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.

Ibrew2or3 (6851) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 29, 2014
22oz bottle pours with a crystal clear amber body that supports a nice looking tan head. The aroma offers up cinnamon graham cracker, pumpkin and prune like dark fruity esters. Nice. The taste is rich and deep with roasted cinnamon pie crust, ginger, roasted pumpkin meat and a pile of brown sugary sweetness. This is bold and rich and sweet. Pretty nice pumpkin sipper.

smcolw (530) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Moderate bar-poured head, but it dies very quickly to near nothingness. The beer is ruby brown, but light does pass easily. Appears clear. No lace. Strong cinnamon with a lighter pumpkin smell. Starts off as a homebrewed brown ale but there is smokiness that shows up quickly and lasts through the aftertaste. Thick body, almost oily; high carbonation. I don’t sense "pumpkin" per se, but this may be because the beer doesn’t match the typical pumpkin pie profile. I applaud this. Overall, I like the complexity.
