4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2014 vintage enjoyed over a White Sox game at home. Pours a murky brown in color with a quickly dissipating fingers worth of creme colored head. Nose is big time cherry/cherry cough drop. It’s somewhat medicinal, malty, and just a tad vinous. Flavor is again dominated by cherry and red wine with backing maltiness. Almost a little reminiscent of a still nacht reserva to me. Medium bodied with decent carbonation and an enduring, inviting finish. Excellent beer, I should really pick up more of these to sit on. I imagine a couple years on this will be magical.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at BD Aberdeen. It pours deep orange/amber with a medium white head. The nose is earthy, spice, vinous, sherbet, over-ripe apple and some must. The taste is earth, brown bread, spice, warming alcohol, decent bitterness, mild sweetness, banana bread and cake with a dry finish. Medium body and high carbonation. Decent, but a bit rough around the edges.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bottledog, Kings Cross. Hazy, orangey amber. Bubbly, white head. Lots of spiciness. Bready, grainy maltiness. Peach stone. The Fantome funk is there, but in the background with this one. Taste is moderate dry, with a surprising amount of bitterness. Palate is oily, and slick. Fine carbonation, to match. A peppery character runs all the way through. Finish is light dry, and long bitter. I never get bored drinking Fantome beers.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dobre piwo niesamowicie metne. Calkowicie przybrudzone osadem. Korek wystrzelil hucznie ale dymku niewiele. Piana spora narastajaca. Ciemno pomaranczowe piwo aromatyczne jakby zgnile pomarancze. W smaku slodowosc, pszenicznosc i zbozowosc wyczuwalna. Chmiel w koncowce, ktora dala delikatna wrazliwa wytrawnosc. Goraco polecam. Zabawna etykieta w plamy
