This is the barrel aged cask conditioned sour version of Jester King’s Commercial Suicide, their low gravity English mild which I loved on its own right. But something about souring it made it just utterly fantastic in so many different, wonderful ways. High praise, and well-deserved.

This pours a dark ruby-brown with thin bubbles and an apparent low carbonation. Great aroma, very tart and bold, with an obvious comparison to balsamic vinegar that doesn’t do it justice. Tastes mouthpuckeringly tart, like sour cherries or blackberries, and just incredibly so. More tartness than a hoppy bitterness, which is in its own way refreshing. The souring process brought something to this beer which made it distinctive and in a class all its own. This is wonderful! I loved every sip and wish I could have had more.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Dark mahogany color. Retains thin head for awhile. Vigorous carbonation.

S: Sweet malt with woody notes.

T: Lots of complexity and great balance of flavors. Malty sweet with a reserved, pitch-perfect woodiness. Nutty flavors with a dryness that rounds everything out. Great stuff.

M: Tremendous creaminess for the style. Carbonation keeps working throughout. Easy drinking, but repeatedly draws you back in for more.

O: This is one of the best of JK's regular line up so far. It packs in a lot of complexity for a low-abv beer. Given its price, it makes for an excellent semi-regular treat throughout the year. Highly sessionable, but with so much complexity, makes this beer drinkable year-round and any day of the week.

Got in a trade with cyde. 750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy deep ruby red color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, pear, apple, raisin, chocolate, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, toffee, oak, light vanilla, herbal, floral, pepper, clove, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity and balance of malt, fruity/spicy yeast, and oak notes; and great strength. Taste of big caramel, pear, apple, raisin, chocolate, toast, brown bread, toffee, nuttiness, pepper, clove, oak, light vanilla, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, light fruits, chocolate, toast, brown bread, toffee, oak, light vanilla, clove, pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Outstanding robustness, complexity, and balance of malt, oak, and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; with a great malt/yeast spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a slightly creamy, smooth, and crisp mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 3.5%. Overall this is an incredible farmhouse mild ale! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of malt, yeast, and oak flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

2012 Bottle
served in a New Belgium tulip

A: Very dark reddish brown with a thin head and lots of small bubbles

S: Strong malt character smell with a slight nuttiness and bitterness very dark ESB type of smell

T: Very bright taste with a nut flavor and malt character. Nice traditional english flavor with some oak characters. Though the oak flavor is not over powering.

M: Very bright nice beer to drink, smooth and enjoyable

O: I really enjoyed this beer, the first sour I ever had was a sour version of this beer, I loved it and I like this version almost as much. Great beer, I typically dont love non sour jester king beers but this one is great! I would certainly buy more, especially at this price point. Very drinkable...

Poured into my new Jester King goblet, which is the same glass as my Founders Better Half goblet, yet more aesthetically pleasing.

A - It's warm and dark, yet thin and opaque. There's a strong amount of carbonation with a tan/mushroom-colored head. Good amount of head retention and nice lacing.

S - Big malts...an English bitter for sure. As it warmed, it got more of an oak presence.

T - Lovely: chocolate, oak, charcoal, dried dark fruit... Yeast and some sweet nuttiness followed by a faint sour quality. There is a lot going on, but it is highly restrained and subtle at the same time. I really appreciate the subtle qualities being presented. This could have easily been overkill...

M - It remindes me of the appearance: dark, dry, and thin... That is the only downside for me: too thin and slightly too dry. The dryness brings out more of the smoky quality, or is it vice versa?

O - This is a delishious session... It really grew on me the more I drank it. I'm glad we occasionally get jester king brews brought to us.

750 mL bottle poured into a nonic pint glass at cellar-fridge temperature.

L – Brown color with a humungous 5-finger frothy, foamy, cream-colored head. Amazing retention but only patches of lacing.

S – Lots of malty aromas with caramel, nutty, and toasted notes, along with cloves from the farmhouse yeast, a hint of figs, and a noticeable but pleasant amount of woody oak.

T – It starts off with toasted, nutty malts and spicy cloves and gradually progresses to a sweeter malty presence with caramel and juicy fig notes. Toward the finish, the dry, woody oak makes an appearance. The taste is definitely mild and all the right flavors are here.

F – Light-to-medium-bodied with good carbonation, a creamy and mouth-coating feel, and a moderately sweet and dry finish. Oaky dryness lingers for a bit.

O – This is a nice English mild. All of the right aromas and flavors are there, and the mouthfeel is spot on for a sessionable mild. I don’t really get the low score here. Does it have as much flavor as a DIPA or sour or pack as much of a punch as a barleywine or RIS? Of course not. Is it supposed to? Absolutely not. This beer is meant to be mild (it’s in the name after all) and to be drunk in large quantities without putting you on your ass. This beer fulfills both of those requirements and is tasty at that. Nice beer from Jester King.

Refrigerated longer than the recommended 24 hours, and served in a tulip glass around 45 º and allowed to warm up.

Tawny light brown, glinting orange in the light saturated colors with minimal lace but an ample head of foam the color of manila folders. Second pour the retention is better, it lasts a good 5 minutes.

Pleasant aromas of toasted nutty malts, and dry american oak. Something slightly yeasty but nondescript, surfacing after the dominant oak.

Light bodied, completely to style in this case, with plenty of lasting oak flavors. Subtlety is the name of the game. Dry and woody, flavorful with some flashes of green hop traces but minimal bitterness. Very smooth and refined. A very unique rendition of a Mild Ale, and something I wish was on cask locally. Hope someone out there can pull strings to make it happen!

A - Poured from bottle to snifter. Allowed the bottle to stand for a bit, bringing it to a nice pouring temp at approximately 40 degrees. The body is a rich bronze with minimal CO2 activity (expected from s bottle-conditioned ale). Rocky beige head that leaves negligible trace.

S - Subtlety moves the nose. It's brightness is present, but not overly assertive. Hops polish off the scent, nothing ever even near overbearing. The oak hits the nostrils, it's presents felt more than smelt.

T - Again, the taste is delicate, but distinct. Complex, but not confusing. The malt and hops are very well-balanced, neither ever overbearing each other or creating nuances. The finish dries very well, presenting an oaky aftertaste, comparable to finishing a clove cigarette.

MF - As much as one can expect with a mild ale. Not too cumbersome on the palate, which I would expect with such a low booze brew.

O - The skill that reveals itself in pretty much every aspect of enjoying this beer proves that Jeff Stuffings' is a master of the craft; an artist delving into new grounds. Although Milds are not my favorite, I can honestly say that this recipe would rank at the top of those seeking such a sessionable beer. Bravo.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a pint/tulip glass, Oaked farmhouse version, no bottle date. This pours a dark brown, mahoganyish color with a three finger tan head which quickly loses half its size then remains as a a thin film. The smells are of a very strong malty type, a little nuttiness, caramel, a little oak but not as prominent as the others. The feel is surprising thicker than I was expecting, mid to thick. The taste is pretty good, full flavored for a 3.5% abv beer, the taste is like the smell a little nutty flavor, loads of malts, caramel and a hint of vanilla.

750 ml bottle. Served in a tulip-like glass, the beer pours a reddish/brown color with an inch and a half light tan head that stayed around for a while. There's also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like bready and caramel malt, chocolate, oak, dark fruit (cherries), and some spice. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's the addition of some nuts, vanilla and dark bread. Also, the chocolate is stronger in the taste than it is compared to the aroma. I thought the taste of this brew got better the longer it warmed up. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's easy to drink and is well carbonated. This is the 2nd Jester King brew I've tried, and I've liked them both so far. I'd like to try this one again in the future. $7.99 a bottle.

A ~ Dark Auburn w/ very delicate carb & splotches of lace.

S ~ Caramel malt, bread crust, mild cocoa...faint vanilla/oak notes.

T ~ Toasted bread..light roast character..Farmhouse yeast really ties
everything together & adds a nice ester component to the flavor

M ~ Dry & Toasty..Very mild funk. Goes down very easily.

D ~ Super drinkable, & just as good if not better than the first time I had it.
I love seeing beers that show how flavor can be imparted w/out increasing the ABV tenfold. Thanks brad.

Appearance is dark brown with a off white almost tan head.
Aroma is initially oaky and caramel and Munich notes.
Taste is woody and winey and a bit of smoke and some strange phenols from the yeast but its not off putting in any way. A little thin but that was to be expected. Nice session beer that I'm glad I bought. Leaves you thinking but gives you room to move around and drink the whole bottle. Valient effort. Don't understand the low scores(

750ml bottle, Fall '12
Lost Abbey tulip

A: Pours a cloudy hazy reddish hued brown. About a half finger of off white or light tan head. Good carbonation. Tiny bubbles.

S: On the nose, getting nuttiness. Caramel. Slight woody vanilla hints. Not getting much of the farmhouse yeast? Maybe some spice notes. Smells like a nice bitter.

T: Definitely pulling those traditional English bitter or mild notes. Getting some light caramel like flavors. Some nuttiness. In the mid palate you do taste that slight twang of the yeast strain. A really dry finish, with lingering flavors of those oak spirals.

M: It's light leading to medium. Heavily carbonated. Very easy drinking.

A: Beer pours a dark brown body with a creamy tan head. The head leaves a tiny bit of lacing on the glass as it fades.

S: The smell sort of reminds me a weaker Tumbler. It has a bit of nuttiness and some chocolate.

T: Like the smell, I get a good amount of nuttiness, a faint bit of cocoa and a tiny bit of sweet malt.

M: This beer is beyond smooth. There is a good amount of creaminess and has a tiny bit of tingle down my throat.

O: This reminds me a lot of Sierra Nevada Tumbler. It is pretty tasty and is easy to drink. This makes for a perfect low alcohol beer for the winter.

Bottle I brought to share at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours a murky brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, and some roasted nut aromas. Taste is much the same with nutty flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is flavorful and easy to drink for the ABV.

Consumed 6/9/13

Split with Goblinmunkey7

Appearance: Unexpectedly, interestingly dark - a solid brown from a distance, some lighter tones when held up to the light - some clarity - pours with a big, creamy, beige head - keeps a borderline solid cap, leaves some decent streaks of lacing

Smell: Remarkably strange, even considering how weird this beer should be - some serious, ripe oak - like, fresh wood (not old barrels) - some strange saison notes - lightly floral - lightly tart and lightly acidic - some dark malts - very mild overall (intentional)

Taste: Weird and flavorful - loads of fresh oak - some dark malts, baker's chocolate - lightly tart with some yeasty funk, a touch sour - earthy, lightly grassy - mild but very flavorful considering the super-low ABV

Mouthfeel: Light, very drinkable, nicely carbonated

Overall: Clearly not worth drinking because it has less alcohol than Bud Light

This is a weird beer. But I like it. The oak is very interesting. And there is a lot of flavor in this beer, especially considering how mild it is. Definitely worth a try.

A - Three fingers worth of mostly even lush whipped light khaki colored head with a bit of a rocky top... Rock solid retention... Much darker than expected... It's a deep rich dark brown... Though a wee bit of lit still leaks in around the edges... A few stray carbonation streaks and bubbles can be seen towards to the top of the glass... The proceed at a moderate to slightly quick pace...

S - Interesting aroma... Starts with a subtle sweetness... Caramel... Brown sugar... It is quickly complimented by a strong allusion of wood and oak... The competing aromas then continue to play off one another with the woody oakness coming out on top by the slightest of margins... Rather unique...

T - In terms of aroma, the oak won by a nose (pun intended)... However, in terms of palate, the oak wins by miles... The oak dominates at the beginning, in the middle and at the end with little else shining through... There are some light bready notes and perhaps just a kiss of brown sugar that lingers beneath the surface... The oak further intensifies on the finish and lingers...

M - On the lighter side of medium bodied... Lush... Sleek... Light carbonation... The finish has a touch of both chalkiness and dryness...

D - Loaded with flavor and character, especially given the modest 3.5% ABV... The oak isn't subtle by any means and dominates the beer... It's not a bad thing, but it seems to make this offering a bit one dimensional... A tasty and interesting interruption of the session beer genre, though I'm not sure it's something I would revisit with regularity...

Reviewed on 7/19/13 Bomber in snifter

A - Pours a dark brown with some red highlights. Has a two finger light tan head that dissipates quickly but a thin cap holds out.

S - Sweet malts and caramel upfront. Dark fruits, maybe some cherry? Notes of spice too.

T - Well I didn't smell any oak but its very prevalent in the flavor. Oak, vanilla, and malt dominate. Notes of caramel and molasses. Finishes dry. Flavors started to wear on me as the beer warmed

M - Very light body and high carbonation. Finishes dry, very drinkable.

O - Interesting and tasty beer. Flavors were subtle but enjoyable and beer is endlessly drinkable. I ended up knocking a few points off on it due to the flavors starting to wear on me as the bear warmed but other than that enjoyable and very different.

Jester King Brewery - Commercial Suicide Oaked Farmhouse Mild, poured into a Fiddlehead snifter.

Look - Pours dark brown-black with see through around the edges and a big foamy head that runs away fast. Sticky lacing here and there.

Smell - Gently roasted Munich barley with quite a yeasty aftereffect. Oak notes.

Taste - Malty and syrupy, dark and roasted. Oak for sure here. Unfortunately the taste almost knocks this brew flat on its ass.

Mouthfeel - Slighty sticky roasted feel. Light to medium bodied. Very drinkable. Oak rests on the palate and mostly coats the mouth for sure.

Overall - Jester King has a knack for it and while this one isn't perfect, it is still a good brew. Milds are best enjoyed fresh off the tap, if I'm ever in the area I'll have to stop by and try it again.

Served from bottle into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass. Poured a massively dark brown with a two finger light tan head that subsided to one finger very slowly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, bread, fruit, wood, and subtle spices. The flavor was of sweet malt, bread, fruit, spice, dark chocolate, and subtle wood. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was apretty decent brew. I went into this one truthfully expecting to find something awesome in this one. What I found however didn't really jump out at me like I would have hoped. There was a nice bit of things going on in this one which was nice to find. Really wish there would have been a bit of dark fruit going on in this one to balance it out some. But hey, you can't win them all. Definitely worth your time if you get the chance.

Thanks to angrybabboon for splitting the bottle.

Appearance: Hazed brown. Some dark red and lighter browns at the edges when held to direct light. Head is a dirty off-white. Big carbonation on the pour. Head drops to a thin cap with a small smooth collar.

Smell: Light bready malts. A hint of chocolate malt. Some underlying funk. A touch of cherry. Oak and slight fruitiness. Musty hay and something almost like rocks. Minerals with some herbal elements. Very mild.

Taste: Clean oak and a very faint tart cherry. Mostly oak. Women slight funky elements. Herbal with a powdery yeast. Some grass and damp hay. Starts a bit more tart than it actually is. Mellows out through the sip. Did I mention oak? Malted seltzer water. Vague spicy and mineral element. Hits similar to an English mild.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light body with an effervescent moderate to high carbonation. A bit dry to start, but finishes super clean and mellow.

Overall: Commercial success.

Not the most interesting beer out there, but it's novel and tasty for what it is. Light and easy drinking but carries enough flavor to keep me sipping. A good, if not great bottle.
