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.

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.

Puszka. Kolor: czarny z rubinowymi refleksami widocznymi pod światło. Piana: nienaganny wygląd stout’a w wysp brytyjskich; kremowa, brudno biała, niezbyt obfita paina, z fantastycznym lacingiem. Aromat: orzechy, chlebowo, słodowo, ciemne aromaty, stylowo. Smak:praktycznie zerowe wysycenie, kremowe, gładkie z zaskakującym orzechowym posmakiem. Piwo lekkie, szalenie pijalne, zero goryczki. ardzo dobty stout, moim zdaniem puszkowy Guinness, zarówno ten z Anglii, jak i z Polski (w innych lokacjach nie piłem) jest gorszym piwem niż Belhaven Black.

Bottle at home. Pours black, not getting this, thin and lacking flavour - light toffee, chocolate.

Aroma: light toasted malts, intense caramel. Appearance: black, no head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters intensify, roasted malts, soft carbonation. Overall: sub-average Stout, but nothing too special. Pint at the Mayflower, Rotherhithe.

On tap in Paris. Black color with a creamy and frothy tan head, good lasting and nice lacework. Aroma has notes of licorice, roasted malts and black chocolate. Flavor is mild bittery with roasted notes, some ashes, licorice and coffee beans. Light bittery final with a dry mouthfeel. Overall Ok

Pitch dark color, irish stout a-like. Smooth roasted aromas. Thin, watery, irish-stout taste with a sweet aftertaste. Not so full flavor as I wanted. Dry finish.

Can 0.5L. Black body with average, creamy, tan head, mostly lasting with some nice lacing. Moderate malty aroma (caramel, roasted, dark malts) with notes of coffee and chocolate, light licorice. Moderate sweet flavour with high-to-moderate bitterness which becomes more evident in the finish, together with some notes of licorice. Light-to-medium body with oily texture; soft carbonation.

Piwo nieco płaskie, wodniste i wytrawne, ale brak w nim szczególnych wad. Wyraźne nuty kawowe i nieco mniej czekoladowych.

A close analog to Guiness Draft. Black body with beige foamy head. Musty and metallic to the nose. Bitter and round in mouth. Nice.
