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.

Very smooth. Smoked flavor is pleasant yet for me overwhelming a little the vanilla. Overall, a very good smoked stout.

Zwart bier met weing schuim. Smaak is licht bitter, rook achtig, chokolade, vanille. Erg goed, smaak blijft hang hangen.

Bottle. Nose is root beer, smoke, vanilla, chocolate, roast. Black adn shiny with a tall, bubbly head. Smoky flavor, vanilla sweetness, Very bitter finish from roast and hop. Thin body. Ok, but the vanilla is a but of a crutch.

Poured deep dark brown with a frothy beige head. Aroma of vanilla, roast malt, chocolate and dark fruit. Medium body, pretty smooth, flavour as the aroma. Would be improved with aging.

Deep dark color with gorgeous and creamy beige head, aromas of coffee, smoke and vanilla (obviously). In mouth, slightly bitter coffee flavor with lovely notes of vanilla. The smokiness is there but not overwhelming. Thin to medium-bodied. Great balance and very carefully crafted. Loved it.

Bottle at home, imported from Amsterdam, drunk, 21st February 15. Poured deep, dark hazelnut brown. Slight head, no lacing, the aroma is complex, quality vanilla comes comes through, some chocolate, coffee liquor. Taste is dry, lovely vanilla tones, well balanced, slight bitter hops. Palate is thin, more of a porter in my mind. Good beer.

BBE JUN 2016 - Pours dark brown, almost black with a smooth white head. Aroma of roasty malts, vanilla, hints of smoked leathery notes, oak and berries. Taste is roasty, malty and mildly smoky with hints of berries, leather, oak and vanilla. Finish is smooth, dry and slightly roasty with some hints of wood, oak and vanilla. Interesting.

66 cl bottle @ tiong, BBE 06/2016
Aroma has toffee, some licorice and hayish tones. Flavour has mild smoky tones, some licorice, coffee, hints of hay and salty licorice. Finishes with hops and some mint. Could have much more of those oak, smoke and vanilla. Not bad but uninteresting. There’s an English feeling here.
