3/5  rDev -21.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - Gold brown opaque body, white small head. Many, many floaties visible.
S - Sweet barnyard aromas, and, surprisingly, no chocoate.
T - Light chocolate flavor underlying the fine maltiness. Low bitterness, no sweetness. Banana peel and smoke.
M - Small amounts of carbonation and medium body.
D - Not much of the harder to drink flavors typically found in Fantome brews. For a Fantome, this has to have a 5 for drinkability. (430 characters)

4.2/5  rDev +9.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Hazy orange/amber body with a fluffy white head; bits of lacing

Smell: All kinds of things going on ranging from yeasty to herbal (coriander/bananas) to light chocolate malt

Taste: Very unusual! On top of all the individualistic Belgian flavors that are apparent on the nose, there is an overiding characteristic of malted milk; not the dark chocolate that you taste in a stout but the taste of Ovaltine

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel and considerable carbonation

Drinkability: Unforgetable, but not something I would want everyday; one of the more individualistic tasting beers I have come across (639 characters)
