Ravens in the Scottish Highlands were once thought to possess the gift of second sight, the ability to see future events before they occur. If you are a fan of rich, malty ales then our raven foresees you loving this beer. This beer is built all around the malted barley with hops playing a balancing role. This beer is reddish-brown in color with a wonderful malt nose, delicious malt flavors and a full bodied finish.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Draught:   Bright copper, thin to moderate foamy tannish head, somewhat nice lacing.   Fairly assertive nutty aroma, bready, but not too much in the way of peat or smoked/charred wood.   Soft breadiness on the tongue, malty, a bit nutty, with very soft mealy notes.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft finish, not too big.   Malty, but a touch of cereal lingers.   Wished it were a bit sweeter, has a slight astringent maltiness, perhaps husky straw type bitterness.   Otherwise decent.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 18, 2012
On draught at Elephant & Castle in Seattle during a "Meet The Brewers" event. The beer pours dark brownish-amber with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is malty with some caramel and hops notes. Medium body with flavors of roasted malt, resiny hops and caramel. The finish is sweet with an earthy malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

improvjock (317) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2011
Tap. Pours a dark reddish brown with very small off-white head. Cherry and other fruits in the aroma. Sour apple, and cherry in the flavor. Heavy mouthfeel. Smooth with a high alcohol content. Tastes more like a light Barley Wine. Decent beer, good to warm you in the winter.
