I am drinking this from a full pint bottle. Label says it is made with well water, using an authentic 200 year old recipe. I believe it, delicious! SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - NOV 17, 2010
Pours a superior, rich, dark, dark brown that looks black and has a full pale tan, white head. Smells of nice, sweet malts and roasted chocolate. Tastes like a classic stout, rich in malty flavor but is complimented by some hop bitterness and sweet chocolate. Full-bodied with a smooth, creamy texture and little carbonation. Belhaven Scottish Stout finishes smooth, like a dream. Definitely needs to be savored, this is a work of art. Spelt (232) - East Kingston, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 25, 2010
A masterpiece. Aroma of chocolate and flowers. Ruby/black color with endless thick brown head with a "raining" foam on the pour. Flavor is deliciously sweet with molasses, bittersweet chocolate and a hint of coffee. Carbonation is light with a modest body making this very smooth and drinkable. Sweet malty finish hangs around forever. Exceptional beer. Need to try on tap. lord_totenkopf (314) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 21, 2010
Creamy, strong yeast starts tingling the taste-buds.Massive, burnt, chocolate-like satisfying stout taste with hidden coffee and hop bouquet in the after-taste. Shooter42 (132) - California, USA - JUL 2, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2013 This is a very good solid stout despite being bottled in a clear bottle. I really enjoyed the chocolate aroma and the malty sweat flavor of this Scottish stout. It was a little thin on the palate but the delicious lingering aftertaste more then made up for its thinness. This is one of my favorite stouts.

Good pouring beer. Nice rich black color with creamy head. Medium texture with moderate carbonation. Toasted malty aroma. Caramel notes come through. Overall, good drinking beer. Grzesiek79 (4300) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 24, 2012

Sweet and roasted flavours. Chocolate and caramel flavours are rich, but it doesn’t feel heavy. I don’t get much from the hops. lumpsowers (287) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 24, 2009
Motor oil pour, low head and lace. Smokey, bready aroma. Bitter malty flavor,with a wheaty bready mouth, and a lot of chocolatey bitter coffee flavors. Medium carb, thick, smokey roasted soy and worcestershire sauce. Lots of chocolate, like a milkshake. Some alcohol comes in at the end. Woody, biscuity, just a hint of worcestershire sauce. Outstanding.
