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.

Deep brown pour with a thick light brown head. The nose is loaded with bright resinous hops over a rich dark malt base. Some definite cocoa and chocolate malts through the middle with a lingering roasted dryness. Pine and some chewy sweetness along with a tropical fruit flavour - particularly as the beer warms a bit. Some sticky hop resin is also accentuated by the sweeter malt. I wouldn’t say I get a ton of rye character in this but there is a suggestion of spice. Lots of coffee character as it warms further. Man - this is solid stuff.

Very dark brown with medium-large tan head. Aroma is mostly citrus-hop like but filtered through a dark grainy and nutty haze. Medium body, alcohol not noticable. Quite bitter up front. Then the rye-like malt shows up. Then some citrus and the faintest bit of sweetness. Then the hops reassert themselves and the finish is pretty bitter. Quite enjoyable.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a lacy, light tan head. Aroma of roasted and chocolatey/coffee malts, a little bit of rye spiciness, and a lot of citrusy hops. Everything blends well, thanks to the rye. Smooth texture. A really good beer.

Bottle picked up at SL... Dark black in color with a mocha head... Nice aroma of roasted malts with rye and lots of hops coming through. Taste is unique... Intially the rye is the dominant flavor followed by the roasted malts and a nice bitter after taste. Body is medium, reminds me of a porter.... Overall: Even though I am not a fan of rye or black IPAs this is enjoyable

JollyIsThRoger (3) - Indiana, USA - AUG 31, 2012 does not count
Aroma: surprisingly I get very little to no roast, all very pungent hops Appearance: Jet black, only a little light escapes on the edges, but seriously dark, head recedes fairly quickly Taste: wow....just wow. Alittle dark, alittle spice, and alot of earthy hops. This is really well done. Palate: starts off feeling thick and then it sort of melts on your tongue, its an odd feeling but it fits really well Overall: possibly my new favorite BIPA(cda, IDA, whatever they are calling it this week)

rosenbergh (8418) - 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.
