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 at home with friends. Pour is Murky brown with a small tan head and good lacing. Caramel, doughy, bready, red wine vinegar, some oak, pepper, and toffee in the aroma. Taste is vinegar, some spice, toffee, brown sugar, caramel, oaky, and green apples with a big sour finish. Medium body with high carboantion. Not bad.

Bottle @ Steve_0’s house. Thanks! Pours a pretty clear, brown appearance with a brown head. Oak, tannins, red grapes, leather, acetic acid, and herbs in the nose. Medium full body. Not overly sour - more like a pucker at the back of the throat. Lots of leather and wood. Kind of a fun sour brown that isn’t too overly aggressive. Easier to drink than most in the style.

This poured a ruby red color with a white head. Aroma of view egar, acetic acid, dark fruits. Similar, not really any cheesy character or apple I like from this style. Don’t get the jester king hype.

I usually completely hate this style but it was drinkable to me. Pours a cloudy dark brown color with a white head. Aromas of tart cherry, oak, light vinegar. Taste is medium high sourness. Really prickly carbonation.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle:   Deep brown sugar, very dark, some dark ruby notes, moderate to large foamy beige head, nice lacing.   Nice sour nose, fruity, cherries, and a bit of woodiness.   Moderate to assertive sourness up front, dry, with some of that fruitiness and woodiness bringing up the backside.   Nothing out of the ordinary, but seems solid.   Better than a lot of Belgian examples in fact.   Sweetness comes up on the backside.   Dry and sour up front.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Very easy to drink, doesn’t make me over salivate.   Enjoyable even if a bit of a mild example.   Thanks Bill!

McNeillR (1897) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 12, 2015
Murky red, bright and wholesome looking with a decent contrasting off white ringed head. Nose is brassy funk (so much brass this afternoon), vibrant cherry and twiggy funk. Rich tang throughout, initial taste is hints of taught berry and floundering tartness but a wee boost of sweetness. Solid carbonation and a decent peel of mouthfeel. Finishes keen tartness, more cherry and berry buzz and a long reaching brassy tart linger.
