Share with Mr. Biv

Dark chestnut color with a thin, dense head. Smells like cinnamon, nutmeg, graham crackers and molasses. A little smoke?

Doesn't taste as spicy as I feared although 6 months in the cellar may have helped. The pie spice is focused on cinnamon and nutmeg with minimal allspice. Allspice is easily overdone and I liked the restraint here. Malt lacks any actual pumpkin flavor but is a nice blend of graham cracker and brown sugar. Easily the best part of Fat Jack is the thick, smooth big body. It's a hearty mouthfeel, I feel nourished.

Some pumpkin beers are like pumpkin pie, some like pumpkin muffins and some actually taste like pumpkin. Fat Jack tastes like pumpkin bread. One of the better beers from one of my least favorite styles.
