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.

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.
