Brasserie Fantome Fantome de Noel
Brasserie Fantome Fantome de Noel from a friend Mark that he picked up at Capone’s. The beer pours a dark golden-amber color with a frothy off-white colored head that leaves a bit of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of fig, raisin, lemon, hint of vinegar, and hay. The taste is lightly toasted malts with a hint of chocolate. Some raisin and fig does come out, but dissipates rather rapidly to a slightly sour flavor of vinegar, hay, and barnyard funk. The alcohol content is 10.0% ABV. The hint of chocolate in the background of the beer was great as it played well with the slight sourness. The slight hay dryness and lemon accents also were overly enjoyable, making this a multi-dimensional beer.
