Det Kompromisslose Bryggeriet ("the uncompromising brewery" to you and me) is a new-school microbrewery in the maritime town of Grimstad making big-hearted riffs on British, Belgian, and American styles. Its signature beer, translated as "Barren Isle," comes from an Ibsen description of the desolate coastline near where the beers – including this roasty, chocolaty, slightly smoky, and piney porter – are made in minuscule batches.
