COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Jacked is brewed with fresh pumpkin and fall spices and has been aging in Oak barrels for 6 months. The oak barrels add subtle nuances of toasted vanilla and bourbon notes. With an ABV of 10.31% (a play on the date of Halloween), Jacked is a big, unique pumpkin ale.

Pours copper with a couple fingers of off white head. Smell is vanilla, graham cracker, pumpkin mash and spices. Taste is heavy, a bit rum like, boozy, decent amount of pumpkin and vanilla flavors. It’s not my favorite pumpkin beer. If you like Rumpkin, you would like this.

(750ml bottle thanks to ericandersnavy) clear medium amber-light brown with ring of offwhite bubbles. Nose of pumpkin, nutmeg and other spices, fruit puree, and a bit of golden raisins. Taste of pumpkin, bit of watery chocolate, some winter spices, tastes like fall and yams. Medium to light carbonation.

10/12/11 bottle from bobby at azwine. beautiful color... amber-ish with a soft ow head. big oaky nose... added notes include a bunch of warm cooking spices, caramel, earth, brown fallen leaves, gourd and alcohol warmth. the flavor shows much the same... aside from the sweetness it is great. the body is fuller than medium from some creaminess after the carbonation settles... alcohol and tannins dry it out pretty swell. nice. 8.5/5/7/3/16

This is not your average beer folks! Awesome unique flavor and at 10 percent it kicks your butt. Earthy vegetable and burnt sugar. Oak barrel inn the aroma. Silky, syrupy texture. Very addictive barrel aroma. Spices are not that noticeable. Mostly pumpkin, barrel and alcohol. I polished this bottle off in no time and was happy as a clam. I will try anything from this brewery after trying this. I hope they make a sour out of this.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Pours a clear, ruby color with a tight bubbly cap of foam. The nose is of vanilla, pumpkin, wood, nutmeg and cinnamon. The pumpkin is apparent but not overwhelming and dominating the taste. Nutmeg, cinnamon, and spices help to downplay the pumpkin sweetness. The taste is semi-sweet. The malts add a bread character and the aftertaste is of spent cloves and vanilla. The oak character adds a nice lingering dimension to push it into a snifter and truly make it imperial. This is a really solid beer. It’s not the normal take on a pumpkin beer. The oak aging really did something unique to this brew. It’s well balanced and frankly, brilliant.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - FEB 16, 2012
Clear amber gold, creamy beige head. Aroma of spice, light pumpkin, some oak, light tart. Taste is sweet, lots of toffee, mild pumpkin and spice. Pretty good, but no Pumking. Medium body, high carbonation. Fairly nice beer, pretty sweet, I don’t get a lot of oak either. Medium body, medium high carbonation.

Steeeve (326) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Dark ruby tinged brown with a thin light brown head that leaves a ring throughout the life of the beer. Welcoming vanilla pumpkin aroma, bubbling with brown sugar, cinnamon and spice. Light oaky notes. Taste is sweet, mainly pumpkin with a little vanilla. Not really much spice, but it is over 3 months old so i suppose there shouldn’t be. A little bit of bourbon and oak, but not an overwhelming amount. Palate is big and full through the finish, which is somewhat vegetal and has a bit of alcohol burn. Overall pretty good, not fantastic. The bourbon is not that noticeable, and it’s hard to tell how good the underlying pumpkin ale really is.
