4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted on 8/12/12 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle purchased at Sun Devil. Pours very deep, nearly black, oily dark brown with a thick tan head that slowly recedes to average lace, leaving some thick residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is milk chocolate malt, coffee, pine resin hops, along with the signature spicy aroma of rye. The flavor is exactly the same, plenty of milk chocolate, coffee, spicy rye, and resin hops. The body is full with just under average carbonation and a long spicy rye, chocolate, coffee, and nicely bitter resin hops finish. This isn’t the hoppiest or maltiest Black IPA I have ever had, but it is the most balanced.

Bottled @ BeerTemple, medium sample. Dark color , short frothy head. Aroma of chocolate, piney hops, bit citrus, caramel. Medium bitterness, soft roast, slight choc and caramel sweetness. Awesome balance. Had this before, when it was a bit fresher probably.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black pour, big light brown head. Aroma is a spectacular blend of resinous pine, and roasty coffee malts. Mouth feel is silky, and carb is soft. The finish though kinds falls off. The hops fade big time and the strong roast just fades and is a light cocoa, and hints of brown sugar, with medium bitterness. Started great, finkshed weak.

Pours pitch black with a small light brown head. Smells strongly of pine and citrus with hints of spice. Taste is bitter, subtle spice, piney. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Firestone Walker Wookey Jack Black Rye IPA finishes with a lingering woody dryness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mörkbrun öl med lättare ljusbrumt skum. Doft av rostad malt, tallbarr och lättare citrus och frukttoner. I smaken tillkommer lättare kryddighet från rågen och kådatoner. Inte så fruktig som många svarta ipor och det är positivt enligt mig.
