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.

Vanilie în cafea rece, cam gol dacă nu apos, hamei ierbos. Corp băubil dar în dauna corpului.

Bosskie (587) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2015
Pitch black with a nice foamy white head. Nice bubble columns. Smell is milk chocolate sweetness and subtle vanilla balanced nicely against a smokey bbq bitterness. Subtle roastednuts, liquorice and spices. Taste starts with a big bitter fizz, gets overwhelmed by sweetness - milk chocolate and dark fruit, and finishes with an astringent but refreshing flavour explosion. Beautiful beer, masterfully balanced.

Bottle at home, black beer with small head, aroma is smoke, and some vanilla, taste a dry smokey flavor with some vanilla, and a hint of liquorice, for a smoked beer its quite nice.

Bottled 330ml (Saveur)
Dark brown color, steady small beige head. Smoke and vanilla are not very strong in the nose, mainly some toasted, sweet licorice notes. Medium-bodied, soft palate. Flavor has interesting combination of licorice, vanilla and light smoke. Vanilla especially is working here very well. Some roast in the aftertaste. Smooth stout.

Hamirubi (310) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2015
15cl sample from bottle at the Leuven Innovation Beer Festival (25 V 2015). This foreign stout is depicted as a ’smoked vanilla stout’. A fair description, although the vanilla hints are very subtle - to say at least. A roasted nose comes from the bitter black stout with low beige head. Another flavour is caramel, but that’s probably the vanilla beans ’talking’. The taste - lovely bitter - hints at coockie, chocolate, fondant. Often subtle, yet nicely complex.
