Bottle shared by Colin on the train between Copenhagen and Malmo - black pour with tan head. Roasted malty aroma and taste, some tropical fruity notes, cocoa, and some slight burnt notes into the bitter finish. Nice!

Straight outta the bottle, 33 cl. Pitch black. Roasted aroma with dark malts, pines and citrus. Taste is bitter. Oily texture. Lasting dry and roasted finish excellent.

Look - Call it Brown Rajah. Ivory head, medium sized. Decent lacing.
Smell - Grapefruit. Dank. Burnt malt. Chocolate.
Taste - Grapefruit up front. Bitter in the middle. Finish of a stout or porter. Bitter aftertaste.
Feel - Medium carbonation. No bomb. Creamy. Attempts to dry up but takes a while.
Overall - I am a fan of Brown Rajah. Not my favorite black IPA. I wish Brew Kettle would make their labels easier to remove for home brew!

Thanks to Colin for saving me one of these, Cheers Ears. Opaque dark brown beer, tidy pale tan head. Palate is light, semi dry and crisp. Mellow dark malts. A little dark chocolate and a trace of coffee. Nice minty pine hops. Smooth semi dry finish brings mild hop spice. Very nicely joined up and smooth. That minty vibe really lifts it.

Best black IPA I've ever had. Now I need to find more. Just enough malt to make it perfect.

Bottle. Sugary chocolate malt and light orange peel aroma. Cloudy dark brown with minimal head. Sweet chocolate malt and mildly bitter orange peel flavor. Nice body. Not very hoppy but pleasant.
