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.

22 oz bottle. The beer pours to a deep black color with a very thick tan head. The aroma has a citrus smell with a toasted malt & some smoky aromas. The taste has a medium full mouthful with a medium bitterness. Overall a very good black IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good beer. It had a roasted malt aroma with a slight floral hoppiness. Really dark with a tan head. Weighty mouthfeel that was smooth and full. It had a milder hops bitterness upfront followed by a strong malty backbone. It was well blended and the alcohol was hidden. There was also a hint of oak. Tasty brew.

This is a keeper. Comes together with awesome balance. Lots of roast malt and a little citrus hops. Caramel and dark chocolate - not sure where the rye fits in here but it must be involved in bringing the whole project together. Pours black with great mocha head and lacing. Tap at Boundary Road.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance has a black body with a three finger off-white foamy head, leaves some clingy slightly foamy lacing in rings. The smell has some slightly roasted coffee. There is some rye, slight citrus/pine coming through in a spicy sort of way. The taste is mainly bitter, some slight coffee - but mainly subdued, hopped - yes, but balanced and extremely flavorful. There is a dry yet bittersweet aftertaste and finish. On the palate, its about a medium, comes across fairly sessionable - maybe perhaps, and the ABV slightly felt. Overall, I’d say this is very good for a Black Ale and I would come back to this quicker than other Black ales though I’m not a super fan on the style, but would rather have Baranof’s over this.

On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a dark dark brown with a bit of brownish head. Mild and easygoing with a lingering burnt toffee taste. Mild hoppy bitterness.

An incredible black ipa from firestone. Has a bitter hoppy finish. Pours a dark brown like a stout. Smells hoppy. Had at Whirley ball ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is crazy good. Pours a dark black with tan head. Aromas are huge pine and dank resin. Flavors are spicy rye and bitter citrus hops. Notes of roasted malt too. Awesome stuff.

So sweet, yet so perfectly herbal from the rye malt. Pitch black IPA with greet body and mouthfeel.
