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.

Another perfect example of a great brew from Firestone. Incredible hop aroma. Black slight roast bitter in hops and grains. I love the brew for sure.

Bottle at a friends house during a party. So much hoppy goodness. The malts were very toasty and roasty. But still hoppy and bitter. Good stuff.

Linnet (1597) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2016
Smokey, ashy, lots of coffee, spicy, grass, floral, alcohol, grapefruit and pine. Black colour, medium tan head, good amount of lacing. Noticably sweet, big bite, salty, peaty, ABV well integrated, extremely complex and layer upon layer in the taste. Fullbodied, soft carbonation, bitter, salty and lightly peaty finish. World class!

Lore (1981) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 5, 2016
dark brown colour with ruby notes, large, creamy beige head, which lasts for several minutes; aroma of grapefruit, overripe pineapple nd tangerine notes, toasted rye bread, moderate roastedness and hints of mild roasted coffee; taste is the same; I think it would be very hard to brew a more perfectly balanced black IPA; very good!

Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a deep brown to black with a finger of beige cappuccino-like head. Heady hop aromas with roasted espresso and toasted cacao nibs. Average carbonation with a dark chocolatey mouthfeel. More coffee and roasted sorghum notes. Fantastically complex. Bitter, heady finish with more cacao. Awesome.
