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.

Pours a black body with a slight mocha colored head. Massive tropical aroma with chocolate and roast. Taste continues with a nice blend of chocolate and roast with the tropical notes. Becomes more bitter over time. Medium body with medium carbonation. Great rendition of the style especially for the price. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours jet black with a creamy tan head. Smells floral, with hints of pine laid over rich, dark malts. Taste is similar; strong pine taste up front with rich chocolatey notes which leave offering a lingering bitterness. Medium bodied, average carbonation. A very well balanced black IPA.

It pours black with a creamy brown head. There are aromas of floral and citrus hops with plenty of roasted malts. It has flavors of floral, citrus , and roasted hops that are very well balanced. It has a medium feel to it. It is highly bitter, but not to the point of being overbearing.

Delicious black IPA. Hop character is strong yet balanced with malt backbone.

chicagobears (447) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Aroma of roasted malts. Much like a porter. A bit of fudge in the aroma. Flavor is very malty and chocolatey. Ive had this plenty of time but never had a chance to rate it. Most times Ive had this fresh on tap. For this occasion, this one is bottled and labeled as being bottled a year ago. The flavor has mellowed some and doesn’t have the characteristics of an IPA like I remember. The rye still gives off a nice spiciness. The hops have faded but it ages nicely. Becomes more complex and porter like. Coffee and spices linger.

polo_marco (218) - milton, Vermont, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Smells of roasted malts and rotted fruit with a bit floral at the end. Rich deep black color.Taste starts off with roasted malts followed by a nice bitter bite that carries on throughout the flavor profile with nice tropical fruits coming out after the half way mark with nice dry smooth finish. Fullish sticky body with perfect carbonation for this style. Black IPA is my favorite style of beer and this one sets the bar for flavor and complex changes that take place. Love this one. Nice brew!

TimE (4753) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 12, 2016
Dark brown color. Rye, dark roasted malt, cotton candy hoppy nose. Big full body, tons of dark fruit, rye, dark chocolate moderately bitterness. So well balanced, slightly boozy. Tons of roasted malt, rye lingers in the finish. Awesome.

Sjohnh (655) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2016
One of the toughest styles to do, and this is top notch. The malt carries it, owning the spectrum from light caramel to licquorice. Complex aroma, with aforesaid malt, hops providing fruit and veg notes, and the chocolate flavours kept restrained. Similar taste. Colour is very dark, with a good head. Full body.

On tap at Chuck's Hop Shop in Seattle-USA. Black pour, ivory foam. Nose: sweet citric, more orange, little piney far away, no roast. Mouth: tangerine liquor, refreshing citrus, again no roast, juicy citric sweetness, coconut. Just great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
