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.

440ml can from Carrefour, Xintiandi, Changchun. Pors almost black with a thin beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste a little grassy and a little sweet but with chocolate too. Overall pretty good, a decent find in China.

ElDesmadre (1615) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle. Aroma of caramel, grain and grass, with marginal chocolate notes. The taste is more stout-like, with the chocolate part coming to the front, although I miss the roast. Also, an obnoxious metallic note appears. Watery, bland, light bitter. Drinkable for sure but why bother?

KyotoLefty (6563) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 26, 2014
Can from Yamaya. Nearly black, some orange tints, fine nitro head. Creamy, milky nose, chocolate, root beer, light vanilla. Sweet chocolate and cream flavor, some coffee and tobacco in the background and a light sour tartness. Thin and smooth nitro body that I don’t really dig. Taste is reasonably nice, though.

Butelka; Aromat ciemnych słodów. W smaku lekko palone, czekoladowe, dosyć wodniste z niską goryczką.

On tap b lack with a light brown foamy head that fades and laces. Smooth clean taste of coffee and chocolate. Nothing fancy but nice and straight forward.

Bottle at home. Pours a very deep brown to black colour with a medium beige head. Malty aroma with nuts, leather, roasted malt, some chocolate and coffee. Has a distinct roasted flavour with a touch of ash and coffee. Slick mouth feel, and has a light bitterness. A pretty light stout in both aroma and taste. Is well balanced though, and easy-drinking.
