A great beer. Definitely an acquired taste. I usually don't enjoy these types of beers but this one was so smooth and tasty. Has a very robust flavor.

Black, only letting a little redness show through. Smells overwhelmingly like an IPA. Citrusy, piney notes with a little roastiness behind it. This tastes good. Floral and pine like hops leave a medium bitterness and then there is kind of a roasted aftertaste. Nice mouthfeel on this. Very good black IPA.

Appearance - Pitch Black color. Big, course head. Milkshake like stickage.

Smell - Fresh roasted coffee. Malt. Hops. Alcohol.

Taste - Big, toasty malt. Bittersweet chocolate. Black licorice. Alcohol. Hoppy finish.

Mouth - Oily. Buttery. Good carbonation.

Overall - If you believe that some is good and more is better, you're going to love this beer. Firestone tells us that Wookey Jack is a Black Rye IPA. I would have guessed a hoppy California Porter. Regardless, this is one big, tasty ale.
