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.

Mason Jar fill from Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Jet black body, opaque with a tall and creamy tan head. The head settles quickly into a creamy coating that completely covers the top, beautiful.
Aroma: Prominent citrus of orange and tropical mango and pineapple presence with a mild roasted and cocoa presence with a hint of rye and pine. Near perfect for the style.
Taste: Very prominent cocoa on the intro, mostly sweet, with light roasted malts. The mid-taste keeps the malts, caramel throughout now, with a grapefruit, mango, and sweet orange hop presence. The finish hints at rye, but finishes bittersweet with a slightly sour presence, like rye bread. Boy, this is fucking good.
Palate: Full bodied, a bit creamy.
Overall: This is outstanding, the fresher I get this the better it is. This is world class, everyone must try.

I say bullshit to their comment as being the first foray into Black IPAs because this is too damn good to be a first. Off the nose, the aroma has hints of fruit and wood and the head is pretty solid. The taste is one of fruit, wood, malt and this desire to drink more of it. The lacing keeps sticking to the glass and the beer keeps going down. There is nothing I can say that has not been said. This is a completely solid beer that does what it needs to and that is to get the beer lover to drink more of it. I picked up this beer at the 2013 Great British Beer Fest and it is better than the other 800 beers that showed up. This beer scores a 100 for a good reason.

Bottle from brewdog Edinburgh. Wow this is one of the best ipa I ever drunk, black or not. Pitch black with cream lingering head. Funky madness on the nose. Bitter hops and all goodness on the nose. Big hitting hops and funk in the mouth. God damn I like this beer! So much better than the double jack!

eaglefan538 (3027) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Rating from both a bottle and several draft experiences from a single sixtel: Pour is deep dark brown to almost black and stout-like. Head is modest but well-sustaining, lacing all the way down even a smooth shaker glass. Aroma of chocolate, citrus, and resinous. Flavor was rich, sharp bitter resinous and citrus hops, chocolate malts underneath, even a bit of sweetness detectable if you clear the hops off the back of the pallette. Additionally, the flavor features brown sugars and molasses, rye bite and spicing notes, roasted bitterness in the finish too. Mouthfeel was slick for an american black ale, robust, smooth, nothing sticky at all here. An amazing concoction, great things playing off each other. Carbonation moderate to low. Maybe the best black IPA I’ve had? FW knows their stuffs.

thebeertourist (5179) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle from Gbbf 2013. Dark brown with a nice head. Grapefruity hop nose. Deeply bitter, nothing but citrussy hoppiness. Only the colour suggests a more-dimensional beer.

Pours a French Roast coffee color, nice head and lace, hopped black licorice on the nose, deep roasted, chocolatey malt backbone, finishing with a perfect balance of malt and hops. I can’t imagine a better black IPA.

En riktigt bra Black-IPA. Fina rostade toner i aroman. Sött kaffe. Väldigt balanserad i smaken. Len fin kropp.
