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.

This beer is one of my favorites. Itís fairly inexpensive, has 8.3 ABV, unsure of the IBUs, tastes great, has no bitter after taste like other Black IPAs.

Black in the glass with a cola colored head. Wonderful spicy citrus hops aroma. More spicy citrus on the palate that morphs into a burnt pizza crust flavor. There is a bit of a minty citrus note in the aftertaste. Overall, nice and easy drinking but still complex... and not too pricy either!

Pours an oily black with a big tan head that holds well and leaves ample lacing; juicy citrus aromas on the noise; a hoppy hit than a coffee dark ale infusion finishing with a classic IPA finish. Complex.

Draught @ Flying Saucer, Addison. Thick dark pour, little head. Full flavoured, smooth and thick because of the rye I guess, mild vanilla, heavy hop finish. Glorious.

ARH (314) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2014
On tap poured into an IPA glass. The aroma is a burnt grain and fresh rye combination with some hints of sweet berries. Itís a dark, near-opaque, oily caramel brown with a thick tan head. The head reduces down to a thick ring and leaves an above average, puffy lacing. Itís highly burnt bitter (60 IBU seems likes an underestimate) with a light sweetness. The average amount of active carbonation helps the thicker texture to go down. Itís a full body with a light finish of dark fruit, some spice, caramel, and rye, but the aftertaste is heavily smokey and burnt - almost charred - with a dull spiciness.

Bottle. Basically a perfectly balanced black rye ipa. Chocolate, citrus, dark fruit, light rye spice that comes in and out, medium carb, dark semi-rich malts on the feel, dry finish. Very complex and balanced for so much going on. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bif (1386) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Pours a black color with a creamy tan head and good lacing. Aroma of citrus, fruit, roasted malt and grain. Taste of roasted malt, fruit, bit of citrus and fresh grain. Nice bitterness and a dry finish. Pretty full body, smooth and creamy with a robust malty backbone. Excellent beer sets the standard for the style.

Black brown pour with light tan head. Aroma is roast malt, and mild rye. Taste follows nose. Very mellow, but still full of flavor. Nice warm finish.

(on tap @†Mikkeller & Friends) Pours black with creamy, medium, tan head. Good retention and beautiful lace. Aroma is indeed gnarly with malty, rye character and perhaps some subtle herbal hop notes. Oily texture, soft carbonation, medium body with a green, bitter and warming finish. Flavour seems to funny spicy and peaty notes along with the dark, toasted malt. Overall hard to classify and somewhat different from how I like my black IPAís.

Bottle from Keg N Bottle National City: Created a thick fluffy shaving cream lather foam head while a deep dark color of brown liquid rested below. Aroma is strange and funky blend of assorted scents that begin with lightly toasted dark malt but then morph into a bold smell of freshly milled barley malts. Some faint background aromas consist of mild hops that give off just enough character to carry this as an IPA but again with the malts that suggest hints of chocolate or tea. The drink is subtle with minor notes of spicy hop flavorings but it could be due to the addition of rye that is bringing out the pleasant and welcomed spice profile. Rich and robust dark malts are what build up the true character complexity of this recipe which makes for an interesting drink. Good stuff considering the price of a bomber was only $7.99
