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.

I gave this extra points since it’s been a while I drunk Black IPA this good. Dark brown with big, creamy head. The aroma has a roasted chocolate background but it’s immensely zesty and hoppy. No doubt, it’s an IPA. The taste has a rich palate rich creamy mouthfeel. Lots of delicious black chocolate there. Still the dominanat , but not overwhelming note is zest and hops in the typical fuity IPA form. Well balanced bitterness. Great stuff.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2016 This well very nice. Pours with a slight head. The texture is pepper and tingles the senses while remaining lush and smooth. Taste wise the malts found in a dark beer give greater balance to this then other heavily hopped ipas. But what really makes this stand out is its strength, the alcohol gives this brew a lot of depth. I also love the more fruity finish that comes through after the early barrage of peppery hops. A very good brew,

Draft pour. Pours a dark mahogany brown, nearly black and topped by a smooth creamy head of beige colored foam that shows good retention and slowly settles to a thin film. The aroma shows notes of bright citrus hops with orange and grapefruit coming through along with some pine resin, dark grains, spicy rye notes, and a nice toasted caramel and dark cocoa malt base. The flavor follows and shows nice balance between the bright citrus orange and grapefruit hops, floral and pine resin, and the dark toasted grains, spicy rye, burnt bread, and a nice sweetness from the dark caramel and chocolate malt base. The rye really gives a nice spicy character throughout and adds a nice dryness as well. Medium bodied with ample carbonation and fairly smooth with a dry, spicy, and bitter finish. This is a flag ship beer for this style. Really well done.

From the first sip, I noticed that the complicated malt bill was beautifully integrated with the hoppy IPA flavor. There’s a strong roasted and chocolately flavor, but the rye malts also add a good amount of earthy and spicy character. That’s a pretty crazy malt profile to make an IPA out of, but FW manages to pull it off, creating a citrusy and aromatic black IPA. Complex and enjoyable.

Pours a dark brown with a foamy tan head. Smells of dark breads and spruce. Taste is bitter and sweet - hint of chocolate, floral and spruce hops. Very balanced.

Maris (1304) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 6, 2016
From a 650ml bottle on 6/2/2016. Pours the deepest brown with a biggish tan head. The nose features light fruity hops and a bit of chocolate. Taste wise, there a good dose of chocolate and roasted malt, some sweet citrus and stone fruit, and a firm rye based, slightly spicy bitterness. Full bodied with modest carbonation. A pretty good black IPA, but have had much better. I’m a bit surprised that this a 100/100 beer on here,

Paired this with a vanilla heath milkshake so... Maybe not the best. Some roastiness there which is bad! Per the BJCP guidelines. Goes down pretty smooth. But rather lacking in flavor. The citrus notes really just give it an acidic note. Not bad but not setting my mind equal to blown.

Biroholik (613) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 1, 2016
IBU: 80
Kolor : Czarny jak smoła. Zero prześwitów pod światło.
Piana: Kawowa piana, zwarta, trwała stworzona z dużej grupy średnich i małych pęcherzyków powietrza. Piana doskonale powleka ścianki TeKu, nie pozostawiając prawie żadnych pustych miejsc.
Zapach: Początkowo nie jest intensywny. Czuć owocowe nuty, trochę karmelu, trochę brązowego cukru i żywicę. Po ogrzaniu nuty prażonego słonecznika. Przez chwilę przewija się żytnia, chlebowa woń.
Smak: Zajebioza! Tutaj prażony słonecznik dominuje na dobre. Pojawia się bardzo dużo sosnowych, iglastych nut. W oddali dopiero ciemne owoce. Po kilku łykach na języku wyczuwalna jest czekolada i lekki kawowy kwasek. Najdziwniejsze detale jakie wyłapałem to : słone paluszki, orzechy laskowe oraz skórka cierpkiej mandarynki. Goryczka jest masywna, długa z pikantnym finiszem. Ta pikanteria pojawia się i znika na różnych etapach. Pod koniec degustacji można wydobyć nawet beczkowe nuty. Balans poszczególnych składników jest obłędny. Alkohol cudownie rozgrzewa w przełyku, w żołądku czuć również przyjemne ciepło. To co wyróżnia najbardziej to piwo od innych Black IPA to jego konsystencja, która jest niesamowicie oleista i trwała. Wookey Jack jest cholernie gęsty i treściwy.
Wysycenie: Niskie.
Podsumowanie:
4 najlepsze IPA na świecie!Niektórzy nie wierzą w oceny RateBeer. Można w to wątpić jeśli piwo ma 10-20 ocen. W tym przypadku jest ok.1100 użytkowników, którzy ocenili to piwo. Podpisuje się pod ich wyborem i mogę chyba je uznać najlepszym Black IPA jakie piłem. Wookey Jack ma wszelkie atuty by nim zostać : jest trochę słodki, trochę pikantny, trochę kwaskowaty na finiszu, trochę wytrawny, trochę chmielowy - po prostu bajka! Dodatkowo ta gęstość i oleistość - do tej pory coś niespotykanego w BIPA. Konsystencja godna niejednego Stouta, a nawet RIS-a. Doskonałe piwo na celebrowanie 500 lajków!

Toasty and hoppy with light rye. Black with tan head. Hops and roast are perfectly balanced.
