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.

Poured from 330ml bottle into snifter glass. Lovely brown-black apperance with a slight red hue. Small-to-medium creamy head that falls away quickly. Aroma is huge, smoke smoke bacon smoke...beautiful! "Campfire" is a good interpretation of this aroma. The taste continues the big smokey bacon character, along with some caramel and roasted malts. The finish is relatively short with some spice. It is quite light in the mouth with a light body. It lacks some depth but is still plenty drinkable and very interesting because of the way the smoke works throughout the beer.

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 (1693) - 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!

simardsam (119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
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!

dresden (809) - 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.
