COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after a flock of ravens, this is the beer that started it all for us.

This assertively hopped medium-bodied American Black Ale exudes a combination of woodsy and grapefruit hop notes, blended together with a complex dark malt character and subtle hints of chocolate and coffee.

This beer isn’t for the weak of palate or heart.
