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.

77ships (9827) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2016
[750 ml. bottle split by two @ Boxing Day Tasting][Bottled 14.01.2016] Dark brown red ruby with a tanned head. Nose is pleasant woody vinegar, sour, red berries. Taste is good medium USA sour vinegar, puckering, acidic, woody, red berries, balsamic vinegar, sour berries,... Vaguely almost watery, lacks some body but otherwise a very nice puckering woody vinegar USA sour with the regular Jester King sour profile. A nice one especially a few very disappointing Jester King beers.

McWorta (1627) - LUXEMBOURG - AUG 27, 2016
Amber light hazy with a small off white head. Aromas of overripe fruit, some light bready malts and woody notes. Fine carbonation, light texture and a medium body. Offers a light sweetness with a lovely structured acidity. Short light juicy finish.

Alengrin (5369) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2016
Bottle at Uncle Babe’s in Ghent. Jester King’s take on classic Flemish red. Thick, dense, frothy, lacing, pale greyish white head, very dark chestnut brown colour with mahogany hue. Aroma of passion fruit, old hazelnut shells, some caramel, sherry vinegar, balsamico, wet wood or even a hint of old furniture, redcurrant, dry red wine. Vividly fruity onset, redcurrant, passion fruit and unripe blue plum accents, medium carbo, lean mouthfeel, bit vinous, supple middle with nutty maltiness and a caramelly hint through which a drying fruit tartness and eventually drying wood tannins run, bit wineish and sherryish finish with a powdery, bready yeast accent in the end as well as a very light toastedness and persisting drying sourness. Perhaps a tad too sour like many American interpretations of the style, but in this case well backed with a rounded maltiness, making this very accomplished at what it intends to be. Lovely oud bruin!

3.6
Leighton (21239) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2016
Draft at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014. Pours clear amber with a foamy, white head. Moderately funky and sweaty, with leathery berry character. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly tannic on the finish, with more aged, leathery berries, sturdy funk. Good one.
