I recently bought this new batch of Commercial Suicide at Jester King three weeks ago and I drank it last night. It is a Mild Farmhouse Ale based on the traditional English Mild Dark Ale. It is fermented entirely in French oak foudres.

(L) It has a very dark almost black hue and very thin head that dissipated quickly.

(A) The aroma was oak and dark fruit.

(T) It was malty with a flavor of oak, raisins, citrus, very tart/sour, slight sweetness, no bitterness.

(F) Carbonated, dry, light and crisp.

In general I do not tend to like their very mild (and low alcohol) beers too much but this one was pretty good.

A: Pours a chocolate brown/ruby red color. A pathetic bubbly white head forms and vanishes in a second with no lace. From the look, there seems to be almost no carbonation to this at all.
S: Mild oak, smoke, and vanilla in the nose. Followed by an astringent, almost metallic aroma. A strange acidic twang.
T: Ug, no better here. Very mild oak and vanilla flavors. Burnt toast. Astringent with a metallic tiny flavor. Again, a strange acidity. Not good.
M/D: To say this is light is generous. So paper thin, and hardly any carbonation here. Not something I care to come back to or finish.

After a very surprising beer in RU-55, I follow it up with this. I remember loving this beer when it was not "farmhouse." The original version was great, especially on cask. This is a thin, unappealing beer that has no business in the English mild or farmhouse styles. A complete mess.

If I lowered my rating to closer to the current average, what contribution have I made?

Justify rating with a review? I didn't like it very much.

A - Deep brown, certainly cannot see through. about 2 inches of white/ light brown head. head faded within a few minutes.

S - smoked porter?

T - very light. mild. smoked flavor.

M - watery. low viscosity

O - Its a replacement for water. Not suggesting this is anything close to BMC. Most likely won't ever purchase again. $8 smoked water? na....
