Bottle. Pours dark amber with a short beige head that doesn’t last long. Nose is slightly sweet and fruity with notes of cherries, toffee, berries and boiled sweets. Flavour is similar but has a stronger malt presence. Smooth oily mouthfeel with minimal carbonation and a medium to short finish that starts sweet becoming bitter. I think the style is probably right, this does seem more like an ESA than a bitter, but its very nice nonetheless.

another good offering from 3 ravens. nice full boddied malt character balanced with nice punhc of bitterness as any bitter should have. having that extra malt backbone makes this more intersting as most bitters seem to taste all the same.

Ok, so I probably got the style wrong. Very much a bitter of steriods with bucket loads of flavour. Beautifully handled malts and hop character, the latter imparting a much bigger impact than what I would typically expect of the genre. Just the faintest touch of fruitcake sweetness is nice and fills the palate out. Fruit character builds right through the palate. Best local beer I’ve had for a while.
