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.

From 07/23/14 notes. On tap at Rattle n Hum in NYC. 14 oz pour in a tulip.

a - Pours a dark mahogany brown color with one inch of dark brown head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks very nice.

s - Smells of roasted malts, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, pint hops, and very light citrus. very good, though not as balanced or hoppy as I was expecting. Roasted notes dominate the nose.

t - Tastes of roasted malts, chocolate, pine hops, citrus hops, floral notes, grapefruit, cocoa, and mocha notes. More balanced than the nose and more hops, very good and better.

m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation. No bitterness, pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a good Black IPA...not one of the best I've had, and not MBC's best, but quite good. Taste is good and balanced, worth checking out.

Poured from the 3 week old bottle into the MBC ale hybrid weizen/pilsner blass.

A: Dark creamy ale, seems nitro charged. Opaque with light brown head that starts pretty big and collapses into a 4mm disk. Can be excited into froth at any time. minimal lacing and kinda brown at the edges. Tasty lookin'!

S: Neo hops, like Mosaic or Azzaca, mild. Malt shines through with strong toffee note.

T: Well blended neo-hop and dark chocolate malted milk ball.

M: Very delicate on the tongue, with a slightly acidic, almost lactic side of tongue with malty swallow, slightly thin on uptake. After swallow, it kinda wells up into a creamy, bitter note then kinda hangs around with a very slight hint of chalkiness.

O: Great effort again from MBC. Outright solid.
