drank shortly after another one (both really fresh). pours very dark brown with a creamy tall dark beige head, excellent retention and strong lacing. intense chocolatey, milk chocolate and freshly roasted coffee, burnt malts, dark roastiness along with big citrusy and piney notes, never too piney though although medium roastiness seems to enhance that aspect. also maple syrup with your strong morning coffee breakfast - some sweetness indeed. average carbonation, medium body - oily and almost syrupy, grassy-citrusy, lightly piney and relatively short finish. not your average drinkable bipa but it certainly is complex and juicy fresh in its own way!

500 ml bottle from Brouwerij Lane. It looks like it has a Sept bottling date, but maybe since it was in the cooler, it is fine. Big hoppy nose. Dark roast. Chocolate. Very tasty.

Location: Bottle at Cornerstone (Ogunquit), 7/11/13, Rating # 3050!

Aroma: The nose is chocolate and coffee, with pine hops, and roast
Appearance: A dark brown color, with a heavy light brown head, and lots of lace
Flavor: This one has a big roasted and hoppy flavor
Palate: The body is medium-plus, with a creamy, smooth feel, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this one was one heck of a Black IPA. As is a surprise to no one, Maine nailed a hoppy style once more.

nearbeer (3428) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 14, 2014
500 ml. bottled on 02-04-14. Pours opaque ebony with a lasting disc of creamy bubbles. Big aroma of grapefruit zest followed by some resin and mocha. Tastes of fresh grapefruit with a slather of unsweetened dark chocolate, orange zest and dark roasted coffee bean. Long finish is mocha and dry oats. Near-medium body has too much carbonation and it fizzes up in the mouth a bit, but definitely keeps things from getting sticky. Above all, there’s a great balanced flavor and no overly-acidic finish from too much roast as some recent BIPAs have done to me.

500ml bottle in a tulip. Pours almost black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops plus a nice dark and caramel maltiness. Flavor the same with a good blend and a characteristic hoppiness of Maine Beer. Average to smooth texture. A good beer.

TheEpeeist (3175) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2013
16.9 oz bottle. Surprising dark pour with a thick tan head. Nose is mostly the same as Another; gin and tonic with a wedge. Hints of musk, pine and melon. Substantial medium body, maybe too much for the style. Resiny with a brisk buzz. Taste is broiled grapefruit and peel, coffee, anise, tobacco and pine. Interesting take but not my favorite style.

500ml Bottle, purchased at Wakefield Liquors - Wakefield, RI. As referenced in my Another One rating, I compared the two side by side. Let’s just say that this nicely crafted stout doesn’t do justice to hops. Oh sure, it tastes like a black IPA, like any Black IPA should, with that unique black malt twinge to a very grassy and pungent hop build, but it all builds together to taste like every other Black IPA, minus the mistakes. This is clean and fresh. Good, not great. Paired really well with clams steam southern Chinese-style.

bottle. consumed soon after maine beer "another one", which, as the bottle indicates, has the same hop combo but clean soft toasted cracker malts. IPA was quite hop-centered. tasty deep dark roast, dark chocolate present in weez was nice and drank nice as well. tight roast character. grapefruit and tropical fruit hop well integrated. grate. again, wish this was @ 5% abv or so on this hot humid summer night. but hey, life throws you a bunch of curveballs then you die, so who cares? continuous effort...
