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.

Bottled 11/8/12. Appearance: very dark brown pour with huge, frothy, lingering tan head. Aroma: huge citrus and piney hops and roasted malts,, spicy rye, slight chocolate and eucalyptus. Taste: nice floral hops on the front going into roasted malts, mild chocolate and coffee and that spicy rye in the end with that eucalyptus almost wintergreen aftertaste. Mouthfeel: slick thin to medium with medium carbonation. Overall: this is such an amazing beer. Like a wonderful mix between two of my favorite styles (west coast IPA & stout) with that extra dimension the rye brings. Favorite Black IPA by far to date.

Pours dark brown with a well retaining head of brownish beige. The aroma is spicy rye, piney hops, and roasted malt. The taste is full of pinecone, toasty grains, and a nice rye sharpness. The carbonation allows it all to dance lively on the palatte. Good combination of flavors.

Bottle: The aroma consists of heavy grapefruit and pine with hints of chocolate and rye. It pours a dark brown with some orange highlights. It has a two finger khaki head with good retention. Eventually it fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There some nice webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of chocolate. There are light fruity citrus notes in the middle. The finish has moderate-heavy grapefruit and pine. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, one of the few Black IPAs that comes across like a Black IPA and not just a hoppy Porter.

From the bottle poured a dark brown brew with a thick brown head.Aromas of grapefruit and malt with a little stink foot thrown in. Full bodied with a balance of malt and hops that leans a little towards the hop end, with a grape fruity hop finish.

Bottle. Brown with big tan foamy head and decent lacing. Smells like pine and what I think of as rye. Tastes roasty and piney- slightly rubbery. Starts slick ends bitter and dry.

Thanks xscottypx! Black pour with a frothy tan head. Big citrusy hop aroma up front with underlying rye spice, roasted malts and cocoa. Complex and layered flavors with creamy cocoa and coffee on the tip of the tongue fading into a snappy rye spice mid palate, more roasted malts and a great piney bitter end. Medium bodied and good carbonation. Fantastic beer.

Pours incredibly dark without a super rich head. Smells of smooth milk chocolate with the slightest hint of citrus. Sweet, dark malty flavors collide immediately with grapefruit rind and are quickly overpowered, letting the dry citrus cleanse the palate as the black pepper spice of the rye lingers, begging for another sip. Simply beautiful.

Pours nearly pitch black with a fluffy tan head that retains well. Aroma of pine, floral hops, cocoa nibs. Taste is rye, west coast piney hops, oak, espresso, light booze. A dry, bitter finish. Perfect in every way. Must try for any IPA or stout drinkers.

OK, yeah, this was awesome. Growler from Whole Foods. Pours black, long lasting creamy head, darn pretty. Aroma is almost piercing grapefruit. Flavor is very, very lightly of chocolate, not at all bittering in nature, with an intense shot of grapefruit hops. Hoppy, but not overpowering bitterness. Really, really well done. Loving me some Firestone Walker these days.
