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.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2012
22oz bottle, dated 8/9/12, from grape & gourmet. pours a dusky, dark, cocoa brown capped by a rich, dense khaki head that leaves thick sheets of lace on the glass. aroma is outstanding with notes of fresh pine forest, orange zest, and caramel malts backed by mild roast, bakers chocolate, and toasted pumpernickel bread with subtle hints of coffee and earth as it warms. flavor is truly wonderful, definitely where this beer shines, with a beautiful balance of orange citrus, pine esters, and grassy hops up front backed by bitter chocolate, roasted malts, mocha latte, and burnt tofffee with hints of vanilla, pineapple, and pie crusts adding complexity through the middle. palate is medium bodied with smooth carbonation and an immense finish of bitter hops, semi-sweet chocolate, and roasted malts. overall, this is certainly one of the best black IPAs out there.

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

Bouteille date du 16/02/2016, bue aprs prs de 15 mois. Robe noire opaque et surmonte dun col de mousse beige et onctueux. Armes de liqueur dorange, amandes, pamplemousse, caramel sal, malt grill, caf, chocolat au lait. En bouche, malt grill, orange sanguine, zestes dagrumes, caf et traces de rsine de pin. Petite dose de crales poivres qui compltent bien lamertume des houblons. Finale plutt sche mais qui laisse tout de mme entrevoir un got de chocolat noir qui persiste surprenamment longtemps. Saveurs bien balances, le seigle nest pas trop mis de lavant. Manque un peu de complexit 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.

I havent had many rye-character driven brews but Wookie takes the cake. Spice Kadences 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.

Deep brown.amber with moderate, thick, light-brown head. Good head retention and lacing. Moderately to heavy malty notes - caramel, woody, slightly spice, citrus and berry. Moderate to heavy sweet and moderately bitter with long duration, hoppy malty, sweet. In overall good, spicy, raw and piney black IPA with some nice berries accents.

JapanCarl (2) - JAPAN - FEB 3, 2017 does not count
Bottle from Asahiya in Osaka, Japan. Pours a very nice fine tan head, which remains with some lacing. Opens with aromas of chocolate and coffee, with a touch of citrus. Nice hearty feel on the tongue, but with lots of subtlety. A good hoppy beer, but also with strong malt flavor. A very bitter rye, grainy aftertaste. A super dark but hoppy beer.
