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.

lesifflebiere (1763) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2017
Une bire brune fonce mi-mince, arborant un petit halo de mousse, et mettant des notes de chocolat noir et de caf au lait. La bouche est surtout sucre, ronde, un peu fume, le chocolat au lait domine sur la langue, lalcool est admirablement tenu en laisse. Les armes habituels de ce style, du moins dans les variations "amricaines" (amertume venant des grains rtis, caf noir, etc.) ne sont pas vraiment au rendez-vous, mais les saveurs sont justes, franches, le tout est rondelet et bien balanc.

MelvinKalksma (1308) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2017

Aroma:
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, dark fruit, liquorice, chocolate and roasted malts.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with slight yeast and with a medium beige/brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, dark fruit, liquorice and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Was not sure if it was a sweet stout, untill I took my first sip. The taste is quite good, the aroma could have been stronger however. The appearancr is amazing and easily the best aspect of this beer.

Bottle from Dikkers Slijterij, Hoogeveen. Aroma is dark malt, oats, sweet chocolate, roast, some caramel, touch of mocha and liquorice. Flavour is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is just above medium and a bit creamy. This Stout gets the job done with its rich oat malts and sweet dark chocolate aroma.
