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.

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.

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.

The commercial description hints at what the aroma will be. Rye, malt and hops are abundant in the smell, with hints of smokiness and IPA citrus. Dark brown appearance, similar to a porter. The beer is unfiltered, yet there is nothing floating around - to me that’s a plus. Pours a thick tan long lasting head with heavy lacing. The flavor has a unique smoky beginning and a bitter strong finish. The aftertaste is like an IPA mixed with an Imperial Stout. Great palate and mouthfeel for an IPA - thick, velvety, overall very well made.

A balanced malt and spice nose. Taste features roasted malt, some mildly fruity hops, rye spiciness and some grassiness. Complex, refreshing but rich at the same time.

scoth (465) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Pours dark brown, black in the glass with a medium tan head, good retention, very fine lasting lacing. Aromas of pine resin, grass, toast, earth, rye. Medium-full, round body, dry, velvety. Mild malt sweetness -- just enough, then a medium-strong bitter lingering finish with some woody, cocoa notes. A stellar hoppy brew.

Picked up a growler of this flavorful brew at Growler Nation in Eugene OR. One of the best beers I have ever tasted. Will probably come back for more.
