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.

Has great aroma of chocolate, coffee and dark tanned malts. It’s pitch black, non-transparent, with massive beige head. In taste it’s a bit sour, from coffee, it leaves great bitter aftertaste, but it’s rather delicate and smooth. The beer itself is not smooth so much though. There is no sweetness in it at all, there is no way to guess it’s oatmeal stout. It’s typical, orthodox dry stout. Watery, flat and drinkable.

Poured deep dark brown with a small beige ring. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee and dark fruit. Light body, flavour as the aroma, light liquorice.

Draft @ beer temple. Body of sweet malt, with some notes of coffee and milky cacao. Notes of vanilla and a spicey touch. Very nice.

Pinball (11932) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2014
bottle from the beer shop at viktoriagade. very dark brown, brown head that soon dissapears. dusty aroma, hard roasted malts, licorice, dark chocolate. flavor is very nice, light, hard roasted malts, bitterness from hops, but not at all in the way , good balance, reminds me slightly of the way a very well brewed schwarzbier would taste, but has a little bit more sweet stoutish notes. super drinkable, great job.

Mooie zwarte kleur met een volle goud bruine kraag. Ruikt gebrand, koffie, vanille. Smaakt koffie, vanille en gebrand. Iets bitter, tikkeltje dun.

Bottle from Craft. This one was surprisingly thin in the body. Some nice notes of roasted malts. It was easy to drink, but just missing something to give it that WOW factor.

Drunk 09/08/14 at the end of the night wi cam. day of sanding done, we had this on the balcony with the bacon stout. it pours black with a tan head. aroma of fresh coffee, vanilla, chocolate sauce. tastes pretty weird. its super sweet right away. toffee, raisins, coffee. then theres just a fuzzy mouthfeel with a slightly sour bitter aftertaste. like all the good malty flavour was missing from the middle. felt thin and without depth which is a shame. makes me wanna try more sweet stouts tho

Bottle shared with McTapps. Dark and strong with some barley, roasted malt, toast and earth. Thick but quite easy drinkable with a smooth end.
