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.

Really strong aroma. At first hops, resiny, then evolves to add some rye spicy, and roasty stuff. Also some sweetness? Pours black with a whitish head. Taste is bitter forward. Has some spice and burnt stuff later with a hint of malt. Really complex and nice but the bitterness does linger. Thick ish body.

Very nice. Lots of spice, toast, coffee and caramel on the nose. It is very dark with a nice coffee coloured head. The spice, coffee and caramel continue in the taste and are complimented by some citrus and herbal flavours. It is a thick and smooth, very drinkable.

Sdaniel90 (524) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUN 9, 2015
Bottle, 355ml. Deep, clear ruby with a large frothy tan head. Intense roasted and hoppy aroma, very floral and fruity as well. Medium to robust bodied with moderate carbonation. Considerably sweet with heavy bitterness. More fruity and hoppy than malty, but not unbalanced. Strong and complex bitterness finishes it off perfectly. Great beer!

Opaque black beer with a thin head. Dry malt, rye, grassy citrus aroma. Flavour is really interesting. Rye again, dry citrus, a slightly floral feel to it. Quite crisp despite having some earthier qualities. Complex and delicious. Only way it could be much improved for me would be if it was just a touch richer and maybe a bit sharper in the aftertaste.

Weird that I have never rated this beer since I’ve had it several times. Dark black pour with a thick frothy light tan head. Big pine nose with some lingering malt. Nice mouthfeel. Spicy pine and citrus hops with a nice balance of roast malt. Yummy.
