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.

TET (1910) - 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.

ClubGonzo (4450) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours a cloudy near-black body with a small off-white head. Nose is licorice, vanilla, smoked wood, coffee and hints of chocolate, grains and caramel. Taste is vanilla, coffee, wheat, burnt wood, bready grains, dark chocolate and hints of bitter herbs. Medium body and carbonation, dry finish. Quite subtle and roasty stout with noticeable vanilla additions, not bad at all.

Drank during tasting in Molenhoek with Rik, Bram, tijs, thierry, and Lennart. Liked it. Dark beer. Taste is balanced and rich. Hints of coffee, vanilla and smoked. Beer is a bit thin though. Taste is not very compelling.

adster (482) - HUNGARY - NOV 7, 2014
Karizmatikus testtel csobog elő az üvegéből ez a tojásfehér habot csiholó, telt színű főzet, melynek aromája a vanília képét leginkább tejszínes, krémes illata által idézi meg, egy sejtelmes vaníliás vonulat elegáns körvonalai, parfümös sziluettje azonban rendre megjelenik a kompozícióban. Selymes kortyai igazán pihentetőek, a gabonás jegyek elegánsan keverednek a vanília édeskés és a füst morcos karakterével. Egy kevés komló jelenléte zárja az ízhatást, összességében egy nagyszerűen kiegyensúlyozott, igen finom és elegáns szerkezet megtestesülésének lehetünk tanúi.
