This is a very smooth and enjoyable beer. Even with a little lingering alcohol taste, it’s still great. The aroma is out of this world. When David popped open the cap, the aroma was very apparent & inviting. A nice way to start drinking your beer! The color is beautiful on this baby! Plus, I’ve mentioned before, but any time I drink a beer that’s pretty much black, I feel all hard core. I would definitely buy Wookey Jack again. It’s a pretty strong beer and too much to drink on my own, but shared with David it is perfect. I guess my only complaint, which is hardly a complaint at all, is I’m not sure I picked up on any rye in this beer. Unless it was mixed in with the malt flavor? I’m not sure! I’m certain Firestone knows what their doing with their beers. I haven’t been disappointed with any of their beers yet. If you see Wookey Jack, do yourself a favor and buy this beer! Out of the three Firestone beer’s I’ve reviewed, Wookey Jack was my favorite.
Ryder was begging to be included in this brew review since he kept jamming his head into me while I was trying to take pictures. Pretty funny perspective of him from head on.
