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 from Malting Pot
Dark color, almost black; creamy beige head. Light roasted malt aroma. Roasted malt flavor, a bit creamy; does it have some some smoke? Maybe.
Quite good.

Saeglopur (1117) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - AUG 24, 2015
660 ml bottle shared by Werckmeister, thanks!
Dark brown-copper body, with a big frothy, lacing, beige head.
Aroma of smoked wood, caramel, dark fruits, some chocolate, subtle vanilla.
Tastes of smoke, wood, cocoa, caramel, some coffee, dark fruits.
Medium, a bit creamy mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes smokey, roasty, also sweet, quite dry, wooden, a bit fruity.

Very nice. Quite complex and well balanced, with interesting smoke and sweet notes. Overall a pretty unique Foreign Stout, with a lot of character, but not among my favourite beers of this style.

0,66 l pullo @ kotimaistelu Wien. Samea tummanruskea. Tuoksussa paahteista mallasta, riistaisuutta, aavistus vaniljaa. Vähän turhan mieto tuoksu. Maussa paahteista mallasta, humalaa, jotenkin paksua, vaniljaa.
