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.

Draft. Poured clear black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted dark malt and hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a very good beer.

Very rich beer. Filled me up. A nice "not-too-foamy, not-too-flat" top. Bursting with that dark rye flavor. I’d highly recommend it if you are a fan of dark ipas

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Draft at Capone’s during Philly Beer Week 2012. Pours turbid brownish black with off-khaki head and great lacing. Nose is dark rye malt, citric resiny hops, tangerine, pineapple. Tastes of huge pineapple and tangerine, with dark rye malty and cacao flavor to match the hops. This one is a very good black IPA, perhaps the best I’ve had yet.

Landmonger (156) - USA - JUN 5, 2012
Pours a very deep dark black, thick tan head which dissipates to a minimal amount with nice lacing, it looks like a stout with the aroma of a IPA, carbonation is medium but smooth, taste is malt, caramel, with some sweetness, aftertaste is bitter but minimal presence of alcohol noted on the way down. Very nice

(Draught) Pours an opaque black body with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, pine, chocolate, herbs, and grass. Flavor of roasted malt, anise, black licorice, chocolate, grass, and herbs with a dry, bitter finish.

williamherbert (1290) - Syracuse, New York, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Aroma is a mix of rye and funky armpit pungent hops. Smells like a garage that hasn’t been aired out all summer. (In a good way.) Looks deep dark brown, with red at the edges. Good head retention; cardboard brown. Spectacular lace. Cereal grain flavors; oaty and a little musty; earthy as hell. The hops come in as woody and spicy. The finish is pure black mocha coffee with a touch of dark chocolate. The two disparate flavors don’t butt heads. Starts like a rye IPA and finishes like a nice imperial stout. Feels ashy and sandpapery. Starts piney and funky, finishes like a straight shot of espresso. Damn!

22 oz bottle. Dark brown with a dirty white head. Nose is soft grapefruit, toffee, light roast and smoke. Medium body, almost sticky, with a tingle. Taste is molasses, rye and broiled grapefruit, hints of coffee and grass. Spicy finish. Good balance for a black IPA.
