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.

Poured from bottle into tulip. Color is a deep dark brown, with a thick tan head. Consistent lacing throughout. Plenty of carbonation. Smell is shocking...hops, citrus, with almost no roasted malt notes. Taste brings in the roasted flavors, lightly, in balance with the hops. Just a really balanced beer and amazing integration. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

Appears pitch black big khaki tan head forms fine even spread lacing on the sides of my chalice, great looking black IPA.

Smells of anise, herbal hops, and mild citrus peel notes with black dark roasted malt layers.

Flavor slightly tart and bitter with citrus notes, dark milky dark chocolate notes, herbal bittering hops cleans out the rest of the semi sweet malt character.

Mouthfeel is medium ale with a dark chocolate citric peel bitterness dry character left with each sip. Nothing like any of the other Maine beer company's dark beer characteristics.

Overall, I'm excited to see more dark hoppy offerings from them.

From the 650 ml. bottle marked C4C114-7. Sampled on June 6, 2014.

this pours black as night and builds up to a handsome looking, long-lasting, soft, tan head. Lacing all around.

The earthy hops are what I get right off the bat in the aroma but some dark malts and a touch of black licorice kick in after that.

The body is medium to full.

The taste has a potent hoppy bitterness which supersedes the initial dark malt and black licorice character. You go away from this thinking "I loved those hops."
