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 (1401) - 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.

Tap at the brewery with commomshawn, rosskyle, and wildcard. Pint glass. Tulip glass. Just a little bit of rye on the nose plus a hop floral quality. Pitch black. Light tan head. Taste has a mild bitterness and a strong rye presence that plays really well. Roasted notes almost give a dark chocolate feel and a bitterness at the end rounds everything out. One of my favorite ryes.

bartzluke (201) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 22, 2015
5 oz chilled pour from tap into a cylindrical tasting glass at Growler Guys in Portland, Oregon. Dark dark brown to black and opaque with a strong off-white head. Nose is malts and foresty (wood and faint pine). Medium body leaning towards light. Taste is a strong burnt malty backbone with a harsh bitterness up front. A lot of the burnt and bitter flavors I donít like in beer without the dimensions I do.

JDBaker11058 (1461) - Maryland, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Appearance: stoutlike black pour with a finger of creamy tan head, average lacing. Aroma: citrus, pine, burnt brown bread, dark chocolate. Taste: dark chocolate and plum, then a wave of grapefruit, apricot, mango and pine, with an undercurrent of toasted pumpernickel. Finish: roasty and bitter, and long. Notes: Not my favorite style of beer, but certainly the most well-executed example Iíve tried. Draft at Klobyís Smokehouse in Maple Lawn, Maryland.

Pours a deep black with a large tan head. Citrus pine hop aroma. First taste of slightly sweet raisin with toasted malts melting into a lingering hop bitterness. Balance is spot on

growler6 (45) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Great marriage of bittersweet chocolate, mango, and earthiness. The sour from the rye puts it over the top. Not overly viscous and goes down smoothly. If an IPA and a dry stout had a love child this would be it. Itís the best Black Ale Iíve tried.

Maxbier (650) - Maryland, USA - MAY 13, 2015
22-oz bomber. Dark pour (nearly black) with one finger light brown head. Citrus aroma with some roast malt hints. Flavor is decent amount of smokey roasty malt but mostly bitterness and citrus and piney hoppy. Love the combo of rye spicyness and piney hop.

5/9/15 from bomber bottle. Nice dark color with good one finger tan head. Nice roasted malt and hop aroma not strong though. Flavor of roasted malt and hops very much IPA like. Quite good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beersmithbacon (77) - San Luis Rey, California, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Roast and hop aroma. Aroma was well balanced. Flavor of lighter coffee and bitterness from hops. Hop aroma and flavor continued on to good bitter end.

presario (4828) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 25, 2015
Dark beer. Minimal head. Enticing hop aroma. More licorice than hops in the flavour. A little bit mouth drying. Dark malt and flavour combination is awesome. ABV is surprising. Dark beer, spirits and hops. Yum.

Dark malt aroma. Earthy and burnt pine hop aroma underneath. Flavor of mostly dark malts with a unique hop addition.
