COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich and luscious brew indulges in flavor with over 28Ibs of pumpkin per barrel, for a full bodied sweetness and deep russet color. Classic pumpkin pie spices of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice ignite a warmth and spark that’s deepened by an undercurrent of roasty smoked malts. The result is a delectable brew full of enveloping layers of flavor and spice. At Samuel Adams we love experimenting. This series of limited edition brews represents some of our favorite small batch creations. Style: Pumpkin Beer Hops: East Kent Goldings, Fuggle Malts: Samuel Adams Two-Row Pale Malt Blend, Caramel 60, Special B, Smoked Malt Extras: Real Pumpkin, Cinnamon, Ginger, Nutmeg, Allspice

Initially released on tap as "Double Pumpkin" in 2011, it was bottled as "Fat Jack Double Pumpkin" in 2012.

Caterwaul (51) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Dark burnt orange-reddish body. White head, one finger. Rich creamy pumpkin spiciness, alcohol. Mmmmm. I like how this one smells. Verrrry toasty and sweet. Good balance between the spice and pumpkin flavor. Sweet, but not terribly cloying. Medium bodied, light carbonation. Not too shabby. I wouldn’t say it beats out Pumking, but this stuff is tasty and cheap. Get you some.

Bottle. Brown beer with a dark cream head. Light spice and malt aroma. Vegetal flavor with spice and malt. Medium bodied. Vegetal notes and spice linger with malt and light toffee.

jake65 (2616) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle 11/21/12: Brown/copper color with a finger of creamy khaki head. Actually smells like pumpkin with the spices being less prevalent than is typical for this style. Tastes a little more vegetal than spicey. Pumpki, bready malt, and florals. Typical spices; nutmeg seems to stand out here.

djd07 (3588) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle as shown. Pours a clear amber with a small white head that quickly diminishes to nothing. The aroma is pumpkin spice and cinammon. Medium mouthfeel with a nutmeg and spice flavor with nice smooth finish. A very good spice beer from BBC.

Strykzone (4933) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Clear red brown. More of a spicy aroma. Flavor, too. Some pumpkin but it is pumpkin with attitude. I like it.

blipp (6114) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours deep amber with a big beige head and sticky lacing. Lightly sweet and pumpkiny up front, which quickly yields to spices, bready and lightly toasted malts, and faint hops. Finishes with fresh pumpkin, and more spices. Solid stuff.

kiwianer (3339) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 13, 2012
The head is ok, the body red-brown. It smells pumkin, alcoholic, a bit creamy special. Quality good but not really my taste. 11/8/8/8/12/8

Westmeister (1754) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Growler pour. Appears in the glass as a deep amber with decent head. Smell is heavy pie spice (nutmeg, cinnamon) with pumpkin. Tast is initiailly quite sweet but is rounded out by the fullness of the pumpkin and spices. Lingers a bit spicy. Not as full as some other heavy as some other sweet pumpking beers which is why I thought this was quite nice.

Tap at Saucer. Dark reddish-brown with a big beige head. Aroma of pumpkin pie and sweet malts. Taste is nicely blended pumpkin, malt, and spice. Solid body.
