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.

IluvatarMilan (282) - Greater London, - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle. Mediocre aroma, bit too thin but an otherwise good beer. Not one for sipping though. A firm sip reveals a nice robust smoky stout, encircled by a fine whimpse of vanilla.

dysenteri (130) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle. Black with beige head. Coffe, lots of vanilla aroma. Ashy, smoky, malty. Smokey flavones, nice vanilla hints under it all. Neat and balanced beer.

KoNrRiI (1218) - Århus, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2016

0.33 bottle.
A very dark brown color and a huge, creamy, tanned head. Aroma of wood, ash, smoked malts, latte, and a tiny hint of dark fruits. Taste is very woody, vanilla is introduced quite markedly, fruits disappear but coffee remains. A full body, a creamy texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is long and even more vanilla-like. Overall the beer is great; it gets tedious after a while but the initial surprise is nice.

martin00sr (2752) - Haderslev, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2016 Bottle. Black with fluffy beige head. Aroma has roasted malt, light smoke, coffee and vanilla. Smooth mouthfeel. Mild roasted malt and slightly piney bitterness, some sweetness. Very nice.

Enteogenisk (152) - Bålsta, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2016
Bottle in wine glass. Pours with quite a large head and the aroma isn’t mind blowing which is then echoed by the taste. Has a nice caramel note but I’d want more smoke and vanilla from a smoked vanilla stout.

CaptainTilven (161) - Nancy, FRANCE - AUG 17, 2016
Dégustée à température de 12,2°C à 15,5°C. Corps marron extrêmement sombre couronné d’une mousse beige rosée somptueuse : fine, serrée, totalement persistante, à l’allure de meringue. Arômes de café, malt, tourbe, whisky, agrémentés d’une fraîcheur végétale et d’une vanille très subtile, et aussi du boisé et du charbon. Saveurs identiques, complexes. Bière très élégante, pleine de finesse et de caractère. Un stout velouté et charpenté. C’est très, très bon.

guzgorog (705) - FRANCE - JUL 14, 2016
Robe brune foncée, presque noire. magnifique mousse haute et crémeuse, couleur café crème, très belle tenue. Nez vanille et capuccino. L’attaque est sur la vanille, le café et le chocolat, la finale sur l’amertume de houblons épicés et une peite pointe de fumée. La carbo est très bonne, le corps crémeux, légèrement sucrée, très légèrement astringence. Superbe bière, un vrai régal, l’apport de vanille est très présent mais malgré tout bien harmonieux et équilibré, l’intérêt du malt fumé me semble moins évident et pertinent mais ne gache rien, un vrai régal !
