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.

Good glossy beide head tops a glossy black body. Loads of bitter pine hop and roast on the nose. Tight light carbonation supports. Super length and coating mouth bitterness. Very good.

jamestulloch (2116) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 2, 2015
Bottle from Drinkmonger. Dark brown body with a thick beige head. Excellent lacing. Aroma of fig, plum, caramelised sugar, charred wood and Twiglets. Flavour of raisin, treacle and caramel. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Light fizz. Rich and hoppy. Nice.

Garrold (2598) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2015
Bottle. Beer Central, Sheffield. Clear, very dark, reddy brown. Thin, lasting, tan head. Brûléed grapefruit. Raspberry. Chocolate malts. Taste is dark chocolate sweet, and dark chocolate bitter. Smooth, easy palate. Hop bite kicks in. Drinkable to the tune of silly. Long, rich, bitter finish. Very nice.

ianwelby (744) - SCOTLAND - MAY 31, 2015
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.

Bacterial (2194) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2015
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.

commonmac (673) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Tap at the brewery with commomshawn, rosskyle, and wildcard. Pint glass. Tulip glass. Just a little bit of rye on the nose plus a hop floral quality. Pitch black. Light tan head. Taste has a mild bitterness and a strong rye presence that plays really well. Roasted notes almost give a dark chocolate feel and a bitterness at the end rounds everything out. One of my favorite ryes.

bartzluke (329) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 22, 2015
5 oz chilled pour from tap into a cylindrical tasting glass at Growler Guys in Portland, Oregon. Dark dark brown to black and opaque with a strong off-white head. Nose is malts and foresty (wood and faint pine). Medium body leaning towards light. Taste is a strong burnt malty backbone with a harsh bitterness up front. A lot of the burnt and bitter flavors I don’t like in beer without the dimensions I do.

JDBaker11058 (1538) - Maryland, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Appearance: stoutlike black pour with a finger of creamy tan head, average lacing. Aroma: citrus, pine, burnt brown bread, dark chocolate. Taste: dark chocolate and plum, then a wave of grapefruit, apricot, mango and pine, with an undercurrent of toasted pumpernickel. Finish: roasty and bitter, and long. Notes: Not my favorite style of beer, but certainly the most well-executed example I’ve tried. Draft at Kloby’s Smokehouse in Maple Lawn, Maryland.

Pours a deep black with a large tan head. Citrus pine hop aroma. First taste of slightly sweet raisin with toasted malts melting into a lingering hop bitterness. Balance is spot on
