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.

Kavu (1970) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 18, 2014
0,33l bottle from Systembolaget, Haparanda. Pours dark brown with a low light tan head. Aroma is roasted malts. Flavor is roasted malts with some liquorice in the finish. Drinkable, if a bit thin.

Het begin belooft nog veel maar de afdronk is bijzonder matig. Erg vlak en weinig bijzonder bier.

KoNrRiI (389) - Århus, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2014
0.5 bottle. Black color and a big, brownish head but it doesn’t leave any lacing though. Strong dark malty aroma, a lot of coffee, wood, and some licorice and an itsy-bitsy . Taste is true to the style as well with a sweet, malty character as well as some coffee-like flavors. Medium body, creamy texture, and flat carbonation. Finish is more chocolatey than the rest, not necessarily sweeter but more interesting; it also has some of the promised citrus and orange sourness. Overall the beer is good, not a prime example of stouts but it simply has no major flaws besides a little too soft a body.

stravale (1898) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAR 24, 2014
Cask @ Closed Shop, Sheffield [210314] [From memory as notes lost]
Black, thin beige head. Burnt roast in the aroma and taste, some dark fruit flavour but mainly burnt roast. Thin mouthfeel, Nowhere near as good as the Vanilla Porter tried on the same night.

elosop (122) - SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2014
Beckmörk med liten skumkrona. Ser ut som mörkbryggt kaffe i glaset. Omedelbar beska som stannar kvar länge. Angenäm kaffesmak dominerar, men tämligen tunn för att vara en stout. Nja. Guiness vinner alla ggr.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2014 Bottle. Almost black colour. Roasted, coffee, licorice, ash, a bit fruity. Light body.

wimpyjoe (2967) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle. Black with a head that disappears fast. Clearly a stout in nose and texture but it has a fair sweetness running through it.

Seffle (113) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle from Systemet. Very dark brown body with a brown espressolike head. Roasted malt in the nose and a surprisingly citric first taste. However, a very rapidly vanishing palate with a rather unpleasant bitterness. Far from my favourite stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jorn69 (560) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2014
@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget (17:-). En hel del rostade toner, lite sötma, en del kaffetoner, medelfyllig till fyllig. Ganska lång och besk avslutning med rostade toner.
