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.

Bottle, pours brown with thin off-white head. Aromas and flavor of sour fruit, heavy malt, caramel, Gouda, light vinegar, and sour apple candy. Finish on this is fast and forgettable. Didn’t have more than a couple ounces of this before moving on to a better beer. Cheers.

Sample at First Sunday, thanks west. A littels weet and nutty. Medium on the my unscientific sour scale. Finish is lots of red fruit, cherry, plum. A little thin and light on the finish though although the barrel does add a little more body to the overall

1st Sunday share from a recent trade. Damn wchesser you out did yourself on this one. Brown murky pour. Not overly sour, dark maltiness, prominent barrel characteristics that are really nice, faint bourbon, more vanilla, ripe berries. Really good stuff.
