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.

Whilst arguing fruitlessly with a company over the phone over their defective and substandard product, I consumed this and was able to remain calm and did not reach thru the phone to throttle the idiotic momos. They even had the Bravosian swagger to state that they stood behind their product 100%...but stated to me that the problem in front of me is and I quote "impossible." F’n Momos all of them. Whew....now that I’ve got that out of my system...... Bottle in trade from the Illustrious and polite MartinT. Bright and crisp amber-ruby in the glass with a thin ring of foam about the edges. Light nose of smoke and peat. Smoke and peat are multiplied at first taste. Brisket in center of it all. Spotty small lacing left behind after quaffing. Other than that, no legs whatsoever. Calming and enjoyable without a meal. This brewery continues to impress.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2014 Dégustation au Marché des Brasseurs. Belle robe ambrée surmontée d’un mince col beige peu durable. Arome de fumée prononcé qui n’est pas trahi par le gout sucré/fumé. Très longue en bouche, elle accompage très bien les pepperettes et autres viandes épicées.

Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des notes de malt fumé. Saveurs: En bouche, c’est un corps moyen. Au goût, c’est des saveurs de malt fumé. De durée moyenne, il n’y a aucune effervescence, ni amertume. Fiche technique Style: Bière fumée Format: 341 ml Taux d?alcool : 5,4%

Personnellement, j’ai trouvé que ça goutait le jambon fumé. J’ai essayé le produit froid et chaud et je dirais qu’il est « meilleur » à une température plus chaude. Je n’ai pas trouvé cette bière bonne du tout, mais la plupart des gens l’aiment bien, c’est une question de goût, moi j’ai trouvé son odeur et son goût insupportable. Personnally, it tastes like smoked ham. I tried the beverage cold and warm and I’d say it is « better » at a warmer temperature. This beer didn’t taste good for me, it’s a question of preferences, I found the aroma and the taste nasty.

Pours a clear brown with a thin white head that offers some lacing. Nose is quite simply of smoke, I couldn’t smell anything else at least. Taste is lightly sweet but also has som light acidity, offers some nice nutty and smokey flavors. Body is light to medium, carbonation low and finish is lightly bitter. Not bad but a far cry from Dieu du Ciel’s best.

Minderbinder (1795) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2014
Bottle 341ml. Pours clear brown with low beige head. Aroma is of smoke, malt, some hints of burnt caramel. Taste is of smoke, some bitterness, salt, acidity. Palate: Light-medium body. Soft carbonation. Overall: Not too good. Not awfull either, it’s just that I don’t really enjoy that kind of brew.

Draft at Dieu du Ciel with Linh, Minh and Angela. Pours a deep amber red body with light white lacing. Aroma is rubber, bacon and band aids. Mouthfeel is medium with the bandaid character still present unfortunately with flavors of burnt plastic and meat.

Un vrai coup de coeur de l’année 2013 pour ma part. J’adore les bières fumées alors j’ai été comblé par cette bière qui goûte le jambon fumé. Les saveurs de charbon fumée et de bois sont excellents en bouche. Presque tout ce qui est recherché pour ma part dans une bière fumée s’y retrouve. Vraiment je suis en amour!

Cuivrée/rougeâtre, mousse de couleur crème. Nez très agréable de fumé. Goût léger de boucane, malt grillé et de caramel. Mince en bouche et une très légère amertume est perceptible. Je ne peux pas comparer avec d’autres du même style, mais belle rauchbier!
