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.

wedgie9 (1792) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Tasted on 8/12/12 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle purchased at Sun Devil. Pours very deep, nearly black, oily dark brown with a thick tan head that slowly recedes to average lace, leaving some thick residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is milk chocolate malt, coffee, pine resin hops, along with the signature spicy aroma of rye. The flavor is exactly the same, plenty of milk chocolate, coffee, spicy rye, and resin hops. The body is full with just under average carbonation and a long spicy rye, chocolate, coffee, and nicely bitter resin hops finish. This isn’t the hoppiest or maltiest Black IPA I have ever had, but it is the most balanced.

blklab2007 (1878) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Bottle 6/22/12 date on the glass. Pour is a real dark mahogany brown in color with a covering of off white head that retained a nice ring. Aroma really comes across as an ipa, dry citrus rind, flowery resins, pine, underlying malt, and some light roast. Mouth feel is light and there is plenty of carbonation. Flavor does combine the hops and malt quite well. Medium bitterness, pine, citrus, I get the rye as well and it is done to a complementing level where it fits in to the bitterness nicely. I guess it never hurts to get a beer like this bottled a month ago but this is pretty kicking.

A good drinking bomber, spot on black IPA solid offering. Very good, another solid FW offering. Black bodied, assertive carbonation. Above average mouthfeel. Solid hops, solid roast. Rye spice adds some edge. Roast aroma.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 10, 2012
22oz bottle: pours a mostly opaque black with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a big fresh resinous hoppy nose with some light toast and dark malty sweetness. Starts with good fullness and light malty sweetness with some herbal rye character and lots of fresh citrusy hop flavor before a drier bittersweet finish. A unique take on the style with great hop character throughout.

ngeunit1 (1555) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 9, 2012
A - Pours a dark brown-black color with a finger of frothy khaki colored head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of roasted chocolate malts, pine, grapefruit, and citrus hops, rye, coffee, and bit of black licorice. T - Starts off with grapefruit and citrus hops with some bitterness and some roasted chocolate malts and a bit of black licorice. Through the middle, pint hops and more bitterness come through with some rye spiciness and coffee. The finish is a mix of roasted chocolate and rye, with pine and grapefruit hops, bitterness, and some coffee. M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, roasty, and bitter finish. D - Very drinkable. I like the rye addition to the Black IPA and the balance is really spot on.

TheRealMGD (549) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Bottle from World Beers. Dark brown pour with a medium tan head leaving moderate lace and with excellent retention. Nose is full of resinous hops and holds a promise of a chocolate malt base. Medium body and moderate, fine carbonation. Mouth feel is just on the creamy side of things and quite lovely. Resin, lite citrus zest, chocolate and toffee. Finish is medium, chocolatey and resinous. An excellent, enjoyable Black IPA, bettered only by a few.

BeerandBlues2 (9068) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours near opaque with a large, creamy and frothy tan head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is earthy and dank hops, toast, roast and coffee malt with raisins, figs, and plum fruity esters. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, supporting dark malt, raisin and plum notes and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

HighWine (940) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Tap flight at Whole Foods in Schaumburg. Dark brown, almost black pour with a thin head. Looks like warm cola. Very hoppy nose with fragrances of cut grass, grapefruit, and quomquat. Taste is like a hoppy cigar. Roast flavor turns to ash almost immediately and then grassy hops follow. Moderately slippery in the mouth. Pretty clean finish.
