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.

shorlin (721) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - NOV 6, 2013
Poured from 500ml bottle at home. Aroma is a bit metallic, maybe some malt in there. Appearance is a deep reddish-black with some fizzy head. Taste comes around with some nice malt, roasty with some mild coffee in there. Feel is OK, not creamy but solid. Overall a decent stout.

500ml bottle from the LCBO, belhaven mixed pack. deep reddish brown with an off white head. perfect session weight stout. so much flavour for a 4.2% beer. kills guiness.

dinkle50 (1265) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Nitro pour. Creamy head. Sweet aroma of roasted grain. Lingering sweetness with a little roast on the tongue. Raisins creep in as it warms up. Dry and very drinkable. Excellent mouth on this nitro pour.

allmyvinyl (8809) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 30, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Pours jet black, no head. Roasted malts, burnt sugar aromas. Tastes light sweet, not a lot else. Thin, unchallenging. Ok.

440ml can from deli in New York. Everything about this beer is good from the thick black tar colour to the full rich flavour and mouthfeel.

rubbishystuff (2215) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2015 At Red Lion. Reminded me of a dry Irish style stout mixed with Fuller’s porter but a little thinner, less roasted. Not bad. Serving: Bottle

FatPhil (12779) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 16, 2013
500ml can (Drink, Tallinn)
Pure sugar puffs aroma. Black, tight head. Watery guinnessy keg stout. Dead palate, nitro carbonation. Slightly OK roast, just a hint of smokiness or maybe ashiness. Finish metallic, a bit of tobacco. Bland macro fizz, but with a dark twist. Doesn’t fool me. Sub-standard immitation of guinness,

Majek (648) - Ząbki, POLAND - OCT 16, 2013
Clear, almost black colour with ruby reflexes. Big, thick beige head with nice lacing. Medium intensive aroma of chocolate (lack of roasted malts). Taste is mild, rather sweety (mainly chocolate flavor), finish is slightly bitter with some roasted malts and resin. Light body. Medium finish. Quite drinkable, but IMO too watery stout.

kevnic2008 (10868) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2013
From bottle. Pours dark brown, almost black with a tan head. Roasted malt aromas with caramel and chocolate. The oysters are not showing much.

kaser (5193) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Draft at bangers and lace. Jet black pour with foamy creamy head that lasts the whole beer. A smokey stout. Good balance and easy drinker.
