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.

Doesn’t taste like a typical black ipa. Which makes it outstanding for the style. No gawkey cocoa hits or hops that feel out of place. Just a good hoppy beer.

This delightful beer is dark, but not too dark, for a black IPA. Okay... never mind. It’s pretty darned black. It has a really interesting pinkish-white head. The aroma is just like an IPA, deceiving, with caramel malts dominating. As dark as this is, there is practically no roasted malt presence, no chocolate, no harshness in the nose. They got the black without subjecting you to roast! This is now, officially, my favorite black IPA. In the mouth, a woody, unique (but tame) roasted malt character controls your destiny. Alcohol and sweetness merge maturely. I’m not surprised that this is such a nice beer... a perfect job from Firestone Walker, as always

Bomber. Pours a dark, almost opaque brown. Nose is outstanding -- dank like a catty basement, with a Christmas tree thrown in for effect. Light brown head with good retention. Palate is dry, slightly spicy, lots of piney hops and some passion fruit. Finishes pretty clean with a lingering easy bitterness. Goes down nice, albeit slightly warm from the ABV. Firestone-Walker hasn’t let me down yet,

very spicy aroma, moderately hoppy aroma, overpowered by the spice a bit, lightly roasty... deep deep brown red color with a big tan head, excellent lacing... lively, dark roasty citrusy spicy, creamy body medium full... dryish finish...

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2013 Tap. Pours deep, dark brown with average, fizzy off-white head; short retention and good lacing. Aroma is roast and cereal malts, rye, figs, earthy hops, some dark chocolate, and faint coffee. Flavor is balanced rye, dark malts, and earthy hops (medium body); smooths out towards the end with a nice, subtle bitter coffee finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

Bottle. Opaque black liquid with huge light tan head. What is it with BIPAs and huge heads?! Aroma of citrus, white pepper, light pine, biscuit, some chocolate, tangerine, orange marmalade, fresh flowery hops and grapefruit. Really grows on you, starts out a bit one dimensional but gets more and more complex. Taste is dry and medium bitter with notes of white pepper, biscuit, citrus and flowers. The rye really shines through. Medium bodied with nice, soft carbonation and smooth mouthfeel from the rye. Very nicely balanced beer, the rye really adds something to it.

No head, black pour, smells of hoppy alcohol, tastes of a bitter rye beer. Not a fan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy Deez nuts

At Maproom. Very strange. I enjoyed it but intense hops and sharp spiciness of the rye made it a almost challenging drink to the taste buds. Complex so you had to think about all the flavors. Serving: Tap
