Started by two brother-in-laws, Firestone Walker began brewing back in 1996. The Paso Robles based brewery has since increased their production to over 150,000 barrels yearly and has also recently started canning! Be sure to also check out their Union Jack IPA, voted the 2006 “Best Beer in America” by Mens Journal!
Appearance: Pours an opaque black with a fluffy brown head that leaves a decent amount of lacing as you enjoy
Aroma: Very strong presents of hops and rye with a hint of sweet caramel
Taste: Very mild taste for the high ABV level. Hops and rye are present upfront with a bit of bitterness that transitions to a more mild sweet taste. Dry hops go very well with the malted rye for a very balanced brew
Mouthfeel: Mild to medium level of carbonation that suits the flavor well. Small amount of bitterness left on the palate after you drink. Very drinkable
Overall: Wookey Jack brings a great combination of dry hops and malted rye. Just the right amount of bitterness that transitions to a more smooth caramel aftertaste. Appeals to both stout lovers and IPA drinkers alike. Defiantly worth a try!
