Notes/Commercial Description:
Hoppy and roasty American IPA, brewed as the dark-colored counterpart to Another One (both beers incorporate the exact same kettle and dry hopping schedule). Weez presents a blend of hoppy and roasty notes on the nose, followed by hoppy resins on the tongue, and finishes with a deep roast.

The beer pours like black mocha coffee with a beautiful head of medium sized, khaki colored, medium sized bubbles that sit above two finger widths in the glass and take their time in calming down. The head leaves a lacing of fat, thick bubbles that fluff out into the glass. In body the beer is impenetrable the eye. On the nose the beer smells gorgeously fruity with citric tangerine and nectarine with a touch of pine. In the roast, the beer is light with caramel and a faint touch of roasted chocolate. On the tongue, the beer tastes of citric bitter with a light sweet roast that draws a little bitterness from it and builds in the mouth. The beer also has a light acidic pop, presumably from the hops, which leaves the mouth with a wet scrim of saliva. This beer begins as sweet, however, and slowly works towards a more bitter palate, which is wonderfully encouraging of future sips. In flavor, the beer begins as fruity hops, with sweet orange and grapefruit citrus touching the tongue before a healthy roast of coffee and light char moves in and overrides those flavors. Chocolate and light metallic flavors also tingle on the tongue with the roast. The finish returns to fresh citric juice with a touch of roasted malts, and the aftertaste is of lightly roasted malts with a soft touch of metallic flavoring. On the mouth, the beer feels medium in body with a little bit of weight. The carbonation is creamy and smooth, providing just a kiss of fierceness making the beer wonderfully clean and crisp on the mouth. The mouth is left with a nice bit of saliva to cancel out the acids, and a slight bitter bite on the tongue. Overall, this is a beautifully complex beer. It sits somewhere between a hoppy porter and an India Black Ale, with a beautiful nose of citric hops and tastes nicely roasty with a good juicy bite from the hops. Color me impressed by this beer. It is sweet on the front and bitter on the end. I wouldn’t call it a “Black IPA” by any stretch of the imagination, and I will continue arguing for some differentiation between India Dark Ales and their roastier cousins (Weez sides more on the roasty cousin side). This beer is great though, and is another success from the MBC. Try this beer.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a deep balk hue with a two finger frothy tan head there was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured roasted malts, burnt sugar and herbal hops.

The taste offered elements of charcoal and smoke with piney and herbal hops.

The mouthfeel was full with a dry finish.

Overall a superior black IPA.
