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.

Tasted from bottle. Pours dark brown almost black with tan head. Aroma is chocolate, faint coffee, with a little caramel. Taste has the spicey rye but not overly rye tasting. Dark chocolate, coffee, caramel, bread. Medium bodied. Moderate to heavy bitterness with mild to moderate sweetness. Excellent black ipa with a nice rye kick. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

probstblueribbon (3157) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2014
Bomber from BOTW, shared with my bro. Deep brown with ruby hues and a moderate light tan head. Strong, resinous hops, rich roasted malts, grapefruit and other fruits, molasses, lightly peppery. Medium-full body, gentle carbonation. Flavour is litre the nose with rich dark malts and big fruity, resinous, peppery hops; off-dry with good bitterness and a long, balanced, very rich finish.

Bomber. Earthy rye aroma with notes of pine, grapefruit citrus and some roast. Pours black with a large light brown head and not much lacing. Good earthy rye flavor with light roastiness. Finishes quite smooth especially for an iPA with light bitter hops as well as pine and grapefruit. Excellent black IPA!

furthur (306) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle, black body. Decent head, fades to a skiff, but leaves good lacing. Aroma is spruce and tropical fruit, just a hint of roastyness and wet wool. Taste is roasted barley, spruce, grapefruit, spicy rye, citrus rind bitter. Body is light, but smooth, carbonation bright and fine. The long, bitter finish lasts a bit too long to be pleasant.

Spab (2631) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2014
650 ml bottle from Niagara Falls Wegmans. Pours a very dark brown with moderate-sized beige head that leaves a little lace. Aroma is a lovely blend of roasty dark malts, spicy rye and citrusy, earthy hops. Flavour is also a nice mix of roasty chocolate and coffee, spicy rye and a, perhaps a little subtle, citric/earthy hoppiness. Quite impressive.
