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.

lamas (1527) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 28, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Batch #2. A clear ruby pour with a thick & creamy khaki head. The aroma features some crisp caramel maltiness, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, a rich breadiness, and some hints of pumpkin. A smoky woodsiness and a touch of molasses become apparent with a little warmth. Relatively medium-bodied on the way down. Caramel, molasses, and a big breadiness dominate upfront taste-wise. A little vanilla extract in the middle. Raisins and squash at the end. Some smoky woodsiness here and there. Lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and ginger from start to finish. Kinda boozy. A solid pumpkin beer.

Not my favorite of the pumpkin beers, but not bad. Has a scotch ale feel to it with some spicy cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg notes. Have an underlining smoky flavor that is a bit too strong for my liking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very Excited to try this and it did not disappoint. Doesn’t look or smell like anything special, but has a very distinct flavor that I have yet to find in other seasonal pumpkin brews.

Very spicy. Full of cinnamon, molasses and earth. A nice clear reddish-brown color. Lots of lace. A strong pumpkin presence dominates though.

hfmejias (1224) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2013
22 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark copper in color, nice off white head and lots of lacing on the glass. Strong pumpkin aroma, some spices, malts and some alcohol, nice. Taste is a bit boozy, however is well balanced with malts, spices and pumpkin; so far I think is one of the best pumpkin ales I have tried this season. Very good brew. Enjoyable.

On draft at lost dog in McLean. Pours a clear cola with an off white head. Malty nose. Flavors of caramel, raisins and pumpkin. Pumpkin spices are subdued. Quite tasty.

SaintMatty (6465) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 25, 2013
Bottle - Copper in colour. Roasted malt, dried fruit and some slightly smoky notes in the aroma. Fruity, nutty and roasted taste with caramel, ash and sultanas featuring in the roasted and sweet finish. I have not tasted enough pumpkins to be able to discern and detect it here.

Doghair (312) - Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Pours heavy cloudy rust color with minimal foam. Not an appealing appearance. Caramel and spice in the aroma. Sweet caramel, malt, nutmeg and vanilla are prominent in the taste. Some brown sugar in the finish. The spices are not overdone. Heavy on the tounge with good carbonation. This is a great pumpkin ale. Easily one of my favorites.

Copper red pour with off white head. Aroma is light pumpkin and spice, and a little musty. Taste is sweet, pumpkin and spice. A little to sweet, but good.
