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.

Thanks to Odeed for this. Have had this sitting around for awhile, and figured it was time to give it a whirl. Corriander, Ginger, Crystal Malt, very light whiff of bitter chocolate with a cover of sour essence. Body is a brown/amber with a thin forming head. Taste is a slight horseblanket along with nutmeg, apricots, and a nicely balanced hop edge. Smooth on the palate.

I shared a big bottle with skortila and Noize. Very cloudy murky brown color, medium brown head. Aroma is slightly sour, yeasty, some malt, maybe some milk chocolat, but quite difficult to smell. Bit sour taste, yeasty, bit sweet and malty. Maybe there’s a big difference between different bottles, but this bottle certainly didn’t match up with the expectations...

Well a new shipment of different fantome brews arrived at my supply-store Bert. This chocolate brew isn’t too great... at least I expected more. It has a yeasty, a little chocolate malty and spicy aroma. Cloudy, brown coloured with a brown head. Taste is sweet and slightly sour. Very yeasty, bit hoppy, some chocolate malts, some spice and fruit. mwoah....

Aroma has got some hints of chocolate, but not much.. Flavor hasn’t got a strong chocolate taste either.A bit apple like, smooth hops.

(Bottle 75 cl) Hazy amber golden with floating impurities and a gigantic, off-white head. Vaguely malty nose. Full-bodied and malty body - but absolutely no traces of the chocolate. A very drinkable Fantome this time, which unfortunately is not always the case (but for some reason the beers always seem to improve immensely when crossing the Atlantic...) 270106
