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.

Big black beer, lacy foam cap. Aromas of roast malt, coffee, fruity hops and a little mint. Very well balanced between the dark malt and hop flavors. Again, in the finish, the hop bitters meld well with the dry malt bitterness. I can’t seem to pick out the rye, but don’t care. Love it.

Aromat dużo żywicy, kawy, trochę chmielu. W smaku jeszcze lepiej przyjemna goryczka, żywica, trochę słodyczy, finisz wytrawny z paloną goryczką. Plus ładna prezencja

Pours dark brown, almost black bit a nice tan head. Aroma has some freshly brewed coffee, spruce and pine needles. Some sweeter notes there as well. Taste is super balanced, hop character is still strong but roast is not overpowering and blends in with hops in the finish. Grapefruit seed bitterness combines with dark and deep spicy rye malt character, light roast comes out mainly in the aftertaste. I really like the balanced character of this one, drinks dangerously smoothly, especially when compared with most of the other Black IPA’s I have tried.

dorain (647) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2017
Aus der Flasche auf der Berliner Biermeile 2013 getrunken. Schwarzes IPA mit tollen Südfrucht-/Grapehruitnoten in der Nase. Am Gaumen bleiben zwar nur die Graphfuritnoten, dazu kommt das die Bitterkeit fast hinter den schönen Malznoten verschwindet. Doch in der Summe doch recht ausgewogen. Feine Teil!

W aromacie żywiczny zapach, sporo slodowości, takie zboże. W smaku goryczka na początku całkiem przyjemne goryczkowe, potem wjeżdża mocna paloność.

Franckg (1852) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2017
Bouteille datée du 16/02/2016, bue après près de 15 mois. Robe noire opaque et surmontée d’un col de mousse beige et onctueux. Arômes de liqueur d’orange, amandes, pamplemousse, caramel salé, malt grillé, café, chocolat au lait. En bouche, malt grillé, orange sanguine, zestes d’agrumes, café et traces de résine de pin. Petite dose de céréales poivrées qui complètent bien l’amertume des houblons. Finale plutôt sèche mais qui laisse tout de même entrevoir un goût de chocolat noir qui persiste surprenamment longtemps. Saveurs bien balancées, le seigle n’est pas trop mis de l’avant. Manque un peu de complexité par contre. Texture huileuse et collante, corps moyen.

Pours Black with than fluffy head. the aroma is strong in grapefruit, pine, resin, some chocolate and dark malts. the flavor is grapefruit, and citrus, followed by caramel and chocolate, and some roasted coffee suttle spiciness from the rye. overall this is extremely well balanced and would recommend the body is medium with a bit of dryness.

Light wooden aroma over delicate vanilla and some dark malt aromas. Some tracing hoppy scents. Taste is dry and creamy with bitter finish.

I haven’t had many rye-character driven brews but Wookie takes the cake. Spice Kadence’s with sweet malt counterbalance. A harmony as brilliant as an expertly made black IPA. Black in color with a brown head of foam. Subtle notes of roast and citrus characterized dramatically by spicy rye, caramel and some pine bite. An excellent beer all around.
