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!

Draft. Black color with dense, light tan head and substantial lacing. Nose of caramelized sugar, citrus hood, and pepper. Spicy rye, grapefruit and pine hops with some caramel followed by coffee in the creamy finish. Excellent.

Black IPA’s tend to be monstrous brews with competing personalities. Huge hops versus rich malts. The end result tends to obviously favor one side or slam your palate with the full force of both. Wookey Jack is a rarity in how it does justice to each. Hops get their chance to impart fresh pine, citrus, and orange peel. Roasted malts get to showcase chocolate, dark chocolate, and caramel. Everyone wins, especially the lucky bastards who get to enjoy this artfully balanced brew.

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,
