Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Got in a trade with cyde. 750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass; Blend 2, bottled 10/9/2013. Pours slightly hazy deep reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of sour cherry, green apple, raisin, plum, red wine, toast, caramel, chocolate, brown bread, oak, vinegar, hay, straw, grass, light leather, musty funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, dark malt, and oak barrel notes; with good strength. Taste of big sour cherry, green apple, raisin, plum, red wine, caramel, toast, chocolate, brown bread, oak, vinegar, hay, straw, grass, light leather, musty funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. God amount of acidic tartness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of sour cherry, green apple, raisin, plum, red wine, caramel, toast, brown bread, oak, light leather, musty funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Outstanding complexity and balance of fruity/funky/acidix yeast, dark malt, and oak barrel flavors; with a great malt/acidity balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately acidic, and fairly creamy mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome sour brown ale! All around great complexity and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, dark malt, and oak barrel flavors; and very smooth to sip on with the balanced acidity. A highly enjoyable offering.
