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.

Bottle from 16 Tons, Eugene. About an inch of tan head, pours very dark, black/brown in color. Piney nose is very crisp, body is thinnish, rye hides until just at the end, hop profile is very balanced. Warming is invisible, really lovely beer overall.

Brouwerij (915) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 25, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2012 Poured into standard pint glass. Pours very dark borwn, nearly black. Two fingers of light tan head after a hard pour. Head has good retention and lacing, slowly dissipating into a thin cap. Smells of hops and roasted malt. The taste is hoppy up front, fading into flavors of rye and roasted malts. Not tasting much alcohol, despite the relatively high percentage. Moderate to heavy body. Medium carbonation and not a super clean finish. Leaves a mild resinous hop feeling/taste in the mouth (not necessarily a negative). Relatively palatable considering the hops and alcohol content. A nice take on a rye IPA. Would consider drinking again, although I feel Firestone-Walker has better offerings (e.g. double jack).

Brown black pour with tan head and lace. Resiny hops, light chocolaty roasted malt. Roasted malt, resiny hops, a hinto sweet on the start with a dry finish. Medium body with smooth carbonation. A hint of watery finish. Pretty good beer.

Black pour with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malt anf fruity hops. Taste is WOW! Best Black Rye PA. Roasted malt, Rye citrus hops- Tasty as hell. Can’t even notice the 8.3%. Best $6 bomber I ever bought. Great aftertaste and mouth feel.

ccex (905) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2012
22 oz. bottle pours black with a decent and lasting khaki head & rings of lacing. Smells of piney and citrus hops. Aroma includes lots of roasted malts, some chocolate and anise, and of course the hops. Taste is sweet with a dry finish. Medium body with mild carbonation. A very well-crafted black IPA, and as good as any I’ve tried so far.

Disappointing aroma. Muted. Nice flavor. Nicely balanced. Lots of piney hops and roasty chocolate notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Foxbush (1258) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2012 Draft beer at the Stone brewery. This was recommended by a custoner next to us at the Stone brewery bar in Escondido. This is quite a brewery that i will describe later. The black IPA poured a deep black with a creamy tan head. This was a wonderful beer experience and an outstanding IPA. The bitterness was balanced and ended well in the finish. The small tan head stayed with the ale and the carbonation was soft. Great beer in a wonderful brewpub. Enjoyed a bomber in December. The rye adds a zesty feeling in your mouth. This a special beer with a complex finish that leaves you coming back for more.

Bottle (bomber), courtesy of rlgk. Black with large beige head. Huge hoppy aroma with itrus, pine, dark berries, and spicy menthol supposedly from the rye. Some roasted chocolate aromas in the background. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Semi dry, medium bitterness.

ciaranc (795) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 21, 2012
Pour is deep black with a lasting, pillowy off-white head. Looks superb. Aroma is new to me and a joy - Hops. rye, straw, frass, orange citrus/zest. More citrus in the flavour and more of that hop/rye combo. Delicious.
