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.

Pours a beautiful dark thick body with a golden white lacing, looks truly delicious. Aroma of biscuits, chocolate, porridge, nuts and raspberry cheesecake. Weak taste of coffee, caramel, wet dog and butch. Looks better than it tastes. A bit boring, but would probably be a decent food beer.

In the aroma tones of dark chocolate, berry, "a leather belt," hints of biscuits. In the taste of smoked zhzhenost, solid berry acidity, a little fruit. The aftertaste zhzhenost becomes tastier, but too quickly lost, leaving only the sweet-and-drag on the sweetness.

0,5 bottle. The aroma is smoked malt. The taste is medium bitter with dark chocolate, roasted malt, oat and some liqourice. Pretty good for a 4.7 beer.

A great looking beer, but lacks character in aroma and flavour. A session stout, but nothing more.

Dark brown to black appearance with a nice brown head. Aroma is dark roasted malt, chocolate, cereal like and freshly ground oats. Nice coffee and dark chocolate aromas with some bitterness in the taste. The taste is quite smooth with lots of roasted malt character, some coffee and nuts in the background with a slightly bitter after-taste. Tobacco and smoke with some burnt notes, unfortunately the body of this beer is quite weak.

Nonshaugen (461) - Fetsund, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2015
Batch #1353, bottle. Nice hizz at he opening, foam is high in the bottle neck, but not "over the top". OK, this turned out to BE a bit over the top carbonated, but as expected the foam died down pretty fast in the glass. (Patience You must have, young padowan). It’s black, and it’s foamy, tan to light brown mocca coloured head. Aroma is dark, bitter chocolate, cocoa and coffee up front.. Same flavours in the taste, along with the quite heavy carbonation. I would say it’ has sweet dry bubbling mouthfeel. Not one of their best Outmeal Stout batches, so this rating may be a little unfair.

Aroma: ristet malt, kaffe. Lavt skum. God smak med brente toner. Kaffe. Smaken gir seg for fort. For tynn. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’ place. Thanks Stas & Max. Black with a tan ring. A little black pepper, phenol and some sweet oatmeal aroma, a little bitter, metallic and a little alcoholic taste. Medium body, roasty, soft carbonation and metallic finish.
