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

Garrold (2362) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2015
Bottle. Beer Central, Sheffield. Clear, very dark, reddy brown. Thin, lasting, tan head. BrŻlťed grapefruit. Raspberry. Chocolate malts. Taste is dark chocolate sweet, and dark chocolate bitter. Smooth, easy palate. Hop bite kicks in. Drinkable to the tune of silly. Long, rich, bitter finish. Very nice.

Opaque black beer with a thin head. Dry malt, rye, grassy citrus aroma. Flavour is really interesting. Rye again, dry citrus, a slightly floral feel to it. Quite crisp despite having some earthier qualities. Complex and delicious. Only way it could be much improved for me would be if it was just a touch richer and maybe a bit sharper in the aftertaste.

Bacterial (2089) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Weird that I have never rated this beer since Iíve had it several times. Dark black pour with a thick frothy light tan head. Big pine nose with some lingering malt. Nice mouthfeel. Spicy pine and citrus hops with a nice balance of roast malt. Yummy.

Keg at Andrew Usher & Co. Very very dark and deep ruby with brown head. Nose is dark and roasted malts pine, citrus hops. Taste is roasted malts, piney hops, rye bread, dark chocolate. Finnish is bitter and rye. Quite fizzy carbonation.

commonmac (614) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 23, 2015
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 (217) - 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 (1471) - 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 (48) - 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 (655) - 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.
