4.55/5  rDev +7.1%

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a Teku glass. Bottled on 5/15/14 stamped on the label.

Pours an opaque black color, about 50-60 SRM with a khaki colored head that dissipates slowly. Visible lacing all around the glass as it is consumed with a constant ring around the glass just at the surface of the beer.

Smells of roasted malt, sweet caramel, rich hop oils, and grass.

Tastes sweet upon first sip with a nice chocolatey middle and a dry roasted malt finish with a pleasant bitterness from the hop content.

Very slick on the tongue with a slight prickliness that leaves the mouth yearning for another sip. Leaves the mouth feeling dry upon swallowing but definitely compliments the palate.

One of the best ABA styles I have had the pleasure of consuming. Quite drinkable despite the 8.3% abv and very easy on the palate. Would definitely seek this one out.

Cheers!

#600! Poured into a tulip glass. Thanks, Darren.

A: A deep brownish black with a tan one finger head that lingers. Decent lacing.

S: Piney hops, citrus, grapefruit, a hint of chocolate.

T: Deelishous. Warming, toasty. Chocolate malts mingle with piney hops. Low bitterness. So smooth and creamy.

M: Medium to heavy with medium, frothy carbonation.

O: If Chewbacca could speak English, he'd toast this Wookie Jack for days. A damn fine brew with killer balance. Highly recommended.
