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.

Best fucking rye beer ever. Blows most CDA or "American Black Ale"s out of the water. This was my #1 @ OBF 2013, the line of laps. You know, where youre on day 4 and taking victory laps. BTW hot tip - we had to make a couple new rules this year @ OBF 2016. That International tent...if I didnt love beer so much I would have thought their CDA (I cant recall brewery, but the Netherlands) was shameful because it stomped all over the locals. Its like it has .... THE NAME CASCADIA(N) right tf in it. oh yeah. The rules. Okay. So in 2016, we noticed this thing, but not till thursday...I got in late on weds, my bad. But anyhow...rule developed. first rule. (which was actually developed after the second rule because we noticed it first) When you get to OBF 2017, IMMEDIATELY AND WITHOUT HESITATION go to the international tent and DRINK ALL THE BEERS. Youll understand why in a second. In 2016, we noticed something. We were bouncing around, still polishing off the main 88+ stragglers/fillers, and crossed paths a few times with the IT (for brevity). I was rinsing a glass (they had no line at their dedicated rinse station) and saw two kegs blow, IIRC both from China. See the cool thing about the IT is that its not a bunch of international beer styles - its people from other parts of the world brewing OUR styles. Full circle, my friends. You are loved. Anyhow. The second rule is to make sure to troll by every 30-45 min and ensure something hasnt cropped up. Some were deep - they had their kegs like all week long; others had many unlisted. Yeah. the clue came when my overly and overtly pedantic friend tried to reconcile his tap list. Yes. We actually had two unlisted taps and missed who knows how many. We also missed one of the listed. Poof...one keg, apparently. So, those are the rules. Out of my IT picks, its a toss up between Hell and Damnation (Hel & Verdoemenis) and the Dutch CDA... DAMN ITS GOOD TO BE ALIVE https://youtu.be/FZLgXOz1om4 I hope to find many perfect beers in my lifetime and this is one of them.

Beerclubsa (147) - Strand, SOUTH AFRICA - JAN 15, 2017
340ml from Andre. Pours a clear jet black with a light tan head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee and light citrus. Palate has medium body, medium carbonation. Flavours of coffee, chocolate, sherry (from some oxidation) and a smooth hop bitterness. Unfortunately this was an older bottle, so the hops had dropped significantly but still a very tasty beer.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a half pint glass. The appearance is a clear dark brown with a very large thick brown head. The aroma is hops, pine and some malt. The taste is a very strong blend of malt and hops with some detectable alcohol. A very good beer.
