Three Ravens Dark is a European smoked dark ale. A blend of unique German malts and classic Hallertau hops add intrigue to an elegant, yet welcoming beer. Modelled on an age old Franconian style ready to be rediscovered. Traditional bottle-conditioning naturally carbonates this beer and helps add to its complexity.

Bottle pours ruby opaque brown amber with not much head and no lace. Light burnt toffee aromas, hints of smoke and bacon and light herbal hops. Medium body, complex malt character toffee chocolate, pitted fruit and bready biscuit. Finishes semi sweet and lightly dry, refreshing character

okay smoked beer. The smokey flavour is pleasant but there’s nothing else in this beer to keep it interesting.

Muggus69 (2142) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 11, 2015
330mL bottle Pours a lovely ruby body with a firm tan head. Good nose; prominent smokiness - woody, meaty, slightly earthy - with a solid measure of toasty, nutty, toffee, slightly chocolatey malt. Medium full body, drops away off the palate somewhat quickly with a slight drying smokey astringency. Subdued on the palate - dry meaty smoke, burnt nuts, cocoa, some floral hop notes on a dry finish with moderate bitterness. Not bad, like the level of smoke, would be nicer with a bit more body.

Bottle. Really nice smoke flavour, like drinking smokey bacon, but still super well balanced. Worth a go if you like smoke.

Bottle from Plonk (March 2014). Dark brown, 1cm tan head, oaky/smoky, some citrus, bitter cocoa, some sweet caramel for balance, smoky bitter finish. Ok.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2014
Pours a brown colour with a black with a ruby tinge. Small slightly tanned head. Very smokey aroma as expected. Smells almost of over-roasted coffee with some chocolate. Taste has an initial bitter tinge of cocoa and coffee, followed by some malt sweetness and a slightly citrus flavour. Rounded out with a smokey finish. Not sessionable but nice with dinner

LesArgen (317) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 15, 2013
A smoky aroma as advertised, but there’s also citrus, a little chocolate and some apricot. The flavour is quite sweet with some citrus and caramel. I’ve no idea what makes a good smoked beer, but it’s a nice beer - good body and length - even if it’s not quite my cup of tea.
