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.

Deep brown to black colored, tan creamy head, OK lasting good lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, strong vanilla bourbon, spicy. Taste is medium sweet roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla oaky bourbon, spicy, dry. Medium to full bodied, soft- carbonation, creamy. Hint of smoke, overall vanilla wins! On tap at ’t Antwaerps Bierhuiske. Excellent beer and bar!

Dit bier heeft een kleur die zich verhoudt tussen donkerbruin en zwart. De smaak is overwegend bitter: geroosterd mout. Er zit een duidelijke vanillelaag in. Je proeft dat er echte vanillepeulen gebruikt zijn. Verder is het bier niet heel complex.

Not sure the balance is quite right, but drinkable all the same. The smoke and vanilla burst through, and there is a nice level of toasted malt, with more subdued notes of coffee and chocolate. Keeps a tan head on top of very dark body right to the end.

sjogro (1908) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2015
Moet denken aan Emelisse Creme Brulee stout. Vanille, caramel, toffee, appelgebak, notig, in een mooie volle en gebalanceerde stout. Tasty! Backlog from 2015/02/16.

suurjuust (2589) - ESTONIA - DEC 5, 2015
BB December 2014. Black beer, medium tan head. Nose is smokey, almost peaty/tarry, roasty. Flavor is smoke and roast, malt, coffee hint and hops. Lingering bitter roast. Feels kind of watery, but that could be due to this being past it’s BB. Same goes for the fact that I can’t find any vanilla.

Bottle. Pours dark ruby with beige head. The head stays. Aroma is smpke, bacon, salt, malt. Flavor is sweet and bitter, roast, smoke, some salt, bacon, dark chocolate, and malt. Finish is roast bitter. Body is on the thin side, alcohol is well covered. Overall: very good.

alteregoo (671) - POLAND - DEC 3, 2015
Piana drobna, kremowa, jak na cappuccino. Barwa ciemno brązowa, mętna. Aromat delikatny, czuć po trochu szwajcarską czekoladę, kawę zbożową, wędzonkę i wanilię. W smaku kawa espresso na pierwszym planie, palone słodyziarno, kakao, w tle wanilia i dębina z kominka. W afterteasie tytoń i przypieczony karmel. Goryczka średnia, ziołowo palona. Nagazowanie niskie, drobne, dość pełne i lekko popiołowe w odczuciu. Kolejne bardzo wyważone, ułożone i szlachetne piwo z tego browaru. Niczego nie ma tu za dużo, ale wszystko wyraźnie zaznaczone. Wędzonka nie dominuje - delikatna w zapachu, ledwo wyczuwalna w smaku (dla mnie idealna), alkohol jako przyjemne "ciepełko" na podniebieniu. Klasa.
