I definitely noticed the cocoa notes in here. This is my first beer from the vaunted Fantome and it is not a disappointment. I also have a bottle of the Printemps and am looking forward to sampling all I can find from this interesting brewery.

Of the dark and the regular Babillard, i think i prefer the regular white labeled version. This was still very nice. Muddy appearance. Spicy, sour/touch bitter, a bit of choc or caramel, and some light roastiness. Tasty.

Brown and maroon, with a tan head. Smells dark fruit and chocolate. Tasting is a mellow taste of fruits, hops, malts, and a hint of chocolate, but unfortunatly leaves a bad after taste.

Very brown body with a nice nose of raw coco. OIly tan head that haunted the glass for a long time. Dark and stormy nights in the barn. Celery and cheese peek from behind the curtain of coco and licorish as something leaves a trail of lightly smoked seaweed.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 a thick pillow atop the brown..a nice place to take a nap..but the smells of a dark scary barnyard kept me awake..candied dark fruits and chocolate playdough intertwined with dark overripe cherries...leaving bitter trails..mellow fantomeness not being able to grow..kept in check with subtle chocolate

Murky dark apple cider. Thin, tiny bubbled tan head. Slowly rising carbonation. Interesting aroma of lipstick, black cherries, lambic sourness, dark toffee and barnyard. First sip is thin, watery and yet mildly crisp. Quick rush of flavors leave nothing but a sour cherry note alongside an acidic flair. A delicate, light body but there’s substantial flavor lurking beneath. Faintly spicy, dry and only hinting at farmhouse qualities. Fruity slickness is begging to be unleashed in its cold state. Savory spices fill the aftertaste as it warms. Sage, thyme, dill. ABV is a non-factor as expected. Huge yeast pour mutes the tartness and counters the savory nature. Another strange mixture of spices. Finishes fuller, bone dry, lambic tart (though tame by comparision) and savory. Definitely a brew to pair with a big meal. A chore on its own.

dark brown colour, few head, deep aroma of dark fruits, the cork is noticable (God I hate corked beers !), too much carbonation, tart, vinous, moderate maltiness, sweet with a moderate fruity finish
