look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Serving type: growler
