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.

Bottle. Pours a brownish purple with a huge offwhite head. Gorgeous. Smells of yeast, cherries, tart apples, a little malt sweetness with maybe a hint of roast. Tastes of cherry stone, apple skins, and with a subdued sourness and tartness, and little spicy yeast kick. Light mouthfeel and very dry finish. Another wonderful JP offering. Just behind regular Bam, but oh so good. I hope they are able to start putting out 12ozes again, as this was a wonderful 6pack to enjoy, though a 750 certainly would be easy to drink by myself.

Bottle: Very good. Aroma of yeast and cherries. Flavor same as aroma. Small head and dark amber color. Very good.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2008
Unusually. Seriously funky nose. Very dark, foamy tan head. What is this? A black lambic? A black saison? Mild sweet fruit, like strawberry juice, a baby Flemish sour or a baby Rodenbach Grand Cru? Hints of sweet cocoa, danced on by lactic acid? Not much intensity. A bonus point for this much flavor in a beer under 5%, but a minus for the absurd price.

Pours blackish-purple with thick white head... very attractive. Pungent, spicy aroma of berries, cloves, sour apple, citrus, yeast, assorted dark fruit. Flavor is a letdown, however. Some sourness, some oak, some musty yeast, and some out-of-place lactose-water blandness. Didn’t have real high expectations for this one, and it got my hopes up with its great aroma and wonderful appearance. Alas, the flavor extremely meek.

750 ml Bottle courtesy myself. Wanted to share it, but had no takers. Their loss. Pours blackish red with a thick yeasty white head. Yeasty, sour, fruit aroma. Apple sour, citrus, yeast, malt taste with a nice medium body. Very tasty and the low abv made it easy to drink the whole bottle.

750ml bottle thanks to tytoanderso. Pours a hazy amber with a creamy off-white head that laces down in patches. Sour nose. Strong notes of oak, yeast, apples, barnyard, and cheese. I could sniff this for a while. Sweet and tart flavors start with an earthy, woody, leathery note. Rotten apples and browning fruit follow, but it all disappears to quick to leave a watery earthy note that lingers on the back of my tongue. Overall the flavors come off as a little watery and I’m wondering why JP beers seem to be a little less flavorful lately. I hope these yeasts haven’t been overused because I love this strain of brett and I’ll always be happy to take another version of Bam.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 Bottle, courtesy Tony at Oldsmar Tap House. Pours a dark brown with red highlights. Minimal white head, but good spotty lacing. Aroma is a tart, roasted flavor. Very interesting. Has a malty texture. Flavor is fairly tart, with a spicy body. Barnyard feel, cider. Roasted finish. Quite drinkable.

wetherel (1885) - Cupertino, California, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Bottle from nolankowal. Thick mixed bubble head that lingers on and on. Dark amber liquid. Some interesting aroma, that i want to say is either brett, corriander, or just from the yeast at high temperatures. Easy to drink.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Dark reddish brown pour with a a frothy, 1 finger, off-white head. Aroma is orange, apple, cinnamon, caramel, wet wood. Flavor is pepper, mixed fruit, tart sour apple. The finish is dry, thin and watery with a lingering damp wood note. Medium thin body with lots of carbonation.

SDalkoholic (2395) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAR 14, 2008
750 ml bottle from Pizza Port’s bottle shop. For some weird reason, the aroma of this brew smells like canned tuna or a tuna salad and that’s not very appetizing to start it off with. The appearance is a tea brown with a creamy layer of film gently sitting on top. In the flavor a weak and light presence of yeast is detected with watered down taste of malt. Aftertaste is empty and strange and overall I was unsatisfied with my experience with this ale.
