Once described as a Belgian Irish-style stout, Black Ghost has undergone lots of changes over the years. It now bears no resemblance whatsoever to a stout, and brewer Dany Prignon has begun adding spices to the beer. What they are is anybody’s guess...the Fantôme confounds once again.

gad905 (202) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2014
Backlog rate from 27/11/13, tasting at RichTheVillan’s. Murky dark greyish brown, sharp funky notes on the nose. Slight sweetness, some roast flavours, spice, brett funk and acidity, some citrus. Very spritzy. Complex and interesting but not the most satisying.

"Pours slightly murky brown, lighter than the average porter. Slightly tart fruity aroma, though some chocolate and roasted malts are in there too. Prickly feel. No sign of abv. Flavor is pretty well balance between light funk and English brown type matinees. Nice enough though I was expecting more."

Oh boy, more torture. Ugh. Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a snifter and a tulip. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange to somewhat off color brown. One finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. The smell had some burnt off barnyard funky soured oranges. The taste was basically the same. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with not much sessionability to me as it’s just too damn leathery and tart and sour. Overall, I’m hoping my abuse from this brewery is in sight but it’s not.
