3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2008 Courtesy Redlight, thanks for sharing this Brent! This one poured a dark brownish color with a medium tan colored head. The aroma was intense of oak, sour fruits, some acidity, and a lot of funk to go with it. There some of that old barnyard and leather smell too. The flavor was full of funk, wood, sour fruit, with some bitterness in there as well. There was alot going on with this one. It was pretty full on the palate with a good amount of carbonation. The finish was sligtly tart with some funk and bitterness on the back end. I’m glad I got to try this one. Another solid brew from the crew at JP.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear red/brown with a thin lacing of a tight bubly head. BIg funk aroma of sour cherries, wet oak, and a slight touch of soulfur. Flavor of wood, funk and slight sour fruit. The flavor was rather weak and the mouth feel was fizzy and watery almost like it was a 60/40 mixture of beer and sletzer. Don’t get me wrong this is a god beer it just seems like it should have been thicker and sronger.

Much thanks to hopdog for sharing this one off my wants list. Pours a translucent orange amber with a medium bubbly off white head.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark brown, mountainous craggy head lasts longer than the rest of the beer. Hard to describe what this smells like...
Tastes slightly sour, earthy, woodsy. I think I prefer the original Bam Bier right now. Will try again soon.

Bottle. Pour is a very dark brown that lets a few reddish highlights pour through. Head is medium sized and leaves a little bit of lacing behind as it recedes. Aromas are of pungent spices and rotting leaves with a bit of a sour note. Flavor is toned down from some of the other JP offerings... the sour and spicy notes are still there, but not so overpowering. Flavor is earthy and sour.
