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.

My first dark IPA, as expected a good Mix between a porter and an IPA. Aroma is superlative, taste is bitterish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle from Binny’s Plainfield. Pours a very deep brown, mostly black colored body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, dark brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is solid with a blast of grapefruit and pineapple citruses up front with some nice pines and florals. Slight sweetness to the pineapples that comes out more as this warms. Solid chocolate malt backing with a bunch of roasts and a light caramel. A bit of a bready rye spice alongside the hops and roasts too. Flavor is roasty up front before the citrus florals and pines come out. Light rye spice and grassy note in the middle before a good amount of chocolate comes in. Ends with an increased roastiness and spicy pine as this finishes dry and bitter before leaving a lengthy aftertaste with a slight warming note. Medium, smooth body and a softer, moderate carbonation. Overall, a really nice Black IPA. Pretty roasty and dry, but plenty of citrusy hops and chocolate to keep things fairly even. Great beer.

Bottle. Pours black with fluffy tan head and lacing. Nose of tropical fruit, melon, roasted malts, and rye. Taste is chocolate, roasted malt, pineapple, papaya. Good bitterness and creamy mouthfeel.

Wow, this was awesome...best black IPA ever. Dark brown with nice fluffy head which leaves rings down the glass. Just rich and creamy chocolatey flavor, tons of spicy grainy rye and some citrus. Just a great burn at the end. Incredibly tasty and I don’t even typically like Black IPA’s.

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!

JulienHuxley (2990) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2012
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.
