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.

Aroma of roasted malts. Much like a porter. A bit of fudge in the aroma. Flavor is very malty and chocolatey. Ive had this plenty of time but never had a chance to rate it. Most times Ive had this fresh on tap. For this occasion, this one is bottled and labeled as being bottled a year ago. The flavor has mellowed some and doesn’t have the characteristics of an IPA like I remember. The rye still gives off a nice spiciness. The hops have faded but it ages nicely. Becomes more complex and porter like. Coffee and spices linger.

Smells of roasted malts and rotted fruit with a bit floral at the end. Rich deep black color.Taste starts off with roasted malts followed by a nice bitter bite that carries on throughout the flavor profile with nice tropical fruits coming out after the half way mark with nice dry smooth finish. Fullish sticky body with perfect carbonation for this style. Black IPA is my favorite style of beer and this one sets the bar for flavor and complex changes that take place. Love this one. Nice brew!

Dark brown color. Rye, dark roasted malt, cotton candy hoppy nose. Big full body, tons of dark fruit, rye, dark chocolate moderately bitterness. So well balanced, slightly boozy. Tons of roasted malt, rye lingers in the finish. Awesome.

Sjohnh (658) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2016
One of the toughest styles to do, and this is top notch. The malt carries it, owning the spectrum from light caramel to licquorice. Complex aroma, with aforesaid malt, hops providing fruit and veg notes, and the chocolate flavours kept restrained. Similar taste. Colour is very dark, with a good head. Full body.

kajser27 (1125) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 29, 2016
Dark brown to black colored, medium tan creamy head, good lasting. Aroma is of some roasted malt and chocolate, strong- pine and citrus, hop pellets. Taste is medium sweet, bit caramel, chocolate, roasted malt and some rye, medium hoppiness but very fresh, just dry hopped pellets! Citrus and floral pine hops. Medium+ roasted and hoppy bitterness, dry finish, lasting aftertaste. Medium+ bodied, soft carbonation, resiny. (bottle, Bierhalle Deconinck, Vichte)

Poured into a shaker showing pitch black center with brown translucent rims and a finger of latte colored foam. The nose shows light pine and cannabis. The palate is light bodied and well carbonated. The rye spice immediately shows but the flavors of pine and citrus slowly evolve in a harmonious manner into the lightly roasted malts to bring about a light sharp IPA bitterness with a roasted malt bitterness. Surprisingly, a well done black IPA.

Bottle at home. Pours black with a medium off-white head. Aroma is caramel, slight grass, slight roastiness. Taste is caramel, piney, slight pineapple, hint of roasty malts, dry finish. Lovely.
