COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Superb dry stout with vanilla and smoke notes. Brewed with a portion of Weyermann Oak Smoked Wheat Malt, and whole Madagascar and Réunion vanilla beans that have been added twice during the brewing and maturation process, for extra complexity.
This ensures ’Charbon’ is a very pleasantly drinkable dry stout, with an interesting aroma and flavour to treat the real beer enthusiasts.

Bottle courtesy of rlgk. Pours very dark brown with a small frothy goldenish brownish beige head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty with roasted malts, sweet dark bread, St Johns wort, bitter orange zest, caramel, dark roast coffee, milk chocolate and hints of smoke and burnt wood. Taste is bitter, spicy and malty with toasted malts, sweet dark bread, charred wood, black pepper corns, St Johns wort, caraway, bitter chocolate, watered down dark roast coffee, cookie dough, hay and hints of smoke. Mouthfeel is soft, round, velvety and medium to full bodied. Finish is bitter with oatmeal cookies, toasted malts, sweet dark bread, hay, cocoa powder, smoke and dark roast coffee. Very soft and quite good...

ShivanDragon (1264) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2013
fles 660ml, zwart met kleine bruine kraag
aroma: mooi en vooral lekker aroma van chocolade, koffie, gebrande-, geroosterde en gerookte mouten, vanille
smaken: mooie volle moutsmaken (gebrande-, geroosterde- en iets gerookte mouten), lichte vanille, laurier, matig/redelijk bitter, matig zoet, ietwat droog kalkachtig’s
laag co2, redelijke body, zacht tot romig mondgevoel, blijft redelijk lang bittertje hangen in de afdronk, maar al met al een lekkere dry stout !

BeerBaboon (1485) - FINLAND - NOV 23, 2013
Pours black with light beige head. Aroma is roasted malt and smoke. Flavour is roasted, almost burnt malt, smoke and a bit of fireplace. I’m not saying that this is bad, I quite like the burnt malt thing sometimes. But this is supposed to be a vanilla stout and I just can’t find the vanilla.

erickok (3173) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - OCT 27, 2013
Black bodied, stable beige head. Interesting aromatic mix of lightly smoked malts (more boubon like than rough bacon) with a definite vanilla presence. Smooth malt start, with a more pronounced citriccy hop bitterness towards the end. Warming, even at the moderate abv, which I really like. In between a sipper and a easy drinker, but for once that doesn’t mean the worst of two world, but the best. Really liked this! (660cl bottle from trade with Countbeer, thanks!)

Tasting @ Voldby. Ikke så meget vanillie smag. Stærk lugt af alkohol og røget. Smager meget af røg.

juanenka (242) - valladolid, SPAIN - OCT 23, 2013
Botella. Buena presencia negra con corona beige duradera y carbónico justo. Aroma a maltas torrefactas y especias. En boca es seca y cafetosa con un toque especiado que recuerda a la vainilla y frutos secos con un final largo ligeramente alcohólico y seco.
