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.

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.

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 (533) - 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.

Unde (366) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Almost black beer with slightly brown head and lacing. Syrup, dark chocolate, and some pine and earth aromas. Almost burned malts, syrupy sweet in the main taste then turning into grassy, earthly flavors in the end. And again, too thin body to back up the flavors. Otherwise decent stout.

Smooth, easy to drink, with some roastyness and hints of coffee. Nice mouthfeel. Suitable as your first stout.

Veldig svak aroma, og lukter merkelig bok nesten ingen ting. God smak, men hadde kledd ørlite grann mer sødme. Det hadde høynet denne for meg. Men en ganske god øl. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lowenbrau (1954) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 1, 2013
500ml bottle @Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. Pours black with little tan head, vanishing, poor head retention, poor lacing.Roasty, coffee, chickory, some "wet" aromas. Medium body, oily texture, average to high carbonation. Taste is coffee, roasty, watered down. Mild bitter. Dry and roasty aftertaste. More or less ok for its low abv, but not a sweet stout.

angel77 (983) - oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 23, 2013
Botella de 33 cl en el lupulo feroz. De color negro intenso sin nada de espuma aunque presenta en boca bastante gas. Sabores tostados y ahumados bastante contenidos y un sabor final a regalíz negro y algo amargo. No es una de las mejores nogne que he probado
