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.

Aroma is rather nice with roastiness, vanilla, resin and some raspberries. Flavour has ash, licorice, resin and some roasted notes. Dry finish. Balanced and good!

Bomber thanks to Jimmy. Dark black with a small white head. Hoppy, chocolate nose. Taste has a slight medicinal flavor and the alcohol hits you head up. A little chocolate flavor with a nice thick malt profile. Great body.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep mahogany/onyx with a nose of roasted hops, smoked grapefruit, and light roasted nuts. Flavor is roasted strawberry with orange rind bread and toasted grapefruit. Average mouthfeel. I like the nuances in this one.

italarican (1481) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle at Paul’s. Dark brown pour. Aroma is strong of ethanol and dark chocolate. Hot astringent flavor with tootsie roll notes. Bitter rubbing alcohol finish with chalk and chocolate malt. A bit off with the rubbing alcohol. I don’t really like this.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JUL 13, 2012
5/10/12 notes: draft. Dark pour with pillowy white head and lacing. Aroma is sharply perfumy hoppy elements of spicy mint, flowers, pith and smoke. Flavor is toasted, charred malts walloped with spicy, leafy hops. Flavor intensity is robust, approaching Stone 15th, but not quite. Really fantastic stuff and a delight to drink, if not necessarily to quaff.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with tan head. Pine and herbal spice hop aromas. Citrus forward with earthy and grassy hop flavors.

Bomber on a Friday afternoon at the house. Never met a FW beer that I didn't like, and this is no exception. Hoppy like an IPA, but not overly hoppy, which does not work in a black IPA. Nice malty balance, which defines the best beers of this style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One bomber, pours dark and thick like a stout... damn close to a stout with a creamy thick head. The rye is a nice touch. Enjoyed this a lot.
