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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
