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.

Pours mahogany tinged black into a Sam glass. Pancake head with excellent retention recedes leaving sheet lacing. Dark chocolate, espresso and rye aromas. Smooth with pumpernickel upfront turning to dark chocolate before the lasting roasted espresso finish.

S: Grapefruit, pine, spruce - caramel and slight sweetness. Overall dry and hoppy, sweetness accompanies warmth A: Black with cream colored foamy head that leaves a great lacing T: Very dry and bitter - the spruce and pine come though with a highly acidic citrus character. Surprisingly little sweetness, alcohol detected. P: Great mouthfeel after it warms - creamy with fizzy carbonation O: This is a beer for me - dry and bitter, other characteristics intensify with warmth. Overall not as good as Double Jack, but a great beer.

Hmmm....something about this doesn’t work great for me. Need to try it again. Had it after a Super IPA. Lots of very dark roast, rye spice, and bitter hops. Need to lead with this one on a fresh palate. As it was, didn’t love it.

1900th rating....Bottle/tap at the VCL. Pours out a dark brown color with a moderate off white head. Aroma is complex, some noticeable spicy, grainy rye notes, Light roast, chocolate, and some citrusy, light pine hops. Taste is very complex, roast, light chocolate, nice rye notes that blend with the solid punch of citrusy, light pine hop punch to make this one hell of a complex, but drinkable beer. Top notch to Firestone Walker!

Bottle. Black pour with foamy head. Aroma is deliciously citrusy, roast but not burnt malt, rye, definitely a bit spicy. Taste is bitter, good balance of roasted malts and hops, spicy and bitter but still retains some fruity character. Powerful but surprisingly mellow at the same time. Very good.

Multiple draughts from one of the best damn sixtels I ever bought for the good ole dual tap. Pours a great looking pictch black medium density body with a large light tan large frothy head that always leaves gobs of lace all over whatever glass I am enjoying this one in. Aroma is ruely sublime, notes of earht and citrus, burnt toast and oranges, rye bread. Medium creamy bodied with average to stronger carbonation, and a bitter finish. Flavor of earthy hops, burnt toast, rye seeds, dry hop cones, cirus rind, yellow grapefruit. This was worth every penny for the sixtel that I will kick far to quickly because this is one great beer.

It poured a dark brown/black color with a small off-white head. The aroma was of toasted malt, pine hops, some rye and citrus. The taste was of slightly roasted sweet malt, a little dark chocolate, pine hops, rye, and citrus (maybe grapefruit). Very good.

vyvvy (3606) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Pours very dark with a tan head. The aroma has smooth toast, tropical fruits, spice and cocoa. It is very bright for the style and amount of alcohol. It has a medium/full body with quite a bit of flowing gentle soft carbonation. The flavor starts with more bitter roasted malt, hops (earth/pine/grapefruit) and is fairly abrasive and sharp in a good way. The finish is resiny and juicy with notes of fresh tropical hoppiness and roasted malt stout. Very nice.

PhillyCraft (2845) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle last week, pours an opaque black with creamy thick off white head and lacing. Aromas are great tropical resins and piney citrus hops. Taste is tangy hops, rye. citrus fuel, and a light burnt toffee in the finish to balance out the dank hops. Well carbonated. Medium bodied. Delicious black ipa from FW.
