COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belhaven Scottish Oat Stout is dark, rich and layered, with a wonderful silky texture and a lingering finish. We uses a complex mash including roasted barley and oats along with 3 types of malt to give the beer its trademark depth and complexity: Creating black coffee and dark chocolate notes that make this stout intense yet approachable.

harrisoni (19189) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2017
Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. Black beer with thin tan head. Tarry dark chocolate aroma. Some cereal on a dark stout. Dry stout. chocolate. light molasses. Not much else. but decent enough. It's a bit sweet. OK but not sure i'd have it again. But some dry malt, but a little too much residual sweetness.

maekchu (4024) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 27, 2017
Bottle from local Yamaya store. Nose of roast malt, chocolate, light licorice, and some coffee. Very dark brown with a foamy dark beige head. Sweet dark chocolate, coffee, touch of licorice, a little salt, soy sauce, and dark sugar, Small bitterness in the finish. Medium body, a little creamy. Very nice. Moderate but edging onto rich flavors. Best beer I've had from Belhaven.

Tel un café sucré, j'ai toujours un peu de mal avec les sweet stouts. L'alliance fruité/fumé n'a d'ailleurs pas arrangé mon ressenti sur ce Scottish Oat Stout. Il faut cependant savoir reconnaître une bonne complexité aromatique, une structure au rendez vous soutenue pas un alcool et une amertume au rendez vous et une longueur et corpulence de bon niveau. Mon ressenti est donc avant tout une histoire de goût. Sa robe est d'un noir total avec une mousse quasi absente. Il faut dire que l'effervescence est peu poussée. Le nez est agréable et ample, se portant sur le café, le chocolat et le fruit (agrumes). L'attaque est bien équilibré entre malt et amertume, toujours sur le café, le chocolat et le fruit mais avec également une pointe de fumée (dont personnellement je me serai bien passé). Le sucre apporte bien entendu la douceur nécessaire au style. La deuxième bouche monte quant à elle sur l'amertume et sur les arômes fruités (les autre arômes étant toujours présents). L'arrière bouche montre quant à elle un café plus présent accompagné d'épices. La troisième bouche sur une dominante café/amertume précède le final, donnant la primauté à la douceur et au fumé devant le café et le fruit. Faute de l'apprécier gustativement, j'ai tout de même apprécié le travail du brasseur.

Opaque black color with a creamy light brown head of foam that is short lived. Smooth and velvety chocolate and caramel grain with a mild and smooth cold brew coffee finish. Very good.

PowY (993) - AUSTRIA - AUG 10, 2017
330 ml bottle. Pours a dark red-brown with a tn colored head. Aroma of roasted malt with lots of dark fruits, milk chocolate, some woody notes. Medium to full creamy body with a very low carbonation and a medium to medium heavy sweetness. The flavor is again full of sweetish roasted malt - chocolate, raisins, brown sugar. Lightly sweet and lightly bitter roasty finish.
