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.

ebone1988 (1802) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - DEC 22, 2016
Bottle shared with koleminer20 for the book, because I called his bluff. Aroma is fruity, tropical fruit, dusty barnyard, some peppers, dry, banana, clove. Appearance is amber, white head, hazy. Taste is fruity, dry, barnyard, robust yeast, booze, not much pepper, no detectable cocoa, not good. Mouthfeel is medium body, little to no carbonation, metallic dry barnyard aftertaste. Overall, it isn’t good.

Lukaduke (3196) - Gray, Maine, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Fantome through and through with more questions than answers. Rustic hay, wet straw, clay, touch of sulphuric low tide, coffee husk, medicinal herbs and a peppery yeast ester that rides the bitterness. Lighter and more refreshing than expected but still lots of awkward moments as well !

Samuel214 (1037) - SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2016
75 cl flaska på Belgobaren, Stockholm. Disig, mörkorange med vitt högt skum. Syrlig doft med något rökiga inslag och visst anar man lite chokladsötma och kakao i bakgrunden. Relativt fyllig kropp som dock försvinner snabbt. Syrligheten möts upp av sötma från kakaon. Ruskigt rolig och gör sig otippat bra.

75cl bottle. Hazy copper with thin white head. Caramel, yeast, grassy, citrus, spices, light chili and cocoa in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is bitter and funky with light cocoa notes. Overall, a very nice beer.

Pours a brown body with a none existent head. Very faint aroma. Sour and funky taste with a rather strange warm feel. More strange than interesting.

gunnar (8881) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 22, 2016
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat enjoyed at Aaserøy. Pours hazy nut brown with a small off white creamy head. Aroma of chocolate, chewy malts and yeast. Taste is light sweet yeasty, weak acidic peppers, weak chocolate in the finish, more weak chili, but overall a OK beer.

sjogro (3766) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2016
At Mrk’s. Bottle courtesy of Maakun. Amber colored beer with quick diminishing head. Sweet caramel malts, sweet roasted chili peppers, grassy, lemon, (lemon balm), honey, mushroom like mold. Quite sweet, light sour bend. Light carbonation, creamy feel, very spiced.

Maakun (5183) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2016
Bottle shared. Slight hazy copper with little clumps floating around. Lots of spices, caramel, sugary, cocoa, quite light chili, peppery yeast, lemon and lemon balm. Bit over medium sweet, light spicy, under medium bitter and a sour touch. Medium bodied. Quite weird but pretty decent.

kerenmk (4664) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 1, 2016
Bottle shared at a tasting at Alexey’s place. Thanks Euro Summer Secret Santa 2015. Hazy amber with a quickly dissolving white head. Funky aroma with a little chili and then chocolate. A little funky and bitter with delicate hints of chocolate in the mouth. Medium body, quite carbonated, slightly funky finish. Quite nice and far from what I had expected it to be - was sure it’d be stout.
