Sort of an orange peel with dark chocolate beer, as I’m sure you’d understand. You’re probably going to see this under the "Suma Penumbra" label, the lovely Elland wholesalers who have adopted this local beer, so look out for that. It’s still Little Valley.

Bottle. Pours a near black body with a creamy tan head. Looks good! Earthy aromas with malts and chocolate. Moderate roasty profile. Hints of liquorice. Taste is fairly roasty with notes of chocolate and malt. A fair bitterness to round it off. Nice mouthfeel despite the low abv. Avg co2 levels.

Flaska från SB. Svart med högt, fluffigt brunt skum. Lätt rökiga och brända toner tillsammans med en aning apelsin. Len kropp, något lättare. Syrliga rostade toner som lämnar en del kaffebeska i eftersmaken.

Bamsen78 (4779) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2016
Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with airy tan head. Clear aroma of roast and malt, with touches of coffee and mill chocolate. Bitter, roasty flavour with estery and malty notes and touches of coffee, lactose and hops. Roasty and estery aftertaste. Reasonable.

MiP (14732) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2016
Bottle, 4.8%. Fruity aroma, has a little paint thinner to it. Almost black colour, seems clear. Big stable light brown head. The flavour is roasted and creamy to begin worth. Turns more bitter with a coffee note and a touch of sourness.

AshtonMcCobb (4826) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 5, 2016
Bottle from Old Shambles Tavern in York. Appearance - opaque black with a lovely fluffy fawn head. Nose - dark chocolate digestive biscuits. Taste - more of the same. A touch of toffee and honeycomb too. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long balanced dry finish. Overall - a really tasty stout.

Tasting at home. Bottle shared by me. Begint lekker maar als je m door je mond laat gaan is ie beetje rubberig en gruizig. Backlog from 2015/10/21.

Flaske 330ml fra Systembolaget Kiruna. Delt med Rune på Nerstranda 24 Okt 15. Svart. Middels høyt kremaktig skum med litt farge. Lacing. God aroma av melkesjokolade. Smaken er sjokolade & litt røyk. Et behagelig øl.

Svesse (7620) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2015
(Bottle) Black colour with rocky, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of chocolate, black rye bread, roasted oats and a touch of orange peel. Roasted, malty taste with dark chocolate, black rye bread, liquorice, coffee, orange peel and a balanced roasty bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. Tasty and well balanced stout. Nice one.

Första intryck är chokladig, men efter en liten stund framstår den som en aning tunn.
