Beer added by: ToasterChef on 06-13-2013

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Bottled on 12-31-13

Pours a dark chestnut brown color that appears pitch black and completely opaque in the glass without even the slightest hint if lighter color. There's a two finger, frothy beige head that very slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Very good retention with streaks of soapy lacing coating the glass on the way down.

Dank, earthy aroma with prominent resinous, oily hops along with grassy pine needle, a touch of citrus and a slightly smokey, dark malt backbone. Underneath the earthy hops, the smokey element of the malt bill gives off a very subtle phenolic presence but it isn't very distracting or unpleasant. Some liquid smoke and charcoal along with dark chocolate, oatmeal, robust coffee bean and sweeter, dessert-like malt character. The malts begin to overpower the hops as it warms but the nose remains complex and inviting.

On the fuller end of medium body with slight viscosity and soft carbonation. Very dry and bitter up front with the earthy hops and charred malt flavors playing off of each other. Strong sticky, resinous hop flavor up front with grass, pine and spruce tip but it's missing the subtle citrus presence found in the nose. The hops are countered by a deeply roasted dark malt backbone that is somewhat acrid and nearly burnt tasting. The smoke presence is a bit stronger than in the aroma with hints of ash, charcoal and burnt toast along with used coffee grinds, oatmeal and dark chocolate. This beer has a decent balance of hops and malt but tastes very one dimensional with a ton of tongue scraping, dry bitterness and overwhelming roast. Needs a lot more sweetness to balance things out. Overall, this isn't a terrible beer but it's boring, a bit harsh and tough to drink.

Dark with a big hunka dark beige foam. Smells like menthol and roast malt. Tastewise roast malt is complimented by lemony menthol. Some grapefruit. Very watery, Weez doesn't really catch on the tongue. Minimal bitter. Balanced though I'm not sure that's what you want from this style.

I believe that Another One and Weez are the same hop bill but AO is a traditional IPA and Weez is a black IPA. Interesting that AO shows off lemony citrus hop characteristics and Weez displays lemony menthol hops.

Personnally do not consider myself much of a judge, also a smoker so impaired to start with - more for my own reference and should do this while drinking it but its done already but here goes -
Color - on the Dark side
Smell - guess I expected like a stout, but hops mixed in with oak is what I got
Taste - ipa sorta like dogfish 60 min but perhaps more bitter
Mouthfeel - not too light - not too heavy
Overall - big enough without overpowering, wish I could pick out hops better, something in it I might try to tone down, overall not bad. Would definitely give it another go.

Ok now I've read others reviews - nobody else got oak, closest was smoky, maybe thats a better description.

Not my fave from Maine Beer Co.

A rich, deep, brown-black with a golden off-white foam... This beer's malt gives a burnt toast char aftertaste that just doesn't suit me. But, the fragrance is great and the mouthfeel, while a little lighter than I'd expected... has active little bubbles that keep it far from feeling flat.

Hops are still present. Maine Beer Co loves to showcase their hops.

My introduction to mbc, which I feel like is unfortunate because I hear they have such beautiful, wonderfully crafted beers. Pours dark, dark brown, nearly black with lingering tan head and lacing. The nose comes across like a pale ale, with a slight roasty-malty backbone, but predominately hops, but not citra style hops, more east coast or European. Slightly above a medium body, the first thing that hits your taste buds is a roasty malt wave that lasts for a second then almost drops off completely leaving a nice hop aftertaste in the back of the throat.
Overall, not a bad attempt at a very difficult genre. The black ipa is all about balance, where as with this beer it's almost split: Dark in the beginning, ipa in the end. Not bad, but wouldn't buy again.

BOTTLE: 1 pint .9 fl oz. Branded pry-off pressure cap. Brown glass.

[This review is truncated. A full one will follow when I'm able.]

Cost was $8.39 USD. Served cold into a tulip at low altitude in New York City and allowed to warm somewhat over the course of consumption. 7.2% ABV.

No bubble show forms as it's poured.

HEAD: 2 fingers wide. Khaki colour. Creamy, thick, full, and frothy. Leaves a light coating of lacing on the sides of the glass as it recedes. Retention is good - about 7 minutes.

BODY: Opaque solid black. No yeast particulate or hop sediment is visible.

It's generally appealing, but it doesn't stand out as unique or special.

AROMA: Roast, cream, piney hops, evergreen hops, and dark malts. Has some nice sweetness right on the finish.

Aromatic intensity is average. It's pretty appealing for a black IPA, and seems to have more balance than most beers in the style do.

No yeast character, alcohol, off-notes or yeast character is detectable.

TASTE/TEXTURE: Dark malts and chocolate malts provide the sweet backbone. Creamy. The hop profile is surprisingly subtle, with notes of pine and evergreen. Has a coating creamy feel on the palate, with apt softness, moderate thickness, and a full body. The hops aren't overly bitter (as is usually the case in the style), and they seem well-tailored to the malts. Average depth, duration, and intensity of flavour. No yeast character, alcohol, or off-notes come through.

Adequate complexity and subtlety. I do think it's balanced - which is uncommon in a Black IPA - but it's lacking in terms of intricacy. Smooth, wet, unrefreshing, and well-carbonated.

OVERALL: It's quite drinkable and enjoyable, but isn't world-class. Easily one of the better Black IPAs I've had recently, but only because it's not egregiously imbalanced. I do like it, but I wouldn't get it again at its high price point. Well-worth trying, but not Maine Beer Co.'s finest work.

A beautiful pour: Nicely sculptured head, voluptuous lacing, dark color.

Mild nose perhaps a hint of toasted malt.

Flavor-- it comes on with exuberance but fades rapidly to a blank slate.. I wondered where everything went --- and so quickly!

It's got the beginnings of a nice ale-- that fruity hops and bitterness. The beer's dark in color but no real "weight" of anything toasted or baked-- or even half-baked. But it's flavor character-- something about it from it's initial debut on my pallet to it's short finish left me in a quandary-- I suddenly reminisce about Maine Beer Co's other libations.

Mouthfeel is good-- not outstanding, or noteworthy but it's good.

Overall I think this beer is wonderful and I could easily tank a quart right here an now with great satisfaction. Then again if I could tank a quart of any of MBCo's brews this one might just be a first course and I'd find myself welded to my seat by a different brew.

Bottle poured into a stein

Beautiful , huge four finger tan foam cap . Big and frothy. Puffy lacings on the glass as it settles down. Pitch black liquid...who knows what lurks in the darkness?

Aroma of pine with a hint of citrus.

Hops forward, bit of coffee malt. Bitter finish, not too sharp. Medium mouthfeel.

Recommended by my local beer shop, I gave it a try. Did not know what I was trying as the label said "ale." It is a black ale with a good dose of hops. I tried it, but, not my type of beer.

500 mL bottle poured into an oversized snifter. Bottled 6/11/2013, so it's a little old. I had Maine Another One a couple of days prior to this review.

Appearance - My experience with Another One yielded a small puddle on my counter from overflow, so I was careful with this pour. Nonetheless, the mocha head was enormous. Two fingers atop a black beer that in total completely filled my CBS snifter. Great retention. Lacing forms rings inside the glass.

Smell - Bright citrus, lots of dark roasted malts. Loads of coffee. Cuts into the citrus. Perhaps muting some of the orange and tropical notes, yielding more of a grassy hop aroma.

Taste - Again it's a battle of hops and dark malts, never quite in harmony. Grapefruit and grassy herbal hopes with an almost burnt coffee flavor. The malt flavor lacks a little bit of depth. No sweetness to it. Slightly smokey notes. Mild bitter finish, as much from malt as from hop.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, dropping off to medium light in the finish. Not quite rich enough for what it's trying to do.

Overall - I expected some really great things after enjoying the dickens out of Another One. This just didn't impress me anywhere near as much. Also not as enjoyable as Collaboration Time.

3.5/5  rDev -12.9%

A: As I decant this into a pint glass, I feel... fear. I've poured too aggressively, sloppily in fact, and stand in horror as I witness a five-finger head grow into an intimidating, seething whirlpool darkness. The brew itself is like an abyss, as black and dark as any porter or stout and lets no light through it whatsoever... like a black hole. But that head... it's ashy and sticky... with a structure like that of rising bread dough or the foam from egg whites (it even has stiff peaks!). It's possibly the darkest, dirtiest head I've ever seen.

S: Neither the melodrama, nor the dread, ends with appearances. The smell makes me think a mean imperial stout mixed with a mean double IPA. Simultaneously, I'm getting chocolate, pine, burnt wood, toasted grain, citrus pith and tree sap.

T: KABOOM. I'm blown away. Not that I fall in love with it, but my taste buds are destroyed. Dark and toasty malts provide for flavors of bittersweet chocolate and pine cone, a dry graininess and the darkest rye bread, with some spice character. Make me think of a bitter Mexican mole.

M: Thick, full bodied assault on your palate. I would make the motor oil comparison, but that's cliche by now. Definitely syrupy, and the head resembles and tastes like a bitter chocolate whipped cream.

O: These are not all qualities I love in a brew, so points are flowing less than they might. But there is no denying that this is an interesting, bold (huge), and distinctive offering from Maine.

500mL bottle poured into 4 Hands tulip

Deep black pour with a thick, frothy khaki colored head resting on top. Copious amounts of lacing coat the glass while drinking, strong retention. Pine and roasted dark malts in the nose with cocoa powder, soft bitterness and chocolate sweetness. Bitter and hoppy up front, quickly tempered by the heavier malt profile. Chocolate, molasses, cocoa, roasted malt and soft warmth. Touches of pine and citrus towards the finish. Creamy medium body, nice carbonation, a bit dry on the tongue.

Hoppy dark ales have never been a true favorite style of mine - while this was still tasty I don't see dropping $8+ on another bottle anytime soon.

Black and opaque with a light brown frothy and foamy head that lingers long with lumpy moguls on top. Low aroma of dark malt and hops. Rich flavor of roasty malt with accompanying bitterness contribution, a bit ashy, hops accompany well and do not overpower, good balance. Big fat legs and rings of lace line the glass. Rich and full and round mouthfeel. Roasty hop bitterness lingers. Great beer.

500ml bottle served in Pretty Things wine glass. Bottled 6/11/13. Thanks to BenTenison for the brew!

A: Pours a black color with a tan head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thick collar that leaves some sticky sheets of lace down the glass.

S: Big hops up front. Citrusy and fruity with a dry, roasty malt body. Light chocolate note with a

T: Roasted malts with a light piney hop body. Light citrus fruit notes. Dry and slightly chalky in nature. Little bready sweetness on the finish.

M: Medium bodied with a medium plus carbonation level. Sweet, chalky and dry finish.

O: Solid black ale overall. I liked the concept MBC did with Another One and this beer. Interesting take on recipes for sure, but I'm still not the biggest fan of the black ale style. Mostly become to dry for my liking. This one straddles that line ever so slightly.

Just finished Another One, so time to do this back to back. Not expecting a lot since I'm not a huge fan of American Black Ales, but we'll see. Bottled 09/03/13 same as Another One.

A darker mocha colored 2 finger fluffy head similar to Another One but darker colored, fades semi slowly with nice lacing, pitch black beer with no light coming through.

Nose brings a lot more of the dark malts, little mocha and roast, a little fresh coffee and roast, little dark powdered cocoa mix aroma, lots of black malt too. Hops are there but not much, they are drowned out by the dark malts and roast, the hops that come out are more on the spicy chewy side, amazing how the same hops can take a completely different perspective depending on how the malts mask or complement it. The deeper I nose a slight hint of a citrus and fruity hop character come through, a hint of pineapple interestingly, and some fluffy nougat.

Taste brings chocolate, dark malts, powdered cocoa, baker's choc, and a little black malt to start. A little creamy, and some light caramel and nougat, but not a lot of either, with touch of roast and coffee. Then Hops come through a lot more than the nose, but again the spicy chewy aspect of the hops. Again amazing how different the hops taste than on Another One. The nice tropical fruits, resin, and citrus really get masked by the dark malts, and the spicy chewy hops shine through with help from the tannins of the dark roasty malts. I eventually get a little citrus, a mild floral hop, touch of rind, and a little generic fruit but not much, and it's hard to get any of that. The caramel comes out a bit more as it warms, as well as a bit of orange peel citrus hop. Finish is dry but not as dry as Another One, a little sticky like, quite bitter and about the same overall bitterness, long lingering bitterness, hint of pine but mostly spicy and chewy.

Mouth is med bod, a little creamy, decent carb almost fluffy.

Overall not bad for a black IPA, nice malts, the hops get a little in the way of it, and the malts get in the way of the hops, so overall again I think this is a completely flawed style, and this shows why. Two different beers, same hops, different malts, the wheat and light malt beer in the Another One was awesome and the hops brought resin, tropical fruit, juicy generic fruit, floral aroma, very nice hop character. The dark malts drown out the nice part of the hops, and contrast what comes through from the nice hops, and brings out the less interesting parts of the hops, just not nearly as tasty.

Poured from a bottle into a true pint, the beer is a dark, muddled, ruby-brown coloring with a tall, frothy, big bubbled, light brown head. Aromas of floral and resiny hops characteristics, with a piney highlight, as well as heavy roast and subtle char profiles. Very balanced smell, with a dark, richly sweet ribbon tucked away in there as well. Flavors are hop forward, bitter and resiny, with a blast of citrus tart and sweet, also. Roasty and tangy sweet backbone. Hints of smoke throughout. The body is light and smooth, doing a good job supporting the robust flavors. Decent lacing left on the glass. The aftertaste is bitter hops and grapefruit tartness, well balanced and blended. Slightly bitter, slick, lingering finish. Very tasty, and very drinkable.

A hefty pour into a chalice. Bottled on 6/11/13.

Don’t let the color of this beer fool you. Wonderful aroma. I can inhale this one all night and the color and the head are great. But the taste does not match. Needs more of a malty backbone, some sweetness for balance. This is no Sublimely Self Righteous or Wookey Jack.

A – Pours brown with a mousy light brown 3-finger lasting head. A nice sticky lacing.

S – Floral hoppiness, sweetness, faint pepper.

T – Hoppy bitterness, unbalanced like an IPA, some roastiness, but minimal malitness.

MF – Medium light bodied, dry finish, but not necessarily a lasting bitterness.

Appears pitch black big khaki tan head forms fine even spread lacing on the sides of my chalice, great looking black IPA.

Smells of anise, herbal hops, and mild citrus peel notes with black dark roasted malt layers.

Flavor slightly tart and bitter with citrus notes, dark milky dark chocolate notes, herbal bittering hops cleans out the rest of the semi sweet malt character.

Mouthfeel is medium ale with a dark chocolate citric peel bitterness dry character left with each sip. Nothing like any of the other Maine beer company's dark beer characteristics.

Overall, I'm excited to see more dark hoppy offerings from them.

Poured into a tulip. Bottled 4/1/14.

A - Looks great in the glass. Beautiful 2-finger head, nice solid black color, plenty of retention and lacing.

S - Pretty decent aromas of hops, citrus, and just a hint of coffee. Not bold, but rather subtle.

T - The beer was bottled 3 weeks before I drank, so I figured for a black ale, this wouldn't be a problem. But the beer seemed flat and very mild in its flavors. Neither the hops nor the malts seemed to shine through. More of a subtle metallic taste. Even some more bitterness would have helped.

M - Not much carbonation, so again I don't know if it was a week past its prime.

O- Since I like Maine a lot, this was a disappointment for me. Maybe I'll try again in the future if I grab a fresh bottle, but this was not my favorite in this style and certainly not my favorite from MBC.

500ml Bottle

Bottled 8/6/13
Drank 10/16/13

Thanks again for the big ol' sampling of Maine Beer Co goodies, facesnorth! A tilt of the bottle releases a chestnut brown beer that appears more like black coffee when filling the glass. The chocolatey brown head forms slowly but before I know it fills as much glass space as the body and has no intention of retreating. Big puffy lacing clings tightly to the glass as it finally does settle. Maine Beer Co. sure knows how to brew a good looking beer.

The malt profile is tough for me to dissect as complex and well balanced as it smells. Soft coffee, black bread, and smooth dark chocolate come together. Clean alcohol adds a welcomed spiciness. Bright pine shows up with a hoppy bite and grapefruit pith adds a touch of fruitiness. There's even a little hazelnut coming forward with warming. I'm not usually a black IPA guy but Weez is smelling good.

A very mild astringency hits quick and fades just as fast before the main characters of robust pine, black bread, and dark chocolate kick in mid-palate. A quick flash of pithy grapefruit kicks in before the swallow and the finish is lightly roasted coffee, hazelnut and bitter pine that followed through from the middle. That quick astringency takes a little something away but the overall flavor is welcomed.

Weez is rich, velvety and smooth. The body itself feels substantial but is actually only moderate in weight and very easy to drink. The pine bitterness grows over time and gets me a little fatigued when combined with the roast but a 500ml fits just fine.

Yet another well made beer by the folks up at Maine Beer Co., Weez. Like I said above, I'm not a normally a black IPA guy but this one fits the bill nicely with a complex malt profile and bright hoppiness. I'd give Weez another go if it was available in my area. Thanks, Ryan!

A: Black. Pours a 2 finger, tight, frothy, brown head. Settles very slowly, leaving a thick persistent foam blanket and a thick persistent beer ring.

S: Earthy malt, dark chocolate, and a distinct nutty tone.

T: Bitter roasted nuts with a little black licorice.

M: Hearty and roasty, with a bitter finish.

D: Sip and savor.

Atmosphere is really strong. Great persistent head, and thick persistent lacing. Nose is Earthy and malty with nuts and dark chocolate. Bitter nutty character. Overall, this is a good quaff.

I didn't know this was a black ale until I poured it into my snifter. I think if I had known it was a black ale I would have passed; I'm not that big a fan of the style.

The beer was black with a thick tan head. There was a good deal of lace.

Aroma of piney hops and chocolate.

Ditto for the taste. Pine and chocolate.

Pretty hop forward.

Good example of the style, just not my cup of tea.

Consumed 8/19/13

Bottle dated 8/6/13

Appearance: Dark, dark brown, bordering on black - pours with a big, thick, creamy, dark tan/light brown head - eventually fades to a smaller, yet still solid cap (not as impressive as Another One, but still impressive) - leaves some nice streaks and blobs of lacing

Smell: Burnt, charred malts and burnt, charred citrus and pine - supposedly this has the same hops as Another One, but they are really muted by the burnt - burnt, charred grains and toast - straight-up chocolate malts, with some dark chocolate, baker's chocolate, and semisweet chocolate - burnt citrus rinds, pine needles, and burnt tropical fruits - some earthy, grassy, herbal, and minty notes

Taste: Follows the aroma with a lot of burnt and a lot of citrus - burnt, charred chocolate malts, char, dark chocolate, baker's chocolate, burnt toast, burnt grains - burnt pine, with some resin - burnt citrus rinds and some burnt tropical notes - herbal, grassy, earthy - some sweetness, with burnt molasses

Mouthfeel: Medium body, somewhat creamy, nicely carbonated, finishes burnt and dry, kind of dirty

Overall: Points deducted for not being called Weezy, for not being endorsed by Lil Wayne, and for not being purple drank

This is a very good black IPA, but it doesn't quite have the charm of Another One. The hop profile works better with lighter malts. This is still definitely worth a try, though.

Pour is dark brown , mostly opaque, with a tight creamy tan head. Nose has a roasted malt up front, light smokiness, rich brown malt, and strong citrus hop behind. Taste is even more smoky and roasted. There is brown malt, notes of chocolate, bitter roast and the hops are light but have a presence in back. Lighter body, nice carbonation.

Poured black with a dense head of creamy tan foam. Long lasting lace, sticky in the glass. Extended head retention as well.

Mild roasty aroma, light trace of ash, lightly piney hop oils.

Taste is roasty and moderately bitter, piney hops linger into the dry aftertaste. Creamy and fairly substantial in body. Char lingers momentarily in the middle, fading into bitter resinous hops. Overall it's good for what it is, but for the price I'll keep drinking Wookey Jack.
