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.

GTAEgeek (1372) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Pitch black, with a medium, beige head, with nice lacing. Light roasted malts, resin, butterscotch, and rye bread. A little sweet, with a mild, smooth bitterness and a very light sour note in the finish. Light to medium body, hard, and a little thin. Overall, this is a very balanced and pleasant beer, with a weak palate, but good aroma.

Solid black with an inch of pillowy foam. Aroma is toast, grapefruit, pine. Huge progression of flavours as you take a drink. Starts with a fragrant, zesty hop with citrus, pine. Bitterness begins. Opens up with more grain - toast, and a well...rye flavour. Then as it warms up and you finish a sip, it sweetens out a bit, leaving a long, long roasty finish. I usually glaze over the palate section of these ratings, but man does this have a nice mouthfeel.

KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAR 7, 2015
It pours an opaque black with a creamy khaki colored head and possesses notes of dark roasted malts, citrus hops, coffee, a decent woody smokiness and a touch of Rye. This is a nice dark roasty brew with a hint of Rye, a somewhat Hoppy backbone, a smooth drinkability and a slight alcohol warming at the end. Needless to say it is delicious... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

Imaril (40) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 7, 2015
Aroma is fruity with a tropical lime kick. Pours thick black with frothy tan head. Taste is sweet and bitter char from the rye and dark malts then the hops hit you with a juicy fruity bitter punch. Reasonably carbonated and thick mouth feel. The highish alcohol is well hidden behind the hops.

Dark brown to black pour with a two finger tan head. Malt aroma, sweet upfront taste followed by the Rays taste and hops bitterness. Would love to drink this again.

Slightly smokey smell. Dark colour with little head. Almost tastes slightly flat. Not a brilliant beer, but drinkable. (K)

Huge piney, roasty aroma. Sticky caramel. Flavor is balanced, complex nuanced and delicious. Sweet, spicy, dry, bitter, hoppy, delicious. Awesome beer.

kraddel (4244) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - FEB 20, 2015
Pours blacl. Smell is only hops ( pine, some fruits) . Taste is bitter, slightly roasted in the back. One of those black ipas that taste almost exact the same as a regular ipa. Never got the point in those, really. Low carbo, rather thin mouthfeel. Bit bitter back.
