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.

Multifaceted aroma-piney hops up front, dips into rye, rounds out with a roasted grain, hint of chocolate, and closes with more hop nose and some caramel. Dark brown color, and a flavor unlike any ipa I've ever had in a fantastic way. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel, flavor explosion- definitely a subtle dosw of the chocolate and coffee flavors from the dark roast barley. Rye, hops towards the end, boozy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at brewdog. Black with a brown head. Fairly roasty aroma, coffee and pine. Taste has coffee, chocolate, pine, grapefruit and biscuit. Thick and creamy mouthfeel with a moderate bitterness. Nice

A dark clouded mystery with a spicy colored head. The aromas are nice and the initial taste is solid but the body is fantastic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Flying Saucer KC. Deep brown, almost black. Heavy herbal pine and mild roasted malt. Flavor is more of the woody, herbally, pine that fades to a velvety roasted malt and light sweet caramel. Nice dry roast and bitter pine finish. Medium, velvety body. Nice!

Butters (3789) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2012
HOLE.....LEE........SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII This is fucking fantastic. BEAUtiful very dark brown pour with mahogany highlights and ample tan head . Smells of floral and citrus grapefruit hops and almost a little slightly smokey backdrop. Flavor gets even better. More pineapple and grapefruit hop with smooth dark roasty center. Seductively silky on the tongue. Definitely hides the abv. Perfectly melded together in absolute harmony. Phenominal brew, and probably the best damn black ipa i’ve ever had.

Scipio (709) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Pours a very dark, deep brown with a tan head. Aroma is a bit different, as this is a rye IPA. The rye is very noticeable, but pine impressions are dominant. Grapefruit and caramel round this out. The taste is extreme in pine and hops. There is still a good amount of rye underneath. I get some coffee as well, with this one being very earthy and toasty altogether in this respect. Very dry. Thicker in body with a chewy mouthful. Aftertaste is long lasting, with a burnt flavor of pine and rye. This has a great hoppy kick as well. I must say that this a fantastic beer. Big flavor, strong yet not overpowering, and a cool name to boot. And in my part of the world, this is quite a bit cheaper than many mediocre selections that I have. Without a doubt, this one shouldn't be missed.

22oz bottle, thanks to my mom for providing me with my first couple FW brews. Bottled 8/21/12. Surprisingly light body for the ABV. Very soft, smooth carbonation. More dry texture. Really nice balance of roasty malts and delicious hops. Hops are earthy, spicy, and piney. Light bitterness, spice taste. Some sweetness. Good foamy half inch light brown head. Nice history of lace. Dark but not completely opaque color. Great roasty hoppy aftertaste, hint of coffee in there. Toasty, grainy rye complements this excellently. This is a potent brew with that rare combination of incredibly good, incredibly easy to drink. It’s got a bit of everything I love - hoppiness and roastiness - that holds my attention, and is a fine example of what I love about the Black IPA. Definitely one that I want to revisit.
