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.

A good drinking bomber, spot on black IPA solid offering. Very good, another solid FW offering. Black bodied, assertive carbonation. Above average mouthfeel. Solid hops, solid roast. Rye spice adds some edge. Roast aroma.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 10, 2012
22oz bottle: pours a mostly opaque black with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a big fresh resinous hoppy nose with some light toast and dark malty sweetness. Starts with good fullness and light malty sweetness with some herbal rye character and lots of fresh citrusy hop flavor before a drier bittersweet finish. A unique take on the style with great hop character throughout.

A - Pours a dark brown-black color with a finger of frothy khaki colored head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of roasted chocolate malts, pine, grapefruit, and citrus hops, rye, coffee, and bit of black licorice. T - Starts off with grapefruit and citrus hops with some bitterness and some roasted chocolate malts and a bit of black licorice. Through the middle, pint hops and more bitterness come through with some rye spiciness and coffee. The finish is a mix of roasted chocolate and rye, with pine and grapefruit hops, bitterness, and some coffee. M - Medium-plus bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, roasty, and bitter finish. D - Very drinkable. I like the rye addition to the Black IPA and the balance is really spot on.

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Bottle from World Beers. Dark brown pour with a medium tan head leaving moderate lace and with excellent retention. Nose is full of resinous hops and holds a promise of a chocolate malt base. Medium body and moderate, fine carbonation. Mouth feel is just on the creamy side of things and quite lovely. Resin, lite citrus zest, chocolate and toffee. Finish is medium, chocolatey and resinous. An excellent, enjoyable Black IPA, bettered only by a few.

BeerandBlues2 (9454) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours near opaque with a large, creamy and frothy tan head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is earthy and dank hops, toast, roast and coffee malt with raisins, figs, and plum fruity esters. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, supporting dark malt, raisin and plum notes and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

HighWine (950) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Tap flight at Whole Foods in Schaumburg. Dark brown, almost black pour with a thin head. Looks like warm cola. Very hoppy nose with fragrances of cut grass, grapefruit, and quomquat. Taste is like a hoppy cigar. Roast flavor turns to ash almost immediately and then grassy hops follow. Moderately slippery in the mouth. Pretty clean finish.

draft at Coles, Great Black IPA. Dark black pour, herbal hops, light roast. Great flavor, herbal medicinal bitterness, gentle roast. Hops are dominate here. Very tasty

Darwenus (536) - Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2013 This brew pours chocolate brown with a head that grows quickly and then recedes slowly and leaves lots of continuous lacing. The aroma is big. There’s huge rye, citrus and big hops in the smell. The taste is really good. This IPA might be brewed with stout lovers in mind, and not just because of the dark color. The taste is complex, with a lot of malt up front and then huge hops at the swallow (more than 60 IBUs imply), followed by this incredibly woody, sweet, smooth finish. I loved it.

MadRobin (1861) - Silver Spring, USA - AUG 6, 2012
On tap at Friscoe Grille & Taproom in Columbia, MD. Opaque, deep dark brown with tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, pine, pineapple, roast malt and a touch of chocolate. Taste of grapefruit, roasted malt, pineapple and chocolate. Medium body and medium/high carbonation with a very smooth mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
