Sort of an orange peel with dark chocolate beer, as Im sure youd understand. Youre 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. Its still Little Valley.

Jyrsa (678) - - JAN 3, 2017
Pours black with a strong tan head. Creamy coffee nose. Burnt malt, smoke, just a hint of chocolate. A somewhat coarse palate. Medium body, not too light, not too heavy. An agreeable if not stunning stout.

Provad p Haket i Gteborg under Otto Lundells frnmliga porter- och stoutpresentation. Min 4000:e l som jag bokfrt sedan april 1985. En promenadstout med terhllsam alkoholstyrka. Mrk torr choklad. Lite rostade kaffetoner. verraskande att havre och vete finns med i mskkaret. Vntade ett tag med att provsmaka fr att f upp temperaturen ngra grader. En angenm jubileums-stout.

MPA (983) - Amager (form. Nrrebro&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 (219) - 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.

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.
