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.

Went into this hoping that it would be something similar to Guinness... disappointed. Painfully average stout... would not waste my $$ again...

Pint, some hints of roast coffee and burnt toast and definitely better than a Guinness in the flavour department but overall very thin feeling and oddly fizzy, almost as if someone had topped up the Keg with Perrier... OK but could be better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at surf club NYE 2013. Thanks Eric for hooking it up. This was okay. A bit better than Guinness, but alas, it was still just another pasteurized nitro stout with all the flavor sucked out of it.

Draft to taster. Looks okay; a transparent dark copper with off-white lacing. Smells of oddly unbalanced dark malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. Tastes like it smells with a below average mouthfeel. Not good.

Pleasant though somewhat weak flavor. No bitterness, but not a whole lot else either. I’d drink it in preference to some other stouts, but it is really just meh.

blankboy (5948) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2013
[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a very dark brown with an average size diminishing frothy tan head. Aroma of toasted malt, chocolate, a hint of coffee, some vanilla and dark fruit. Mild, slightly watery flavour follows the aroma along with a hint of hops in the finish -- decent but too mild. Average bodied. Not great, just good overall.

TET (1542) - FINLAND - DEC 19, 2013
A colabrown beer with an almost medium and beige head. The nose is strongly roasted, black coffee, some chocolate and ryebread. Not totally dry. Taste of roastiness, some bready malts, not very dry, some chocolate and black coffee. Barely light+ bodied, mild and smooth carbonation. Easy and harmless Stout. Anyway, nice complexicity.

Aroma has roastiness, toffee and some English hops. Flavour has toffee, some roasted notes, hay and English hops. Just too English.

This one does not offer a great range of taste or aroma. A bit roasted malt, lots of water and some nuts. Maybe. Disappointing and watery. Nothing special.
