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.

Pours pitch black color with big chunks of yeast floating in it that leads up to a huge foamy 2 1/2 finger light brown head that faded very slowly and left decent lacing. The head was full of tight shiny bubbles, and the top looked like a milkshake as this dissipation pace was as if time stood still.

Smells of grapefruit, roasted malt, orange peel, pineapple, citrus hops, caramel, cocoa powder, smoked grains and charcoal. Much hoppier than I expected based on the looks, but like most Stone brews I’ve now come to expect Main Beer Company to come through with an incredible hop aroma and this one delivered as usual. Nice balance and dynamic blending of the strong citrus hops and the rich, roasted malty backbone which brings out a hint of sweetness.

Tastes very similar to how it smells, with grapefruit, roasted malt, orange peel, coffee grinds, lemon zest, citrus hops, toffee, caramel, cocoa powder, burnt grains, dark chocolate (like a Hershey’s dark chocolate bar), tea leaf, piney hops, dry grass, charcoal and mild spices. The bitterness is a cross between a dark coffee and fresh citrus hops, but it is not overpowering since it ties together the roasted malt notes. Flavor is much more roasted grain dominance than the hops in the nose, but there still manages to be a sweetness which is a combo of dark chocolate, dark fruit, citrus and cookie dough, which then trails off slightly bitter.

Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, with a medium chewy body, slightly below average carbonation and a sweet mocha coffee aftertaste that has a hop sweetness as well as the bitterness mentioned throughout the review.

Overall very tasty, it was a nice complex beer that bounced between hoppy sweetness and roasted grainy smoked flavors, settling on a mild bitterness together. Quite flavorful and enjoyable, I'd definitely have this again and it’s another winner from Maine Beer Co.
