look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

Overall, I'd say this beer is a step above Guinness "Draught." This could be a result of the year or so between having the former and the Belhaven, but the Belhaven seems to have a bit more chocolate, roast, and coffee aroma.

A: Rich dense 1-finger head that lasts all the way down. Streaky lacing. Black on first appearance, but more of a deep ruby/rust-red when held up to the light.

S: Choc, roast, coffee. Light and minerally.

T & M: Slightly watery, good bitterness and balance, very creamy, mostly get roast and light coffee on the palate.

O: I would drink it, but I prefer my stouts to be a little more rich, even if under 5%. Not a bad start for someone who is new to the style.

Poured into a Guiness pint glass jet black with a creamy nitro cascading light beige head atop.Aromas are light with chocolate mocha notes and a bit of tin.Although the nitro pour gave off a creaminess in the head it was really thin,even for the the style.Flavors of dark roast coffee,bitter chocolate and earth,mild flavors with a thin feel is not the best thing in the world.I was expecting better from a pretty good brewery but this just okay.

Poured from a 14.9 oz. nitro can. Has a black color with a 1 inch head. Smell is dominated by coffee. Taste is of coffee and roasted malts, smooth and refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is not overly flavorful for a stout, but a pretty good beer nonetheless.
