This shimmering gold amber coloured beer has a light, smoked malt aroma. It’s well-rounded, with a great taste of malts and with a hint of sweetness. The smoky taste is quite dominant at each new draught. An original and notable beer, La Charbonnière is a house specialty.

Really interesting smoked beer, the aroma is quite light, but then a real mouthful of smoke, but then a cleansing finish.

Great easy sipping rauch. The pour is a muddled amber with a finger of dense beige head. The nose is firstly smoky and lightly roasted with nutty and toasted malt aromas. The smoke is emphasised well without being over the top. A mild sweet malt in the middle with notes of caramel, toffee, nuts and bready notes. The smoke is moderate with a nice character that blends well with the malty flavours. Overall, a great smoked brew.

Yet another interesting take by these guys. Pour is a beautiful mahogany colour with a trace of fizz that disappears quickly. Nose is heavy smoke, wood, sweet fruit, caramel and a bit of earth. Taste is sweet malt at first, then the smoke sort of wafts in and lingers through the end. There’s a pleasant hint of bitter dryness on the finish, too. Definitely not a session beer, but damn drinkable on a crisp fall night.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2014 Pours a clear reddish copper with a small dull white head and some lace. Aroma is peat, smoke and earthy. Flavour is peat, smoke, mild malty sweetness, faint bitterness and some earthy notes. Alright well I love peat and smoked malt beers so I?m definitely a fan.

Very smoky and meaty aroma, unfortunately it reminded me a lot of the wet all meat purina kitty chow I give my cats sometimes as a treat. Taste was a lot better than the smell. Nice smoky malty flavour.

Clear bright red - amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and dry and a little crisp. Mild minerals. Thin malts, a little lactose like sweetness. Contrasting smoke, mild and not acrid. Touch of dried fruits and even a whisper of sour fruits before a semi dry finish. Fairly well joined up if a tad too dry.
