COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Defined as "serving no practical purpose", the recipe for Otiose was developed during a rare break in the brewing schedule; a recipe we came up with to satisfy our own desires and nothing more. The result is a sour brown ale aged in oak barrels to which we added guava. Riddled with tropical notes which are balanced by it’s malty backbone, Otiose is a rich and decadent sour ale. 8.2%, Cellerable for up to 3 years.

brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Pours a dark amber color with an off-white head. The guava comes through a bit too aggressively for my liking. It gives off an almost perfume quality to the nose. Tart vinegar and a mild malt and fruit sweetness. The perfume is even more...robust on the palate and is quite off-putting to me. A nice tartness along with the fruit notes and a touch of leather. Maybe some kiwi and passion fruit going on in there.

Scopey (15666) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2012

The nose is red fruit, redcurrant, cherry, raspberry, guava, acetic, zesty grapefruit and wood. The taste is sour red fruit, guava, redcurrant, raspberry, blackcurrant jam, grapefruit, wood, light spice, Granny Smith apple and light acetic notes with a tart finish. Medium body and fine prickly carbonation. Smooth, sour and pretty tasty. Good stuff!
