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.

On tap at the Draught House 43rd Anniversary Party. This is the regular Commercial Suicide aged in wine barrels with the addition of wild yeast and bacteria. It is intentionally soured.

The beer pours a hazy brown color with no head.The beer appears to be completely flat. The aroma is very nice. I get a lot of tart cherries, as well as some oak, vanilla and a little bit of toasted malt. One thing is certain, this is a completely different animal than the other versions of this base beer.

The flavor is very tart. I get a lot of sour cherries, as well as some light funk and some tart, red wine notes. There is also a nice oak and vanilla component and a little bit of malt. The sourness is about medium and makes the beer very enjoyable and very easy to drink.

Medium mouthfeel and no carbonation. My only complaint is that I wish the beer was carbonated. Other than that, it was outstanding.

A- Half-finger head, thin and airy. Dark brown almost black in color. Lace remains about the glass. Steady carbonation is evident.

S- Sourness, funk, peaches, dark chocolate.

T- Still funky with a tart fruit flavor, some dark malt and hints of grapefruit peel

M- Sour but still has a thick malt body. Sort of creamy, but also very acidic.

Overall, not bad but too heavy on the sour without enough of a malt profile or flavor.
