A: Poured into a nonic pint glass. Dark brown with little light making it through. Pours with a massive 4 finger head. The head took up half of the glass. The bubbles are off white and homogenous in size.

S: Powerful dark fruits and hops. Earthy and pungent.

T: I am getting grapes and plums. Hints of bitter coffee. There is a "tartness" due to the bitter finish - but it is not unpleasant.

M: Smooth start - with the right amount of carbonation. Dry finish - but doesn't detract from the overall mouth feel.

O: I wouldn't turn this down - but I am not sure I will seek it out again. It is a nice brew but if I am getting something in this style I prefer Southern Tier Iniquity.

Firestone's Wookey Jack came in 8th in my recent 8 beer tasting of Firestone Walker's top beers. Out of the seven BA guys we had at the tasting; Wookey Jack got the poorest reviews with an average review score of 3.78. Unfortunately this beer was about 2 years old and was too old to properly judge. It should have been a lot fresher in all fairness.
