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.

Ungstrup (32862) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 15, 2016
An unclear amber beer with a thin head. The aroma has notes of brettanomyces, malt, and over ripe fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of lemons, brettanomyces, wood, and brown sugar, leading to a dry finish.

markducommun (801) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2016
Darker mahogany, light tan head. Brown sugar, a bit of sweaty socks. Funky. Tangy sour, sweeter. A bit oily, medium body, not a ton of carbonation. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mathieuc (2949) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2016
Pours a nice red with a high offwhite head that leaves superior lacing. Nose is of fruits and light oxidation (nuts). Taste is of grapes, roasted cereals and moderately acidic. Vinous with a medium body and moderate carbonation. Good but not the best sour red or even Jester King out there for that matter. Lacking a bit of wow.

tom10101 (4788) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2016
Bottle (750 ml) at tasting. Shared by mathieuc, thanks! Slightly hazy amber with a medium tan head leaving good lacing. Aroma is of caramel, mild spiciness, oak, berries and nutty notes. Taste is moderately sour and a bit vinegary with mild to moderate spiciness, berries, oak spiciness and earthy notes. Medium body. Modate carbonation. Mildly spicy finish. A decent Sour Brown example, but nothing really stands out. It’s a bit too acetic to be enjoyable in large gulp. Complexity level is moderate. Ok.
