COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2008
750ml Bottle: Aroma of yeast, spices, dark fruit, malts, and lactic acid. Poured brown/cola in color with a large, foamy, rocky, light brown head that lasted throughout. Sparkling. Many large particles. Flavor is tart. Tastes of spices, tart cherries, dish soap, yeast, and funk. Pretty gross flavor. Medium body. Average texture. Lively carbonation. Yeasty funk finish.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - APR 5, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber with a two finger lasting light tan head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of JP funk, sour dark fruit, tart cherries, and green apples. Taste is yeast spice, tart cherries, citrus, spicy hops, and a hint of sweet malt in the finish. Medium mouthfeel with a moderate amount of carbonation, mild to moderate bitterness, and a dry moderately tart finish. Very well balanced and very good.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 4, 2008
Clear dark red, creamy stable tan head. Sour funky barnyard aroma with tart apple and brown sugar. Sour and quenching with perfect residual sugar and great body for the size. Low bitterness. Has some spicy hop notes and mild earthiness with plum. This would be an excellent every day table beer. Very well conceived.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2008
Modest foamy gray-tan head and deep ruddy-bronze body. Earthy aroma of sour plums, currants, brown sugar and cocoa. Malty silhouette, but very well-attenuated with medium acidity and some roasted fruit and wild microbial flavors. This is entirely unique. Interesting, but not as mouth-watering and enthralling as many other JP beers.

cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 31, 2008
Bottle. Pours a brownish purple with a huge offwhite head. Gorgeous. Smells of yeast, cherries, tart apples, a little malt sweetness with maybe a hint of roast. Tastes of cherry stone, apple skins, and with a subdued sourness and tartness, and little spicy yeast kick. Light mouthfeel and very dry finish. Another wonderful JP offering. Just behind regular Bam, but oh so good. I hope they are able to start putting out 12ozes again, as this was a wonderful 6pack to enjoy, though a 750 certainly would be easy to drink by myself.

Hudspart (538) - Byron Center, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Bottle: Very good. Aroma of yeast and cherries. Flavor same as aroma. Small head and dark amber color. Very good.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2008
Unusually. Seriously funky nose. Very dark, foamy tan head. What is this? A black lambic? A black saison? Mild sweet fruit, like strawberry juice, a baby Flemish sour or a baby Rodenbach Grand Cru? Hints of sweet cocoa, danced on by lactic acid? Not much intensity. A bonus point for this much flavor in a beer under 5%, but a minus for the absurd price.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Pours blackish-purple with thick white head... very attractive. Pungent, spicy aroma of berries, cloves, sour apple, citrus, yeast, assorted dark fruit. Flavor is a letdown, however. Some sourness, some oak, some musty yeast, and some out-of-place lactose-water blandness. Didnít have real high expectations for this one, and it got my hopes up with its great aroma and wonderful appearance. Alas, the flavor extremely meek.

dchmela (3003) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2008
750 ml Bottle courtesy myself. Wanted to share it, but had no takers. Their loss. Pours blackish red with a thick yeasty white head. Yeasty, sour, fruit aroma. Apple sour, citrus, yeast, malt taste with a nice medium body. Very tasty and the low abv made it easy to drink the whole bottle.

750ml bottle thanks to tytoanderso. Pours a hazy amber with a creamy off-white head that laces down in patches. Sour nose. Strong notes of oak, yeast, apples, barnyard, and cheese. I could sniff this for a while. Sweet and tart flavors start with an earthy, woody, leathery note. Rotten apples and browning fruit follow, but it all disappears to quick to leave a watery earthy note that lingers on the back of my tongue. Overall the flavors come off as a little watery and Iím wondering why JP beers seem to be a little less flavorful lately. I hope these yeasts havenít been overused because I love this strain of brett and Iíll always be happy to take another version of Bam.
