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.

Similar to an Irish Stout, but with a more smoky flavor and aroma. Coffee and chocolate play an important part as well. It’s still light in body but good.

Slautar (132) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 27, 2015
Belhaven Black jest dla mnie bardzo ważnym piwem bo wśród dziewięciu piw, których próbowałem na Chmielatonie (generalnie drugim ale dla mnie pierwszym) zajął drugie miejsce zaraz po Rowing Jacku (i za to sentymentalne 19 przy Overall) będąc tym samym jednym z czynników, które skłoniły mnie do zainteresowania się piwem (pod kątem innym dostarczanie alkoholu do mózgu). Pijąc to piwo w tej chwili nie potrafię sobie przypomnieć co mnie tak w nim wtedy zachwyciło i ma to swoje odzwierciedlenie w ocenach od Aroma do Palate jednak dziewiętnastka pozostaje za wkład i za za... za..za za..za zaangażowanie.

Almost black, beige head quickly gone to thin ring, some lacing. Nothing in aroma but some roasted malt and sour cabbage. Watery taste, too high carbonation sourness, thin roasty finish. Nothing. Six feet of mud.

szagi (54) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle. Jet black, not very impressive head. Chocolate, roastiness, some coffee in aroma, but also something bad is happening, slightly phenolic in a unpleasant way. Roastiness again in taste, chocolate and caramel. Light carbonation, but still too much for me for a stout. Light bitterness. In general thin and watery

Ujdzie. Nikły aromat słodów palonych, fajny wygląd, a w smaku bez szału. Ot, taki stoucik. Tyle...
