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 75 cl) Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours a hazy, dark brown with an orange hue. Head is completely absent. Lightly tart, spicy nose. A little thin and almost completely flat. No real malty feel - just this weird acidity. Must’ve been a bad bottle. 280907

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2012 27th October 2008. Cloudy brown beer. A pleasant citrus sour start rapidly mutates in to a very dry and slightly spicy beer. The ending is suprisingly watery for it’s abv making this beer slightly hard work. Original Rating 2.5

19th October 2012
THE Sour and Saison tasting. Cloudy amber beer, good cream - tan head. Light palate, a little soft. Mild carbonation. Light fruity tang underneath medium smoke. Semi soft finish with an earth aftertaste then a little fresh black pepper.

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
