COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Barrel-Aged Sour Brown Ale. In Britain, what started out as young or “mild” dark ale was once aged in oak barrels to make something that was likely similar to sour brown ales of East Flanders. Using a similar base recipe to Commercial Suicide Dark Mild, Ol’ Oi! is Jester King’s tribute to that tradition.

brokensail (12915) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Bottle @ RBSG 2015. Hazed amber colored beer with some off-white foam. Aromas of charred oak, grape skin, and some red wine vinegar. Has a bit of berry and lemon peel, maybe some grass, mushroom, and caramel. Pretty interesting. There’s a mild sweetness on the tongue, but quickly overcome by the sourness of lemon and some acetic qualities. Moderate fruitiness, tannic and oaky finish, and some mild funk. Pretty nicely done.

JStax (3680) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2015
750 ml bottle thanks to errl. The beer is a dark brown with a beige head that dissipates quickly. The aroma has tart, dark fruits and light woody notes. Wine like characteristics as well. The taste is juicy sourness and strong acidity. Medium body and medium to high carbonation.

750mL bottle, pours a deep dark amber brown with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out tart dark fruits, wood, and vinegar. Flavour is pretty much identical, with vinegar, wood, medium tartness and alcohol. Not terrible complex but cohesive an nice to sip. Solid.

Bacterial (2164) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 4, 2015
Hazy light brown pour with no head. Slightly acetic nose. Tastes like a Flanders red / old school English ale combo. Good.

Mr_Abner (158) - Michigan, USA - APR 29, 2015
Bottle. Pours brown with a ruby tint, soft white head. Smells like a brown ale that has been soured (surprise!). The sourness is most apparent, though there is an unmistakeable brown ale aroma underneath. Tastes similar. Most noticeable is its medium tartness. Medium bodied, average carbonation, tart finish.

750ml bottle pours out a muddy brown topped with a sand head. Nose is sour tart funk some fruit and barrel notes. Taste is more of the funk tart and a very nice end.
