COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belhaven Black Scottish Stout really is something completely different. Bursting with roast coffee and chocolate flavours, this is a truly genuine and premium pint. Brewed using pure Scottish water and a unique blend of Scottish triple malts sourced from the finest locally grown barley.

Aroma is roasted malts, fruit and chocolate. The flavor is fruit, tobacco, light chocolate, dark malts and a tart/acidic finish.

Absolutely great foam on the head ! Really thin beer with light bitternes which is almost flat. All those features makes beer quite drinkable even in great amounts.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2280) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 6, 2014
Can from Yamaya for 400 yen bought in honor of Stout Day. A great looking nitro pour gives you a pitch black beer with a dense creamy light beige long-lasting head of foam. It has a mild savory coffee aroma with roasted oats accents. A great soft silky cream-like mouthfeel. The taste is sweet coffee, a bit of lactose, some roastiness and toffee notes in the finish. It is quite a refined flavor that seems to have been paired down to it’s essence. Not that complex but well put together delivering a stout with no muss nor fuss.

Eructoblaster (3084) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2014
On tap at NDHQ Sgts/WOs Mess. Opaque black body with a lasting, thick, beige creamy head. Well balanced malty aroma with hoppy and some roasted cereals hints. Its decent malty/hoppy taste carries some woody and roasty notes. Ends with a good bitter/roasty finish. Decent Stout.

Puszka. Kolor: czarny z rubinowymi refleksami widocznymi pod światło. Piana: nienaganny wygląd stout’a w wysp brytyjskich; kremowa, brudno biała, niezbyt obfita paina, z fantastycznym lacingiem. Aromat: orzechy, chlebowo, słodowo, ciemne aromaty, stylowo. Smak:praktycznie zerowe wysycenie, kremowe, gładkie z zaskakującym orzechowym posmakiem. Piwo lekkie, szalenie pijalne, zero goryczki. ardzo dobty stout, moim zdaniem puszkowy Guinness, zarówno ten z Anglii, jak i z Polski (w innych lokacjach nie piłem) jest gorszym piwem niż Belhaven Black.

Bottle at home. Pours black, not getting this, thin and lacking flavour - light toffee, chocolate.

AdiBeer (1434) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2014
Aroma: light toasted malts, intense caramel. Appearance: black, no head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters intensify, roasted malts, soft carbonation. Overall: sub-average Stout, but nothing too special. Pint at the Mayflower, Rotherhithe.

Deu (721) - Nantes, FRANCE - SEP 29, 2014
On tap in Paris. Black color with a creamy and frothy tan head, good lasting and nice lacework. Aroma has notes of licorice, roasted malts and black chocolate. Flavor is mild bittery with roasted notes, some ashes, licorice and coffee beans. Light bittery final with a dry mouthfeel. Overall Ok

Pitch dark color, irish stout a-like. Smooth roasted aromas. Thin, watery, irish-stout taste with a sweet aftertaste. Not so full flavor as I wanted. Dry finish.
