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.

trayns (246) - Beverly Hills, Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2009
On Tap. Pous a deep brown amber color with little to no head. The aroma is of malty nuts and caraml, and yeast back bone. The flavoris nice, full, and sweet. There is less body and palate than I expected, but it was an enjoyable tasting, and somewhat coplex flavor.

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 (6185) - 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 (1865) - 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.

Experiment_Ale (918) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2014
At common table on cask with my mom. Pours murky brown with almond, no head. Aroma is woody horsey barnyard. Taste is oakie, hint of tannic notes. Some almost funky tart, dark farmhouse is a good description. Light and thin but not necessarily drinkable.

kidmartinek (3559) - austin, Texas, USA - JUL 21, 2014
This is an opaque, deep amber beer with a dense white head. The aroma is highly acidic but the flavor quite full and mellow like dominant notes of chocolate player on a peppery lemon cello. The palate is so full of fizz-induced foam it makes it hard to reorder.

tmrmwel (858) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark amber with a big creamy head. Aroma is tart yeast with dark fruit and berries, brett and funk, as well as some sweet tobacco and vanilla. Full creamy body with average carbonation. Flavour is tart yeast, brett and berries, as well as a quite solid roasted malt backbone with bread and coffee. Lingering dry finish.

ChiGuy68 (399) - 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.

yngwie (13211) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle, 75cl. Batch 22. Opens with a bang, but it’s 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 there’s roasted malts, some prune hints and a good dash of funk. It is quite effervescent on the palate, dry and perhaps a bit thin. There’s 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 it’s quenching and tasteful anyway. 140622
