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.

Actually enjoyed this. Was recommended a friend. Bomber..tasted like a smoky IPA. Would buy again but wasn’t incredible.

Bottle. Dark brown, almost black, pour with aroma of nice rye and hops. Flavor is dark chocolate, more rye and finished rich and a decent amount of hops. One of the best black IPAs I have had.

Indra (2624) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 15, 2012
22oz., bottling date 9/21/12. Roasty, hoppy aroma, full of dark malts and earthy, piney, lightly citric hops, featuring some spiciness from the rye, black bread, and a faint, dark fruit and chocolate character in the background, overall quite nice, really. Quite black in color indeed, only showing some dark brown highlights when held directly to the light, otherwise as inky as night, with a very fine, uneven head, some abstract wisps of lacing here and there and is unfiltered as advertised, but I saw only a slight amount of sediment, which I therefore went ahead and poured. Flavor is a very nicely balanced combination of dark, very gently roasty, sweet, toffeeish malts, grainy, spicy, rye, some light cocoa and tobacco showing through before an influx of citric, piney, earthy, resinous hop flavors and bitterness. Finishes with a blend of cocoa, prune, faint licorice and even a touch of coffee. Active but very fine effervescence on the palate, lightly oily and ultimately dry, body is full. Super tasty. This is a great example of the style.

Aroma: Intense aroma, almost explodes in your face when you move in for a sniff. The pine and rye scent is extremely potent, a little tobacco, sweetness. I think the best aroma I’ve so far smelled. Appearance: Perfect actually, a dark black appearance that is completely opaque, the head is a white head with excellent lacing that lasts beyond when you start drinking. Taste: Amazing, the taste is different from the smell, but still maintains some of the pineness, but a coffee and earthy flavor immediately pops up. Strong for an IPA, nice. A tiny bit of alcohol at the end. Palate: Weakness and wateriness comes up around the end, but a nice palate nontheless. Overall: Definitely the best Black IPA I’ve tried, although its a small arena. Excellent beer though, Firestone signature is 3 for 3 so far.

On draft: poured deep burgundy brown, mellow off white head that faded. Nose of dark fruits, pine, resin, rye and cereal malts, subtle citrus notes. Lots of the same on the palate with some chocolate malt and rye spicy notes adding complexity to this heavier bodied beer. This really grew on me as it warmed as lots of herbal hop bitterness was well balanced by the hefty malt profile. Well done for a first foray into black IPAs ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours an opaque brownish black with tan head that is two finger, diminishes over about 30 seconds with mild to medium lacing. Grapefruit, pineapple and piney hops drive the aroma with some underlying roasted rye malt flavors that balances out the hoppiness. Medium to strong bitterness mxed with a hint of sweetness. Medium body with moderate carbonation and sticky mouthfeel. Long mildly bitter finish. I love RyePAs!

Bottled. A dark brown beer with a lazing tan head. The aroma has notes of hops, caramel, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, hops, and cittus fruits, leading to a dry and bitter finish.

JanLaursen (3159) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2012 Bottle, 66 cl. Clear reddish brown with a frothy beige head, good retention and lace. Very nice hoppy aroma of lemon, grapefruit and pine with a whiff of licorice. Very delicious taste, perfectly balanced between almost vanilla-like dark maltyness and fruity hops, leading to a dry bitter finish. Full bodied, very very good black IPA.
