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.

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.
