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. 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.

Bottle. Good stuff, smoky spiciness, bit meaty, lots of roast, with little bit of sweetness at the end but subtle. Almost lemon sherbert like.

Habanero (2445) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2014
Bottled. Pours black with a small, tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla notes and smoke. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and with some bitterness. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A very nice stout.

Juritsu (22) - - JUN 6, 2014
Subtle vanilla aroma, pours a very dark Brown with a light head. Subtle taste with a hint of vanilla, with a strong wood aftertaste with a hint of smoke. Very full beer with a complex taste. Every sip brings a different experience.

bartlebier (1485) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2014
65cl bottle shared@1st Freiburg Tri-state tasting, chocolate mousse pairing. Very appealing fluffy chestnut brown pour with mocha head. Some vanilla, beechwood, whipped up roast in the nose, with a very fresh, yeast-enhanced feel to it, almost as of a Wit. More yeast dryness in the taste provides that trademark DvdK subtlety, meshing in roast, whisps of ash smoke, dark chocolate and vanilla without shooting them onto the palate. Yeast-astringent finish, almost some tartness. Inwardly brimming with character, rather than bombastically exploding with adjuncts.

jaghana (3700) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle 65cl @ 1st RB DE-CH-F Tasting. A dark beer with good head. Nose is peated and dark coffee like. Aroma is very smoked, dark chocolate dominant. Ashes touch, red fruits notes, long dark chocolate, light smoked notes.

MrW (395) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2014
Sample on ZBF’14 Poured black, with a lacing white head. Aroma of dried sausage, smoked meat, ham, some coffee. Taste had more chocolate, burned malt, vanilla, more bitter than expected. Long malty finish, a bit smokey, light bitter.

22oz bomber, the first time I’ve seen a Belgian beer in a straightforward bomber. Opaque brown-black body. Foamy off-white beige head. Oily malt tones, nice smoky aftertaste. Steady smoke, a touch of wheat, chocolate, vanilla. Doesn’t really have that Belgian body or effervescence, but the flavor is very nice. Kind of like a smoky porter more than a stout. More in line with recent Scandinavian beers than Belgians. Not a very big yeast flavor. Very enjoyable, rich and richer as you sip.
