Maine Beer Company Weez

As you can read below, this is the “fraternal twin” of Another One. If you want to see what I thought of that beer, take a look here.


ABV: 7.2%

Style: American Black Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “We took a bold blend of hops and brewed it two ways. Weez is the hoppy result of blending with dark malts, while Another One is the smart blond fraternal twin. Hoppy and ‘roasty’ from start to finish, this version is named Weez after our brewer Mark’s cat. A tasty black ale, it’s dedicated to stray cats everywhere — especially those cared for by a group we support, HART, the Homeless Animal Rescue Team of Maine.”

Random: I love the simplicity of Maine Beer Company’s labels.

This beer poured with a one finger, tan head that dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. It also left a huge crown on top of the dark brown, almost black body. Because of the color, there was no visible carbonation. The nose was really piney, almost like Pine Sol. Then, it went into deep roasted malt notes and cold brew coffee. The taste was the opposite. It started with the roasted malts and dark chocolate. Coffee came through too and was backed up by grassy hops and pine sap. The body was thick and had a touch of booze. It had mild carbonation that I wish was a little more prevalent. The finish lasted on my tongue forever with smoke and roasted malts. This was $8.99 for a 16 ounce bottle, which meant I paid $.56 per ounce. I really enjoyed this beer, just like I enjoy every beer from Maine Beer Company. I wish it had a touch more hops, but that’s really my only complaint.
