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.

Bottle @ THE Sour Tasting. The pour’s deep amber orange with a small head. The nose is of orage, dusty fart, old library book stack. Some roasted malt. The taste is grassy countryside, farmhouse dust, some peppery lemon and spices. Light soft body, hints of anise too. Overall, a bit strange. Not my favorite offering from Fantome.

75cl bottle, no BB date from Geers. Bière cuivrée/trouble, col beige voire jaunâtre. Arôme présente un léger bouquet fumé avec un renforcement au niveau de la levure restant dans un style typiquement Fantôme. Palais présente les caractéristiques de la base Fantôme, avec encore un aspect fumé, feuille de tabac, le tout couplé de qcq épices et une certaine épaisse visqueuse en bouche rappelant la version Pisse-en-lit. Pas dérangeant, mais je ne pense pas que cela soit le résultat escompté au départ. Base de malt reste sur du basique, entre pils-cara avec un ajout de malt plus torréfié qui apportant selon moi la distinction de la Fantôme.

Cloudy orange colored pour. Big light orange colored head. Plenty of lacing. Plenty of stuff floating around in the mix. A sour hoppy aroma with hints of malt, but not much. A sweet and acrid taste right up front. A nice bitterness and a slightly spicy note. Not sure what spices are actually in here, but it seems to be a hodgepodge of anything and, quite possibly, everything. Not bad. Strange.

Bottle shared by DalzAle. Pours cloudy light brown with a quick little head that dissipates. Aroma is tart and somewhat oxidized with a mild chocolate tootsie roll scent. Taste is again more tart sour and oxidized with tootsie roll flavors (I am really digging this!) Palate is fizzy and chalky. May be past its prime, but I really liked the tartness!

Bottle thanks to the deliriumfest cellar sale! Very dirty dark brown pour, tons of carbonation and an aroma of sour tart cherries. Flavor is slightly oxidized chocolate malt, sour cherry rinds and slightly spicy pears and champagne. Not a bad beer at all, but I think it has seen better days.

Thanks to Moll for this one. Served in a Fantome tulip. Nose has a bit of light caramel with some bread crust. Slight nuttiness and dry yeast. Flavor is a bit tannic and oxidized. Odd.

This is one of the craziest beers I’ve ever tried. Looks like mud, smells like nothing else. Huge black pepper, smoke flavor, hints of cinnamon and who knows what other spices. Wacky, but fun and very interesting.

yngwie (16507) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. A hazy, dark golden-orange beer topped by a dense, light beige head leaving lacings. Surprisingly the aroma has some roasted, chocolatey hints, although the beer lacks the color one would expect for these aromas. Some dried fruits, a touch of tropical fruits, some yeast and some white sugar too. And some spices. Quite dry on the palate, medium bodied and softly carbonated. Are there some peated or roasted malt in here as well? Roasted hints, dried fruits, tropical fruits and yeast. Some bitterness shows up in the end. Another beer from Fantome that are impossible to classify and hard to rate, but nice. 120915

Bottle, courtesy of Meilby. Pours cloudy amber with grey head. Aroma of malt, spices, fruitiness, red and yellow apples and yeast. Flavor is sweet and fruity with some peat, leather, apple and burnt rope. Medium body, average carbonation. A strange one , but still nice.
