daknole (9609) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Amber pour, light head. Aroma has toffee, pepper, yeast, light funk and some earthy, dusty notes. Flavor is dry, spicy, light pepper, funk, malt. Nice! THanks Danny. Great going away tasting from a classy crew of drinkers in Tally.

Yves (2391) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2015
Shared with wim at steven’s place. Hazy amber colored beer with medium off-white head and lots of carbonation. Hopped fruited aroma with some malty hinted. Full sparkling palate. Finish is hopped bitter sweet, spicy with some sour hints.

Dunt (297) - Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Picked up at La Primera in Chicago. They haven’t got any new Fantomes since Shelton left, so this bottle has to be 2-3 years old and likely in the "danger zone" years of Fantome. Fuck it, rolled the dice anyways to see. Loud pop when opened, pours a deep orangish brown in color with a fingers worth of frothy off-white head. So far, so good. Nose has a lot going on, I get citrus, pepper, spice, yeast, and smoke. Now Im worried. Give it a sip and there is the smoke unfortunately. It’s ever present with some backing spice that really makes it a tough drink. Light mouthfeel, no acidity, gentle carbonation, and a soft finish. Probably unfair to rate an infected bottle, so hope to revisit this in the future with a fresh batch. So happy 2014 has put this era behind for Fantome.

Cervesa molt curiosa i complexa, en aroma recorda a un celler i en gust té molts tocs a vi i a fusta. Cerveza muy curiosa y compleja, en aroma recuerda a una bodega y en sabor tiene muchos toques a vino y a madera.

wyzzywyz22 (2037) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle, Carringtons, Chorlton, Manchester. Somewhat murky brown pour with a small beige head. Sourish, pepper nose with yeast, wood and dark fruit notes. Sweetish flavour with the pepper evident alongside some funk, fruits and yeast. Not my favourite Fantome offering, but not without some character.

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Hazy amber pour with a big white head. Aromas of yeast, funk, and spices. Flavor is zesty yeast and a touch of black pepper. Interesting brew.

JefVerstraete (1656) - Ghent, BELGIUM - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle from Dranken Geers, 75cl. Brown/dark amber colour, white foam. Disappears quickly. Aroma of caramel, fruit and spices. Rather unbalanced. Tart notes. Special and strange beer.

"don’t get a lot of pepper, but it’s there. light-cola like pour. yeasty, fruity aroma w a hint of pepper and farm. dry flavor with a touch of sweeter dark malts. not bad but not worth the coin."
