3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had on tap.
Poured a clear ruby with a tan one finger head.
Aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg along with a little bit of roast. Spice is predominant though. A little bit of vanilla and allspice too.
The flavor was much like the smell. I especially like the roast character as this sets it apart from other pumpkin beers I have had. The beer wasn’t too sweet and never really did become cloying.
Overall, a really great pumpkin beer and probably the best imperial variety I have had. Just wish I could find bottles of this.

Fat jack double pumpkin pours rich red brown with a fine head of small bubbles. Nose is sweet malt, sweet pumpkin hints and light spice. Nutmeg and something else, cinnamon? Body is light and lively. Taste is complex. Medium sweet on the fore, mellow pumpkin middle and finishes warm and with some roasted nut flavors. Very very nice.

Bottle. Pours a dark red hued amber with a creamy light tan head. Aroma is potent and redolent of pumpkig spice. Feel is full and creamy and the variety of spices create a complex flavor that finishes with a dry spiciness. Not bad.

From Batch #1. The pour is a handsome looking deep amber with garnet or red hues and a decent, short-lived head. Loads of aroma explode from the glass including pumpkin, dark malts, allspice, nutmeg, and cinnamon. The body is medium to bold. The taste begins with sweet malts, pumpkin, spices, with a peppery lingering finish. Very nice fall offering.
