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.

ChiGuy68 (426) - Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Tasted on tap at Jolly Pumpkin in Ann Arbor. It poured a cloudy nut brown hue with a white head and minimal lacing. Sour malt and spice aroma. Tart taste with a dry lemony finish.

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

GG (2326) - NorCal, California, USA - NOV 11, 2014
750ml bottle - Just an amazing beer full of funky/tart goodness, yet still so drinkable and enjoyable. Shared w/ my brother while smoking som babybacks for the Raider tailgate. Aroma was dusty, slightly citrusy with some pear/apple juice with some light malt-vinegar note. Totally different that what one would expect looking at a beer as dark as this. Creamy dense white head, milky with a black body. Musty flavor, dry with just a touch of funky/citrus. Very light touch of roasty-dry bitterness comes thru. Really a beautiful session beer. Easy to drink large amounts of this.

JDBaker11058 (1366) - Maryland, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Appearance: medium brown, lightly clouded, with a short, creamy light tan head. Aroma: toasted brown bread, earthy funk, wet wood. Taste: saison barnyard funk with a hint of brett, a bit roasty and toasty with darker malts, a hint of Belgian waffle and pine nut . Finish: typical JP finish--slightly sour and funky, but with lingering toasted bread notes to darken it up. Notes: Thought this was a really creative darker saison. A little toasty to go with the usual JP funk. Enjoyable. On draught at Victoria’s Gastropub, Columbia, Maryland.

Caytinator (966) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 12, 2014
750mL bottle. Pours a murky dark brown color, translucent, with a big ’ol puffy white head that lingers forever. Good lacing/adhesion. Aroma is definitely sour, some brett sourness and a hint of spice. Taste matches, sour, with a tinge of roasted malt. Palate is slightly thin, and has an unsatisfying bitter finish that I think is lacking. Not the greatest overall but interesting nonetheless -- also a terrible description by the brewery.

slowrunner77 (6114) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 5, 2014
this is a pretty cool beer. of course it has the standard funky/sour/wild aspect that pretty much all JP beers have in common...and that’s a good thing. the dark malt lends a bit of sweetness and body too, but after that there’s nothing to it. little follow through. another good beer from them, but so far only the LaRoja was great!"

9/26/2014. From bottle. Cloudy brown with a massive off-white head. Funky yeast aromas with hints of oak, dark fruit and spices. Sugary flavors, still tart and spicy with a sour finish.
