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 jet black with a perfectly sized off-white head. Head dissipated at an average rate. Smells strongly of American hops, but not over done. Very hop forward flavor, excellently balanced by the malt and rye flavors. No alcohol flavors, even at 8.3%. The rye is not in anyway over or under done. Overall this is a really incredible beer.

Stoned99 (1102) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 23, 2016
06.08.2016 bottle from Canada Craft club, so 6 weeks old. Aroma: big roasted malt /rye evenly blended with pineapples. Typical black ipa notes. App: pitch black with brown tint, medium frothy moka head, awesome creamy lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, creamy, silky, soft carbonation, light fruitiness with medium roasted bitter finish. Overall: not a big fan of crossed styles like black ipa’s but in this case the blend of stout and ipa is really well balanced. Fruity enough even though it’s not super fresh (thanks CCC for shipping old stuff to clients). Not Firestone’s problem if this isn’t fresh.

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.

robinvboyer (4063) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2016
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.

SPDickerman (1150) - Texas, USA - JUL 18, 2016
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.

NordicV (1912) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2016
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.

78samh (240) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2016
12 oz bottle pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma of coffee, maple syrup and caramel. Taste is spicy and bitter with hints of grapefruit and black peppercorn. Long strong black coffee-like aftertaste. Great black IPA!

bookman10 (900) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Pours a dark, cola-brown, with big, chewy head. Aroma is full of citrus, nice and dank. Flavor is very citrusy, with some coffee, some roasted grain, a touch of licorice even. This is a gooooooood beer.
