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. 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.

Vells (1004) - Riga, LATVIA - AUG 1, 2015
Nose quite weak, but some vanilla and roast, taste gets much more interesting. Subtle roast, vanilla, dark choco, bit coffee, light smoked. Moderate sweetness with moderate bitterness. Quite smooth with bit dry finish. Nice, well balanced brew.

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.

SVD (892) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2015
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.

TBone (14175) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 29, 2015
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.
