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.

rosenbergh (8288) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 31, 2012
Draught at the Blind Tiger Ale House, New York, NY. Black colour with tiny tan head. Liquorice, hops, roasted malt, sweet liquorice, grain, urea and touch of bitterness. Flavour is perfect balance between hoppy IPA and roasted dry malty stout. Very tasty. Dry fruity hops, dry liquorice and malt. Excellent! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber bottled 7/19/12 into a Duvel tulip. Pours a dark brown, almost opaque black with a finger of tan head and nice lacing. Aroma is rye, smoked malt, pine, chocolate, citrus, and a light hint of smokey coffee. The pine really gets into your nose near the end. Flavor is bright citrus up front. Grapefruit, orange, and pineapple. The rye comes in as well as smoked malt and some coffee. There is pine flavors there as well. Mouthfeel is medium to somewhat lighter and alcohol is well hidden. This may be the best executed beer of this style I have had thus far. I put it on par or above Stone Sublimely Self Righteous. Great beer.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2014 Bottle from random CDL health food store. Crazy black pour that reminded me of Guinness but with a darker brown and bubblier head. Massive pine aroma with an honest-to-God whiff of sweat? Stanky. Surprisingly mild taste that finishes slightly bitter. Interesting.

Bomber from Binny’s Plainfield. Pour near black with tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, citrus, earthy hops. Flavors of rye, roasted malts, citrus, and earthy hops. Nice mouthfeel and bitterness. Nice malt backbone for a black IPA. Solid.

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.

Goodgrief (1844) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - AUG 28, 2012
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.
