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.

ljthiessen (1140) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 26, 2016
Can. Dark pour with a slight reddish hue, thick creamy tan head, classic nitro pour. Aroma is slightly roasty, very mild with hints of chocolate, heavy cream and dark fruits. Taste is also a little roasty, some light chocolate and biscuit notes, hints of dark fruit. Thin and a little watery, not much carbonation.

thellgren (830) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 2, 2016
0.5 can with nitro gadget from K-supermarket Ruoholahti, Helsinki. Looks great with that nitro generated head. Taste is also smooth as in Irish nitro stouts. There is nothing else to say.

Benzai (14282) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2015
Bottle @ Terminus Den Bosch. Fantastic dark brown to black color with a thick dense creamy off-white head that lasts forever. Smell and taste malts, lightly butter, lightly bitter, a bit lactic sort of speak. Soft mouthfeel, soft delicate velvety texture, suitable soft body and carbonation.

caesar (6685) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2015
Tap @ Terminus, small sample. Dark color, beautiful medium lasting creamy head. Aroma of earthy hop, soft roast, bit coffee. Soft bitter in taste, creamy mouthfeel. Just like an oldskool stout should be.

Onslow (1410) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 18, 2015
Pour from 14.9 oz can. Black brew with tan head. Aroma of roasted malts. Taste is nice blend of roasted grain, hints of coffee and chocolate, ends with a sweet caramel and a little toffee, final flourish of a little burnt grain at the last. Quite sweet and a little weak throughout. Smooth oily palate, very enjoyable to drink.
