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.

Pours dark brown nearly black with nice beige head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, and hops. Taste similar with heavy roasted flavor and hops bitter in the finish. bottle has two months of age - would have loved to try fresh but still decent

Lizardking3 (91) - Springfield, Oregon, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Very very nice. Pours a gorgeous black with tan thick head. Smells roasted chocolate and piney hops. Taste matches that aroma initially but the settles into lovely roasty bitterness and finishes with the spicy rye for a long time. Masterfully done

TheArgoPirate (72) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Pours an opaque black with limited beige head that leaves a bit of lacing. Smell is toasty with a hop background. Solid roasted malt with rye flavor. Finishes with a lasting but pleasant bitter. Damn good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at clark street ale house in Chicago. Fluted glass. Black with light tan head and great lacing. Subtle hop aroma but it’s mild. Really nice balance of some crisp hop and creamy malt. Incredibly smooth. Cocoa and biscuit notes typical of a black ipa but more roasted. Alcohol is hidden. Delicious and delicate beer that brings a lot to the table.

maneliquor (3056) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours very dark brown with a stern khaki cap on top. Nose is full of citric zest, fresh cut grass and dirty chocolate with a slight hint of spice. Very dirty and earthy feel to this one which I like a fair bit - plenty of grass and pine with mild citric tang coming through. Definitely an earthy cocoa note in there which works well. Nothing too over the top, just a very, very solid CDA

jflopsu (524) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Pours black with a light white head. Has a strong hop and light stout aroma. A strong citrus hop taste with bitter and roasted malts. A strong a lingering bitter aftertaste from the hops.

Jorn69 (896) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2014
Tap @ Mikkeller & Friends, Copenhagen 15/7-14. Malty and really hoppy with light light roasted notes, grapefruity, medium body with an oily texture. The finish is dry, bitter and hoppy.

Black in the glass with a cola colored head. Wonderful spicy citrus hops aroma. More spicy citrus on the palate that morphs into a burnt pizza crust flavor. There is a bit of a minty citrus note in the aftertaste. Overall, nice and easy drinking but still complex... and not too pricy either!
