MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2004
750 ml. Brown with a huge tan head. Funky hop aroma, which I am guessing is the SG hop. Nice and funky. Flavor is malty and hoppy, with a touch of chocolate. Smooth finish. This is real nice and enjoyable. Nice malt profile.

GregClow (2912) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2004
Red-amber colour with lots of little floaties. Aroma is fruity, flowery and funky. Favour is quite complex - I wish I’d had it earlier in the tasting so I could’ve gotten more out of it, but even after a whole whack of other beers, I really dug it. [Toronto Christmas Party ’04]

davesarman (159) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2004
Nice woody aroma. Slightly spicy, caramel sweet as well. Cola colored brown. Medium carbonation. Head forms then fades, leaving small ring around the surface of the beer. Taste is rich and sweet. Malt, dark candi sugar, slight spiciness. There is some dryness to the finish which balances this out nicely and makes it quite drinkable. Very nice beer.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2004
Cloudy, medium amber w/ generous, foamy, light beige head. Nice lace. Aroma is flowery, fruity, spicy, & sweet w/ a light effervescent tartness. Light, highly carbonated feel. Sweet, malty flavour w/ peppery, grassy finish.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - DEC 18, 2004
Yeasty aroma along with some nice funk, cherry/grape, and some spice that I cannot quite put my finger on. Nice complex flavor of the funk, yeast, fruit, spice, and even a touch of hoppy bitterness. Medium bodied, pretty dry, very light alcohol. Not incredibly big in stature but carries a nice subtle complexity that makes it quite a nice beer.

rudolf (2342) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 12, 2004
Thanks to whoever brought this to the Toronto Christmas Party ’04. Sour oakey nose - grape skin. Astringent, lemon, cherry pits, yeast. Great bitterness.

jercraigs (8070) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2004
Unknown vintage. Hazy amber body with a moderate fluffy white head, and some nice lacing. Mildly sour aroma is a bit muted. Flavour starts out mildly sour with some nice maltyness and some vague yeasty spice. Finish has a mild lingering sourness. Palate is a bit light but nice. Surprisingly little here, not sure if its the beer or a bit of palate fatigue, but I expect more complexity from a Fantome than I found here. Toronto Christmas Party 2004.

jzzbassman (1522) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Poured cloudy dark brown with a rocky, quickly disappating head. Big funky aroma of sour cherry, oak, and spice. Flavor was also funky with yeast and spice dominating, with hint of sour fruit in the background. Very carbonated, but not overwhelmingly so. If Fantome makes a bad beer, I haven’t found it yet.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 3, 2004
(750ml bottle) Pours a dark brown body with a huge rocky beige head. Aroma of raisins, plum, brown sugar, sweet malt, and yeast. Flavor of yeast, dark fruits, and spices.
