Good solid pumpkin ale. Has all the ingredients: pumpkin spices and rich malty background including real pumpkin. Pours a mostly clear dark orange color into a pint glass. Small light tan head with average retention and streaks of lacing on the glass.

Aroma is pretty robust: Pumpkin spices and some pumpkin. Flavor is similar but the pumpkin and malt is more pronounced.

Mouthfeel is the best part, very rich, malty and smooth. The spicing is just right/ Good pumpkin ale.

22 oz bottle. Pours amber with long lasting off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of bready malt, grassy hops, pumpkin and spices. Body is full and crisp. Pumpkin, caramel, spices, herbal hops nicely balanced on the palate. Finish is long, semi-sweet and spicy. Delicious brew.

Poured into a Duvel tulip class.....

A - This is a great looking beer. Clear, dark brown with a tall head.
S - Aroma is more pumpkin than anything else.
T - Not a fan of the flavors. Tastes more medicinal than anything else. Needs more pumpkin or spices.
M - Medium thick, taste sticks around.
O - This is my second bottle of the season and I'd say it is disappointing. Won't be buying any Fat Jack next year.
