture for a beer, but they really work here. Overall: I really enjoyed this; was paired by surprise with a Guinness chocolate cake, and it was a winning combination. Interesting, but thoughtfully executed.

Carbonation is very light. The beer is almost still with little head. The color is very dark walnut but not opaque. Oak has produced pronounced vanilla character. The beer is very light but a chalky mouthfeel adds substance. This is certainly unique and interesting.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2013 Bottle at Monks. Reddish brown pour. Huge frothy beige head. Funky hop notes off the top. Tastes very unusual. Lots of cocoa. Fuzzy body. Meh.

750 ml bottle. Served in a tulip-like glass, the beer pours a reddish/brown color with an inch and a half light tan head that stayed around for a while. There’s also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like bready and caramel malt, chocolate, oak, dark fruit (cherries), and some spice. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s the addition of some nuts, vanilla and dark bread. Also, the chocolate is stronger in the taste than it is compared to the aroma. I thought the taste of this brew got better the longer it warmed up. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s easy to drink and is well carbonated. This is the 2nd Jester King brew I’ve tried, and I’ve liked them both so far. I’d like to try this one again in the future. $7.99 a bottle.

Bottle @ RG 20. Brown with light head and light lacing. Smells bourbony and lemony and a little like tea. Tastes earthy. A little watery and dry.

750 mL bottle shared at the 20th Richmond Gathering by someone who attended the 19th Richmond Gathering. Pours a dark caramel color with a head that quickly fades. Aroma of brown malts, caramel, mild fruits, mild wood. The taste is brown malts, spicy hops, peppery wood notes, maybe a little greep pepper. Thin-medium bodied. Nice.
