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 youll 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 Noires 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.

355ml bottle from Brewdog shop. Barely any head, no lacing. Slightly hazy muddy brown body. Nose is yeast, sour apple. Flavour is lemon, tart apple, yeast, vinegar, malty undertones. Medium carbonation, a bit of creaminess to the mouthfeel. Like a more malty farmhouse sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Light spice aroma, this is a dark saison, some malty, wood notes, and a subtle sour finish. A bit thin in the mouth though.

En revenant dune pratique. Robe brune et au look boueux. Aucune mousse en surface et il va sans dire que mon verre est clatant de propret. Armes trs subtiles de funk bois et de torrfaction froide. Une bonne acidit en bouche, ponctue par des notes sres qui prennent des tournures de cerises griottes bien enrobes de leur pelure. Longue finale bien que sche et surtout amre. Une bire qui en temps normal me plairait peu mais qui ce soir est tout ce quil me fallait.
