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.

The all spice is pretty dominant in the aroma, smells alot like christmas. There are hints of rye bread and ginger as well.
Nice dark red clear appearance with beige head
Tastes like gingerbread and finishes of spicy.
Medium body and soft carbonation also has some alcohol warmth,
First pumpkin beer I tasted, its pretty nice and the seasoning make it suitable to drink by the fireplace at christmas. The taste is nice but could have been more powerfull. Also the finish is pretty short but after while you start noticing ginger spicyness on your tounge

Spicearama. Brown ale with nice lacing. Sweet and spicy aroma. Reminds me of Christmas. Taste of smoke, classical christmas spices, some pumpkin. A little too sweet. Ok, but I would not buy it again.

En trevlig julöl är första tanken när man doftar. Lagom söt. Ingen beska. Brödig. Kryddig, ganska rejält men ändå inte för mycket. Ingefära och muskot är tydligast. Inte så mycket pepparkakor som senast jag smällde i mig en pumpaöl. Fick en flarra av en polare på jobbet. Tack för den

Smak och doft av humle, malt, brunt socker, karamell, muskot, ingefära och kanel. Kunde ha blivit en fin öl med är på tok för sötsliskig för min smak. Rund, len med en trevlig beska.
