COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wookey Jack is our first foray into the dark outer world of black IPAs. Rich dark malts and spicy rye careen into bold citrus laden hops creating a new dimension in IPA flavor. This brew has been left unfiltered and unfined to retain all of its texture and character. At 60 IBUs, Wookey Jack is gnarly on the outside yet complex and refined on the inside.

Dark beer. Minimal head. Enticing hop aroma. More licorice than hops in the flavour. A little bit mouth drying. Dark malt and flavour combination is awesome. ABV is surprising. Dark beer, spirits and hops. Yum.

Moderate to full, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, faint caramel, roasted malt and some tropical fruitiness, grapefruit - piney hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light - some caramel and some roasted malt with light tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit - piney hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and dryish - lightly sweetish, light caramel, roasted malt - faint burnt malt and light tropical fruitiness, piney - grapefruit hoppyness. Nice roasted and fruity aroma.

undsioux7 (835) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - APR 13, 2015
This probably one of my favorites from them. Nice mix of citrus hops and cocoa and coffee. There is still something missing from their beers that i cant put my finger on.

Beer with amazing aroma and perfect appearance. I was expecting a bigger mouth feel and bitter kick, which didn’t happen.

Solid black with an inch of pillowy foam. Aroma is toast, grapefruit, pine. Huge progression of flavours as you take a drink. Starts with a fragrant, zesty hop with citrus, pine. Bitterness begins. Opens up with more grain - toast, and a well...rye flavour. Then as it warms up and you finish a sip, it sweetens out a bit, leaving a long, long roasty finish. I usually glaze over the palate section of these ratings, but man does this have a nice mouthfeel.
