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.

5/5  rDev +27.9%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

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.

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!

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.

look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a dark brown to black with no light showing through. Thick, full, khaki colored head. Head retention is great and chunks of lacing present on the glass wall.

S: Malting really present - molasses, slight smoke, and some hoppy aroma.

T: Sweet molasses up front with the hoppy bitter flavor lingering off the back. Nicely balanced.

M: Creamy, a bit heavier than Another One but still enjoyable with with bitter aftertaste keeping it light.

O: Closer to a black IPA - nicely balanced and really well done.

look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Bottled on 8/2/2013

A: Dark black opaque ale with a massive head. First slow pour produced 4 fingers of fluffy brownish/tan head that left heavy cascading lacing on the glass. Next pour to finish the bottle added another two finger head. Very carbonated and good looking beer.

S: Pure grapefruit sweetness and bitterness in the nose, hints of melon and caramel in there as well.

T: Complex flavor. First rush is sweet grapefruit with hints of honey, cantaloupe and a little caramel. The carbonation kicks in to blend the flavors with some toasted chocolate, a little smoke and some minute amounts of coffee. Very good bitter finish as well as the hops hit first and bitter in the end.

M: Very creamy beer, not quite as thick and heavy as a stout even though it may look like one by the color. Good carbonation that really cuts the flavors in half.

O: Very good beer. I love the strong hop aroma of a good DIPA with the mix of roasted chocolate malt. Well balanced and delicious.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: This poured an opaque black with lots of thick tan had.
S: It smelled like fresh grapefruit and pineapple, with some citrus zest and a hint of dry mocha.
T: It tasted like grapefruit and pineapple and dark chocolate, with some honey and dry roasted coffee. It had a clean bittersweet aftertaste.
M: It was thick with fine natural carbonation. Beautiful body.
D: This was an excellent black IPA. It looked like a top stout, smelled like a top IPA, and tasted like a perfect mix of top stout and top IPA. The body was fantastic, and the finish was smooth, so it was really easy to drink. I find no fault in this brew. One of the best in class, and definitely recommended. Well done, Maine.
