A Belgian ’saison-style’ ale brewed with cocoa powder and chili pepper? Ay, Caramba! Score another first for the unpredictable brewery that was the first -- and so far the only - brewery to make ales out of dandelions and mushrooms, among other things.

VsXsV (2594) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle. Light hazy deep amber liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of light smoke, white pepper, burnt electronics, grain and light bubblegum. Taste is dry and light sour with notes of white pepper, light smoke and grain. Light to medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Good but not much chocolate flavour.

zacgillbanks (2794) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This hazy pale golden beer pours with a huge foamy head. It has spicy juicy lemon, vanilla and citrus flavours with a hint of milk chocolate on the finish. I can’t detect any chilli.

ShivanDragon (1951) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2014
helder gouden met schuimig witte kraag. Aroma komt iets saison achtig binnen. verder pilsmouten, nat gras. hmm niet zo bijzonder. Smaken zijn redelijk zoet, matig bitter, licht scherp, maar gewoon weer erg veel saison smaken en dan wel zonder chocolade of chili what so ever .... verder zuur... funky...barnyard... grassig...waterig...yikes... not that great...

gegwilson (1678) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle from Rehills of Jesmond. Pours a slightly hazy straw colour with a big frothy white head. The aroma is rustic with farmy notes and citrus. It makes me a little apprehensive about how chocolate and chilli are going to work with this style of beer. The taste is pretty interesting. There’s a lot of carbonations so your hit with a big mouthful at first with spice and sour earthy flavours. Nice and refreshing. I can’t say chilli and chocolate flavours come through particularly strongly, but that may be a good thing. A little heat in the aftertaste is as much as I could detect. Overall a very enjoyable beer.

ksiwzos (80) - GREECE - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle from Belgian e-shop Amazing brew, Not as good and complex as the breweries Saison but amazing non the less. Aroma is sweet, fruity, notes of funk, spices, hint of fruity esters very complex. Hazy orange with dark amber tints color. White lasting head. Alcohol shoes more than in the Saison of Fantome Brewery. Very nice taste, sour, sweet, you can imagine chocolate but I wouldn’t if I didn’t know... Nice dry and long finish, medium body with medium carbonation.
