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 black with a tan head. Leafy green and citrus hop aromas. Smells like black double jack. Chocolate, coffee, and citrus hop flavors. Finishes with orange peel on the palate. Overall a fantastic black IPA! Way to go Firestone Walker!

Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2012
A black colored beer, with a beige head. The aroma of fruits, fresh orange, dark makt and hop. The taste is fruity, citrus and orange, bitter hop and some spices. The aftertaste is a little sweet, with bitter hop.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2012
22oz bottle, dated 8/9/12, from grape & gourmet. pours a dusky, dark, cocoa brown capped by a rich, dense khaki head that leaves thick sheets of lace on the glass. aroma is outstanding with notes of fresh pine forest, orange zest, and caramel malts backed by mild roast, baker’s chocolate, and toasted pumpernickel bread with subtle hints of coffee and earth as it warms. flavor is truly wonderful, definitely where this beer shines, with a beautiful balance of orange citrus, pine esters, and grassy hops up front backed by bitter chocolate, roasted malts, mocha latte, and burnt tofffee with hints of vanilla, pineapple, and pie crusts adding complexity through the middle. palate is medium bodied with smooth carbonation and an immense finish of bitter hops, semi-sweet chocolate, and roasted malts. overall, this is certainly one of the best black IPA’s out there.

Bottle pours black nice head. Smells tastes of pine roasted chocolate pine caramel a bit booze really solid for the style just enough thickness making it enjoyable texture. A solid beer. You could have two bombers and the dark roasted taste still would be enjoyable.

Huhzubendah (2522) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 10, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2012 Served in a FW pint glass because apparently that’s the en vogue thing to do these days. The beer is opaque and black, displaying a mountainous beige head that completely coats the glass with sticky lacing. The aroma offers roast, pine, and rye. Nicely done. The flavor brings piney hops with a slightly roasted malt bill. Alcohol presence is non-obtrusive. Beautiful chocolate notes linger in the finish. Without question one of the best examples of the style I have had. Recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a solid black color with a huge creamy tan head that persists forever before impaling itself to the sides of the glass. Smells of hops, no really, piney citrus and resin with a hint of green onion. There’s a faint roasty bready malt aroma that attempts to provide some balance but is really only there for show. The flavor hits with a hint of malt first. Caramel, bread, and chocolate are quickly pushed aside by a solid hit of citrus and resinous hop flavor. The chocolate comes back adds a bit of spice and lingers a bit in a sweet resinous finish. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet resinous mouthfeel. Very nice India dark ale ale or hoppy porter, very tasty with great aroma I really enjoyed this!

Dogbrick (8136) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2012
This beer pours brownish-black with a medium tan head that recedes slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, herbal hops and pine. Medium body with flavors of roasted malt, piney hops, citrus and rye. The finish is roasty with an herbal and floral hops aftertaste that leaves a lingering bitterness behind. Good beer overall.

keepersj12 (2688) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 9, 2012
This pours black with a creamy, lacing white head. The citrus and pine aroma hits first with a sweet malt scent coming as it warms. The flavor has a nice roast malt, slightly sweet start and then a big hop presence. Very complex, incredibly sooth and dry.
