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.

superspak (3500) - Michigan, USA - OCT 30, 2012
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled 7/6/2012. Pours pitch black color with a nice 2 finger dense tan head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of huge grapefruit, pine, orange rind, toast, roasted malt, spicy rye, light char, chocolate, floral, and piney spiciness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity. Taste of big grapefruit, pine, roasted malt, dark chocolate, spicy rye, toast, orange rind, light char, floral, herbal, and piney spiciness. Lingering notes of citrus rind, pine, roasted malt, toast, dark chocolate, rye, light char, and piney spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity and balance of flavors; with a very nice roasted/hop flavor balance; nice bitterness/sweetness balance and no cloying flavors on the finish at all. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, sticky, and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic black IPA. Great hop flavor profile with nice balance of roasted flavors; very smooth to sip on. Highly enjoyable stuff as expected.

Pours a deep black color with a four finger mocha foam that stick and laces nicely. Aromas are dusty sawdust, pine, citrus and earthy chocolate spice. On the palate its much of the same. Nice fresh hop fruit mingles with dark woodsy pine and rustic chocolate. Great mouthfeel good balance with creamy full bodied and quenching bitter bubbles... nice.

Dark brown with tiny white head. Piney hops, rye nose. Sweet with pine and onion flavor. I just don’t get the black IPA thing.

edwardbass (652) - Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2012
For me this was a "sipper" - a bit overwhelming in malt and rye flavor. I enjoyed it, but probably wouldn’t have it again. I enjoy "lighter" rye beers. I did enjoy the hops in it, though, but, to me, they were more piney than citrusy. Overall, a good beer if you’re a rye and IPA fan who doesn’t mind a slightly heavier malt aspect.

Camden Brewdog. Opaque dark brown beer, little pale tan head. Smooth palate, light and a little soft. Mild fine carbonation. Smooth malt - a little creamy. A hint of darkness to the malt. Mild rye spice. Nice piney hops with a whisper of marmalade citrus and red berry fruits. Mild minerals. Finishes soft with a trace of coffee and a little hop bitterness. All flavours in good balance - that is to say typical Firestone Walker!
