I can almost guarantee that it's the coals not being lit 100%, a not clean hookah, or the coals are bad.

Your coals aren't thuroughly lit!Not only does this taste terrible, but it is also very dangerous from a health standpoint!Be sure your coals are completely lit(glowing red) all the way thru on both sides and you'll be fine.That is of course, assuming your using coals that are intended for narghile smoking!

Exactly dude, Make sure they have a light white tint to them or glowing completely. Also don't be using BBQ Brickquetts, they will eventually kill and send you to the ER; whichever comes first.

that coal taste will taint a whole bowl too, so make sure it doesn't happen with any set of the coals, first or second or third, etc

Everyone else said it, but I will say one more time ..

"Let your coals FULLY Light, they should have a unified layer of ash over them"

Didn't see what brand you were using. Low quality coals can make any session sour. I bought a bag of hookah coals from an Arabic store and they had a wretched chemical smell all the way through. And these were naturals, or so the bag said.
