HaandBryggeriet Fyr og Flamme
De couleur ocre, cette bière mousseuse et pétillante présente des notes de caramel et de fruits jaunes pour le nez. Malts et sucres résiduels dominent en bouche, avec des houblons stridents et herbeux en fin de gorgée. Amertume importante. Une india pale de style east coast bien réussie.

HaandBryggeriet Nissebrygg
Slightly reddish caramel colour, hazy. Medium, beige head. Nose: Dark malt, gingerbread, pine firs, hay. Taste: Medium bodied, slightly sweet arrival with malt, caramel and a hint of pine resin. On the mid palate, although there is some hops bitterness, the relatively rich carbonation takes over the show. The exit is sweeter, with some burnt sweet malt and a slight, pleasant citrus acidity. The aftertaste again displays hops bitterness and with its resinous touch it’s quite refreshing and it cleans up the preceding sweeter elements to end this beer on a dry note. Interesting Christmas beer with an interesting taste curve, alternating between sweet, malty notes and dry, hoppy notes. With rich, salty food it gave a sweeter taste impression, while the hoppiness nicely rinced out the fat. Very impressive given it’s modest ABV (4.5%)!

Piwo pachnie naprawdę wybornie. Dużo nut drożdżowych, drewna, skóry. Wychodzi też stajnia. No po prostu mega. Jest też coś takiego delikatnie słodkiego...cynamon z jabłkiem. Hmmm może i cytryna. W smaku jest podobnie. Kwaśne, octowe, skórzane. Do tego stajnia, delikatna beczka, cytryna i zielone jabłko. Wysycenie średnie.

HaandBryggeriet Raspberry Export Stout
On tap at Bådin Ølfestival, Bodø. Pours a black colour with a beige head. Aroma of red berries, forest floor, oak, balsamico and slightly roasted. The flavour is similar with lots of berries and vinegar, coffee beans and ash in the background. Has a slick mouth feel, full-bodied and medium body. Lots of berries in this and less stout than expected.

HaandBryggeriet Odin’s Tipple
Odin’s Tipple comes as a bit of surprise in the current beer climate. Breweries are gradually trying to make Imperial Stouts into bigger behemoths and with more and more ingredients. Odin’s Tipple has a kind of purity to it. It’s a black beer with roasty, chocolaty, and coffee-like flavors. The result is something less exotic than many modern Stouts, but there’s also less room for error and the brewers’ talent is given a chance to shine. There’s something about these hearty, bitter, and straightforward Scandinavian Imperial Stouts that I can’t resist.

HaandBryggeriet Akevitt Porter (7%)
Bottle. Pours black with a small khaki head. Aroma has mostly dark chocolate, akvavit, some spiciness as well. Taste has dark chocolate, lots of roasted malt, slight coffee, akvavit, carum, slight woody notes an slight bitterness. Body is full, high but soft carbonation, smooth mouth feel. After taste is long lingering, a bit boozy and warming with chocolate and slight bitterness.

The barrel notes are mostly apparent in the aroma and at the end of the taste, nice that the carum shines through! It’s well balanced apart from the hot after taste which surprised me as the beer is only 7% strong. As always, a great offering from Haandbryggeriet.

Flaske. Gylden med fint hvitt skum. Aromaen er mild malt, fersken og litt frukt (eple). Smaken er ganske lik aromaen, men med litt mer tydelig maltsmak. Syrligheten er ikke overdrevet som på mange andre gose, men fint balansert med sødme og bitterhet. Dette er langt fra min favorittstil, men denne er skikkelig god.
