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.

Served in a snifter from the 16.9 ounce bottle.

Pours viscous and dark like a great stout. Cocoa-colored head, chewy and pillow-like, forms over the dark body. My mind is thinking stout here. 5

Citrusy orange hops are immediately noticeable. Then dark roast malts that are faintly coffee-roast-like. Resinous and pungent overall on the nose. 4

Wow! Back to thinking this is a stout! Huge dark roast malt and coffee with a light caramel drizzle up front, so essentially a great stout. Then citrusy and floral hops dive into the mix. The finish is dry and cocoa-like. Light notes of onion become noticeable and the finish starts to taste chocolatey and smokey. 4

Feels more like a Cascadian Dark than a stout but there's a roasted smoky feel between the surly carbonation and hop spice and bitterness. There's great creaminess to boot. 4.25

A uniqur mash-up of an IPA, Cascadian Dark and a Stout. Enjoyable on its own.

Serving: 500 mL bottle poured into a Riedel Vinum Zinfandel glass (marked "111814").

Appearance: Deep dark brown with a good khaki head that lingers as a floating foam cap and leaves sticky lacing.

Smell: Toasty roasted grains, burnt caramel; citrus, pine and slight dank vegetal notes of fresh hops.

Taste: Roasted grains, coffee, caramel and slight earthy smokiness; well integrated with bitter and resinous hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, creamy feel and moderate carbonation.

Overall: A nice Black IPA with well integrated roasted malts and fresh hops.

2 week old bottle into a tulip glass

A: dark, opaque with a thick khaki head

S: roastiness, caramely malts layered over a piney hop base

T: smooth complex taste...very much stout-like with a bitter hop back end. Chocolate and espresso up front

M: smooth, on the thicker side with a dryness at the end

O: this beer got even better after it warmed up slightly. I'm an IPA and a stout guy and this is right up the middle. Interesting hybrid! Maine cannot make a bad beer!

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.
