Phantom Lord is the offspring of somewhat confused parentage. In the way of stouts, it’s black as tar, with an opulent roast and chocolate notes. But it’s hopped like an American Style Pale Ale. Then fermented with English Ale yeast. All of which results in a splendidly complex array of deep, satisfying maltiness balanced with a fruity, resinous hop aroma and flavour. So it turned out alright in the end.
