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.

A brilliant offering from Jolly Pumpkin. Batch 895 Bottled 9/26/11 Opened 11/24/11 Bam Noire pours a thick, opaque auburn with bright copper around the edges. A one and a half finger head rose readily to the top of a pint glass. Fine bubbles. 6-7 minutes into drinking there is still a thin layer of fizz. The aroma of this beer is lovely. Lots going on. Nose warrants repeated examinations. Currant, golden raisin and bing cherry lead the charge. Keep smelling and you’ll get dark sorghum and a faint, sour/metallic note. A pop of miso reminds me of a soy-sherry reduction. Flavors develop nicely around the tongue. Tart cherry and a sour profile are the stars riding a light malt background. That sour start fades into a full expression of old ranch living: worked leather and yellow straw. Long, subtle, dark fruit finish. Important to note that the sourness is not overwhelming or abrasive. Quite mild, in fact. In terms of mouthfeel this beer can be summed up in a word: rich. Medium body and sublime, silky carbonation. Bam Noire’s sour astringency reminds you your drinking something on the wild side. An extremely pleasing experience. At the end of the day this stand-out from Jolly Pumpkin is a hell of a lot of fun. A chewy and rewarding bottle for those familiar to the world of sour beer but also an excellent potential introduction for the uninitiated. Recommended drinking.

Hatalmas, felbontás után az üvegből is előtörő hab. Nem vagyok biztos benne hogy ilyennek kell lennie. Barna szín. Savanykás, boros, ecetes illat. Savanykás, fűszeres, enyhén karamelles, fehérboros, balzsamecetes ízvilág. Könnyed, közepesen szénsavas, enyhén keserű. Frissítő, jól összerakott sör, de szerintem egy kicsit ecetesebb mint kellene.

I do not drink that much, but I have fantasies about this beer. I remember it like one of the best damn things one could want in a beer - thick, dark, smooth but significant taste. Everything one could want in something dark. This beer is probably the best I’ve ever tasted.
