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.

Brown color. Big fresh hops aromas, with grapefruit and apricots. Taller light tan head with some lace. Sweet pale and caramel malts in the start. Herbal to citric hops aromas. If I was blind I don’t believe that I would say this was a “black” IPA. After it warms a bit, there is a little tar, ash and roasted malt in the linger. 6/12

Monstrous, fairly course head, frothy lace, thick. Dark brown, just a glimmer of light breaks through. Sweet oak hop aroma. Lots of smoke and hops pile on with the first sip. Crisp and refreshing yet big. Very drinkable....like.

12 oz draft pours a black color with a nice white head. Aromas of pine, citrus, roasted malt. Full bodied, nicely balanced, a great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dacrza (784) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2016
DATE: March 27, 2016... OCCASION: Easter Sunday, enjoyed by all... APPEARANCE: dark-as-midnight body supports a thick, creamy brown, two-finger head that leaves a wall of thick lacing... AROMA: strong citric presence, with grapefruit and mango at the forefront... a damp, dank spruce melds with the malty sweetness of rye to balance the usual FW hop punch... PALATE: creamy, smooth, yet active at the teeth and cheeks, plucking interest in warm waves... medium-to full-bodied, with a resounding, controlled finish that lingers its orange peel and grapefruit...TASTE: a chocolaty, peaty, malty presence pervades the essential grapefruit, orange and pine... spiciness comes in the shape of pepper and toasted dough... a full, complex profile... OVERALL: The crown jewel of my last roommates’ get-together, the Jack is the perfect dessertif or nightcap, not heavy or alcoholic, but formidable and satisfying, like a doppelbock... sippable and savoring, this is another in the line of Firestone Walker brews that demands attention

tandembrauer (1015) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2016
On tap at BierCab, Barcelona. Pours black with dense beige head. Aroma of tropical fruits, resin, pine needles, some chocolate and roasted notes. Tastes slightly sweet, but well balanced. Finishes bitter.

ludhaber (101) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Nice hop aroma with little dark malt roast aroma. Dry finish from the rye makes this beer taste very clean and crisp. The 8% abv could be sneaky because this is pretty easy drinking.

Smithld1 (136) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2016
Half in the cbc Covent Garden. Not bad. Maybe I was on too long a session last night but this doesn’t taste of much other than alcohol. I was expecting something a bit more complex. But as I say I’m pretty hungover. Still, 8.3 percent, a perfectly sensible way to kick off a Sunday.

Review from memory - sampled on a few occasions. Pitch black pour, visibly thick and with a nice beige head. Smells like roasted malts, toffee, pine and some citrus hops. The taste follows the same notes, perfectly blended.

Definitely one of the best if not the best Black IPA I’ve tried. Pours dark mahogany brown. Aroma of roasted chocolate and dark fruits and malt. Taste is rich and dark and creamy with a nice citrus and hop balance. Excellent!
