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.

Black in color with a tan head... Aroma of citrus hops and roasted malts... Flavor is slightly spicy from the rye, prominent roasted malts with mildly bitter finish... Perfectly balanced hops, very nice beer

I grabbed this with a bunch of other rye beers and totally missed that it was a black rye IPA. So... when I poured out this dark ale with a thick, lasting head and smelled licorice, coffee, and chocolate I was a little surprised! 22 oz bomber poured into a pint glass. Color of dark walnut with a thick tan head and lots of lacing. Aroma is anise, coffee, and a hint of chocolate--surprisingly malty. Once you start drinking, however, the IPA qualities show up a little more. It's pretty heavily hopped, but they come across as sweet peach and citrus flavors--more subtle than I'd expect. Unlike most of the other rye beers I've had, you don't really get much of a rye flavor in this. It's definitely there, but there are enough complexities in the beer that it's never really in your face. Really good!

Poured from a bomber it has a dark color in the glass with a good sized head. Aroma of citrus and rye. The taste is smooth for am IPA, I was expecting more of a bite. There was plenty of citrus on the taste with some pine but it went down very easy Very good beer.

On tap at Venti’s South. A very solid India Dark Ale from one of my favorite breweries. Flavors of citrus, pine, roasted malts and chocolate. A well balanced brew.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2012 22 oz bomber split with Hey-Zeus. Pours pitch black with a sticky, light brown head. Very earthy, leafy, grassy, fruity hop aroma. Flavor is surprisingly malty, but everything is balanced. The dark malt and the hop character complement each other perfectly. Light bodied but packed with deliciousness. Great beer.

22 oz bomber at The Ginger Man. Pours a black cola with a medium sized tan head. Aroma of pine resin, pine tar and grapefruit. Taste is much the same as the aroma.

Nose of dark roast some moderate citrus and floral hops and spicy rye. Pours black with a tan head soft lace. Roasted malts light spicy rye citrus and floral hops. Really well balanced smooth spicy and bitey hop notes all in one. Good.

New dark sauce from FW?! Count me in. Pours thick as night with a foamy white tanned head. Piney and citrusy roasted notes hit the nose. You can tell this one is going to be thick upon the first sip. Velvety smooth across the palate, elements of sweet roasty malts, hints of chocolate and coffee start you out, and lead you into a tropical fruit blast towards the finish. At the finish line, a gourd of juicy hoppy goodness. Layered beer. Damn damn good.

Dark, dark pour. Amazing nose is like being kicked in the face by a grapefruit ninja wearing rye sandals. Strong citrus hops early, hints of sweetnes in the early profile with plenty of rye bitterness late. Rye comes on stronger as it warms. Delicious, delicious beer.

Bottle at the Semi-Final Tasting. Deep brown color with a creamy tan head that slowly recedes. The nose is chocolate coffee ice cream, oak wood and chocolate covered orchard fruits. The taste is lightly bitter mocha, coffee rinds, almonds and wood. Lightly fruits. Really creamy, velvety mouthfeel rich. Great.
