COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bouteille de 341 ml achetée aux Délires du Terroirs. Couleur brune avec reflet acajou, rougeâtre. Légère mousse en surface mais imposante dentelle sur les parois. Odeur de fumée très prononcé... un peu de malt rôti. Au goût j’ai trouvé que la fumée prenait vraiment toute la place, au point de complètement effacé le goût de ce qu’on mange en même temps ou encore des gorgées précédentes. J’imagine qu’avec un repas épicé ça doit vraiment être spécial. C’est pas vraiement un style de bière que j’apprécie mais c’est quand même intéressant d’en boire une de temps en temps.

Very well balanced. Great smokey flavours, chewy malt. Very long finish. So smooth you’d swear it was a lager, but it is top fermented.

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.

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 note. 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.

341ml bottle pours a medium amber color with a finger and a half of off-white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is smoke and hints of caramel. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness underneath a modest smoke with a grassy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. A nicely done smoked beer that is well balanced and not overdone.
