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.

RichardGretton (4628) - Leicestershire, - JUL 17, 2013
Bottle. Black beer with a strong off white head. The aroma is lightly roasted with some sweetness, and the flavour has gentle bitterness with mellow coffee bitterness. Overall a nice but fairly mellow flavoured stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours black with a low off white head. Aromas of chocolate, roasted malt, roasted nuts, vanilla. Taste is roasted and chocolatey with a nicely balanced maltiness. Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation.

Vaahtoaa ihan pirusti, kolme kertaa piti kaataa tuoppiin. Savua, kahvia ja kirpeyttä aistittavissa muuten vetisessä stoutissa.

Not so tough as expected from the look. The taste, aroma and palate was lower than we would like it to be ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tmrmwel (1720) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2016
Bottle, batch 1080-c. Pours black, with a big creamy mocha head. Aroma is dark roasted malts with coffee and cocoa, as well as some burned wood. Medium body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is roasted malts with bread, notes of cocoa and dark fruits, as well as some earthy, astringent berry notes.

ferryman72 (53) - NORWAY - JAN 18, 2016
Black with no head. Very thick, like syrup, when pouring. Plenty of sediments. Aroma of biscuits, berries and malt. Weak taste of chocolate, coffee, perhaps caramel. Very little complexity, short aftertaste. Not impressed.

Patjeadam (149) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2015
If you expect a smooth bold stout, you will not expect the soury aspect this one has. It is a very drinkable one, creamy, little bit sour red fruits, light roasted malts, nice malty aftertaste. A special light beautiful stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

StoutWolf (3) - Tromsø, California, USA - DEC 10, 2015 does not count
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.

DoctorHU (413) - UKRAINE - NOV 24, 2015
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.
