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 a solid black with an ample and foamy tan head. Aroma is sharply bitter with some rye and malt. citrus hops still manage to punch through though. Taste is intensely bitter with great floral,citrus and grapefruit notes evident. The malt is assertive though, some good slightly roasted, bonfire notes at play. very enjoyable and lingering finish. Solid.

Black with a beige head. Light aroma. Some pine hops. Bitter roast and pine that blends the chocolate roasted flavors well with bitter resin. Tasty

Even though it is a black IPA I did not expect it to be this dark. Very intriging color of a very deep crimson black with a thin quickly fleeting head. Some rather strange aromas up front of stinky feet and cheese. After a minute of breathing it goes away to a nice hoppy aroma with some roasted grains, piney hops and some licorice. You would expect much more of a burnt flavor based on the color but it has just enough to play off the strong hops. Some grapefruit pith, smoked malts and bit of dry chalkyness from the rye and a strong lingering pine and citrus bitterness. I think that the rye actually intensifies the bitterness of the brew. Alcohol is hidden very well. This is a big, hoppy and very good brew.

22oz bottle from Antioch Fine Wine and Spirits. Pours a dark brown color with a big tan head. Aroma is a little roasty, hoppy, pine. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, hoppy, citrus, grapefruit, just a little roasty, the rye comes through very nicely, with a pleasant, bready finish. Pretty tasty. I think the rye helps this beer out.

Keg at BrewDog. Black pour, light tan cap. Liquorice, rye spice, deep chocolate malts. Juicy blackcurrant malts, liquorice, big juicy spicy hop finish, long roasty malt and pine bitter finish. Pretty good.

Pitch black color. Nose is full of hops, citrusy in character. Flavor is really hop forward and assertive. I can pick up some dark roasty flavors from the malt and rye. Hops are astringent. Beer finishes very dry. Alcohol is nicely hidden. Very nice beer.

dfhhead25 (251) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Aroma- definite rye, spices, caramel, hops, some roasted notes Appearance- pretty damn black with a pillowy off-white head and incredible lacing Taste- nice caramel sweetness upfront followed by some slight roasted notes and chocolate, spiciness in the middle followed by a hoppy finish Palate- good body and mouthfeel on this, feels maybe a touch light Overall- A well-crafted Black IPA from FW. Well-blended and highly drinkable just not quite as good as Stone’s 15th IMO.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with medium creamy beige head that lasts awhile leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a strong roasted malt, rye, and fruit. Thin mouthfeel with a strong spice grain and rye with chocolate smooth finish. Easy to drink, a very impressive black IPA from Firestone.

Tulip. Dark brown tan medium size head. Aroma is pine tree, lime. Taste of roasted malt, hops, and chocolate. Light in texture with dry finish.
