COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Halvor India Brown Ale is brewed to commemorate Halvors 10-year anniversary as a bartender at Henrik l & Vinstove. What better way of doing this than getting your very own beer? A dark and titillating brown ale with loads of American hops and some dark Muscovado sugar to dry it out. A nice one, indeed

Smells like cream fudge, smørbukk:) feels like saturday night 20 yrs ago. Takes me back to my childhood. The taste brings me back to my adult me, sweetness of the sugar is the first to hit the palate. Then suddenly my tastebuds are attacked by hops and bitterness! A perfect match for a sweet tooth and hop head. Go ABC! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yngwie (16763) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2014
On tap at Henriks. Its an almost clear one, dark brown in color, and with a dense, beige head leaving lacings. Roasted aroma with nuts, bread and some grassy, piney hops. Roasted flavor with some chocolate and a nice hoppy bitterness. Full body, creamy on the palate. Roasted malts, coffee, hoppy bitterness and some chocolate in the end. Tasteful and nice, and easy drinkable. 140615

Fruktig duft, noe lakris og vanilje. Dyp sort farge. Tykt brunt skum. Fruktig smak med en anelse vanilje i ettersmalen.

MartinT (9617) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Iodine and grassy bitterness subvert earthen roast and citrusy fruitiness in this puzzling India Brown Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy sheet of foam tops the dark brown.
-Dont know if the upfront iodine character comes from an excessive use of peated malts, but if it doesnt... then theres a serious issue with this batch.
-Mild caramel is found under the roastiness.
-Mouthfeel is beautifully creamy and smooth.

On tap at Henrik Ol & Vinstove.
