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 (4720) - 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

DraftDodger (1274) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2017
Copenhagen 21/2 2017. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Dark lavel with the charanceristic "Ø" in front of what looks like an sunrise partially drowned in oatmeal. Pours opaque dark brown with beige head. Settles as paper thin layer of foam. Aroma is pretty sweet. Brown sugar, milk chocolate, caramel and milk gone (slightly) sour. Medium carbonation and surprisingly thin palate. Flavor is a little bit more balanced. Medium sweetness partly balanced by medium to light bitterness. Quite thin and light stout. Quite generic. Could use a little bit more character.

Miły posmak tytoniu. Trochę puste. Moje pierwsze zetknięcie z owsianką raczej rozczarowuje.

dnicolaescu (2339) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - FEB 4, 2017
BOTTLE 50 CL. Opaque black, espresso head. The aroma is mostly chocolate cake, slightly sweet and oily roasty nuttiness. The taste is chocolate cookies, a bit too thin, with a somewhat harsh bitterness with notes of overly roast walnuts.

Just as the description says it is a nice and gentle Stout. Not too expressive but decent enough.

R4N5H (997) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2016
50cl bottle picked up at De Bierkoning, Amsterdam and poured into a snifter on 20-Dec-2016. Dark brown colour with a thick beige coloured head which disappears pretty quickly. Aroma of cocao nibs, coffee, caramel and malt. Medium body and carbonation. Taste of chocolate, coffee and malt with a little toffee sweetness. Light sour with a mild bittersweet finish. Good balance, and a nice stout.

Wygląd: czarne, nieprzejrzyste, piana beżowa, niezbyt obfita. Aromat: trochę kawy i czekolady, po ogrzaniu pojawiają się nuty rozpuszczalnika. Smak: kawa, czekolada i dość wyczuwalny popiół.

Bottle at home. Pours black with small tan head. Aroma is roasty malts. Taste is a bit watery roasted malt and coffee. Not bad not that good.
