Off white fluffy head stayed on a copper coloured body. Malty, hoppy aroma. Medium bodied, clean on the palate. Dry on the aft. Also it’s quite thin do the back. Malts to the fore & bitter hoppy tastes. Lots of citrus & grapefruit & resin flavours.

HaandBryggeriet Raspberry Export Stout
Fra flaske. Svart med fint skum. Aromaen er malt, lakris og litt røsted. I smaken kommer de syrlige bringebærene flott fram. Dette var spennende og fruktigheten passer fint inn i denne her. Et bra Haandtverk!

Aromat kawy i czekolady, silny, przyjemny. Czarne, smoliste i nieprzejrzyste, piękna, utrzymująca się chwilę ponad centymetrowa warstwa piany. Smak: Słodkie, aksamitne, jest kawa, czekolada, kakao, praliny, suszone owoce. Lekka kwaskowatość i duża goryczka wyrażająca się w kawowości i paloności. Słodycz dobrze kontrowana przez goryczkę, piwo bardzo dobrze zbalansowane. Sporo ciała, alkohol ukryty. Dobry RIS

HaandBryggeriet Fatlagret Porter (Akevitt Porter)
I det närmaste svart med litet brunt skum som lägger sig snabbt. I doften finns mörkt bröd, mörk choklad, lite kaffe, dadlar och lite fatton. Smaken är fyllig med maltsötma, dadlar och fikon, mörkt bröd, mörk choklad, aningen lakrits, på slutet kommer kaffebeska och lite strävhet från fatet. En riktigt bra porter med behaglig sötma.

Bottle. A- Anise, smoke, leather, roasty, spuce, campfire. A- Black color, dark liquid, brown head. T- Smoke, char, roasty, tobacco, anise, juniper. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, complex finish. O- Really interesting stuff. Not sure what aquavit tastes like but it’s definitely in here because there are flavors I don’t recognize. Almost boarderline smoked. Interesting for sure and almost overbearing. Sorta reminded me of a scotch. Great stuff just one of a kind for sure.

HaandBryggeriet Fatlagret Porter (Akevitt Porter)
Black with a thin but presistent light brown head. Really nice oak aroma that blends well with the residual roasted malt. Very well balanced taste with a nice smoky finish. I can also feel the akevitt coming through. Good mouthfeel and a really nice beer overall.

HaandBryggeriet Odin’s Tipple
Bottle. Sensoric. Vintage 2013. Solid roasted malts aroma - mainly milk chocolate, slightly coffee, lightly smokey, burnt. Moderate to heavy malty aroma, slightly boozy. Moderately to heavy sweet with a nice lightly bitter duration. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. In overall nice, milk-chocolate based imperial stout, decently roasted. It matures for 3 yrs in a bottle, before opening so the booziness described in previous reviews is not so potent. Good for aging.

Bottle. Sensoric. Brownish/reddish with tiny, light brown head, poor head retention and lacing. Heavy malty aroma - mainly caramel, candy-like, slightly spicy, slightly herbal. Some dark fruits in the background along with some raisins. Taste is moderate to heavy sweet with light spiced and bitter notes.Medium body, oily texture, soft to average carbonation, finish is heavy malty. In overall English-style barley wine, not really special rather old-school one, but nice, drinkable with extreme well ABV hidden.

Dobre piwo, aromat bardziej jak imperialny porter. W tle ciemne owoce, rodzynki, wiśnie. Generalnie słodkie, ulepkowate, ale nie nudne i zamulające. Karmel, czekolada, beczka, lekko kwaskowate, powiedziałbym likierowe, lekko alkoholowe. Interesujące i nietuzinkowe piwo.

January 2017 - Bottle share at Leighton’s. Thanks Leighton! As ’HaandBryggeriet Norse Porter ’, 6.5%, 2013 vintage. Very dark brown with a red hue, still with a foamy brown head. Aroma is chocolate and rye bread, rich fruited chocolate vibes, musty, tangy resinous vibes. Body is light, tingly carbonation, frothy. Taste is ashy, dark chocolate, raisins, tangy fruits, spicy dry finish. Has held up fairly well with age. (3.1)

HaandBryggeriet Flemish Brown Cherry
Brune voilée, pour ne pas dire boueuse et sans mousse. Un nez de cerise sûre et un côté aigre. Un goût très acidulé. Une finale qui tire sur la mélasse et ça ne m’est pas particulièrement plaisant. L’acidité est courte en bouche. Ce qui persiste ressemble beaucoup à du vinaigre. Par moment ça ressemble à du jus de griotte, ce qui pourrait être plaisant. Je ne sais pas trop quoi en penser. Peut-être que je ne la comprends pas, ou alors elle n’est tout simplement pas pour moi. (Batch 789 M.A. 16.01.2018) (2103-150217)

Smaksprøve fra fat på Bøker & Børst, Stavanger, sammen med Gunnar og Bryne, før avreise til RBHD-samling: brunsvart med ok skum. Raffinert og spennende aroma og smak hvor bringebærene bidrar positivt til stout-opplevelsen uten at det blir verken for surt eller søtt - bare en ekstra lekker dimensjon. flott balanse, munnfylde og lang, god ettersmak. Skal testes igjen.

On tap at Både&. An black one, with a dense finger thick dark beige head. It’s quite roasted on the nose, with a good piney touch. Some coffee and toast, and a citrus peel hint. It’s quite dry on the palate, nicely carbonated and with a good bitterness. Roasted malts dominated flavor, pine cones, resin and coffee joining. Even some hints of prunes towards the finish, which is mostly on the roasted and hoppy side. I prefer my black IPA’s less roasted, but it’s sure a fine brew. 170216

At the brewery. Delicate berry flavor, carrying on in the tail. Dry coffee stout body, nice combo. Nice that they use berries in other beers than their sour ones.
