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.

Bomber, pours a beautiful midnight black with a light tan head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, rye. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, and piney hops finishing very bitter, yet smooth and somewhat dry. Pretty solid.

Night 2 of the Black DIPA tasting and this classic is holding strong. The rye tones are what break this apart and makes the unique bitter quality of this fine brew. Unlike Hoppy Feet 1.5, Wookey finishes much like a standard DIPA and is absent much of any chocolate or coffee taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone so go have a DIPA!

jbruner (2984) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Pours a translucent brownish black from the bottle with thin tan ring of lacy head that sticks nicely. Aroma of the the west coast triple C hops, centennial, columbus, and cascade, with a slightly roasted back. Taste is more malty than the nose, but all the flavors are there, with a great balance for a black IPA. Slightly bitter and spicy on the mouth with a clean finish. One of the better black IPAs I have had.

Boutip (5198) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2013
Bottle: Poured a deep black color ale with a large brown foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of spicy rye malt notes with some dry hoppy notes with light resinous notes. Taste is also dominated by spicy rye notes with some resinous dry hoppy notes with light dry bitter notes. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Really nice mix between some spicy rye malt with solid hops punch.

EtTuCthulhu (1384) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 27, 2013
The color of this beer is a very dark mahogany with a large off-white head on top of the liquid, which fades slowly and creates a nice lacing on the edges of the glass; also, the aroma hits your nose full of hops, specifically resin and floral ones, and malt, specifically toasted ones. The taste is very well balanced with a mild bitterness, slight umami, and a touch of sweetness, which is only complemented by the palate’s sticky texture, medium body, active carbonation, and long bitter finish. Overall, everything fits together very nicely in this beer without one thing taking control and ruining the brew.

Steverus0 (231) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Bold, black and beautiful. This Black rye has wonderful balance between these three elements. Wonderful citrus and pine hop notes blend gracefully with a bold enough rye presence to share the forum. Low effervescence is ok and keeps the head from dissipating too quickly. All in all - superb ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

While I believe I have rated several other beers from this brewery, this was the first Firestone Walker beer I ever tried. I typically dislike Black IPA. This beer managed to avoid seeming like you mixed together porter and IPA in equal parts. Pours the color of dark roast coffee with a tan head. Only complaint would be that I found it slightly under-carbonated. This beer really impressed me with how well the sweet malts and bitter hops blend together. Bottle - Trade from RABinVA

DiarmaidBHK (3785) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Draft at Fire works Leesburg. Pours black with a half inch of khaki foam. Has a little bit of lacing. Big piney, leafy notes on the nose. The rye nicely balances with the grapefruit on the tongue. Finishes with a nice amount of bitterness. Solid!

HogTownHarry (6278) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2013
My 22oz bottle shared with blankboy, jercraigs and mabel. Almost opaque ruby-black with a large lasting pillowy tan creamy head. Yep - smells the part - herbal resin bitterness, mid-level roast, not much alcohol - very nice. Taste - yep, follows, a little tomato, more alcohol, very sharp, not overly roasty - damn fine! Average body, astringent, nice carbonation, a real "rye" tang to the medium-long finish, balanced, not over the top or too roasty - a very very good beer that I hope to have again.
