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.

Had this in a pint glass dated 40114.

Appearance: Nothing less than drop dead gorgeous. Beautiful stout like color with 4 finger head (okay maybe I poured too much) that was so thick and pillowy that it did not go away until the very last sip. Utterly beautiful lacing.

Smell: big citrus, mango but with some dark coffee, mocha, and dark spice.

Taste: classic IPA but with some porter aspect. Some dark coffee with chocolate malt coming through. Citrus shines as well with a clean finish.

Mouthfeel: luscious, just enough carbonation.

Overall: Another amazing beer from an amazing brewery. One of my all time favorite breweries ever. Just simply amazing.

Bottled 4/01/14
Wonderful dark colored black ipa with a thick mocha head that retreats quickly. Gently lacing along the sides of the glass. Hop aroma is present as well as roasted coffee. Minute chocolate taste with some hop bitterness and stronger coffee flavor. Medium body though pretty creamy and some char at the finish. Overall I must say this is a pretty amazing beer. Really enjoyed this one and can't wait to get my hands on another bottle!

Served out of a bottle into Sierra Nevada IPA glass.

A- Pitch black opaque with solid light tan head.

S- Coffee, slightly smokey aroma (slightly stuffed nose, so it's hard to nail down anything exactly).

t-burnt roast malt bitterness along with classic hop bitter citrus flavor.

M- prickly carbonation.

O- One of the best Black IPAs of all time

The beer comes in a gorgeous black color with a fluffy brown head. It looks like a wonderful imperial stout.

The aroma follows with the Citra of bright pineapple, apricot, peaches, orange peel, and then a nice roasted malt of coffee and bitter chocolate, but mostly the citrusy hops. Think Wookey Jack.

The flavor follows with the hops in the front. Pineapple, orange peel, grapefruit, bright hop notes, along with a herbacious and citrus peel bitterness throughout. A very light clean bready malt with barely any sweetness. Then midway there’s a roasted malt, adds a bit of depth of coffee flavor. Very gentle.

My new favorite black IPA. This is still very much an IPA, with a perfect medium light amount of roasted malt.

A - Pours near black with a monster outs 3 finger dark mocha/chocolate colored head, fantastic retention and perfect lacing. Heaps of mountainous head remain 10 minutes later.

S - Big fresh hoppy aromas, floral/resinous, wet juicy/citrusy, extremely juicy hops and piney hops. Burnt and very roasty. Smells fantastic.

T - Big roasty and resinous pine flavors mix with citric rinds and bitter tropical hops. Leafy and resinous. Lots of dark roasty malts. I aftertaste is roasty and wet then dry bitter hops. Awesome

M - Absolutely perfect. Light and refreshing, decently carbonated but smooth, very refreshing.

O - The best black ipa I've ever had. Looks and mouthfeel are perfect.
