12 oz. pour into a tumbler. Prohibition Taproom, Philly.

A- Chestnut in color. Great off white head, with great lacing. Retains low.

S- Sour, with caramel. Some cherry.

T- Sweet. Bready malt character. Cherry.

M- Smooth. Carbonation is very light. Tart, but with a wet and clean finish.

O- Solid drink. Very interesting blend of brown ale sweetness, and sour notes. Not like a flanders, though.

On draft, pours a hazy reddish brown, lots of head and good carbonation.

Smell is sweet caramel, funk, apples, hazelnut, candied sugar. The flavor is a bit quieter than the nose, but same line of thinking, more candied sugar, fruity with a little bit of funk, apricots. It is pretty balanced, but heavy for 4.3%. It is a bit chalky.

Overall, its good.

Bam Noire pours a darker amber color with a HUGE foamy lacing head. There is a sweet aroma with HUGE Belgian candy notes. The taste is very sweet, huge Belgian candy flavors, and a creamy yeasty note. The body is a little flat, and a little watery aftertaste. Overall, big sweet flavors, and a very light aftertaste.
