Firestone Walker Brewing Co. - Wookey Jack, poured into a DFH Spiegelau IPA glass.

Look - Pours brown and settles black with a brown hue around the sides. Massive soapy head with tons of lacing.

Smell - Roasted dark fruit and citrus hops, some malty sweetness. There's more to it here and you can keep pulling aromas from it, especially as it warms.

Taste - So much flavor. Definite roasted coffee and chocolate, dates, fruits, and piney hops. Very complex and quite good. All nearly perfectly blended with a touch of rye.

Mouthfeel - Rests slightly sticky with a rye and wood flavor, like licking a barrel (if you can take that as "in a good way"). Not overly boozy but slightly warming. Great drinkability.

Overall - Easily my favorite black ale/black ipa/black rye. Great job! Cheers!

This was bottled on 4/11/13 and is 106 days old. Firestone walker gives their beers 120 days.

Pours black with a thick head of beige foam that fell slowly. Left some lace. Nose is not loud. Piney hops, a smidgen of chocolate, coffee, toasted malt. Grapefruit. Earthy, spicy and a touch of caramel malt. Taste is dark roasted malt. Gentle grapefruit that was a little sourish with some hop bitter. It's smooth and a little heavy not really crisp or biting from the rye. In fact the rye is mellow and not at all bold and has a mellow spice to it. Light resin, a little oily. Moderate carbonation and finishes dry and a bit muddled. Lingering bitter in the after taste with a touch of that grapefruit. I thought this was dull and could have used more pep and more spice.
