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.

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.

Hopverdju (464) - BELGIUM - APR 17, 2016
Donkerbruin tot zwart bier met bruine romige schuimkraag. Geur: rook, voor mij eerder turf dan steenkool, geroosterde granen, slechts weinig vanille en ietwat chocolade. Smaak: geroosterde moutbitterheid, rood fruit, rook. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: droog bitter, zoetig.
