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.

Saison spudoratamente acida e con sentori erbacei e profumati, molto persistente sul palato. Il nome crea qualche aspettativa su un presunto "chocolate" che invece non c’é, ma possiamo perdornarli perché è comunque molto buona. Grado ben mascherato.

Saison, nonostante il nome, senza sentori di cioccolato. Aroma acido, cantina, quasi da lambic. In bocca esplosione di sapore. Particolare, come tutte quelle della brasserie fantome. La migliore tra quelle che ho provato

Bottle 75 cl. Copper-golden ale. Good head. Herbal and pepper at the nose. Good and interesting herbal and brettanomicetus taste. Interesting saison, although I couldn’t find any chocolate...

Weird, ugly, and off like a lot of Fantome beers but you know what? I like it. Its tart, earthy, vegetal, and lacking identity but its got that dirty Fantome charm that makes it interesting.

Hazy amber/orange colour. Medium carbonation. Weird beer. Sour and bitter, almost no sweetness. Aroma of green apple, yeast and hops. I can not detect any chocolat.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2013 Bottle: murky, dark-amber color with a huge, light-beige head that pillows up and leaves nice chunks of lacing behind... good looking saison. Aroma is relatively fruity; ripe, green apples, white grapes, light cherries, lots of funk, wet wood, musty cellar, & damp cork. Mild yeasty spice in the finish, estery... I’m not really getting any chocolate or chilies, but apparently they’re here. Regardless, nice smelling for the style. Taste is another good mix of fruit and funk. Pears, apples, white grapes, tart but not quite sour with a back-end sweetness, funky yeast, wet barnyard notes, musty cork. The funk is a bit lighter on the palate, allowing the tart fruitiness to shine. Ester filled, bready & spicy yeast in the finish. Still, no chilies or chocolate, but a damn fine beer nonetheless. One of Fantome’s "hits".

A dark gold beer, with a good white head. It is a very unclear beer, a refermented beer. In the nose there is sour, lime, yeast and it smells old. It is medium bodied with an excellent fine carbonation. The main taste is sour, and earthy. There is a light Chili touch in the beer, and in the far background there is maybe some chocolat. The aftertaste is sour, and the Chili becomes stronger. Overal it is not what i suspected, a disapionting beer, but the batch could be totally different, so... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not really much for chocolate flavors, this got aged a LOT, some bretty flavors, some odd grains, surprising pretty decent shockingly!

TAP at the brewery, shared with Mathieu87. APPEARANCE: clouded dark blond beer. NOSE: fresh, hoppy, very fruity, citrus, red fruits. TASTE: watery, herbs, spicy, fruity. Don’t get the chocolate in this one, but again the same herbs that yet get like most Fantôme beers! Decent
