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.

First off just left Maine Brewery this beer was bottle 7 days ago. I did not get to try it on draft but purchased a bottle. It smells deliciously hoppy. Balanced with dark malt its the best black IPA I have had could be my favorite brew from this brewery

Not sure why it's listed as a black ale from the description I got Black IPA. Paid 6 dollars for a 16oz bottled marked April of this year.

A - Great looking head 2+ inches of mocha splendor atop a very dark colored thick ale. Slight sediment left in the glass which is OK for a beer 8+ months old.
S - Pine and citrus hops mended with a good roasty malt base. Slight sugary sweetness and chocolate in the nose.
T - Even old it still taste world class very balanced roasty profiled mended with a good splash of piney hops. Dry like a London porter with lingering bitterness. Good stuff.
M - Great mouthfeel very thick with a chewy medium body. Smooth.

Overall I took a chance on these bottles even though most are over 8 months old and they were not bad. I think I liked the King titus porter more but this is on great Black IPA. Worth picking up!

Served in a snifter from the 16.9 ounce bottle.

Pours viscous and dark like a great stout. Cocoa-colored head, chewy and pillow-like, forms over the dark body. My mind is thinking stout here. 5

Citrusy orange hops are immediately noticeable. Then dark roast malts that are faintly coffee-roast-like. Resinous and pungent overall on the nose. 4

Wow! Back to thinking this is a stout! Huge dark roast malt and coffee with a light caramel drizzle up front, so essentially a great stout. Then citrusy and floral hops dive into the mix. The finish is dry and cocoa-like. Light notes of onion become noticeable and the finish starts to taste chocolatey and smokey. 4

Feels more like a Cascadian Dark than a stout but there's a roasted smoky feel between the surly carbonation and hop spice and bitterness. There's great creaminess to boot. 4.25

A uniqur mash-up of an IPA, Cascadian Dark and a Stout. Enjoyable on its own.

Serving: 500 mL bottle poured into a Riedel Vinum Zinfandel glass (marked "111814").

Appearance: Deep dark brown with a good khaki head that lingers as a floating foam cap and leaves sticky lacing.

Smell: Toasty roasted grains, burnt caramel; citrus, pine and slight dank vegetal notes of fresh hops.

Taste: Roasted grains, coffee, caramel and slight earthy smokiness; well integrated with bitter and resinous hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, creamy feel and moderate carbonation.

Overall: A nice Black IPA with well integrated roasted malts and fresh hops.
