On-tap at The Brew Kettle in Strongsville, Ohio

Pours black with some auburn hues; one finger off-white head that leaves great lacing and retention. The aromas are awesome. Lots of sticky grapefruit with hints of pineapple. Subtle garlic notes, which are enjoyable. Decent amount of cocoa malts. Flavors are very sharp and earthy. Lots of grass and pine needles. Lots of citrus. More grapefruit and hints of tangerines. Hop vine and hop leaves in the mix. Hints of dark chocolate. More bitter than sweet. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied; creamy and silky with active carbonation. Alcohol goes unnoticed. It's fun and easy to drink.

This is an awesome Black IPA. It's been awhile since I've had it, and I was very happy to revisit it. It does a great job of doing White Rajah justice. I wouldn't mind seeing this in bottles. Great stuff. Recomended if given the opportunity.

Served on tap (and enjoyed in a growler) from Spinoza's in Beavercreek, Ohio. This poured a very dark brown with a two inch head that left splotchy lacing. The smell is malty and hoppy, with roasted malt and toffee but there's not much that stands out (while White Rajah has an amazing smell that rivals the best IPAs). The taste consists of a 40/40 balance between chocolate and pine from the hops with caramel and coffee rounding things out. As for the mouthfeel, this is fairly smooth and minimally carbonated with bitterness that seems to come more from the coffee than the hops and that is moderately thick. Overall, I'm not a big fan of black IPAs, and so I expected to enjoy this less than White Rajah. Still, I think there's some room for improvement here. This is more difficult to find than the White, probably because (I believe) this is only available on tap and tends to go quick.
