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.

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.

DrunkSanta410 (490) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 4, 2015
Tap at brewery. Pours murky, doo doo brown. Aroma is funky, dark dried fruit, a bit of cocoa, and vinegar. Nuanced. Taste is lightly tart, dark dried fruits, a bit of oak and vanilla. A bit of vinegar, but it’s well integrated. Medium body, medium carbonation. Nicely done.

tectactoe (2978) - Michigan, USA - APR 2, 2015
UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Bottle: Really deep chestnut brown color, opaque except for the very top sliver. Foamy, soapy beige head. Aroma loaded with sour bugs, lemon, tart cherry, woody tannins, yogurty lacto, mild acetic acid, faint perfume. Nice tart flavor; cherry skin, lemon, perfume, under-ripe prune, a touch of vinous booziness, lots of oak in the finish with some acidity that dries things up & puckers the gums a bit. Dry body, medium mouth feel. Nice.

JBPortland (1061) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 3, 2015
750ml bottle pours dark brown with light ruby edges and a big finger of head. Nose has some tart nutty cola and dark cherry with dried fruit and a hint of oaky funk. Taste has pretty well balanced lacto tartness, sweet and sour flanders-esque dark cherry fruit, dr pepper, a bit of peach. Finishes with some light sweetness, tart dark dried berries and cola, hinf of grape and bread, soft oak. Good, definite improvement on the base beer.
