Bottle. Pours a brown black body with a tan rocky head. Caramel, chocolate, light vanilla, toffee and butterscotch. Hints of smoked malt and minerals. I’ve always liked these guys and this is one of their better offerings.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brown sugar,toffee and roasted aroma,all typically European delicate, taste just a hair sweet slightly smoked roasted malt with that distinct caramel chocolate subtleness that only the brewers of Scotland can seem to nail down, smooth as silk. Taste better if its your first one of the night

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Opaque black color with medium sized, lasting, coffee-brown head with creamy texture. Medium roasted aroma with mild smoky character.
Distinct roasted coffee beans with slight dark chocolate and cocoa. Heavy roasted feel in the finish with some resinous hoppy tones. I don’t know what is the main difference between the dry and the simple stout, but this one seemed quite dry to me. Medium bodied with smooth carbonation and creamy texture. Delicate!

It is black with a red hue and a creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate and anise. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of roasted malt, dark fruits, chocolate and hints of licorice. It is really nice, and it is clearly the best Belhaven I have had.

Black with a light tan head. Aroma is a lightly roasty old milk chocolate, interesting yeast and hop combination. Taste is lightly roasty, with milk chocolate, and chocolate syrup- Tastes like an amped up Youngs Chocolate Stout.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours black with a small light tan head. Aroma is quite odd--slight roasted malt and also some vegetal notes I think Flavor is rather salty with a vague malt backbone. This is one of the oddest stouts I’ve had and I don’t like it.
