Picked up a bomber of Wookey Jack from the local Central Market on the advice of a friend, and was not disappointed.
Poured into a snifter, the Wookey Jack is a nice dark brown color, with a faint mahogany hue at the edges when held up to the light. Light brown head with decent lace. The nose jumps right out at you from the get-go. Big and hoppy with lots of pine and some fruity notes. Faint vanilla and fig. Really nice. The taste is bold as well - sweet up front with lots of smooth hops and a dense smokiness in the finish that I wasn't expecting. Dark fruit with some pepper too. Mouthfeel is firm and crisp.
This is a solid beer. A bit mysterious, even. I feel there are several layers of this beer that I haven't yet tapped into, but will reveal themselves to me as I make my way through the bottle. This is a great beer for a cool fall evening on its own, but would also make a great partner for a nice blue cheese or beef stew. Might go great with fried chicken as well. Good stuff.
