UPDATED: MAY 19, 2013 355ml bottle. Beautiful dark brown color with small light beige head. Nose has roasted coffee, malts and some dark chocolate. These are followed in same kind of aromas with pleasant mild carbonation. More body to it and it would be better.

Stout is a stout type of beer to be dark because of the roasted malt. But there is no ’rules’ to whether it should be decidedly black, for how much roasting the malt must decide only master brewer. This stout is certainly not among the darkest - but it may still be a stout anyway. The aroma suggests slightly roasted malt and the taste is lightly smoked. Moreover, the very sweet caramel malt, and probably what I would describe as sweet. But I can still sense its stout character. I do prefer a smoky, angular stout - and it’s McCallum’s not.

jamaty (1234) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 5, 2015
Marrón rojiza. Clara. Un dedo de espuma marrón, que se va rápido, entera. Aroma dulce, tostado. Rico sabor, caramelo, dulce sin ser empalagosa. Amargor herbal amortiguado y notas tostadas. Buen cuerpo y carbonatación. Superbebible y agradable.

Calisky (1665) - ALSACE, FRANCE - APR 5, 2015
Couleur brune sombre, mousse qui disparait. Nez malt toasté, café doux, note de houblon. Gout malté caramel doux, pas de note amčre ou grillée, corps trčs léger et aqueux. Fin rapide. Assez décevant pour une stout.

(Flasche) Es hat eine schwarze, undurchsichtige Farbe mit einer bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist röstig, erdig und etwas wie Trockenfeige. Der Geschmack ist süßlich, eher dünn, definitiv Feige, etwas röstig und etwas sirupartig. Es ist prickelnd, aber nicht zu stark karbonisiert.

mario_giri (162) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2015
Brotmalzig und wenig Fruchthopfen. Röstmalzig süsslich, zu Beginn kommt etwas Bittere, wenig milder Kaffee und Rauch. Abagang eher kurz und röstmalzig süss. Eher dünn, wenig Co2, keine Säure.

Deu (898) - Nantes, FRANCE - FEB 19, 2015
Bottle, pours a reddish brown with a tan head, has a bit a sweet taste to it of caramel malt but is rather thin and watery, not very bitter but a fairly average stout

Rammer (352) - Moscow, RUSSIA - FEB 18, 2015
Not the standard Stout. Virtually no coffee and chocolate hues, as there bitterness from Bitter. Not bad, but strange.

La nota scozzese Belhaven produce questa buona stout atipica. Marrone scuro non troppo torbido e con una schiuma beige, al naso giŕ si capisce che ci si trova di fronte una stout "rivisitata" rispetto alla tradizione. Il sapore di caffč e malti tostati č presente ma in minor quantitŕ per lo stile, predomina il dolce, mentre il corpo č leggero e quasi cremoso. Stout atipica appunto, che perň si lascia bere molto bene, pur non spiccando in nessun aspetto.
