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.

On tap at Taco Mac. Deep walnut, almost black with thin tan cap and significant lacing. Aroma is roast and chocolate. Semi sweet taste which is mostly roasted malt, some bitter chocolate comes through with coffee notes - taste is smooth, a hint of hop bitterness to finish. Body is lighter than I would have liked, although there is some creaminess to it. It’s a fair beer, smooth drinking, but not very complex and a little too thin for my taste.

Draught in Pazzeria, Milan, carbo-nitro
Black color with creamy beige head. Nice aroma, some roasted malt, caramel, fudge. Low carbonation; Mild flavor of dark malts, not too dry, and moderate chocolate; ordinary bitterness. Light final, because of the nitro.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4971) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2013
I had pretty low expectations for this one but was pleasantly surprised. +++ Sampled from a 16 oz can this beer poured a black color with a large creamy dark beige head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was a nicely complex mix of roasty, toasty and almost smoky with notes of vanilla, cream, wood and hickory. The flavor was sweetish and roasty with notes of smoke, bacon and floral hops. Long roasty bacon finish. Moderately full bodied and smooth. Pleasant.
