A: deep brown - virtually black; no hint of ruby accents; 1+ finger medium brown head that receded to a thin, uneven cap; very nice, long lasing lacing;

S: deeply roasted grains with vanilla; chocolate in the background;

T: deeply roasted grains through mid-palate; then vanilla comes in to balance that; don't really get any chocolate until well after the swallow; virtually no bitterness;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: very nice; would pair well with a chocolate dessert;

LOOK: Draught into a 16 oz. shaker. Dark dark nutty brown, almost black. Two fingers of creamy tan head.

SMELL: Brown sugar and roasted malts.

TASTE: Typical roasted malt stout flavor. Oddly, the stand-out thing is that it's NOT washed out with coffee or chocolate notes.

FEEL: Full-bodied and a little on the chewy-thick side.

Roasty, with excellent coffee flavors clear through to the linger. One of my favorites.

I had no idea on what to expect from this stout. Just the name, the famous, or should say infamous Phantom punch by Alli!
I love my stouts and I did enjoy this.
It may not be as rich and creaming as some of the other 'big' guys, but this came close in all other aspects.
I could not detect any coffee or chocolate overtones here.
The price is right, the taste is good, I would love to hear its name over and over. The Phantom ,, the punch that rocked the world.
Try it,
