A different pumpkin beer. Dark fruit and spice. Pumpkin is present, but not over powerful. Spice is not overdone either. This beer almost reminds me of a Belgian strong ale.

Pours very dark amber color, light to medium carbonation. Depending on your tolerance, a full bottle may get you a buzz. Very prominent pumpkin spice flavor, a nice brew reminiscent of autumn. Almost seems like if a barleywine was made from pumpkin beer. Very enjoyable.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1 pint 6 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 8.5% abv and it also lists the beers ingredients.
Appearance: Fat Jack has a dark garnet red color with good clarity. I can just make out some nice lively carbonation flowing up though the beer. From a slow pour down the middle of the glass I got a nice tight collar of foam. Itís light beige in color and hangs on well. This makes for some cool lacing on the glass.
Smell: The aroma is full of tasty spices and malty goodness. It brings notes of cinnamon and fresh out of the oven ginger bread with a nice boozy kick.
Taste / Palate: There is a lot going on in this full bodied festive beer. The base has a solid gingerbread like maltiness with loads of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. It also has notes of vanilla and a very mild bourbon like boozy character. In the middle of all this there is a very mild squash/sweet potatoe like sweetness. The finish brings some light herbal hop bitterness and dryness which blends with the dry spice within. The dry spice lingers and begs you to take another sip.

Great beer!!! Probably my second favorite pumpkin beer(Southern Tier Pumking). I'd like a tad more sweetness; other than that, perfect.

From 22oz bottle (cellared 2 years) to lager glass. Pour is a deep amber, thick tan head with a thicker texture. Nose is pumpkin, spices, alcohol. Taste is heavy bodied, bitter with touches of sweetness coming through. Finishes crisp, awesome pumpkin beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2013 Fat Jack pours mahogany brown and gives off a nice red hue when held up to the light. Two fingers of biscuit colored head gives off an impressive aroma of nutmeg, malt, and the advertised big orange gourd. The first sip reveals an intense bright creamy body followed by an enjoyable warming effect. Big flavor with notes of fall spices, fruit, caramel, and lots of pumpkin. The finish has mild floral notes with a dominant pumpkin end. If its pumpkin you want, its pumpkin you get with this brew.
