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.

Brunsvart vätska med ljusbrun krämig krona. Doft av kaffe och choklad. Lättdrucken men ändå ganska kraftfull i smaken. En trevlig öl som inte känns tunns trots sina blygsamma 4,8%

Aromen v rostade toner och chocklad. Smaken lite mer fruktig och bärig, dock med chocklad inlägg.

33cl bottle from Systembolaget. Near black, thick lasting brown head. Chocolaty aroma, roasted malt, chocolate cake, licorice. Flavor has mudcake, licorice, coffee, roasted malt. Very smooth. Nicely balanced, full body for this abv. Long roasted, slightly ashy finish. Nice surprise!

Bottle at kaos malmø Nr 2 at TripAdvisor. Nice beer selection for a rest. Strong aroma of malts and sweet licorice. Flavor is roasted malts and licorice very full flavor and very impressive for such a low Alc put.

Mooms (45) - SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2014
Citrus was not necessary. Not deep enough caramel taste. Very well for a stout. Weak Stout, still better than euro lager.

Gusse (12) - SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2014
Flaska från systembolaget som vanligt. Fin, mörk färg, men ganska omustig och eftersmaken är något blaskig.

ClubGonzo (4025) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours a near-black deep brown body with a medium creamy off-white head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, leather and hints of caramel and grains. Taste is dark chocolate, mild coffee, grains and hints of leather and bitter grassy tones. Light, slightly watery body, medium carbonation. Fair enough, but it lacks a bit of body to be a really good stout in its weight class.

Earthy aroma. A bit washed out palate. Quite light for a stout. Not much of an after taste. Still, not bad. A decent summer stout.
