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.

4.03/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from the bottle into a Dogfish Head Ale glass. Bottled June 11th, pretty fresh as can be.

A big wonderful creamy and foamy light tan coffee brown like head forms, and settles with a big island puck of three fingers nicely. Bottle pours a nice dark walnut brown and gets into the glass with a very dark nearly black blody with good brown walnut hues. Impressive aggressive it looks like ice cream in a glass.

Nose is very complex but also quite subtle. This is not a big hop profile or bowl you over, but there's hints of citrus and tropical fruit, mostly rind, and earth pine dank qualities. Chocolate whiffs and the fruity hop profile mixes nicely creating a nice coffee angle on the drink for the aroma like piping hot.

Palate matches nicely but is very different from most dark IPAs I've had. Tastes like a standard IPA, with the roast character coming only in the aftertaste. Matches the nose with fruity qualities, and a nice creamy feel with moderate carbonation. Fruit rind like qualities mix in the mid palate with a lightness, with creamy coffee finishing. Chocolate angle though is a bit lost with maybe a hint of earth like bitterness finishing.

Overall it's very different from most Cascadian Dark, Black IPAs, or whatever you want to call it, but it's a solid well made beer from a brewery I expect only good things to come from. With this beer they are still delivering.

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

A: deep brown; with a fairly aggressive pour, a 3 finger khaki head that recedes, but it still there when the beer is gone; a lot of lacing;

S: deeply roasted malt; mocha, bittersweet chocolate;

T: follows the nose; bitterness kicks in mid-palate; finish combines roasted malts, espresso, and a moderate bitterness;

M; medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: great beer and great brewery; nothing else to say;
