Maine Beer Company Weez

LOT_Ep_210

Maine Beer Company Weez  is a 7.2% ABV American Black Ale brewed with  Maris Otter, American 2-Row, Munich, Crystal-80, Caramel 80L malts and flaked wheat, black barley and midnight wheat specialty malts.  Hopped with  Cascade, Citra, Simcoe and  Warrior.

Appearance

Huge, tan head and VERY dark. Smelled the hops from far away with a delicate blend of resin blended with chocolate from the malts.

Taste

Hop-forward with chocolate presence with a mid-palate of roastiness and hop bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel

Pleasant and medium body for the mouthfeel.

Overall

This is an amazing fall beer, but could also be enjoyed for hop fans through the winter. I highly recommend that you pick this beer up if you see it, as it is encourages exploration of various palate extremes as well as unique ingredient combinations.
