3.7/5  rDev +2.2%

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint. First production run, labeled "Fat Jack Double Pumpkin" (Labeled 8.5% as well)

A: Pours a clear orangeish amber with a 2finger light brown/amber head. Some retention and lacing present.

S: Smells lots of spices (nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon) some pumpkin and a hint of smokiness.

T: Up front there is a huge hit of smokeyness followed by all the goodies. Pumpkin and loads of spices (nutget, allspice, cinnamon). Makes the finish very sweet.

M: Medium body and carbonation.

O: Overall, not bad. Lots of flavor mid to late in the taste which threw me off in the beginning. Be sure to drink around 50F, as it tasted better after sitting for ~10min.

Single finger head on a Clear amber with orange hues. Some lacing.

S: pumpkin and cola with some malt.

T: musty pumpkin flavor throughout with additional herbal and earthy notes on a smooth malt background.

M: moderate to full body and moderate carbonation.

Overall this one goes milder on the pumpkin side and evens it out with a nice malt flavor and it's not too sweet.

4.08/5  rDev +12.7%

A – Dense, cranberry body with orange brown highlights. Bone-white head settles into a creamy dusting.

S – Deep and delicious. Great nose for a pumpkin brew. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin are elevate under a light booze. The net effect is bright with a complex depth.

T – Smooth opening with a mellow brown sugar sweetness. Cinnamon toast, cider, pumpkin, and nutmeg explode in the center. Tingly booze lightens the backend as the profile finishes with mulling spice.

M – Medium light body is smooth with a semi-sweet finish.

O – A very solid pumpkin beer, one of the better ones of the season.

3.78/5  rDev +4.4%

On-tap at the Distillery in Savannah, GA.

Pours a very dark copper with a creamy off-white head that settles to a nice cap. Nice aromas of sweet pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and the typical Sam Adams caramel malt profile. Taste is similar to the nose, sweet and malty with strong pumpkin flavors and a good amount of spices. Definitely taste like a double version the the regular Pumpkin Ale, that about sums it up. Mouthfeel is smooth and a touch sticky, with a medium-full body and good carbonation. Solid Pumpkin Ale, I'd love to see this bottled next year!
