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.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with white lacing. Aroma of rye, hops, pine, and floral notes. Taste is creamy, with pine hops, rye, sugar cane. Lingering bitter creaminess. Different, but it works.

Bomber. Yeah, man, its good. Beautiful beer, seems viscous, black, with a medium persistent tan head and very good adhesiveness. Nice medium aroma, not overpowering but pleasant, aromatic. Taste is different and distinctive, Ill stop short of saying unbelievable, but it is impressive what theyve done with rye, for sure. It just looks, smells, and tastes like good beer, and I applaud them for trying a hard style, even though itll never be my favorite.

1pint 6oz bottle. Pours black and frothy. Fruity aromas with hints of chocolate notes, a new dimension for IPA and Porter lovers. I can imagine the complex thought that went into this beer. Malty, citrus, spicy and hoppy...excellent! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber poured into a goblet. Pitch black pour with thick khaki head. Hops fill the nostrils. First sip tastes of burnt malt then shifts immediately to sweet resiny hops. No doubt a giant malt backbone, but its the hops that entice my palate. Slightly charred malt & bitter hop finish push this towards the top of my list for black IPAs. Well built beer!

Bottle. Dark brown beer with a small beige head. Berry, pine, sweetish, rye, chocolate, hoppy and fruity aroma. Hoppy, tart, pine, rye, fruity and bitter flavour with some coffee notes.

Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark black with a moderate, but dissipating deep tan head. Aroma has hints of piney, citrusy hops mixed well with toasted and burnt caramel, and a small hint of alcohol. Taste is a very well balanced hoppy and coffee-like bitterness with a mild sweetness. Full body with oily mouth feel. Roasted bitter notes last in finish. Excellent beer.

allfreej (556) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Bottled. Black pour with a foamy light brown head. Great lacing. Spicy hop nose. Caramel malt undertone but the hops dominate. Rich caramel malt. Very assertive bitter hop finish. He hops are spicy and a little grassy. Medium mouthfeel with a medium high level of carbonation. Very enjoyable. The hop bitterness overshadows the maltiness and the alcohol doesn't really jump out at you. ---Rated via Beer Buddy from my iPad.

Smells chocolaty and a little creamy with some light prune or raisin undertones. Black black color and a short lived brown head. Sweet jesus thats a good taste.Nutty and cream with raisin or licorice and wood after taste. This is surprisingly smooth. I would drink this with, well, just about anything. Steak, dessert, fuck it, a cracker. Great job Firestone!

What a great beer to celebrate rating #1000 of California brewed beer.

22oz bomber pours with a mahogany head supporting a dark tan head of foam. The aroma offers a mix of malt sweetened dank earthy onion to garlic like hops mixing with citrus and a bit of dark roasted malts. The taste is similar and rich and I can really sink my teeth into it. I get firm citrus hops and dank garlic hops that mingle seamlessly with a dash of pine hop bitterness and a light degree of dark roasted malts. This comes together beautifully and the more I try it the more I want. Ive had this over and over again and just could NOT get myself to take down notes and capture the experience. So this time I am despite the poor note taking execution here. I love this stuff.

The rye, malts and some floral jump right out of this bomber when you open it. I continue to get these smells as I poor into a glass. The color is a solid black with a tight bubly cap. The taste has a peppery rye taste nicely balanced by malt and the hops of a double IPA. This beer will not let you escape noticing it. As I continue drinking a pleasant companionable booziness pervades. I cant wait to circle back around to this one.
