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.

This beer makes me think I will love all types of Black Rye IPAs, either it’s true, or Firestone Walker just set the bar really high.

On tap at the abbey. Pours jet black but slightly thin. Aroma is mostly hops. Flavor is very fresh dry hops with a tiny roasted finish, very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beese (2561) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle from NWIPA in Portland, OR. Drunk of 4th of July. Poured a beautiful almost black colour with a thick tan head. Strong aromas of both citrus hops and burnt coffee. Full, silky mouth feel. Powerful bitter hop flavours citrus and grassy grabbing the taste buds, followed by burnt malts which lingered on the palate. Balanced perfectly with some dark chocolate and dried fruit sweetness. One of the best beers I have ever tried (thanks for the recommendation, Ryan!).

Bottle poured into glass. Dark pour with a nice long lasting lacing. Hoppy aroma mixed with hints of chocolate and roasted malts. Very easy to sip on and enjoy.

Pours black. Full chocolate, citrus, and rye notes. Not a strong aroma. Nice from the hoppy side. Very near to Self-righteous. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Taste is espresso, sweet malts, resinous hops, and balanced bitterness. Finishes dry and full. Had again on draught at Imperial Bottle Shop & Taproom for May the Fourth Be With You event 5/4/14. Really smooth and enjoyable CDA.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - JUL 26, 2013
This was bottled on 4/11/13 and is 106 days old. Firestone walker gives their beers 120 days.

Pours black with a thick head of beige foam that fell slowly. Left some lace. Nose is not loud. Piney hops, a smidgen of chocolate, coffee,toasted malt. Grapefruit. Earthy, spicy and a touch of caramel malt. Taste is dark roasted malt. Gentle grapefruit that was a little sourish with some hop bitter. It’s smooth and a little heavy not really crisp or biting from the rye. In fact the rye is mellow and not at all bold and has a mellow spice to it. Light resin, a little oily. Moderate carbonation and finishes dry and a bit muddled. Lingering bitter in the after taste with a touch of that grapefruit. I thought this was dull and could have used more pep and more spice.
