COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A very dark and entirely unique holiday seasonal beer, at a whopping 10% alc. by volume. Reportedly spiced with honey, caramel, coriander, black pepper, and other secret ingredients. The alcohol content probably goes a long way toward explaining that very warm and satisfied feeling one finds on the very first sip. A rich, dark-flavored beer with lots of deep-roasted chocolate malt, but still fairly dry, with a hint of sourness at the core. It is very spicy, with some winter spruce flavor in the bargain. The wild yeast sourness also adds to its welcoming character.

Hazy caramel-amber with big, flotsam, beige head / Delicate nose of orchard fruit, oak, caramel, and brett / Light to medium body, lively, mildly tart and acidic, alcohol not apparent, with excellent balance and dry, ever so lightly bitter, finish / Earthy, delicate flavors of green apple, rotten apple, cherry, chrysanthemum, buttered caramel, chocolate, oak, hay, and wet fur / Great stuff, as usual for Fantome.

A rich and very tastey treat for the holiday season. At 10 % abv, it also leaves a nice, warm feeling. Too bad it only comes once a year with Christmas.
