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.

SlovakSniper (5262) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2016
Belle saison qui exhibe des flaveurs de malts noirs avec des notes citronnes et des petits fruits sauvages. La bouche est facile, jamais aqueuse, fabrique pour ma grande soif du moment. Bien tonnante. Ma 5000ime bire sur RB. Drle de choix, nest-ce pas?

muzzlehatch (4874) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2016
Un-Muzzling Olde Muzzlehatch Ratings, #27. 12 ounce bottle, consumed (I believe) in some hotel room in Michigan towards the end of July, 2008. Typical JP enormous fluffy head topping a dark mocha, nearly impenetrable body...big roasty, dark sour cherry, toasty malts, light funkiness in the aroma...hints of chocolate in the fairly yeasty/bready, light, dry body...stony fruits, again just a light barnyard funkiness. I remember for years trying to get this again when it wasnt distributed in VT; now coming across this rating and having had a few other JP in the last couple of years that I wasnt wowed by, Im wondering if this will leave me cold on a re-taste, I seem to be one of the high raters on it - and I dont usually love these so-called black saisons. Hmmm. Have to look around, re-tasting pending; but I have to go with my impressions as written down just now.

Lots of sour, raw taste in there. Quite bitter with pine from the hops and caramel sweetness from the malt. A little bit tangy. Very impressive strength of flavour given the low ABV. Well done.

adamnowek (1948) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2016
Dark and slightly ruby colour. No head. Aroma is super farmhouse. Taste is tart and vinegary but quite modestly so. Balanced.

Draft - Dark soured malts and cherry. Cloudy copper with a small white head. Dark muddy sour notes, touch of dark fruit and a light finish.

beerplace (983) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 25, 2016
On tap at St. Augustines on Rare Beer Tap Takeover. Copper with beige head. Aroms similar to Flemish ales with cherry, some caramel and bready notes. It is not an original Saison for sure, it is Brown Sour Ale. Pleasant.

Dark brown with a white head. Aroma and taste are mildly sour, and not as complex or delicious as Ive come to expect from JP. $6/12oz
