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.

341ml bottle. Dark ruby body, small beige head with poor retention. Aroma of peat and smoked prunes, malt, old cheese, smoked sausages, autumn leaves. Taste of smoked cheese, sweet malt, caramel, smoked mackerel, floral. Fantastic smoked.

dresden (735) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 1, 2013
Dark clear ruby colored beer. Aroma is burning tires. Smoked taste is much lighter than aroma, nice light body with some biscuity malt. Interesting beer, don’t normally see so much smoke on such a light beer.

Whatup14 (600) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
Bouteille 341ml. Couleur acajou foncé semi-translucide, mousse beige évanescente. Arôme de feu de bois, malt sucré, fumée. Goût de malt caramel, fumée sans être trop puissant, cendre en arrière-goût. Carbonation moyenne, corps moyen.

Ferris (2041) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 5, 2013
Draft- Smokey with a bit of dark fruit. Dark clear amber with a decent beige head. Light smoke with a light malt roast and a hint of sourness to cut the sweetness. A nice sessionable smoked beer.

pumpkinhead2 (238) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2013
Bière rouge foncé, parfaitement limpide, bonne effervescence, surmontée d’un col beige, un peu mince, mais dense et mousseux. Arômes dominants de fumée, viande fumée, charbon de bois, avec en arrière-plan un peu de malt grillé. Beau nez assez intense et appétissant, mais il est définitivement tout en fumée. En bouche, c’est un peu mousseux, avec une rondeur intéressante. Encore au goût, c’est la fumée, viande fumée, charbon de bois qui dominent. On retrouve également un peu le malt grillé qui apporte des accents de noisettes et de sucre d’orge, et une certaine amertume de faible à modérée se pointe en finale. Personnellement, je ne suis pas persuadé que les saveurs sont bien intégrées les unes aux autres, et je trouve qu’autant la fumée, que le sucré et l’amertume semblent un peu artificiels. Une bonne bière honnête néanmoins.

pictoman (371) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 31, 2013
Poured from 341mL bottle. Clear medium brown with beige head. Predominantly smoked malt aroma with very mild hint of maple and caramel adding sweetness to it. Full smokey wood flavour, but not overbearing. Some mild smokey protein - perhaps smoked cheese. Very subtle caramel and hops. Medium body.

jredmond (5039) - Manhattan, New York, USA - FEB 15, 2014
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!
