COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

jd543 (418) - SCOTLAND - OCT 13, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2013 Hazy amber-red with a huge off-white head. Aroma of spices, citrus, some leather, black pepper, yeast, marmite. Light sweet with a tartness and a bit sour. Really nice saison.

haukur (1431) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - OCT 6, 2013
Delightfully strange brew. Pours a huge head, barn and funk dominate the aroma, which is as funky as it gets. Extremely dry finish. Another winner for me from Fantome

Eructoblaster (3363) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle - 750ml. Opaque caramel body with a good off-white foamy head. Sharp hoppy aroma with citrusy, spicy, and flowery hints. Its strong hoppy taste carries grainy, herbal, and pepperish notes. Ends with a long, sharp, dry sour finish. A bit weird, but not bad.

Garrold (2603) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2013
Bottle from Dram Shop, Sheffield. Took the cap off and the cork started to work itself loose! Very lively, yeasty bits and bobs all over the place. Murky brown with a thick, lasting beige head. Not a lot of aroma other than a saisson sourness. Tastes of sour apple, a hint of dark fruit. Very faint spicy, possibly cinnamon aftertaste. Quite a bonkers beer, really. No less than you’d expect?

BeerGolem (750) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2013
Bouteille 750 ml. Mélange opaque couleur tarte aux pommes - caramel. Arôme: fumé, malt, levures sauvages, épices. Goût acide (pomme verte), fumée, épices, caramel. Désagréable arrière-goût de vidanges. Le tout est mal équilibér et donne mal au coeur. Texture aqueuse. Finale sèche. Décevante, à éviter.

Theydon_Bois (12726) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2013
Bottle, split by myself at no small expense at the Cask, Pimlico - 10/05/13. Obscured dark amber/brown akin to the shades of Kidsgrove canal with a thin beige head. Nose carries sour fruits, light smoke, toffee, tangy orange, tarte apricot, bitter fruit notes, light spice. Taste comprises much the same as the nose, lots of sour/tarte fruit, orange pith, herb, spice, bitter grapefruit backnote, toffee, apricot. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry in the finish. A decent enough drop but overpriced for the end product when compared to other beers.
