look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a belgian-style stemmed glass. No bottling date on bottle.

Appearance: Pours a translucent dark brown/raisin color and leaves a couple fingers of fluffy off-white head.

Smell: Figs, raisins, light grassy funk, light cherry, tree bark, mild oak.

Taste: Oak, tobacco, raisins, figs, nuttiness, light maple, light molasses, malts.

Mouth-feel: Very light body with a medium carbonation. Very smooth finish. Carbonation is a bit odd, it gives the impression of being artificially carbonated even though it is my understanding that it is not.

Overall: An interesting brew for sure. Extremely light body, and while the flavors are all fairly light, it has a pretty complex flavor profile. Plenty of woodiness and nuttiness along with some mild funk. Interesting, but not quite to my tastes - the tobacco/woody elements were not altogether pleasant for me. Not bad though.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Poured into a perfect pint. This one isn't a gusher like the last JK I opened, but it is overcarbed.

2.75 A: Fairly clear deep amber color. Four plus fingers of foamy tan head. Retention is poor and no lacing is left.

2.75 S: Nose on this isn't really strong, but I guess that's what I was expecting. However, it also isn't very interesting. The main focus is a dry woodiness with herbal notes. It's not bad, just kinda boring.

2.75 T: Taste is also lackluster. I'm not saying this because it is 3.5%, I'm saying that because it can't hold up with any of the other session beers I've had. Again dry woodiness, a few layers of herbalness and not much else. Maybe a touch of toastiness.

3.25 M: Lighter body. Good moderate carbonation despite the appearance. Lightly creamy and smooth.

3.0 D: It's okay, but it's boring, even for a session beer.

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.
