In our hometown in 1965, Muhammad Ali won the world heavyweight title with a knockout blow some consider a "Phantom Punch". As our tribute to that fight, this big flippin’ stout packs a wallop of its own, with a ghostly hint of cocoa nib s and vanilla beans.

Nice heavy coffee-like aroma. Good solid dark brown color as it should be for a stout. Taste is a bit bit smoky and bitter which detracts from the sweet maltiness. Vanilla flavor is not prominent. Overall a tasty stout.

Not a complex beer,but admirable in a consistent bitterness. Coffee to unsweetened cocoa. Nothing "phantom" about it, what you see and taste is what you get, and it’s good.

Patrickctenchi (4455) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Can: Black, with a slightly purplish, dark tan head. Light, smoky chocolate scent. Slightly over-cooked coffee, bitter chocolate taste... Light ashy bitter. Not bad, but pretty weak and watery overall. Needs a bit more punch....and less phantom.

reggiedunlop (3381) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Pours pitch black with a thin tan head. Aroma is subdued but has dark chocolate and roastiness...a bit of a coca cola like scent. Flavor has significant roastiness...burnt/bitter...dark bakers chocolate...just a bit of vanilla...fairly bitter but a bit cardboardy. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with a dry and burnt/bitter finish.
