Ungstrup (29837) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2005
[Sampled at the Pre-GABF Babblefest 2004] An unclear dark brown beer with a nice brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of yeast and spices. The flavor is also sweet with notes of yeast and spices - here coriander stands out, but it also has some hints of sourness to it.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - APR 21, 2005
Sour mocha and Madeira notes with dried dark fruits and burnt caramel. Anise and candy sugar notes with a good mouthfeel and nice lingering finish.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2005
Cloudy dark brown coloured. Chocolate, coffee, yeast, citrus, wood, sourness and strangeness in the aroma. Earthy and strange flavour with some sourness. Slightly unbalanced.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2005
An unclear dark brown beer with a fine light brown head. Strong malt aroma with a (typical Fantome) rather sour tone. Quite vinous with plenty of spices. Flavor has a sharp tartness as well with plenty of roasted malt, spices and hints of brown sugar. Almost grapefruity in the finish. Makes me think of Cuvee de Tomme from Pizza Port!? Very special, and like most Fantomes, it just gets too much in the long run.

footy (345) - scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 28, 2004
bottled 750 ml. Dark brown. Raisins and vinous aroma. Malty with bitter aftertaste. Pretty good but not exceptional.

pivo (2585) - GERMANY - NOV 7, 2004
This starts off great but goes down hill. This pattern seems common with the brewer for me. Pungent nose with hints of balsamic vinegar amidst yeast aromas. Murky brown color and a lathery head. Stale toast tastes with a slight sourness. Chocolate and toffee finish is enjoyable. Odd balance. Warming alcohol effect in the throat after the swallow.

hotstuff (4269) - Indiana, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Bottle in Hamburg with Yogi and Pivo. Appearance was a small tan head, fast rising carbonation, cloudy, no lacing, and a reddish brown hue. Malty, alcohol and vinegar aroma. Malt and vinuous flavor which did not live up to a really good BSA IMO. Tingly palate. Medium bodied BSA.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 14, 2004
The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 98. This bottled brew poured a small head of finely sized brown colored bubbles. The body contained average carbonation, was transparent yet cloudy and brown in color. Its aroma was unnoted. Its mouth feel is vinous tingly sour and off with a palate licorice and a yucky sour aftertaste. Its flavor was not worth noting. It gave me gas. Pass on this one!

YogiBeera (2493) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2004
I was really disappointed by this BSA - but it is still an average example of it’s style. Hazy brown with hints of red. Spare Head. Veggie nose, also vinegar (balsamico) and malt. Kind of Veggetable taste, weird though, some fruity taste too. All in all unbalanced or like too young.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 5, 2004
POurs a deep amber/brown with a small, lasting off white head. Aromas of apples, caramel, Funk, cherries and a tartness in the nose. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with flavors of...wow... this may be one of the most complex flavors I have tasted in a beer. Chocolate, cherries, the sweetness and mouth-numbing of pears, tobacco, and some apples. Finishes fairly drym but damn this has some unique flavors to it.
