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.

Palme (3284) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2013
0.5l bottle. This is a clear deep ruby-brown one with a medium sized bubbly and lacing ashy-brown top. Itís not to roasty on the aroma, more subtle tracers of blackberries and other dark fruits. Some chocolate paper and traces of cold thin coffee. Not bad, but not fantastic either. It has a nice flavor. Really "English". Noble hoppy with both roasted malts and subtle chocolate. Itís gliding soft oily on the mouthfeel and the carbonation is right below average. It has a nice burned finish that lingers in the aftertaste as well. Really lightdrinkable this, tasty and not bad at all for a lightweighter. 19.01.2013

tombyars (1352) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 9, 2013
500ml bottle tasted on December 2012. Black ruby in colour with a foam buff head. Roast grain in the short aroma. Thin oily mouthfeel and poor lacing. Dark malts gives a moist maltloaf base with flavours of dark chocolate and black coffee. There is a distinct soy sauce taste lurking in this. Dusty hop resins give a short bitter aftertaste. Finish is malty with a dry nutty almond note left in the mouth. An ok stout but better versions out there.

maeib (8640) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2013
Bottled 01/02/13. A black beer with a white head and lacing. Smoky roasty malts in the nose. Sweetness in the mouth with a weird vomit note. An odd fruitiness but good roasty malts. Passable but cheap and safe.

DrinkEmUpJones (1062) - Georgia, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Black with light brown head. Almost no nose. Palate is flat and cask-y with mild roasted malt flavors. Very sessionable.

mighty_meadow (183) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - FEB 2, 2013
Dark, very dark in colour. Thin tan head. Looks nice. Not as thick as it looks which is possibly the biggest fault. Tastes dark. Flat cola, malty biscuits, slightly tart finish. Could perhaps benefit from a touch more abv. Belhaven becoming a bit of a favourite. [500ml bottle]

Geokkjer (5719) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours brown with an off-white head. Aroma of coffee, malt, fruitiness and roasted grains. Flavor is sweet and roasted with some coffee and malt. Medium body, average carbonation.

yngwie (13346) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle. A dark, reddish brown beer with some dense, off-white to light beige bubbles on top. Malty nose with some roasted hints. Quite weak. The flavor is pretty much the same, itís quite dry on the palate, medium bodied, and with some dried fruits as well as roasted malts. Coffee too. Lasting finish. Overall, rather boring, but sure boring. 130202

Pours reddish dark brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes malt, grain, chocolate and floral. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter. Body is light, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - JAN 20, 2013
Thin off white head. Rounded flavour and body producing a mild stout which is easy to drink but perhaps a little low on flavour.
