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.

Sampled on 4/28/2012. This black IPA pours an eclipse black color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized beige foamy head, with nice retention. The aroma is roasty malt, a little chocolate and a little coffee, some citrus and some spiciness. A medium bodied black IPA. The malts are roasty, carmely, fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and citrusy. Nice rye spiciness. Nice carbonation. Roasty, citrusy and spicy. Nice balance. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Bomber thanks to Craig. Pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head. A rich nose of roasted malts, chocolate and light fruity hops. The flavor is similar: rich sweet and bittersweet chocolate, light bitterness, fruit, spicy rye. Very good. Mellow, like Dubhe but a bit less.

Black with a bit of off white head. Aroma is roast and citrus and so is the taste with some more developed coffee notes. $6/22oz ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Marsiblursi (3009) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2012 (Bottle) Pours black with a pale brown head. The aroma holds spicy rye, floral/fruity/grassy hops, mild roast, asphalt and a touch of liquorice. Hints of mint. Round and elegant nose. The flavour is light sweet, medium to heavily bitter and light acidic with fruity/floral/grapefruity hops, mild roast, liquorice, asphalt, dry caramel, earth, spicy rye and earthy tobacco. The mouthfeel is soft, round and smooth with a light carbonation. Lingering, aggressive resinous hop finish. Medium bodied.

BOLTZ7555 (2822) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 26, 2012
This is, without doubt, the best Black IPA ever brewed! Huge bright citrus and evergreen in the nose, not at all muddled by the dark malt that gives the brew its chestnut/mahogany body. Towering meringue-like cap sits atop the beer, creamy latte-brown in color. Resinous, piney, orange peel and lemon-zest forward. If I was blindfolded, wouldn’t have guessed the style. This was all IIPA and the hue was insignificant. Grapefruit essence sticks to your tongue and the roof of your mouth like peanut butter...leaving a welcome reminder. Amazing!

Nearly black pour with a very creamy tan head. Aroma is loaded with spicy rye and hops. Such a creamy brew! Hops, rye and some light roasted malt. Damn!

TheJestersBeer (2083) - SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2012
Draught. Pours almost black, with a brown tinge, brown head. Hoppy, aromatic, spicy aroma, spruce, mint, heather, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate. Off-dry, medium to full bodied, high bitterness, creamy CO2. Hoppy, roasted taste, spruce, resin, ashes, malt, chocolate, thyme, smoke. Excellent! (2012-05-04)

Mr_TBone (168) - Hollywood, California, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Pours almost black with a big tan head that maintains great lacing. Big roasty nose with grassy, citrus hops. Subtle cream on the mouth, chocolate, orange peels and just so damn drinkable. What a great beer.

Signed bomber to oversized snifter (big thanks to daknole). Looks good; dark in color with sticky lacing. Smells good too; nice and hoppy. Tastes great! Excellent balance of malt and hops. Nice on the palate too. Damn good beer!
