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.

Bottle poured into a goblet.
Pours a very dark black color. Head is Caramel/brown. Head lasts at the top of the beer, lingers on the side of the glass after each sip.
Smell is a mix of light amount of hops with a caramel maltyness to it.
Tastes very light with some caramel, and a very light amount of hops. The bitterness from the Hops lingers very shortly after each sip. Feels very light.
This is on the better scale for me of all the Black IPAs that I have had. Very well done.

Poured from a 16.9 oz bottle into a Becker pilsner glass. Moderate hand. Label instructs to drink within 90 days of 123113. Just squeaking in there!

A: Essentially black, opaque body with 3 fingers of rocky, tan head. Good retention with nice lacing. Impressive.

S: Roasted malt. Cocoa. Coffee. Piney hop with lighter citrus, grapefruit notes. Earth. Bread. Light spice. Faint bourbon/booze. Brown sugar. Very balanced.

T: Chocolatey, roasted semi-sweet malt initially with a gradual swell of moderate hop bitterness. Dry finish. Nutty and roasty bitter notes linger on the palate. Light alcohol presence.

M: Moderate carbonation with a smooth effervescence. Moderate body. Very easy.

O: Another rock-solid offering from Maine Beer Co. Drinks superbly. A very even balance between the hops and the malt really lets you decide: Is it more hoppy? Or is it more malty? Well, it's both. Simultaneously.

Prost!
