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.

Ostomo517 (73) - Norton Shores, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Pours light back. Aroma is light roast and a hint of lacto. Palate is complex, lacto sourness and Brett complexity mixed in roasty malt. Hard to nail down, just go try it. Phenomenal

Beerenberger (1440) - Fischer, Texas, USA - SEP 12, 2014
The aroma of Saison yeast is accompanied with notes of toasted malt and Brett. A dark pour that when held to the light has a beautiful ruby glow and supports a voluminous ivory head and stringy lacing. On the palate, dark fruit and wood with hints of malt and Brett end in a dry bitter finish. Medium-light body with crisp, almost biting carbonation. Overall, an enjoyable twiste on a Saison.

nimbleprop (4869) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 24, 2014
On tap at Black Squirrel’s Michigan beer event during DC Beer Week 2014. Pours a hazy amber with some creamy off white head. Nose has some very notes, wood pulp, dandelion greens, some crackery, a little raisin, a little cherry. Maybe notes of brett C. Flavor is mild, some turbinado sugar sweetness, less tartness, some bland mass produced cherry, a little lime. Watery lightly tart finish.

Very dark red pour from tap with a ton of off white head. Not much aroma but what is there is fruity. Very light mildly carbonated mouth feel. Beer is a little sour and very light tasting. Kind of watery. Its okay.

drpimento (2224) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 8, 2014
This is better than the regular Bam. Poured with a frothy cream-colored long-lived head with a bit of lace and a clear dark amber color. Aroma is quite mild yeast malt tart. Flavor is like aroma with a bit of roast thrown in. Body is decent. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jhamp9 (1048) - Corinth, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Slightly hazy brown pour with a white head. Earth and leather aroma. Taste is the same with light spice and slightly tart. Light body. A bit thin.

KyotoLefty (6447) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 25, 2014
Bottled. Nose of chocolate and spice cookies. Cloudy brown-orange color with a huge airy head. Dry, bready flavor, chocolate, caramel, spices, grass. dry, light, interesting, yet not completely convincing. No where near as good as the blonde version.

umich03jm (1952) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Tap at Jolly Pumpkin. Pours hazy copper with a small ring of head. Aroma is spices with a hint of sourness. Tastes way overly spiced. Some burnt toast and very light sour dark fruit also. Not my kinda beer.
