750 ml. into footed glass. Kind of underwhelming. Nothing about this beer stood out to me. After reading the description, I now know that the occassional spiciness underneath the dark, non-sweet chocolate malt is black pepper, but that flavor never came to mind while drinking. Smooth and quaffable, surely, but without any of the stand-out uniqueness I’ve come to expect from Fantome.

Borresteijn (4927) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2014
75cl Bottle from De Molen shop. Pours clear ruby/copper colour, thin white head. Aroma of red wine most, flowers, malts, citrus, wheat. Flavour is medium sweet, light malty, amber malts, red wine most, or rosé wine, light floral, yeasty, hint of tartness, wheat, light spicy (no pepper though), light-bitter finish. Nice, relatively complex.

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 (1594) - 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.

slowrunner77 (6090) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 16, 2014
"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."

jkwood04 (4174) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 8, 2014
750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber with an off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, light funk and light tartness, caramel and toffee malts, some light dough and bread, and some light floral hops. Flavor the same with a cool blend. Average texture. A pretty cool beer but not perfectly balanced.

Habanero (2753) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2014
Bottled. Pours hazy, amber with an average, off-white head. Aroma of yeast, caramel, peppery notes, pineapple, flowers and citrus. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and slightly bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A nice Belgian.
