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.

Foffern (1252) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2014
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.

Derbeth (347) - Kraków, POLAND - JUN 6, 2014
Draught in PDSL, Warsaw. Black colour, thick brown head with perfect lacing. Roasted malt, coffee, feels smooth which reminds me a bit an oatmeal stout. Light bitterness, no sweetness. Soft carbonation. Very good!

Beachmaster (149) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Poured from a 440ml can into a pint glass. Pours black, with a moderate light tan head which persists and leaves fair lacing. Head appears like a nitro head, with lots of tiny bubbles cascading downward at first. Nose is a very faint chocolate and coffee. Taste is watery, with very slight coffee notes, and a metallic finish. Yuck.

thegreenrooster (3243) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Pour is a black from the can with a bone white head. It did that nitro thing with the head creeping up the inside of the glass. Aroma is some small amount of roasted malt but has some coffee to back it up. Flavor is thin but creamy with a decent roast and bitter dark chocolate. Decent beer that has more of a char malt mouth feel then it’s cousin from Ireland.

4.2% black in colour with a poor head, not much aroma or a bad taste, although it was rather fizzy.
