One of Bam's brown eyes is, in fact, black. When mischief reigns supreme, it positively glows. Dedicated to the dark side; smooth, dark, incredibly delicious as only a Jack Russell with bat wings can be.

25.4oz bottle, Batch 920 Bottled 10-18-2011, so 3.25+ years ago. Nose is lightly sweet but quite tart with lactic, lots of floral and lightly lavender tones. Pours deep amber-ruby with a large rocky tan head. Taste is sweet and tart but not particularly sour, all kinds of dry Brett scratchiness, some earth and black pepper, old leafy greens that have faded; body thinned out significantly (actually quite dry from the attenuation perspective), need to get some wheat and oats into this jawn. Touch dust, hay, wood but not roast at all at this point,.not getting any "noir" character to distinguish this from a generic, accidentally soured saison. Will happily seek a fresh bottle, but for now this stands as a misstep from JP.

imdownthepub (11664) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Bottled, sampled at The Cotteridge Wines Convention, supplied by mR_fr0g many thanks. Hazy to cloudy amber with slight head. I had a sour sweetcorn note from this, if that is possible, some sourish fruit. A heavy beer for a saison in my eyes. Not really sure about it.

Bottle share. Cotteridge Beano. Hazy brown. Light, sour fruit. Taste is much the same. Too much fizz. Dry finish.

unclemike (2604) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Poured a red/chestnut color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark fruits, cocoa, light wild yeast, and coriander. Taste of light roast, dark fruits, toffee, brett, with some leather, and a lightly sour finish I gotta get more of this

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle: Murky copper with dark brown towards the center. Extremely fluffy beige head; cloud-like & lasting forever. A touch of fruitiness to the nose with a backdrop of funk, old cork, & barnyard hay. Some apples, maybe a little red grape. Funk grows stronger with time. Sourness up front in the flavor but it mellows out very quickly then sweeps into a strong funkiness. Light berries, a touch of peach. Huge musty, funky, corky tones... Hay, mildew-y wood, & old cheese rind. The funk dominates the latter 80% of the brew with an extremely dry finish full of old driftwood, barnyard floor, & cheese. Not a bad brew but probably one of my least favorite from JP. Just doesn’t have the lovely balance they usually exhibit. A little too over the top with the dryness & funk.

Had a 2007 bottle, aged nearly 7 years thanks to Jeff. More acidic up front but still tons of that woody, cotton-like funk. It was probably the driest beer I’ve ever had. Finished like antimatter sucking the protons from your mouth. Estimated FG of 0.996 holy shit. Probably enjoyed this aged bottle better than fresh, but this is still a weaker link in JP’s portfolio.

Pours medium dark brown with a lot of persistent off white head. Aroma is funky, sour, rotten hay. Taste is pleasantly musty, sour wheat, acidic. Very carbonated, effervescent mouthfeel. Not overly "dark" but a good farmhouse style ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
