3 Ravens Black 55 is the darker cousin of our 55 American Pale Ale. Demonstrating classic US pale ale hop flavours and aromas with mild, lingering notes of dark chocolate and coffee and depth of colour from the addition of de-husked roasted barley and wheat. Traditional bottle conditioning naturally carbonates this beer and helps add to its complexity.

Pours black with a large head. Nose shows a mix of hops and some darker malt. Roasty barley, chocolate, piny hops and resinous notes. Good stuff. Flavours are quite focused on the malt, with burnt coffee and charcoal notes alongside some piny, resinous hops. Carbonation is perhaps a little high.

Bottle. Black with an inch of light tan head that lasts well. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, cold coffee, licorice. Quite dry tasting with mocha and not much else besides bright hops. Pleasant with a nice fresh whack of hops, but a bit empty in the middle.

Bottle from Slowbeer. Darkest brown-black, tight tan head, dry roastiness, pine hop aroma, bitter chocolate/coffee, like chocolate coated coffee beans, some resiney/pine hop bitterness, quite dry finish, thin palate. Quite good.
