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.

Nice hazy-brown hue. Body was thinner and lighter than I expected. Malts were toasty yet subdued. Very subtle caramel in the background. Pleasant aromas of apple, pear and light yeast. Just a hint of tart/sour in the finish. I wanted more ... of everything. Flavors and aromas were really nice, but they were much too restrained and they didnít seem to last long enough.

Many thanks to xmarcnolanx for sharing this. Pours chestnut brown with a small off-white head. The aroma has lots of funk, fruitiness, spices, brett, some oak and a good deal of tartness. Very light body with sharp carbonation. The flavor has leather and tobacco notes, tart lemony flavors, some bitterness from the dark malt and brett-like funkiness. A very nice interesting beer. Hopefully Iím able to get my mitts on a sixer and can give a better rerate after having a few.

Bottle. pours a somewhat hazy dark brown/garnet color with a smallish beige colored head. Aroma is sour, yeast, barn, earthy, light spice. Flavor is hay, grass, caramel malts, yeast, earthen. Palate is medium to light bodied, medium carbonation, finishes bitter and dry. Very good stuff, Bam without the edge!

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 5, 2007
Pours a hazy, garnet color with a full, cream-colored, rocky-creamy head; head is mostly lasting and leaves nice lacing. Typical JP sour notes of brett with notes of plum skins, coriander, earth undertones, nutty dark breads, light chocolate, and baking spices (cinnamon and nutmeg). Flavor is drastically different from the nose, drier, darker, and less fruity than expected; more exaggerated earth tones, funky wet hay notes, hints at cedar, lemon peel, light roast notes, and a moderate bitterness. Palate is light to medium, lively, and dry. Finishes with the minimal tartness disappearing, leaving only hop bitterness, faint roast notes, and some lingering cedar. The nose had me quite excited to try this one but the flavor and palate came to disappoint a bit. A nice darker, drier version of the original which has some better qualities and some worse ones as well.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - NOV 4, 2007
750mL bottle, courtesy of jjpm74. Thanks, John! Pours a hazy, cherry cola color with fine-bubbled lacing. Nice brett character with a toasty biscuit and brown sugar character underneath; some dry spice. Disappointingly light mouthfeel: slightly watery, with a very light tartness; biscuity notes and brown sugar and spice; predominantly one-dimensional and muddled. Medium, brown sugar and mildly tart, citrus finish.

notalush (4991) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2007
Thanks to footy for this - cloudy, dark reddish brown - aroma of black cherry, cocoa, leather, slight funkiness, but not much - really dry, with slight acidity and touches of cocoa - some woody character to it - not a lot of depth - I expected a lot more sourness and funk from JP - decent, but lacking complexity.

Stine (1627) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2007
Poured from a 750. Murky, reddish brown pour. Aroma suggests plenty of brett, carpet, vinegar. Cayenne, a touch of chocolate, and sun-dried tomato. Funky, but by a comparitively reserved presentation. Black malt imposes itself immediately with a flavor of astringent soap that rubs harshly, before fading quickly into warmer pulses of pepper, orange rind, and a heavy-handed brett sourness that dries it out with no lack of intensity. A sparkling tanginess with a melon rind and balsamic character breaches the dense bretty surface. Light to medium and very sprightly in the mouth. The predictable wild pulse of lemon juice arrives faithfully with its animalistic dryness. It retains a refreshing simplicity, though remaining far from simplistic; intricately woven and successful. Thanks for sharing, Ken!

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2007
Dark brown beer. Malty and fairly sweet with a soft herbal aroma. Earthy and softly nutty. Fairly sweet with some light milk chocolate, toffee and caramel. Light acidic fruitiness. Maybe needs more time in the bottle. Right now, itís not that well integrated at all.

emerson430 (95) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2007
Cask pull in a pint glass: semi-transparent dark amber almost chocolate color. Strong smell of straw and malt. Flavor is dry with a tannic smack in the palate. Not as deep or as sour as the regular bam. Head was a wonderful creamy off white that lasted for 75% of the pint. A more subtle and delicate version of the regular bam.
