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.

Moglo je možda i bolje. Da su arome i ukusi malo izraženiji. Tijelo je bogato i zavodljivo - sa oblinama. Ovsene pahuljice čuda čine. U aromama ni traga alkoholu. Sve je sakriveno blagim mirisima čokolade, kože, zemlje, tamnog šećera. Nakon ispijanje prvog gutljaja - 7% alkohola se fino osjeti i grije. Baš lijepo grije. Najbolje od Belhaven...

Dégustée dans un verre "Mille et une bières": belle robe brun foncé surmontée d’une mousse couleur café avec une forte carbonatation qui s’estompe rapidement.Le nez nous offre des arômes de chocolat et café avec une petite pointe alcoolisée.La bouche amène des saveurs à l’image du nez avec un agréable velouté mêlé à l’amertume et l’alcool dans un parfait équilibre.Un ensemble complexe et harmonieux.Excellent Stout!18,5/20

appiantiqua (183) - Lyon, FRANCE - MAY 13, 2017
Dégustée dans un verre "Les 3 Loups". Température de début 7 à 8°. Superbe robe ébène et opaque surmontée d’une fine mousse crème de persistance moyenne; carbonatation brève mais intense. Nez particulièrement agréable qui révèle des arômes de fruits et de chocolat avec une richesse évidente. Le goût est de la même teneur avec des saveurs torréfiées,fumées et toujours une complexité appréciable dans un parfait équilibre même si la douceur l’emporte sur l’amertume.l’alcool est aussi idéalement intégré. L’arrière bouche de bonne longueur marque le retour du café et laisse une impression des plus plaisantes. Un "sweet stout" de très belle facture! 18,5/20

Cerveza oscura, sabe a avena tostada en el primer sorbo, después siente amargo chocolate, pero suave de tomar ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hauxe (712) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2017
Pours virtually black from the bottle. The creamy, tan head soon fades. Very little evident aroma, but some hints of chocolate, lightly earthy. Not the most inviting. Taste is overall sweet, but with light sour and bitter undertones. Hints of brown sugar, oatmeal, molasses, chocolate. Relatively complex and well balanced despite a somewhat thin body. Overall not bad, but a lackluster palate and weak aroma drag things down a notch.

radassace (299) - SCOTLAND - MAY 2, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours jet black with a small tan head. Roasted malt, coffee,leather and dark fruits on the nose. Medium thick mouth feel with some carbonation. Smooth from the oats. Roasted malt, coffee, prune, dark chocolate and orange peel on the taste. Touch of brown sugar and treacle toffee. Bitter finish, with a lasting malty chocolate stickiness in the palate. Very tasty indeed.

Borresteijn (6969) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2017
33cl Bottle at Roundhouse, during Desertfest. Black colour, beige head. Aroma of liquorice, dark fruits, molasses, caramel, roasted malts, hint of ink. Flavour is sweet, roasted malts, some chocolate, caramel, molasses, liquorice, bitter mocha finish. Medium bodied. Nice.

Grumpelmies (318) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 1, 2017
Bottle. Black with a nice head. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, sweet and a little bit smokey. Aftertaste is burned bacon which I just can’t stand. It’s alright I guess but not my cup of tea.

3.4
Frothmeister (792) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 20, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours the darkest possible brown turning to mahogany when held up to the light, and a one finger tan cap with some clumsy cheap lager-like carbonation. On the nose, mineral heavy, dark coffee, light citrus, roasty malt notes, and a hint of ash. Taste-wise, sweet and lighter bodied than expected with dates, molasses and dark roast coffee that heads into more of the same but with heavier roasted malt notes, and a small reminder of bitterness in the finish. Not bad, but like most of the Belhaven family, a little TOO sweet to be a repeat purchase.
