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.

Huge, frothy head, easy three fingers, very dark brown with an unusual amount of larger bubbles present, lots of craters across the surface, excellent retention, the lacing likewise thick and chunky and not easily washed away. The liquid is a pure black, while opaque in no way cloudy, can’t discern any visible bubbles. Early appearance in the nose of white grapefruit and orange citrus, this succumbs to cocoa, coffee roast notes, pleasingly strong floral component too, something medicinal, like witch hazel, the plum, cherry fruit scents a touch muted, never turns all that complex but what is there lingers powerfully. Medium-bodied, the creamy mouthfeel helps to delay the arrival of the roastiness and dark chocolate, moments of chicory like bitterness. In the end the citrus adds more sweetness than tartness, still not getting much more than a vestige of mixed black fruits. Carbonation assists in breaking up its inclinations towards heaviness. Pine resin, tar and campfire smoke contribute to the inner mouth perfume through the finish. Thankfully not over roasted so ends up with a clean ending rather than too astringent or bitter.

Pours a deep black with a tall latte-colored head.

Smells very roasty, with clear notes of citrusy coffee bean and a little bit of dark, raw chocolate. The dark roast flavours are well balanced by fresh, juicy hops which adds some orange with a hint of pine or spice.

The taste is roasty and dark overall, as the hops are very well- blended in both the scent and the taste. The taste, however has a little bit clearer of a hop presence. Chocolate and coffee up front with a burst of subtle but juicy hop resins, before ending on another beautifully complex roasted character.

Was expecting this to be a little more hop-forward -- not to say they are lacking in presence, rather very well-blended and complimentary.
