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.

I love it. It tastes a lot like a Guinness, but with a malty/chocolaty richness inside it. It’s the (almost) perfect beer. All it needs is a bump up in alcohol content.

4-pack of cans at The Beer Store with the nitro widget. Pours a dark brown colour, a little darker than cola with a cascade effect that disappears quickly but forms a creamy beige head that lasts a while. Beautiful roasted malt nose giving coffee notes and nuts. Full creamy lacing follows. Still roasted malts in the taste, but watery. Very mild coffee, nuts and liquorice. Very mild. Still, an easy-drinking Scottish stout that is not too heavy, but smooth.

Jultsu (211) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2014
500ml tölkki. Iso, hitaasti tiivistyvä vaahto, hiivainen tupakkainen tuoksu. Limainen, vetelä, väljähtänyt suuruntuma. Vaahdossa aistittavissa kahvia, maku muuten oudon esanssinen, tupakkaa.

Dorqui (2110) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 30, 2014
Canned 0,50L. Dark and deep black color, intense and creamy head of long long duration. Nice aspect. Ashed and smoked wood aroma, intense roast malty and soft alcoholic nose. Medium smooth taste, good alcoholic and bitterish palate, good and long roasty final. Ash and carbon end.

Can, Ive never had a good stout from a can, A malty, smooth stout, with a very nice aroma. My guess was that there were some oats in here, but apparently not

Czarne piwo o obfitej ale nietrwałej pianie. Aromat palonych ziaren niezbyt intensywny. W smaku wyczuwalne palone ziarna, trochę gorzkiej czekolady. Całość dosyć łagodna.
