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.

Clear medium to dark black color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, light brown to beige head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, chocolate, oat notes.

50 cL bottle. Pours totally black and with a short lasting chocolate brown head. Aroma is roasted malt and chocolate. Flavour is light acidic to a roasted malt and chocolate flavour. Medium smooth mouthfeel from the oat but goes into an almost watery mouthfeel in the finish. Acidic roasted flavour in the finish with a light chocolate smoothness.

omhper (25108) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2004
Bottled. Black rich beige head. Very chocolatey with notes of coffee. Soft, gentle, velvetty mouthfeel and notes of "knäckebröd" (dry, hard , crispy, burnt bread). The body is medium to light, but the flavours fill your mouth. Warming, despite a low abv. Roasty, salty, coffee finish. A wonderful beer!!

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Black with and underlying reddish glow. Very small, creamy head. Lightly burned malty aroma. rather light-bodied, almost vaguely watery. Very malty flavours, roasted, slightly burned and perhaps a wee touch of smoke also. I miss some potency and fullness. 160905

Opaque black beer, short lived light brown head. Light palate. Tangy dark malt, soft and dry. Subtle peach and orange in the undertone, very subtle. Minerally dry finish. Not bad. A little brown bread and coffee in the finish.

Travlr (24734) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Draft at Churchkey. Black, grayish brown head. Aroma of milk chocolate, taste of carbonated espresso. Pretty decent.
