    I never thought that you would be able to put chocolate and saison together....but you can in Belgium. The beer pours a light brown colour, murky, with no head. The aroma is yeasty, funky, with only a slight hint of chocolate. The flavour is very tart fruit, swampy, and funk. Interesting.

    Bottled. Reddish brown colour with a small white head. Aroma is very fruity with some slight acidic notes. Also a bunch of barnyard, earth and spices. Flavour is very sour fruits with some rather acidic notes also. Some spices, earth and grass also. I don't find any chocolate in this one, but oh well, it's twisted in a Fantomeian way.

    Pours a very hazy, dried apricot color, with a fluffy two finger head. The foam settles slowly to a thick cap, that lasts throughout the entire beer, and leaves a thick sheeting of lace. Smell; this has the typical Fantome funkiness to it, with some caramel malts and a little bit of chocolate, but it's a little hard to pick out. I can't really detect the peppers at all in the aroma. Taste; starts off with a bit of the farmhouse funk you expect in a saison, with a little vinegar, slightly sour and a little herbal. In the middle the sweet malts make an appearance, with just some hints of the peppers. The chocolate shows up in the finish just when I think there isn't anything left. Very interesting, and surprisingly refreshing. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a fairly creamy carbonation. Drinkability is really good. I picked this up on the recommendation of bditty187, and I'm glad that I did. I'm definitely going to pick up more of this one.

    Poured a amber color with good head and good lacing. Aroma was of citrus and pepper. Flavor was of citrus mostly nice pepper flavor in there. From the name i expected chocolate but got none. Okay beer but not great.

    An interesting creation, although there is something to be said for the clean and crisp straight saison. Bottle cork popped with a loud and strong pop. The pour was nice, cloudy, amberish color, generous initial head (not ridiculous, though), great lacing. The araom was strong peppers, some citrus, sublte cocoa (probably only because I was looking for it, per the beer name). The flavor followed suit a little sour citrus up front, light cocoa (not chocolate or dominating, very nicely done) flavors, and the typical dry peppery finish that is the hallmark of Fantome productions. Did not specifically note any "chilli" peppers, seemed more like black pepper. The finish was a little acidic and dry at the same time, a nice selection for the middle of the tasting lineup.

    Cloudy orange with grey hints. Low creamy white head. Wet grass, soices, almond, tart pears, sweat and yeast in the aroma. Fairly light flavour (compared to other Fantômes) of funky yeast, almond, all-spice and cocoa. Stronger notes of cocoa-powder in the finish along with nut-shels, yeast and spices.

    Bottle: Poured a dirty beige color ale with a medium foamy head with great retention. Aroma of spicy pepper, funky yeast and floral malt is well balance and typical of Fantome. Taste is quite spicy with a faint funky ending. Chocolate is very hard to distinguish. Body is about average for the style and alcohol is sensible to some degree. Not bad but I guess I am always expecting greatness form this brewer.

    This saison pours a light orange brown color from a corked and capped 750ml bottle. Large sized fluffy white foamy head. Aroma is malty, yeasty and estery, Some chili and chocolate, with some barnyard and horse blanket. A medium bodied saison. Malts are bready and chocolaty. Touch herbal. Nice balance of chocolate and chili is reminiscent of a mole sauce. It’s a touch spicy and not that sweet. Nice lively carbonation. Crisp and light. There is some sweetness at the finish, but for the most part it finishes fairly dry. Hides the alcohol well. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

    This beer is much paler than I expected and the chocolate is much less of a factor in the aroma or flavor than I expected. The aroma has that funky yeast character common in most of the Fantome beers (brett perhaps given that I get a similar aroma from other brett beers). As the beer warms I start to pick up a hint of the chile used. Only later towards the end of my glass do I start to pick up the cocoa in the finish. An amazing piece of subtlety in spicing.

    Pours with a golden orange body topped by a thin head with some lacing. It’s sweet yet bitter and grassy with a bitter, bakers chocolate note and a flowery note. Medium bodied, dry and slighty smooth.
