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.

Close your eyes and smell this one...smoked chocolate cherry blossom effervescence. Deep honeycomb brown and carbonated...light and smoky taste...unusual but delicious. Like eating bonbons in the barn...nestled in a pile of hay...watching the bible salesman approaching the house door and knowing no one is home to answer his call. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Got in a trade with cyde. 750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy deep ruby red color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, pear, apple, raisin, chocolate, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, toffee, oak, light vanilla, herbal, floral, pepper, clove, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity and balance of malt, fruity/spicy yeast, and oak notes; and great strength. Taste of big caramel, pear, apple, raisin, chocolate, toast, brown bread, toffee, nuttiness, pepper, clove, oak, light vanilla, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, light fruits, chocolate, toast, brown bread, toffee, oak, light vanilla, clove, pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Outstanding robustness, complexity, and balance of malt, oak, and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; with a great malt/yeast spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a slightly creamy, smooth, and crisp mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 3.5%. Overall this is an incredible farmhouse mild ale! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of malt, yeast, and oak flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

Dark pour with a tan head. Aroma is roasted nuts, oak, caramel. Balanced taste with some sourness. Great flavors of chocolate and nut, and a slight smokiness.

drpimento (3175) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Served with nice, tan head that settled after a bit and no lace. Color is clear, I think, and a dark, rich mahoganey.Aroma is malt, cocoa, vanilla, yeast. Flavorís like nose plus a bit of a tang. Body is a little thin with good carbonation. Finish is like flavor; thinness is a bit of a drag, otherwise, not bad.

750 ml bottle thanks to errl poured into a Jester King Chalice. Pours a darker ruby color with a large froth of beige, velvety foam. Pretty good retention. The aroma is very malt forward with some lighter esters, some grass, a bit of wood, and some notes of vanilla, which I presume is from the oak. The taste is mildly sweet with a drying, near herbal finish lingering on the tongue. Some nutty notes come out as the beer warms a bit. Definitely an interesting take on a Mild. Very enjoyable. Iíll have to pick up some more bottles of this next time I see them.

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. Thereís 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 thereís 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, itís easy to drink and is well carbonated. This is the 2nd Jester King brew Iíve tried, and Iíve liked them both so far. Iíd like to try this one again in the future. $7.99 a bottle.

Dark,appears to be clear with red hue.Some froth, quick sugary decending lace. Nice aroma of berries and coconut,chocolate and vanilla. Taste has mild chocolate, light toast,light sweet,some citrus mild tartness.Good body and good tasting for a 3.5%er. Could easily kill this tastey bomber but you can sip this one like a nice barleywine as well.

Draft... Pours dark brown with a short-lived, white head. The aroma is a malty menagerie of cocoa, roasted nuts, coconut and toasted oak. Light to medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The flavor delivers lots of cocoa and toasted nuts underscored by a pleasant tanginess. Finishes a hint chocolaty and lightly sweet.

Bottle. Pour is a deep, clear, reddish amber with a medium tab head. Aroma is lightly toasted malt, faint pumpkin pie spice, and light chocolate notes. Flavor is light coffee malt, faint raw grain, lightly spicy, and clean cocoa nibs in the finish. Also faintly earthy. Easy to drink with nice character. A little tartness shows though as it warms. Very nice.
