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.

MPA (977) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - JUL 31, 2016
Bottle. Black with a huge light brown head. Roasted malt aroma with notes of chocolate, cocoa and dark fruit. Flavour is slightly malty sweet with some chocolate and a roasted malty bitter finish along with a slight citrussy freshness. Above medium carbonation. Decent, but nothing worth going for again.

Pedro_Pinho (174) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2016
Pour black liquid with a big, foamy brown and creamy head. Aroma is roasted barley, coffee and malt. Taste is slightly bitter with coffee presence. Overall good, but rather regular british stout.

ej (1254) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2016
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.

Samuel214 (606) - SWEDEN - JAN 28, 2016
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 (5071) - 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 (15304) - 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.
