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.

Nephilium (1747) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Nice citrus and rye aroma, pours an opaque black with a full light tan head. Very nice flavor, with the spicy rye working with the roasted malts and the hops finishing bitter. Nice long lingering roasted/bitter finish. This is a really good entry in the Black IPA realm, if you like Rye.

Beerclubsa (142) - 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.

Zymurgeist2 (2002) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 12, 2016
I have historically loved this beer, and certainly would have rated it higher on previous tastings (not sure why i have not yet rated it). Spice and chocolate are the main aromas here, with floral hops in the back. Pours a deep, deep brown with garnet highlights and a large, sustained, dark tan head. There is moderate patterning down the glass and the head of small bubbles never leaves. Taste is roast and spice, missing the hops I remember from this beer. Medium-full mouthfeel, with an oily aspect to it and a dry finish. Great palate.

S_Side_Smitty (741) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Pours deep brown with a thick tan head. Aroma is pine & grapefruit with some weightiness. Taste is silky smooth with grapefruit rind bitterness and malts verging on bitter chocolate. The rye is blended beautifully. Nice, nice, nice! The sweetness is perfect. Unbelievable.
