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.

ClubGonzo (3951) - 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.

klippx (33) - Solna, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2014
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.

Bottle 33 cl from Systembolaget. Black with a light brown head. Milk chocolate, coffee, very nice bitterness, slight burnt tone. Medium/full body, low carbonation, bitter finish, smooth. A lot fuller body than I expected from such a low alcohol stout.
