sebletitje (9616) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2009
courtesy of ibrew2or3 Pours black with thick beige head. Aroma of yeast, cereal, some peat with notes of chocolate and caramel malts. Flavor, peat, caramel malts and hints of chocolate, some dark fruits; prunes, light roast with some smoke elements and a light bitter hop finish. Amazing stout with some light elements of actual scotch ale.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - AUG 24, 2009
Pours brown-black with a fairly large, slowly dissipating tan head. Aroma of toffee, caramel, dirt, coffee, bakers chocolate, and twigs. Tastes fairly caramelly, with dark chocolate, toffee, cappucino, dirt, wood, and earthy leafy hops. FInishes with sweet characteristics first (toffee, caramel, chocolate), followed by a mellow sweetened coffee and nutty fade. Medium bodied, slick, but thicker than the average stout. Not too creamy though. Still, I really enjoy this and the glass never gets boring or tiresome. Good.

TChrome (1455) - Bedford, Texas, USA - AUG 23, 2009
Beer pours very dark brown, almost black with a thick, totally retained tan colored head. Aroma is light chocolate, roasted coffee and earth, all quite subtle. Flavors of coffee, milk chocolate and earth. Just a hint of hop spiciness as well. Pretty tasty beer.

The half a liter bottle poured out deep dark with amber edges and thin tan head. The aroma is, wow! with chocolate, mild caramel and just the right level of earthiness blending together. The taste is smooth and rich with toffee and chocolate moving toward fudge brownie. By midway earthiness joins in as well and it seems to tastes like rich and modestly sweet dark German bread to go along with rich dark fruity esters. Wow again, I love the way these notes come together with the added bonus of a creamy mouthfeel.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2009 500 ml bottle. Black in color. Little head, but it remains throughout. Tastes like a good U.K. stout. Not on a par with Samuel Smiths, but its very satisfying.

An other Belhaven! And a stout! Wow! Has a delightful apperence: black hue with a creamy brown head, and fllat carbonation. I can feel that it is made with very light water (just like the other Belhavens) Aroma of roasted malts, toffee and chocolate. The dark thick body is a bit syrupy and gently hide the 7%(!) alcohol, that you only realize when you drink the beer. Flavour is firstly heavy sweet which turns to a moderate bitterness as you swallow the mouthful and fill the mouth a long time. What else could i say: thank you Belhaven.

Belhaven Scottish Stout is the kind of beer that is big on character, yet low on taste. The malty aspect of this dark brew is strong and holds up well. Although the body is probably best categorized as medium; there are times that I felt like this was closer to a Porter. The smell is really interesting; kind of evoking a graham crackers, salty seawater coffee type of thing. The taste is subtle. In fact, I had a difficult time getting much flavour out of this. As it warmed up, I could get more of its roasted barley and chocolate tastes, but by that time, I was close to finishing the whole pint. The finish is rather weak and doesnt really take me to places that I want to go with a good, strong Stout. But by the time I had finished this, I felt a strong respect for this beer. This would probably work strongly when consumed along with food....a fig pudding or chocolate, or even a shot of rum or brandy.

Pours nearly black with a thick, creamy brown head. Full roast malt aroma with a hint of chocolate. Flavors built aroma the dark fruit end of the roasty spectrum, chocolate and toffee play supporting roles. Slightly sweet, slightly dry. Full body, creamy palate.
