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.

Multifaceted aroma-piney hops up front, dips into rye, rounds out with a roasted grain, hint of chocolate, and closes with more hop nose and some caramel. Dark brown color, and a flavor unlike any ipa I've ever had in a fantastic way. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel, flavor explosion- definitely a subtle dosw of the chocolate and coffee flavors from the dark roast barley. Rye, hops towards the end, boozy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from brewdog online. Deep dark red with with a creamy lasting head. Aroma is coffee and liquorice and a hoppy piney finish. I often find rye beers a bit dry and reedy bit this is really drinkable. Medium body and mild carbonation. Very good.

The_Osprey (3215) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2015
12 fl oz bottle, picked up at Mother Kellyís. Bottled March 2015 at 8.3%. Black with a big dense foamy brown head, spiderweb lacing. Aroma is rye, charcoal, dark chocolate, background pine. Body is light, tingly carbonation, foamy. Taste is spice, pine, wholemeal bread. The finish is the best bit - smoked malts, wood, spice and toffee. Touch of booze showing up. Very good beer.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2015 My first rating. 22OZ bomber. When I bought this it was sitting in a refrigerated cooler at a grocery store, and the date on it was 12/19/14 (at over 7 months old); my guess is, being chilled, it retained most if not all of itís hopped flavor. It was a very good beer, with lots of hop flavor, and a very heavy mouth-feel. It poured very dark, with a nice, light, caramel-colored head. It is one of the better (if not one of the best) IPA type beers I have had.

As soon as the top was popped, the hop aroma exploded into the air. It pours as black as night wit a rich tan head that dissipates into lacings. The flavor is rich comes mix of malt with traces of chocolate, toast and smoke. The finish is hoppy with a great malt support. There's a subtle tar and molasses linger at the end. A nice complex beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

flying_pig (1150) - SCOTLAND - JUL 23, 2015
355ml bottle at home from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£3.60):
Quite a strong tasting beer that hit the spot with a good combination of pine & tropical fruits early on that was balanced out well thanks to the darker malts & some sweetness. Despite the strength, the beer was quite an easy one to drink & I worked my way through it quicker than I probably should have; an excellent beer & one Iíll be on the look out for again.

ANZUShophunter (82) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2015
From bottle in Belgian ale glass. Outstanding mix of hop and malt aroma that carries through to rich taste on the palate. Brings together the best of both worlds like a good black&tan. Another beer Iím glad to see available in QLD!

Reid (2078) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUL 9, 2015
22 oz bomber purchased from Grocery Outlet of all places. $5.39 Pours a very thick hazy darker brown with a large thick and frothy tan head. Spicy rye and malt aromas..seems like citrus and floral hopping very strong, off course darker roast coffee from the malts..very nice. Taste is darker malts, dark dried fruit and espresso coffee some candy and rye spice and the hops take a back seat but they are there. The mouthfeel is just very nice and thick but with enough carbonation to move it..no alcohol tasted. A good beer but i am sure this is past its best being at GC.
