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.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2007
12oz bottle. Aroma: Lots of malt up front. Toasted bread, grainy malt, nuts. A whiff of oak and vanilla before the sour/funk come in. Lemon, green apple, dusty basement, and slight barnyard note. Appearance: Pours a deep and cloudy reddish brown. Off-white head was full and creamy with great retention. Great lacing. Flavor: Some lightly roasted maltiness upfront with flavors of bread and nuts. Sourness moves in fast, but isnít overwhelming. Lemon, apple, cherry, dusty, and slight sweaty funk. Getting some oak into the finish. Palate: Medium-light bodied and watery. Medium high carbonation. Overall: Slightly disappointing. Regular Bam is a favorite of mine, so I had high expectations. Thin body and a flavor that never really came together. Maybe some age will help.

shadey (1967) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 9, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2008 November 2007. 12 oz bottle consumed fresh. Pour is black with wisps of white and a ring of white cream. Aroma is sour up front, but I also smell some creamy doughy malt. Interesting. The flavor is tantalizing, sour tingly, kinda grassy? Weird, but not boring. This one I actually wish I had in a 750 - I need more time. 6/4/8/4/17

ADD RATING: First bottling (12oz) of this special beer. Pour is brownish black with a thin head of cream and lace. The aroma is really showing the bret sourness. Nothing too funky, just sour. The flavor is well-rounded; beginning slight sweet and malty, and finishing with the smooth sourness, almost like sour cherries. Very easy to drink. 7/4/8/4/18.

drewbeerme (3891) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2007
12/5/07, 12oz 2007 vintage, bottled a few short months ago. thanks to BlackForestCO for this. pours a dense auburn with off white creamy head. nose has some roasty, nutty, toasted grain, all laying on a bed of brett, cobwebs, and lemony hops. flavor is clearly reminisent of bam biere at first but it is not quite that crisp and this finishes with some toasted grain. flavor has some brett, oak, toasted grain, herbal hop notes with a dusty finish. a light mouth feel with lively carbonation making this is very refreshing. for me, it is an easy transition from bam biere.

BeerandBlues2 (10496) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 5, 2007
Bottle purchased at Liquor Max in Loveland, CO. Pours clear tawny with an average, fizzy, off-white head, mostly diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, straw), average hops (flowers, grass), average yeast (horse blanket, barnyard) with notes of green apple and cherry. Light bodied, thin texture, soft carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness and acidity, moderate bitterness.

PP Strong Ale Fest 07. 750ml from kp I believe. Pours brown copper with a thin tan head. Nose is very nice and sweet. Taste is sweet, ruddy, and a little thin, the nose was far better on this one for me.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Bottled. Beer is slightly cloudy, medium-dark warm caramel brown. Head is initially small, off white, fizzy; diminishes almost totally but hangs in there in the end.<P>The aroma is minor keyed; autumnal. Malty with light toasted grain, bread crusts, trace of roaste peanut; Light lemon-herbal hop; Yeasty with light notes of barnyard, basement; Moderate miscellaneous notes of tree sap, decaying leaves, trace of tart apple.<P>The flavor is spartan. Trace sweet, lightly bitter with a long, trace acidic/sour, lightly bitter finish.<P>The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.<P>Not sure where this little number fits in style-wise, but I like the moody, waning impression it imparts.

Ernest (6538) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (roasted/toasted grain/nuts), lightly yeasty (cobwebs, barnyard), with notes of tree bark, autumn leaves, minerals, hint of lemon zest. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Light body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Iím kinda surprised the average score is as high as it is; this is a lean little monkey with not a lot of the typical attractors. It reminds me of a much lighter, watery Black Ghost or something along those lines. Stony, autumnal nose, and very highly attenuated (a little too much, even for a saison). Interesting, but not that compelling.

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2007
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with ogglethorp. Pours a dark, cloudy copper red with a moderate off-white head that lasted through about two-thirds of the glass and left light lacing. Somewhat sour aroma of lemon, tart granny smith apples, cherry and some yeast. Flavor is sour cherry, cranberries, and some oakiness. Lively on the palate with lots of very tiny carbonation bubbles.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - NOV 30, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2008 Bottle. Wonderful aroma of some lemon zest, oak, some lacto funk, yeast and a hint of brett. Quite pleasing. Pours dark amber/brown with a bright white head. Great on the tongue. Lots of wood tannin hitting you in the back sides of the tongue. Some raisiny tart/sweetness from the malt, but balanced quite nicely. Lively and crisp on the tongue. Finishes with lot of dry wood tannin. Very nice!

Re-rate 6/2/08. The nose on this is still fantastic. Quite tart and sour with a very nice underlying funkiness and plenty of wood tannin. The flavor falls absolutely flat however. Lots of grainy yeastiness with little or no flavor midpalate back. The finish has become quite abrupt and watery. Wholly disappointing.
