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.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Tap at Alewife: Pours a near opaque black with a khaki lacing head. Rich bouquet- rich resiny hops, (chinook?) with a hempy note. Some very subtle dark cocoa under the resiny hop richness. A hint of anise as well. Nice silky body- softly carbonated. Rich flavor, balanced. A hint of soft roast ( dark cocoa) provides a solid malt base to hold up the huge resiny hop character. Bitter, rich oily hop resins- earthy with a long finish of American west coast hop oils and a dark chocolate roast undertone. An outstanding black IPA.

Grainy aroma with hops and pine resin. Pours a darknlack stout color with a thick tan head. Tastes of grain with hints of rye and hops. Dry feel, full bodied with a chalky finish.

It has to be one of the best black IPAs available. There are others that are as good, but none are better. If you can try this beer, you really should, you won’t be let down. "Stone the crows!" as Real Ale Craft Brew says on this beer.

Banksiz (39) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Complex nose, hoppy with some pine and citrus at first, but then gives way to a caramel-banana-butterscotch maltiness and esteriness. Bitter, with a slightly sweet malty backbone. Full creamy body. Goes down warm, like a glass of brandy. Great beer, although not quite the complexity, I’d like to see in an 8.3% beer.

Fantomasus (239) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Black pour with a flimsy off white head. Aroma is strong: caramel, bread, cereal, roasty, resin, floral, grass, dough, leather, banana, cooked vegetables, raisin, vanilla, woody, wow! Taste: winds up being well balanced but in the weirdest way: sweet and bitter give way to sour and umami, then salt. Palate is just a blast of bitter. Quite an offering.

Bebum (358) - - JAN 23, 2015
Black, smoothly coating lace. Middle body, moderate flavor, well rounded and expressive mouthfeel, lingering palate, pleasant finish. Moderately bitter, well balanced by a slightly sweet background, just right acidity. Roast grains and other subtle flavors. Not a showy beer but it grows on you, the longer you drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Dark with great lacing. Piney lemony with great body. Wonderful balance between sweet and bitter. An amazing beer.

Sevenlee (1432) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2015
Pours totally black with a brown head. Aroma is malt, roasty, caramel, fruit, wood, some spices and hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a roasty and fruity finish. Excellent!

It’s an IPA but black. Can taste some gentle ash. Looks like it should be heavier but very light and smooth.

dnstone (2251) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Dark brown color with nice soft tan head. Dry-hoppy aroma. Roasty stout like flavors followed by the dry hopped character of an IPA. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RRistow12 (314) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Tasted from bottle. Pours dark brown almost black with tan head. Aroma is chocolate, faint coffee, with a little caramel. Taste has the spicey rye but not overly rye tasting. Dark chocolate, coffee, caramel, bread. Medium bodied. Moderate to heavy bitterness with mild to moderate sweetness. Excellent black ipa with a nice rye kick. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
