Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1 pint 6 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 8.5% abv and it also lists the beers ingredients.

Appearance: Fat Jack has a dark garnet red color with good clarity. I can just make out some nice lively carbonation flowing up though the beer. From a slow pour down the middle of the glass I got a nice tight collar of foam. It’s light beige in color and hangs on well. This makes for some cool lacing on the glass.

Smell: The aroma is full of tasty spices and malty goodness. It brings notes of cinnamon and fresh out of the oven ginger bread with a nice boozy kick.

Taste / Palate: There is a lot going on in this full bodied festive beer. The base has a solid gingerbread like maltiness with loads of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. It also has notes of vanilla and a very mild bourbon like boozy character. In the middle of all this there is a very mild squash/sweet potatoe like sweetness. The finish brings some light herbal hop bitterness and dryness which blends with the dry spice within. The dry spice lingers and begs you to take another sip.

A very average and forgettable pumpkin ale.

2.91/5  rDev -19.6%

Undated bottle at 45 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of spices
Head average (4 cm), light brown, frothy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm ring
Lacing spotty; few small islands of various sized bubbles
Body dark amber, clear
Flavor begins slightly bitter with spices like a pumpkin pie; ends sweeter with an alcohol taste. No hops, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, oily, lively carbonation.

Not a particularly good beer, probably would taste better very cold. The appearance and aroma are both OK.
