COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy deep orange with a thin head that dissipates completely and quickly. Aroma has a bit of light chocolate with sweet grains and a touch of spice. Flavor is lighter with light flora, light fruits and a bit of tartness with a finish that has a touch of chocolate.

langeveld12 (249) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2014
Poured a huge head quick was partly rocky, partly creamy and partly frothy, white and mostly lasting. Body is hazy yellow orange with medium particles and sparkles visible. Aroma contains moderate malts (grain, molasses, milk chocolate), moderate hops (flowers, perfume, pine, orange, lemon), light yeasts (dough, leather) and banana, apple, cherry, cassis, vanilla, forest fruits and spices. Flavor is light acidic, then light acidic and light sweet, followed by light acidic and light bitter and finishing in bitter. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. A decent Saison with hints of chocolate and spices that make a nice addition. Not a ’chocolate’ beer, though

Lukasmh (206) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy dark yellow to orange with small white head. Aroma is lot of yeast, like all the fantomès its a bit funky, fruity and some wheat. Taste is medium sweet and as it warms the alcohol stands out. Creamy body, but slight dry finish. Some subtle chile heat.

Vestergaard (424) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours cludy orange-amber with a medium size, white, lasting head. Aroma has barn, wheat, some sweet, fruity notes, dry notes of grains, alcohol. Taste is slightly alcoholic, but has lot of wheat-beer-fruits. A bit of esters, a very subtle, dry chocolate, but i don’t think i would guess it if i didn’t know. Some funky yeast, and some alcohol. Medium body and medium carb.

Sissio (687) - Orsenigo, ITALY - SEP 28, 2014
Light hazy, golden, minimal white head. Citric notes, hint if cardboard, some cocoa, but generally flat. Citric taste, cocoa beans like bitterness at the end. Pretty strange, goes nicely with roasted cocoa beans.

alexsdad06 (5803) - Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy dark golden orange color with a medium sized off white head.. The aroma and flavor have the standard Fantome funk, earthy, apples and pears, some chili peppers on the nose with the lightest amount of cocoa powder coming through. I kind of like their own funk, but hoped for a bit more with this.

Bomber. Pours an amber orange with a beige head and aroma of grains, light chocolate. and yeast. Taste is interesting, the chillies and chocolate come through, along with spices and yeast notes into the finish. Unique and interesting brew
