Dunt (295) - Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Back at it, reviewing from notes. Purchased and opened at Fantomefest 2014. Pours a murky brownish color with a faint ring of foam around the glass. Nose is oxidation, earth, dirt, and light pepper. Flavor follows the nose with some earthy bitterness, spice, light cardboard, and a touch of pepper. Lighter mouthfeel that is dry with good carbonation and a moderate finish. Of the 3 BBB beers we opened, this was my least favorite. Love the artwork on this bottle though and it was a treat to try.

hopdog (9133) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2013
750ml bottle. Golden / amber pour with a larger sized off white head. Lots of caramel, some earth, and spices. Showed its age a bit, but grew on me the more I drank it and as it opened up.

TaktikMTL (6021) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2012
Bouteille verte de 750 ml partagée avec Goldorak et des amis lors d’un souper de Noël. Arôme: Légère odeur de caramel. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée voilée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de caramel avec une pointe de thé des bois. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Présence d’épices en arrière goût. (Rating #4088)

brokensail (11534) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Pours a murky dark amber color with a small off-white head. Heavy on the cardboard aroma and lots of blue cheese. A bit of caramel, toast, and yeast. Maybe some pepper. Sweet caramel flavor followed by lots of cardboard.

t0rin0 (68) - Do Not Resuscitate, California, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Pours dark brown, hazy, beige head that dissappears quickly. Aroma is chocolate powder, cardboard, and some caramel. Flavor is heavy on the cocoa and cardboard but also shows some nice caramel flavors, a hint of banana, and some light spice flavor. Not bad but definitely past it’s peak. Thanks Jason.

brewolf (169) - Wilderness, WA, USA, - FEB 16, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2012 Bottle courtesy of sincereNc. Thanks a BUNCH, Ian! Pours a gorgeous, translucent burnished bronze, and is topped by a creamy beige head. Aroma is peppery candied ginger with a sweet, but elegant, sake-like graininess. Flavor reveals the nose, and adds notes of sandalwood, sherry, toasted pumpkin seeds, earthy mushroom mustiness, and a tarragon-like herbal quality. Mouthfeel is velvety, and the light hops cut the emerging sweetness for a nice, semi-dry finish. Really like the 6.4% instead of Dany’s typical 8%. This bottle was phenomenal.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Thanks to Beerlando for sharing this one! Classic Fantome funkiness on the nose with a strong maltiness. Pours amber blonde with a thin white head. Peppery, funky, with some caramel, malty, a slight minty flavor with hints of marhmellow. Awesome.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 26, 2009
Bottle courtesy of dkachur on 03/14/2009. Somewhat hazy dark amber body with ruby highlights. Sweet caramel with some earthy malt. Big caramel and earthy malt flavor, some light spicy hints. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 14, 2009
An orange-brown body with a thin white head. Sweet aroma, something almost reminds me of a nice sake. Taste again has some rice accents with a nice light apple and some grass. Smooth, yet slightly hot ending. Very nice.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 14, 2009
750 mL bottle courtesy of Captain Cougar. Pours a slightly hazed copper color with a medium head. Good retention and decent lacing. Aroma of brown sugar, caramel, grain and an herbal finish. Taste is brown sugar, caramel, toastiness and light smoke. Subtle herbal note. Full bodied.
