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.

Erasmus_ro (1661) - Alabama, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle, BBE 10/16. Pours a dark wooden brown with a very small, beige head. Mostly a ring around the edges. Aroma is roast smoke, earthiness, light sour, light vanilla. Later on the vanilla grows a whole lot stronger, dominating the aroma. The vanilla is very strong in the taste as well. There’s roast and smoke and some coffee, but the vanilla dominates. Too much so. The flavors feel apart, not together.

BobEvers (317) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2015
fles 66cl kleur: zwart met een kleine offwhte schuimkraag. Geur: gebrand hout, koffie Smaak: scherp prikkelend door koolzuur, gebrand mout, koffie. Toch een zachte smaak. Dat is eens wat anders dan de extreme brand/koffie smaken van stout. HEt enige minpuntje: ik mis de vanille.

Serapac (200) - CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 5, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown, medium beige head, very vivid carbonation. Aroma chocolate, wood, vanilla. Quite full body. Very (too?) sweet taste, raisins, vanilla again. Not bad, but too much on the sweet side for my liking, missing the more malty elements. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TET (1938) - FINLAND - JAN 18, 2015
A colablack beer with a big and light brown head. The nose has liquirice roastiness, some herbs and coffee. Taste is roasted with nice roughness, some smoke and liquirice, unfortunately no vanilla. Balanced and low sweetness. Medim bodied, balanced carbonation, easy to drink. Good and easy enjoyable beer, it would be nice to find also vanilla.
