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.

Can @ home. Black with a large beige head. Taste is of roasted malts, chocolate and a touch of fruits. Very smooth with a slightly dry aftertaste. The cask version is sightly better than it is on can, but despite its watery texture it is quite drinkable. This is IMHO as good as a Guinness.

can. Poured near black with a skim of a tan head. Heavily roasted malt aroma. Medium body, watery carbonation with a dry bitter finish. Flavour of roasted malt, dark fruit and smoke accompany coffee and dark chocolate notes.

Zapach z butelki to kontynentalne chmiele, dalej lekka paloność i kawa – DUŻO kawy. Piana dosyć wysoka, karmelowa, niestety szybko opada. Piwo jest całkowicie czarne, choć pod światło przebłyskuje ciemna miedź. Aromat ze szkła to i chmiel i słód – kawa nadal jest, chociaż już znacznie delikatniejsza. W smaku kawa jest już bardzo wyraźna. Oprócz niej jest i paloność i przypieczona skórka ciemnego chleba, jest chmiel, ale goryczka od niego jest zdecydowanie za mała. Piwo jest dosyć słodkie, co niestety nie jest w żaden sposób kontrowane. Odczuwalna jest pewna wodnistość. Piwo jest bardzo pijalne, raczej wysoko wysycone. Takie lekkie sesyjne piwo – dobre do obiadu czy na mecz. Jest w porządku, ale nic ponad to.

Barwa ciemnobrunatna. Piana jak na stouta kiepska- drobna, ale niska i szybko opadająca. W aromacie czuć kawę i paloność. W smaku jest lekkie, gładkie, lekko palone, ale dobrą pijalność psuje trochę zbyt wysokie wysycenie.

nearbeer (3963) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 7, 2015
440 ml. can with widget inside. Pour is a clear, deep brown-black with an enduring wafer of nitro cream on top. Muted but pleasant aroma is dark caramel with a touch of coffee. Taste is the same with small touches of earthiness and green herb, then just enough roast in the aftertaste to bring a bit of balance. Near-medium body is of course velvety nitro smoothness. This one is definitely to the sweet side with lots of big Scottish malt flavors, but it’s almost watery enough to keep from getting sticky.

MrBlueSky93 (275) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle from Beers of Europe. This was a favourite of mine for a bit, but going back to it...it’s a bit thin. Pours Black with single finger off white head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate. Taste of initial smokiness, peat smoke, roasted malts, some coffee and a touch of chocolate in there. It’s just a bit thin though. Nice carbonation. Good.
