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.

Derbeth (309) - Kraków, POLAND - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle; paired with food as the label suggests ;) Aroma begins with very intensive aroma of coffee, but after a while the beer feels quite gentle, showing some dark chocolate, a little bit of hops. Lightly sour, slight bitterness. Black colour with brown head. Surprisingly thin texture. The beer is ok, but it could be more intensive.

k92488 (255) - NORWAY - FEB 15, 2014
Mørk med brunt skum som forsvant raskt. Lukter sjokolade, havre og kaffe og litt brent. Smaker sjokolade og malt. Munnfølelse myk.

Holmen2 (866) - NORWAY - JAN 26, 2014
Batch 887B. Best before 05.11.13. A geysir of foam until bottle was totally empty. Dark brown with brown head. Fizzy and thin mouthfeel. Modest aroma of dark malts and green apples. Similar taste. Short aftertaste. Probably (hopefully) bottle fault.

Frode (230) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 23, 2014
Bottle 50 cl.
Pours black with a medium dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and oats. Ratter sweet, and medium bitter in the finish. Good mouth feel. Maybe a bit on the lively side.

IPAgutten79 (507) - Skui, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2014 Svart med lavt espressofarget skum. Lun søtlig aroma av mild kaffe, mild sjokolade og ristet malt. Behagelig, men ikke spesielt utfordrende smak av malt og mild kaffe. Kunne godt hatt noe mere sødme i smaken. Mildt bitter med en god ettersmak. Medium konsistens.
