COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We usually do not make compromises, but this is probably the exception. Norwegians are dead scared of dark beers. This is an attempt to show that there are gentle dark ales. As such Havre Stout is smooth and drinkable.

We think Havre Stout is good both with and in food. Try pairing it with a read meet dish, or give your vanilla icecream a small dash before serving. Recommended serving temperature 8°C/45°F.

11°P 20 IBU 4,5% ABV.

corkyrory66 (890) - BELGIUM - DEC 7, 2014
Bière noire de Grimstad en Norvège en bouteille de 50 cl et 4,5 % abv. Le niveau EBU est de 25 et non 20 comme indiqué sur le site. En plato, 11°. Couleur noir intense, totalement opaque. Bulles faibles, et faible nappage beige. Arômes de cappuccino, tiramisu, pointe de crème de marron. Superbe. 1ère bouche douce sur du café pur jus bu froid le matin. Arrière-bouche avec du malt torréfié et du chocolat noir 75 %. 2ème bouche à la texture très douce, où le café se fond mieux au malt. Arrière-bouche avec un peu de baies des bois et des myrtilles. 3ème sur un expresso intense, avec des baies de sureau. Arrière-bouche très liée. La longueur laisse la priorité à la douceur, malgré l’intensité du café. Les jambes sont lisses et groupées. La levure est douce et franche. L’alcool me laisse un peu perplexe. Certes, comme dit le brasseur Kjetil Jikiun (sic), des compromis ont été acceptés sur cette bière, mais tomber à ce point dans le niveau abv me paraît un peu excessif. La finale est agréable, sans vrai décollage. CONCLUSION : bière agréable, mais sans force réelle. Par contre, les touches gustatives très particulières et bien typées permettent certainement de faire quelque chose d’intéressant en food pairing… Avis aux amateurs de fourneau !!
