Yes, a fantastic beer. Something is known very much in Belhaven. They have so many brilliant beer. This one with a light-brown head a good choice for lying back and relax. The first thing that you can realize: the caramellic aroma with some plum(yes, really plum). Initial taste is heavy sweet. Then develop the harsh alcoholic, full body, which is a bit sirupy-a bit oily, and very thick. In the finish there is some stewed prunes. I have to find on the map, very is Belhaven just now!!!

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2003 A really special and unique beer. A little roasted and smoked. Still not heavy or dark. The great advantage of this brew is that it is still fruity, light and refreshing, but still smoked and roasted. Looks like whiskey, but tastes like a blend between the "Blandford Fly" and "Slenkerla Rauchbier". Thoose different styles are blended together with perfection. This is a fusion beer.

Pours clear dark red amber with fluffy tanned head. Roasted malts, fidges, toffey and dry hay aroma. Sweet caramel and malty flavor with notes of crispy floral and fruity. Sweet and crispy acidy on palate. Finishes with pear sweet to begin with turning into bitter hoppy. Very nice.

lively looker in glass - fizzy looking. tan with a reddish hue. head look small and worried at first that it would disapper altogether - but it didn’t thankfully. smell toffe/caramel. (molasses?). Got better as heated up - may have overchilled. Eventually becamn lovely.nice pint indeed.

An amber beer with great head. The aroma is very complex with hints of fruit, malt and banana. The flavor is fruity and prickling with spices. It’s a great flavor yet a little special

Brought from Scotland, 500ml,typical brown Belhaven bottle.Painting of the poet on the label. Quite a nice looking ale poured into the imperial pint mug.It isdark amber with a luscious bubbly/frothy light tan head.Great lacing down the glass as I drink. Aroma is of malts,quite nutty. Nice tasting ale,its quite "clean" compared to most Scottish ales,meaning the malts arent quite so upfront sweet this seems a more balanced Scottish ale..the malts being somewhat driven back by some hops. Long lasting tobacco like after taste ( nice pipe tobacco). This is quite highlycarbonated compared to your typical Scot ale..thoughit works rather well on the palate. I found this to be an excellent drinking beer, not overlly complex but supremely enjoyable.
