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.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2007
Pours a dark hazy red, almost opaque, with a nice lasting white head. Aroma is spicy, with hints of tangy and sour cherries. Light maltiness. Taste has a solid toasted and roasty malt core. Cinnamon and other light spices. Hints of fruity hops. Finish is bitter, dark. Great body on this one, light and frothy.

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.

yngwie (13104) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle, 75cl. Batch 22. Opens with a bang, but itís no gusher. It pours an auburn, hazy body and a big, creamy, off-white head that collapses into finger-thick height. The aroma is sort of reminiscent of strawberries at first, but then thereís roasted malts, some prune hints and a good dash of funk. It is quite effervescent on the palate, dry and perhaps a bit thin. Thereís orange zest, leather, roasted malts and dried fruits in the flavor, almost no sweetness. Lasting light roasted, funky and citrus peel-ish finish. Too carbonated this one, but itís quenching and tasteful anyway. 140622

HIGHB4LL (421) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Bomber from Wilburís. Appearance: 3 fingers slightly off-white head, copper/amber color, cloudy, ok lacing. Aroma: grapes, molasses, light pine, light other fruitiness. Palate: light body, soft carbonation, dry and bitter finish, thin, almost watery texture, but in a good way. Taste: sweet fruit and very slightly tart, with a nice little piney bitterness taking over on the end. Overall, super unique, very very drinkable, and just pleasant.

BrewGoblin (238) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
All sorts of fun stuff going on in this beaut. Nice fermented fruit smells, cherry, raisin, lemon and orange. This pup was pretty murky, dark and had some sediment floating about. Excellent taste here, light sweetness, lightly bitter, and medium sourness. Loads of earthy, rotting notes nicely coupled with sweet and sour fruitcake flavours and citrus pinch. Nice lively, dancing feel on the tongue. Went down smooth and left me wanting more.

BelgianBeerGal (3102) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Traded bottle, Batch 508 bottled 2-11-10. I kept skipping this bottle because I thought I had already rated it...multiple times. Clear, light brown color with bubbly carbonation that reminds me of Coke. Aroma is some light malt but with a nice lemony tartness. The flavor starts with more lemon tartness but then finishes with a slight earthiness. Nice.
